Tenure: Freehold

Situated south-west of the picturesque village of Worth Matravers Laurel Cottage sits on a large plot within the private Winspit Estate. The property and gardens enjoy unobstructed views to open fields and views to the sea in the distance. The seaside town of Swanage is approximately 4 miles distant, Wareham some 7 miles with an Intercity train service from Wareham to London (Waterloo) taking approximately 2 hours. The village of Studland with its magnificent sandy beaches and the well-known Isle of Purbeck Golf Course is about 7 miles distant and Poole or Bournemouth are easily reached by road or via the Sandbanks Car Ferry.

The property comprises a detached farmhouse style house built in the late 1980s with Purbeck Stone elevations under a concrete imitation stone tiled roof. The adaptable accommodation has the benefit of oil-fired central heating with an external “Navien” oil-fired boiler new in July 2020 with 10 year guarantee serving heating radiators & hot water, uPVC double glazed windows and doors, oak strip flooring to the ground floor except to the kitchen, utility room and conservatory/dining room which have Purbeck Stone flooring and natural wood panelled doors. Other pleasing features of the property, apart from its excellent location and outlook, are the large gardens, double garage with integral suite of rooms under, double car port and ample parking area. The garage building has a large loft and, subject to the necessary permissions, is eminently suitable to convert to a residential building.

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.
