£725,000 via DOMVS, Wareham: 01929 501119

This charming 3-bedroom house is in an enviable position on the popular Queens Road. Enter an enclosed porch, and onwards to the ENTRANCE HALL, from which all rooms lead. There is also cleverly designed storage space tucked into the base of the stairs for everything from shoes to Christmas decorations.

From the hall you walk into the centre of the KITCHEN / BREAKFAST ROOM, which is spacious, flooded with light from windows at both ends, has solid wood flooring, and makes a spectacular entertaining space. To the left of this room is a contemporary kitchen area with a bistro table below a window offering views down to the sea. It is well fitted with sleek units, open shelving, and space for all the appliances you might expect in a large modern family kitchen (including an impressive double electric oven and gas hob). To the right of this room is the dining area large enough to accommodate a sizeable family dining table. Windows looks out onto the gardens and double doors between the kitchen and breakfast area open into a glazed BOOT ROOM offering access out onto a sunny terraced area, ideal for alfresco breakfasts. From the other side of the hall, there is a further double reception room with a Scandinavian feel. This room features bleached wooden floors, log burner and with masses of light. To the right-hand side sofas and chairs are wrapped around a contemporary log burner, with a window opening to the front garden. To the left is space for more formal dining or a reading / music room looking out onto the rear garden. At the end of the hallway is a CLOAKROOM with W.C. and wash hand basin, next to this a LAUNDRY ROOM which also has a shower. This has space and plumbing for both washing machine and dryer.

Up the staircase to the first floor LANDING with doors to the three bedrooms and the bathroom. At the top of the stairs is a workspace area below a Velux™ window which offers the perfect spot for craft work or office space. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is a double, with windows on three sides. You will be drawn to the main window which offers breath taking views to Swanage Bay. BEDROOM TWO is a twin / double bedroom with Velux™ windows on both sides. The right hand Velux™ looks out over the bay to Old Harry Rocks and Bournemouth. The left hand Velux™ looks over the garden. BEDROOM THREE is also a double bedroom with space under the eaves for additional storage. A large window looks out onto the main garden. The family BATHROOM is decorated in neutral tones and includes a wash hand basin, W.C, bidet, warm storage, but most impressively a magnificent walk-in shower…. just as you might expect to find in the suite of a smart hotel.

To the front of the house there is a gravel drive with space to park two cars and to the right raised beds where the current owners grow a mix of vegetables and cut flowers for the house. The perimeter is bordered by a cleverly pleached hedge that allows in light but affords plenty of privacy.

A gate to the side of the house leads to the main garden (and to the boot room, for alternative access to the house). In front of you is another graveled area that has a table and chairs. This is bathed in morning sunshine for impromptu outdoor breakfasts. Up a few steps and there is a lawned area with an attractive bench set under an evergreen tree offering a shady alternative for your morning coffee. Meandering around and you come to the elevated long terrace, paved in attractive stone slabs with ponds on one side and elevated beds on the other. It has a definite feel of an Italian garden, lined with ever green trees and basked in sunshine. At one end is a charming chalet that is useful for both storage and as an alternative cozy spot for chiller days. The family use the terrace for evening meals where they want to capture the last of the day’s sunshine.

Looking across the rooftops of Swanage and out to the bay this a much sought-after area, and this location more envied than most.

It's just a 7-minute walk to the beach and Parade offering easy access to Swanage’s national and independent stores, cafes, and restaurants. Swanage also offers a program of events throughout the year, from music events and festivals to the annual carnival and regatta. Alternatively, a 20-minute walk to Durlston Castle and the cliff top walks looking across The Channel to The Isle of Wight and onwards around the Isle of Purbeck.
