Bedrooms: 3
This most attractive Grade II Listed detached cottage of character is situated on the outskirts of Swanage overlooking open farmland, approximately one and a half miles from the town centre and a similar distance from the village of Langton Matravers.

Oak Ridge Cottage is thought to date back to the early 18th Century and is of Purbeck stone construction under a stone tiled roof. The exterior reflects the area’s rich architectural history and the interior has a feeling of relaxed warmth offering an easy living style with some fine original character features. This delightful cottage seamlessly unites the peace and tranquillity you would expect of a character home and the peacefulness of the open countryside around.

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. Swanage has an active shopping centre, with branches of a number of multiple stores. To the south is the Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline.

The gabled porch welcomes you to this charming cottage and leads to the entrance hall. To the right, the dual aspect living room has an attractive Purbeck stone fireplace with open fire and a beamed ceiling. The farmhouse style kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units and has a Range style cooker. Beyond, the dining room has a feature exposed stone wall and door opening to the rear garden.
