£850,000 via Corbens, Swanage: 01929 501050

This character residence is situated in an excellent position on the southern slopes of Swanage at Durlston and close to the Townsend Nature Reserve. Of historic note, the house was formerly part of a Manor House constructed c.1920  which was converted and extended into three properties sometime in the early 1970s. It is constructed of stone and has many sculptured stone details in the property and garden boundary walls. Solar panels have been fitted to the property which have generated an income of approximately £1,000 in the last 12 months.

Quietly situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, Russell Avenue is considered by many to be the premier residential area of Swanage and is perfectly located for walkers, and dog owners, the dramatic coastline and a haven for a diversity of wildlife close by.

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 mix of old stone cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings. Durlston is close by and is a gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site.
