Bedrooms: 3
This attractive detached chalet style family house with a single building plot, is well situated in a cul-de-sac near the south-eastern outskirts of the semi-rural village of Harmans Cross. Glencree is thought to have been built during the 1960s/70s and is of traditional cavity construction with external elevations of natural Purbeck stone.

Whilst in need of updating throughout, Glencree offers spacious and versatile accommodation with extensive countryside views. Standing in large, well tended grounds there is scope to create a second house within the existing garden, subject to planning consent. A pre-planning application has been submitted to Dorset Council; a response has been received stating that the severance of the land and creation of a new residential plot is acceptable in principle, subject to normal planning considerations, (i.e. design, neighbour amenity, trees, surface water arrangement and biodiversity).

The village of Harmans Cross lies in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck, some 2.5 miles from the seaside resort of Swanage and a similar distance from the historic village of Corfe Castle. It has a large modern village hall and the popular railway station serving Corfe Castle to Swanage all year round. Beaches at Studland and Swanage and the market town of Wareham are some 8 miles distant, the latter having mainline train service to London Waterloo. Much of the surrounding area is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.

You are welcomed to Glencree by the spacious entrance hall which leads through to the large dual aspect living room with Purbeck stone fireplace and wide sliding doors opening to the patio area and garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units, contrasting worktops and integrated gas hob and electric oven and leads through to the separate dining room with utility and WC beyond.
