CORFE CASTLE

£500,000

Guide price

These unique character premises are located in an excellent position in the centre of Corfe Castle, approximately 300 metres from the Village Square and Castle. Originally two properties, Number 46 being a shop and Number 48 a Grade II Listed cottage, access between the two was formed by the current owner in 1987. There is considerable potential for the premises to be carefully remodelled and presents several interesting options, subject to the requisite Planning and Listed Building Consents. The retail unit could easily be let and would achieve a rental in the region of £10,000 - £12,000 pa.

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. The popular Swanage steam railway seasonally connects Wareham to the mainline train service to London Waterloo and the market town of Wareham is some 10 miles distant. Much of the area surrounding the village is owned by the National Trust and is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

The retail area is currently a large showroom space with fitted display cabinets and double fronted display windows. There is also a large safe room and WC. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a living room, dining room, kitchen, WC, utility room/porch.

The two bedrooms on the first floor have been combined to form a generously sized room, currently used as an office. The original separate entrance doorways remain, therefore, this could easily be returned to two bedrooms. There is a bathroom with dressing room leading off and separate WC on the first floor.

It has a rear garden which is lawned and partly bound by Purbeck stone walling. The cottage will have a private entrance which will be created without compromise of amenity by way of screening the current driveway with fencing. The current owner will be submitting a planning application to demolish the existing garage/ undercover storage area and build a replacement single garage.
