This substantial end of terrace cottage, formerly local authority owned is situated in a popular residential area some 500 metres from the village square, castle ruins and open country. It is thought to have been built  during the 1930s and is of traditional cavity construction with a pebbledash finish under a pitched roof covered with slate tiles.

Whilst in need of a general update throughout, 58 West Street has the considerable advantage of a large garden. The property is subject to restrictive covenants which state that only one dwelling can be built on the land, however, in our opinion there is the possibility of creating a separate dwelling on the north-western side of the property, subject to consent and a variation of the restrictive covenant.

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London, Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

Beyond, the kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of units, light worktops and integrated electric oven and hob. A good sized shower room (formerly fitted with a bath) and the glazed rear porch completes the accommodation on this level.
