This attractive Purbeck stone residence is well situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Worth Matravers approximately 100 metres from the village green and duck pond.

‘Rose Cottage’ is a charming period property which has undergone a meticulous and sympathetic extension and renovation resulting in an exceptionally fine home with a particular focus on natural light. The exterior reflects the area’s rich architectural history whilst the interior has a feeling of contemporary warmth creating a graceful, relaxed home offering an easy living style.

Worth Matravers stands on a headland about 1 mile from the sea and is nationally renowned for its scenic beauty. The area is particularly known as a haven for walkers and naturalists and has remained completely unspoilt over the years. Four miles to the East is the seaside resort of Swanage, and the market town of Wareham is some 9 miles distant, the latter having a main line rail link to London Waterloo (some 2.5 hours). Much of the area is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.

‘Rose Cottage’ boasts a number of character features, combined with stylish modern luxury. The large South facing living room boasts a Purbeck stone inglenook fireplace, beamed ceiling and has casement doors leading to the paved terrace and garden, further extending the entertaining space. Beyond, the through kitchen/dining room is dual aspect and also has access to the terrace and garden.
