  • Bedrooms: 4
This substantial detached house is situated in an elevated position in a fine residential area on the Southern slopes of Swanage. The property is conveniently located about two thirds of a mile from the town centre and Swanage beach and some 800 metres from Durlston Country Park, which is part of the world renowned Jurassic Coastline.

The property was originally constructed in 1897 and has external brick elevations under a pitched roof covered with slate. The property has been substantially updated throughout by the current owners and is immaculately presented in a modern shabby chic style, fluent throughout principal rooms.

The seaside town of Swanage lies some 9 miles from the market town of Wareham which has main line rail link to London Waterloo (some 2.5 hours). The popular conurbations of Poole and Bournemouth and the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula are also within easy reach via the Sandbanks toll ferry.

One of the finest features of this property is the stunning sea views across Swanage Bay to Ballard Down and Old Harry Rocks in the distance. These views are especially enjoyed from the Eastern side of the property and the North facing Velux windows on the second floor. Further features include Victorian style fireplaces which are the focal points in each reception room, attractive wood stripped flooring, East facing bay windows, landscaped rear garden, detached outbuilding and timber chalet. The property offers generous and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors, currently comprising 3 reception rooms, fitted kitchen, 4 double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower), bathroom, shower room, separate WC and pantry.
