  • Bedrooms: 5
This well appointed detached house is situated in a fine residential position close to the Northern outskirts of Swanage and about 1 and a half miles from the town centre. Hillside enjoys good southerly views over the town and is some 300 metres from open country and a similar distance from the local convenience store. The main property was constructed during the 1930s of cavity brick under a clay tiled roof; a substantial extension was added to the rear forming a self-contained suite (apart from kitchen) with separate access in 1980.

The seaside resort of Swanage lies at the eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck, delightfully surrounded by the Purbeck Hills. It has a fine, safe, sandy beach, and is an attractive mixture of old stone cottages and more modern properties. To the South is the Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline. The market town of Wareham which has main line rail link to London Waterloo (approx. 2.5 hours) is some 9 miles distant with the conurbation of Poole and Bournemouth being in easy reach via the Sandbanks ferry.
