£699,950 via Corbens, Swanage: 01929 501050

This particularly spacious detached house is well located in a good residential position, about two thirds of a mile from the town centre and beach. The original property is thought to have been built during the 1930s although extensively extended and remodelled in the early 2010s. It is of traditional cavity construction, externally cement rendered under a pitched roof covered with slates.

146 Kings Road West has the considerable advantage of a privately accessed 3 roomed annexe, a good sized garden which adjoins the Swanage Steam Railway at the rear and off-road parking for several vehicles at the front.

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.

The entrance hall is central to the accommodation and welcomes you to this substantial family home. Leading off, the dining room has double doors opening to the living room with wide bay window at the front of the property. To the rear the kitchen is fitted with a range of cream units, contrasting worktops, integrated appliances and has double doors opening to the wide timber deck and enclosed rear garden.
