  • Bedrooms: 3
This attractive Grade II Listed period stone cottage is the end one of a small terrace situated in the much sought after location of West Street, a short distance from Corfe Common, the Village Square and the distinctive ruins of Corfe Castle.

The cottage has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished throughout in recent years, effortlessly blending a contemporary modern style with a wealth of characterful features and magnificent views of Corfe Castle and the surrounding countryside.

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 the property. The characterful living room features a large Purbeck stone inglenook fireplace with original bread oven, a fitted woodburning stove and beamed ceiling. 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 sitting room/bedroom 3 with casement doors opening to a paved patio area and rear garden. A modern shower room completes the accommodation on this level, however the entrance hall, kitchen and shower room all benefit from underfloor heating.
