4 5 2

This handsome Victorian residence, built around 1895, is in an elevated position and surrounded by a beautiful Purbeck drystone wall, which sets the house apart from the village.

Symmetry played a significant role in Victorian architecture, and here you will find a shining example of that design principle. The footpath to the front door, is central between two bay windows, which is pleasing indeed.

The welcoming HALLWAY, invites you to step into a piece of history, where period features are preserved. Original parquet flooring is laid in the hallway, there are high ceilings, bow windows and delightfully decorated fireplaces.

The SITTING ROOM has space for seating around the pretty original fireplace and the typical Victorian bow windows, allow streams of light into the room.

The DINING ROOM, across the hall from the sitting room, has views out to the front garden. There is a small serving hatch through to the kitchen - a nod to bygone times.

The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is really the heart of the home, with the kitchen range heating both the back boiler and giving a warm ambiance. This is where the family will congregate. A delightful selection of cupboards give useful storage and give a 'retro' vibe. There is also a LARDER and a UTILITY ROOM, providing plenty of space, storage and a footprint for any changes that you may want to make.

To the rear of the house, there is a SNUG, a really cosy space to sit, it could be utilised as a home office perhaps?

Upstairs to the sleeping accommodation with DOUBLE BEDROOM (3) which has rural views out to the surrounding hills. There is a SHOWER ROOM, with a W.C., and a wash basin.

The HOBBY ROOM, also has views over the front garden and could be perfect for needlework, model making, reading or could be used as a home office. There is another DOUBLE BEDROOM (2), which is generous in size and light and bright too.

Private parking is available for multiple vehicles, including space for a motorhome or boat, ensuring that all your transportation needs are taken care of.

Corfe Castle is certainly one of Dorset's prettiest villages, the castle ruins sitting dramatically on a hill overlooking the village, much of which is made out of the stones from its ruins. The pretty Victorian station is part of the Swanage Heritage Railway and the steam trains run from Swanage through Corfe to Norden, a magical journey for all ages. The village has a variety of public houses, restaurants, tea shops and eclectic village shops, including a wonderful bakery and village stores. There is a friendly local primary school which feeds into either The Swanage School or The Purbeck School. Corfe Castle sits between the riverside town of Wareham and the stunning beaches at Swanage and Studland, this is the land of Enid Blyton stories.
