Bedrooms: 6
This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family residence with views through the trees to Swanage Bay and Durlston Country Park. Located in an excellent elevated position in a fine residential area on the Southern slopes of Swanage, it is within easy reach of Durlston Country Park and the Townsend Nature Reserve.

Set in attractive walled grounds, providing a considerable amount of privacy; the property, whilst in need of some updating offers spacious character accommodation which has been carefully planned to take advantage of the abundance of natural light and provides the option of an annexe, if required. Crown Hill is approached by a wide driveway which leads to the detached double garage/workshop and provides parking for several vehicles. At the side and rear, the attractive garden is lawned with mature flowers, shrubs and trees, timber summerhouses and stone outbuilding.

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 cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings.

The entrance porch leads to the spacious hall, with feature fireplace, stained glass window and window seat. Beyond is the generous living room with wood burning stove, large bow window with window seats and an attractive herringbone woodblock floor. The superb kitchen/dining room is fitted with a range of light units, contrasting worktops, Butler sink and a range style oven. The garden room has double doors opening to the garden, extending the living/outdoor space. To the side of the property is a large breakfast room enjoying views over the garden, a laundry room, boot room and cloakroom.
