17 Custom House Quay is a five-bedroom terraced property of stone construction believed to date from the 18th century sitting on the harbour in Weymouth. The property features a number of preserved period features including open fireplaces, cornicing and original window shutters throughout.

There is a large porch, and a roomy kitchen with an open fireplace and a lean-to conservatory incorporating a butler’s sink. The sitting room has high ceilings and a fantastic bay window with a window seat overlooking the harbour, and original exposed floorboards.

The first and second floors are home to the extensive bedroom accommodation, much of which offers marvellous harbour views. The top floor master suite, in particular, has a enviable roof terrace with 180 degree views out over the Old Harbour and Weymouth Bay.
