This is a unique opportunity to acquire a charming substantial period Purbeck stone house quietly situated in a conservation area less than 200metres from the seafront jetty, the Pier and the Downs.

Of historic note, the original building was a barn and is thought to date back to the late 17th Century. It has been enlarged and extensively altered  with sensitivity to offer a character home with an easy living style. A wealth of character remains including exposed stone walling, beamed ceilings and stone fireplace with wood burning stove. It has been decorated throughout in a natural decor accentuating the natural light and spatial feeling.

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.
