  • Bedrooms: 4
This attractive detached Purbeck stone house stands on high ground in the village of Worth Matravers with superb views down the Winspit Valley to St. Albans Head and the English Channel. Originally constructed during the 1950s, the property was extended in 1996 forming a self-contained one bedroom annexe, which could be used for holiday letting or Air BNB to create a home with income.

Seale Cottage stands in a good sized, landscaped garden and boasts spacious, contemporary and versatile accommodation with modern fitted kitchen and superb conservatory which harmoniously blends the inside and outside living areas.

Worth Matravers stands on a headland about 1 mile from the sea and is nationally renowned for its scenic beauty. The area is particularly known as a haven for walkers and naturalists and has remained completely unspoilt over the years. 4 miles to the West is the seaside resort of Swanage, and the market town of Wareham is some 9 miles distant, the latter having a main line rail link to London Waterloo (some 2.5 hours). Much of the area is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.

The large entrance porch welcomes you to Seale Cottage and leads through to the impressive South facing drawing room with fitted wood burning stove and fine views along the Winspit Valley to the English Channel in the distance. The large kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with integrated appliances and casement doors lead through to the vaulted conservatory. The main ground floor accommodation also includes a study and cloakroom.
