This substantial detached house is situated on the eastern outskirts of this historic village in a small private residential cul-de-sac of individually built properties. The house stands in a slightly elevated position giving views over part of the village to the nearby open country and heathland.

Little Marlings is thought to have been constructed during the first half of the 20th Century, although extended in more recent times. The property is in need of updating, but offers good accommodation and large attractive landscaped garden which surrounds the house. It is predominantly of stone construction with some cement render to the extension, under a conventional pitched roof covered with plain tiles, and some flat secondary roofs.

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

The house is approached by a long driveway with particularly attractive established gardens which surround the property and are approximately 0.27 of an acre. As you enter the house, the spacious entrance hall gives access to the principal rooms comprising a large living room with double glazed casement doors to paved terrace, a second sitting room each with fireplaces and views over the garden. There is a good sized kitchen at the rear.

The first floor landing has access to a small balcony and three bedrooms, all of which enjoy views over the garden, part of the village and nearby open country. The third bedroom and bathroom are at the rear of the house. There are fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms.

At the rear of the property, there is the added benefit of a large outhouse of masonry construction with electric light and power, and a large pre-cast concrete garage, currently in poor condition. There is also a further outside store.
