3 bedroom terraced house for sale

Swanage, Dorset BH19 2EJ

£400,000 via DOMVS, Wareham: 01929 501119

This Purbeck stone and brick, Victorian terraced house sits proudly at the top of the hill. Once a workers cottage, and now a Swanage seaside retreat.

The location rewards you with fabulous sea and rural views from the windows, once you've climbed the stairs in the house.

The current owners love the access to both beaches and nature reserves and of course the sandy town beach.

Here you will find cosy rooms with recognisable Victorian features; pretty bedroom ornamental fireplaces and stripped wooden floors. The house leads you out to the sunny south facing garden, you need to explore it to understand the practicalities and whimsical nature of the house.

Step through the front door, and you are straight into the cosy sitting room. Wide stripped floorboards run through and a cute log burner sits in the wall, waiting to warm you in colder months. Drawing your eye out of the room, is the window to the roof tops of Swanage and Purbeck hills beyond.

Through an original stripped wooden door, to the DINING ROOM, and KITCHEN beyond.

At one end, the dining area is super cosy and could easily become the main place to gather. There is space for a table and chairs, or you may want to add a sofa, for your family and guests to hang out whilst dinner is being prepared. The kitchen is practical, with space for white goods and there is plenty of workspace and storage. There is a handy downstairs cloakroom and access to the garden too.

From the First Floor landing you find DOUBLE BEDROOM ONE, with original flooring and a pretty ornamental fireplace. The window leads your eye out to a glimpse of a sea view and to the Purbeck hills beyond. On this floor, there is the FAMILY BATHROOM, with a large bath and shower over, W.C., and hand wash basin.
BEDROOM TWO, has built in cupboards and views from the window to the rear garden and rooftops beyond.

The second floor is accessed via a staircase leading to the PRINCIPAL DOUBLE BEDROOM, with characterful sloping ceilings and dormer windows affording spectacular views to Swanage Bay, what a view to wake up to?!

The approach to Alma Terrace is off Queens Road, where a private road leads you to the terrace and your very own parking spot. Unusual and a privilege in Swanage.

The sunny, enclosed south facing garden, has been set up for simply enjoying the outside. It could easily be transformed into a simple garden, by those with know-how!

However, at the moment, there is a super patio which has space for a bistro set and then decking to the rear, where you can easily place sun loungers.

At the rear of the garden, there is a summer house, which can store all the garden furniture, or should you want, could be turned into your own yoga studio or home office.

Swanage is known for its long sandy beach, eclectic shops and restaurants, folk and jazz festivals.

Cliff top and downs walks are within a short distance and Swanage town centre is a downhill walk away.

Townsend Nature Reserve is a great place to walk the dogs, and is only a short walk from the house. Studland beach is approximately 5 miles and the riverside town of Wareham is just 10 miles.
