Sorry, but this property is no longer available or has been taken off the market
Located in the attractive coastal town of Swanage, this large, detached Edwardian property has the potential to be a terrific family home with many origial Edwardian features. Due to unforseen circumstances, a refurbishment program on this property has not been finished - offering you a chance to to do just that.
The front door opens into a large PORCH - with plenty of room for buckets, spades and wet suits! - and then into a wide HALLWAY beyond. This home has two generous-sized reception rooms; the SITTING ROOM with bay window overlooking the front garden, and the DINING ROOM, from which a door opens to the courtyard area of the rear garden. To the rear aspect, the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is expansive and has the potential to be an exceptional family room. From here a door leads into a UTILITY ROOM and a spacious WET ROOM. At the far end of the kitchen is a rear LOBBY providing access to an additional WC, and a door to the rear garden. There is planning in place to reconfigure this area, and two replacement sash windows are already at the property ready and waiting for the work to be carried out.
Returning to the the hallway, stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING. To the front, BEDROOM ONE is a very large room stretching the full width of the property, and benefitting from a bay window and period fireplace. BEDROOM TWO is also a large double room with period fireplace. Along the landing and down a couple of steps are BEDROOM THREE, a double room overlooking the rear garden, and BEDROOM FOUR, a small double/large single room overlooking the courtyard area. Midway between the four bedrooms is the FAMILY BATHROOM.
Outside, a path runs all the way around the property. The private FRONT GARDEN is mainly stone paved, with tall shrub borders surrounding, though, with appropriate highways permission, there could be space created for off-road parking.
To the rear of the property is a paved COURTYARD area, which leads to the lawned REAR GARDEN. Bordered with timber fencing and a stone wall, this is the perfect spot for sitting and enjoying the sunshine - when not at the beach, of course!
Occupying a generous corner plot, the property is approx. half a mile from Swanage beach and town centre. It is easy to see why Enid Blyton loved this area so much and based her famous novels around the beautiful landscape; Swanage boasts sandy beaches, inspiring coastal walks and stunning views. With a fabulous selection of shops and restaurants, there is plenty to do here all year round. A famous, heritage railway with steam and diesel trains runs from Swanage to the historic Corfe Castle; the riverside market town of Wareham is approx. 10 miles to the west; and Sandbanks chain ferry transports you to Bournemouth and Poole in just four minutes.
Take the A351 from Wareham through Corfe Castle and into Swanage. Passing The Swanage School on your right, follow the road into Victoria Avenue, then turn right into Kings Road West. Continue towards the end of Kings Road West, where the property can be found on the right-hand side on the corner of Cecil Road.
