This property was converted from the old Portland Magistrates Court in 2009/2010. It has been very tastefully designed and has a wonderful outlook over Lyme Bay from the front and Portland Harbour from the side aspect.
It is a high end property with antique furnishings, including a king size four poster bed in the master bedroom.
It is within easy walking distance to Chesil Beach and the Olympic Sailing Venue, Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy.
The property enjoys outstanding views from the upstairs mezzanine lounge and will not disappoint.
The property accommodates 8 visitors in four bedrooms. The lounge, kitchen and dining room are all accommodated in what was originally the magistrates courtroom, providing an ‘open plan style’. With its pitch pine flooring and panelling it certainly has a ‘wow’ factor when one walks through the door. A wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the first floor, with stairway to the upper bedroom. From the kitchen a stairway leads down to the basement where there is a further bedroom with twin beds and this room has the benefit of a second kitchen attached to it. All bedrooms have access to their own bathroom and three are ensuite.
As a grade II listed building, certain features remain from the old days, including the dock which has been converted into a bar in the dining area of the room (inclusive of bar fridge). The 17 ft magistrates table was retained and now takes pride of place along the walkway to the upper lounge/study. There is even a Bell Tower on the top of the property. One cannot fail to be impressed by the grandness of this property.
Large TV with Sky Plus and ability to use internet are all plus factors for this quite remarkable and unique property.

Perfect in every way
Perfect in every way
What a wonderful find! We stayed at the house as a family group and would not fault the property in anyway. Traveling with my grandmother who is in her 90's the ground floor bedroom was perfect. the open plan living space was ideal for our group as we all had ample of space but were able to remain together in the house without being separated by walls. the view of the sea from the Gallery lounge and the outdoor terrace were beautiful. We were well informed that we had to take our own towels and the property was excellently equipped. We had guests for Sunday lunch and didn’t struggle with utensils, crockery or glasses for all twelve of us around the stunning dining table. the conversion from the original court house to a house has been completed with such care and thought from the lighting to the sound system and some amazing antiques. the modern kitchen fits perfectly in the traditional surroundings and the secret door to the bedroom is fantastic. We had no need to contact the caretaker during our stay but full contact details were available. The owner was very helpful prior to arrival and speedy in all correspondence. We would happily The Court House to anyone looking for the ideal property for a group get together. We hope to return again.
