The Olympic development is tastefully and perfectly located.- With great open plan living and all the mod cons required for day to day living.

Having been built to house the International sailing teams for the 2012 Olympics, No 41 is on the doorstep of world class watersport facilities, from sailing to windsurfing. A great base for squad training or if you are attending sailing events at WPNSA.
Sitting on the Jurassic coast, the house is also the perfect base for both dramatic and leisurely trekking or cycling.
Spectacular Chesil beach is 3 minutes away on foot miles of steep, smooth pebbles. Great fun for watching the waves crash on the shore or throwing stones into the sea. For the more sedate, a walkway runs across the back of the beach for an easy promenade. A cafe also provides a superb bird spotting. A 10 minute drive to a huge sandy beach at Weymouth where the water is very safe for swimming. Often donkeys & fairground rides on the beach but large enough to find a quiet spot too!
