4 Bedroom House - £795,000

This FOUR BEDROOM, CHARACTERFUL & LARGE FAMILY HOME with spacious garden retains many original features and is in a location within approximately 0.5 miles of Swanage town centre and amenities, local primary and secondary schools.

Enter via an entrance porch, which has ample space for outdoor shoes and coats, through a secondary door into the generous hallway. The living room is situated at the front of the property and benefits from an original, ornate open fireplace with woodburning stove, and large, alcoved bay window allowing for plenty of natural, westerly light. Adjacent the well-proportioned dining or drawing room with original wooden mantel has a French door providing access into the rear garden.

The spacious kitchen offers a range of wall and base level units, ample space for a range of appliances and a door into the rear garden. Open to the kitchen is ample room for informal family dining or entertaining.

On the ground floor is a useful cloakroom, with low-level W.C. and wash hand basin.

Stairs rise from the bright hallway to the first floor and three good sized bedrooms. The main bedroom benefits from a large double glazed window with pretty coloured panes, allowing ingress of evening sunshine. This room opens into a fourth bedroom, useful for perhaps infant's room, dressing room or large study and has a door onto the landing.

Bedrooms two and three are both generously sized doubles and both offer a pleasant outlook onto the rear garden. The family bathroom comprises a panelled bath with shower attachment, a low-level W.C and wash hand basin. A loft hatch with drop-down ladder provides access to a large loft space which has Velux window, is boarded, insulated, and offers potential to extend into the loft, subject to the relevant permissions.

Externally, the front garden is partly laid to shingle and the remainder to lawn. A side gate provides access into the rear garden predominantly laid to lawn and the remainder an attractive patio. At the foot of the garden with rear access is space for parking and an impressive garage/workshop with power and light.

Subject to the relevant planning permissions there is potential to extend the property to the side, or form a building plot.

This attractive and deceptively spacious property has flexible accommodation, is well presented throughout and offers great potential to enlarge or develop. It is offered with no onward chain.

Thanks to all of the team at Oliver Miles for making the sale of our house as smooth and comfortable as possible. Your professional and friendly assistance has been greatly appreciated with easy to understand updates right through the process.

Oliver Miles handled the purchase of our new property. It was a long and challenging transaction. Oliver Miles demonstrated great professionalism in progressing the transaction and using local contacts to keep moving things along and keeping all parties informed.

We are very grateful for their help and support and wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would certainly use Oliver Miles in the future. Many thanks to Jackie, John and the team.

I have just sold a property with the help of Oliver Miles Estate Agent. I can't thank the staff enough for their help and support over the last few months.

They have first class knowledge of the local market; they are all very professional, and always friendly and helpful. Jackie in particular was an absolute lifeline to me at times: always supportive and very, very efficient.

I would certainly use their services again, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They will help to make buying / selling your property so much easier (let's face it - moving is not the most stress-free thing to do!). Thank you all at Oliver Miles.
