A really unique property steeped in history and boasting incredible views out to Portland Bill Lighthouse and the far-reaching sea.
Originally constructed around 1949, the buildings were the location of the British Admiralty, who carried out highly classified work which took the interest of the Soviet Union, whose spies were later supplied information by civil servants who worked there before they were ultimately discovered as part of the Portland Spy ring in 1961.
Today, you will find this incredible historic and unique building has been converted into spacious high ceiling apartments and spa.
Through your own private entrance, you will find a fully-equipped utility area and stairs to the first floor where you will find a delightful open-plan living room, with kitchen, dining area and sitting area, making the perfect space for coming together and sharing stories or catching up on your favourite TV show.

Portland Bill is the most famous part of Portland and has three lighthouses. One is now a holiday cottage, one a bird observatory and one is the current lighthouse. The lighthouse is open to the public on certain days and is well worth a look round. The bird observatory is positioned well as Portland, and Portland Bill especially is a haven for birds. Other attractions include Pulpit Rock, the blowhole, passing whales and dolphins and so much more – just make time for a visit. Although many walkers make Portland Bill their end destination it actually works very well as a starting point. Head north-east along the coast to the beach at Church Ope and then up past Pennsylvania Castle to Portland Museum. Or head north-west, again along the coast, to Westcliff and stunning views across Lyme Bay. Although there are few houses at the Bill there is an excellent choice for food. The Lobster Pot is right next to the lighthouse and is open all day serving breakfasts, lunch, afternoon teas and dinners. The large grassy area also makes it an excellent place for picnics.
