If there is a land of opportunity this must be the house of opportunity. Not only is it a smart 4-bedroom house with off road parking, separate garage, great views across Purbeck, it also sits on a large plot with an additional 2 bedroom detached garden lodge (constructed with all relevant permissions granted, being ideal for holiday lets or multi generation living), plus a summer house and a separate workshop. Even more than that there is (subject to planning) the opportunity to build, perhaps two, further houses within the curtilage.

This main house is a beautifully modernised home, perfect for family living and with stunning views of Purbeck hills and the sea beyond.

The front door opens into an expansive RECEPTION HALL with an open plan feel to it. To the right is the KITCHEN which offers plenty of workspace with wall-mounted and floor-based units, oven and sink. The current owner has space for an enormous American style fridge. The four-seater table sits beneath a sunny window with views towards Swanage Bay, and Bournemouth beyond. Straight ahead of the reception hall is the LAUNDRY / BOOT ROOM area and adjacent lies a CLOAKROOM with W.C., and wash hand basin. Following the hallway around to the right walk through an attractive wooden door into the SITTTING ROOM. This delightful space has an open fireplace and light floods in from the bifold doors which open out onto a decking / sitting area which, at the uppermost level commands exceptional views.

Walking up the stairs there is an airing cupboard on the return and then up to the landing off which all rooms lead. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM has a characterful feel. One end of the room serves as a dressing area and beyond is a glorious ENSUITE complete with a walk-in shower, separate bath, W.C., and basin. BEDROOM TWO is a double room, again with a large picture window offering exceptional countryside views. BEDROOM THREE is a double bedroom with sunny views out across the town and to the sea beyond. BEDROOM FOUR is a single bedroom which the current owner uses as a home office, somewhat distracted by more rural views. Also off the landing is the FAMILY BATHROOM, complete with walk-in shower, W.C., and basin.

THE DETACHED GARDEN LODGE is accessed either from the main garden or by walking down the lane that runs alongside the house, where there is a separate access into the garden, and in turn the path leads to this light, contemporary lodge. Walking into the LIVING SPACE which is flooded with light from several large windows and views across the garden to its own seating area. There is a sizeable KITCHEN with breakfast bar, oven, sink, fridge, and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a surprisingly large PANTRY which could have several alternative uses. To the right as you walk in is the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM with plenty of storage and a long window. Next to this is the BATHROOM with walk in shower, W.C., and basin. On the other side of the principal bedroom is the SECOND BEDROOM which is a spacious single and, again, with charming views across the Lodge’s Garden.

Standing at the front door the first thing to notice are the expansive views of rolling hills and the rooftops of Swanage. At the front of the property there is parking for 2 cars surrounded by neat, well planted beds, including a palm tree.

The main garden is of significant proportions. From the bi-fold doors there is a wide decked area, providing the ideal spot for al-fresco dining. Following the garden down there is a large WORKSHOP AND STORE. Beyond this is the garden, currently enjoyed by the garden Lodge with raised beds, lawn area, seating, and a separate CHALET which the current owner planned to use as a craft room, but again has several potential uses. Garden Lodge, Chalet and Workshop and store were all installed 2 years ago and have power.

If you are looking for more than just spectacular views and contemporary living, this house offers all of this and so much more. Access to local schools is ideal, with vendor’s daughter having timed it as a 6-minute walk.

For country and coastal walks, the opportunities are endless, and the house is perfectly positioned to access the walks and villages across Purbeck. The family who owns the house have a couple of favourites. It is either up through Townsend Reserve to Durlston Lighthouse or up to Priest way and through countryside to Worth Matravers for a well-deserved Pie & Pint at the renowned Square & Compass.
