This substantial semi-detached family house occupies a pleasant slightly elevated position near the western outskirts of Swanage overlooking open country to the Purbeck Hills in the distance. Ailsa Craig is thought to have been built during the 1930s and is of traditional cavity brick construction, the upper part being cement rendered with granite chippings under a concrete tiled roof.

The property offers well planned, family accommodation close to local schools and other amenities. It also has the advantage of a good sized South facing garden, a detached garage and off-road parking for several vehicles.

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.  To the south is Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline.

The attractive arched entrance porch and hall welcome you to Ailsa Craig. Leading off, the good sized living room is at the front of the property and has a Purbeck stone fireplace and views across open country to the Purbeck Hills. Beyond, the open plan kitchen dining room is South facing. The dining area has space for a Range style cooker and double glazed casement doors opening to the paved patio and rear garden.
