Property description

This detached Purbeck stone cottage is of considerable age and is thought to have originally been old stables, constructed during the 19th Century and converted to a dwelling in 1934. It occupies an excellent position at South Swanage about a third of a mile from the town centre but within easy reach of ‘The Downs’ and the coastal path.

Dormy Cottage offers flexible accommodation and is full of character and charm, featuring an open brick fireplace and large workshop/store with cobbled floor. A small area of the property was partially underpinned in 2005/2006, a Certificate of Structural Adequacy for this work is available for inspection.

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 mixture of old stone cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings. To the south is the Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline. The popular conurbation of Bournemouth and Poole is also within easy reach via the Sandbanks ferry.

The ground floor comprises living room with feature brick fireplace and wood-panelled wall, a good sized kitchen with quarry tiled floor and door leading to the conservatory. The bathroom completes the accommodation on this level.
