This outstanding detached chalet style residence stands in extensive landscaped grounds of approximately half an acre. Situated in a prestige location on the southern slopes of Swanage, approximately one third of a mile from the town centre, the property commands fine winter views across the valley and bay and is within easy reach of Durlston Country Park and the Jurassic Coastal path.

Benefitting from spacious, well planned accommodation the property was constructed of natural Purbeck stone during the mid 20th Century although substantially extended and altered in more recent times. A large conservatory has also been added at the rear creating a modern easy living style with a particular focus on natural light.

The seaside resort of Swanage lies at the eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck, delightfully situated between the Purbeck Hills. It has a fine, safe, sandy beach, and is an attractive mixture of old stone cottage 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.

The spacious and light galleried entrance hall welcomes you to the property. Leading off is the large living room featuring an attractive brick fireplace with woodburning stove and casement doors to the conservatory creating a perfect entertaining space. The spacious kitchen/dining room is fitted with an extensive range of contemporary units with contrasting granite worktops and quality integrated appliances, the utility room leads off and is fitted with matching units.
