This outstanding property is situated within 200 metres of the sea adjacent to ‘The Downs’ and overlooking Swanage Bay. It has been meticulously and sympathetically renovated throughout in recent years resulting in an exceptionally fine home offering stylish, spacious accommodation with an abundance of character features, a large roof terrace and detached stone outbuilding forming garage, store and attic room over.

The seaside resort of 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 cottage and more modern properties. To the South is the Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline. The market town of Wareham which has main line rail link to London Waterloo (approx. 2.5 hours) is some 9 miles distant with the conurbation of Poole and Bournemouth being in easy reach via the Sandbanks ferry.

Whilst being offered as one dwelling, it is in fact two imposing houses which have been joined together, although easily separated.

Leading off, the dining room with large feature window and cast iron fireplace opens to the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of sage units, contrasting worktops and integrated appliances.
