Property description

This superior detached house is located in the popular village of Corfe Castle approximately three quarters of a mile from the village Square and Castle Ruins. Sandpipers is thought to have been constructed during the early 1970s and has attractive elevations of natural Purbeck stone under a concrete tiled roof.

Standing in landscaped grounds which surround the property, Sandpipers has been refurbished and modernised by the current owners and boasts spacious, immaculately presented accommodation with many quality features.

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.

The spacious and light entrance hall welcomes you to Sandpipers. Leading off is the large living room boasting three aspects and featuring an attractive fireplace with imitation woodburning stove and casement doors to the rear garden blending inside and out to create a perfect entertaining space. The spacious kitchen/dining room is fitted with an extensive range of contemporary units with contrasting worktops and quality integrated appliances. The ground floor also benefits from a modern cloakroom and a large walk-in store with picture window, which could be used as a small study.
