2 Bedroom Penthouse - OIEO £395,000

‘Sea Court’ is located in an elevated position, just off the town centre with outstanding and panoramic views over the town and bay to the beach, Ballard Down, Dorset & Hampshire coastline and the Isle of Wight

The seaside resort of Swanage lies at the eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck, charmingly surrounded by the Purbeck Hills. It has a safe, sandy beach, and is an interesting mixture of period stone cottages and more modern properties. It also boasts an historic steam railway. To the South is the Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline. The market town of Wareham, which has main line rail link to London Waterloo (approx. 2.5 hours), is some 10 miles distant with the large towns of Poole and Bournemouth being within reach via the Sandbanks ferry, 6 miles distant.

This Victorian building was converted into 5 apartments in 2007 to high specification. Flat 5, which covers the whole of the top floor of the building, is beautifully presented and has benefits including oak doors and solid oak flooring throughout, LED lighting, fully porcelain tiled bathrooms and electric heating with boiler and radiators.

Viewings are recommended to appreciate the views and quality of this fine penthouse apartment.

Our thanks go to Oliver Miles and his team in assisting us to find and buy our new home.

They contacted us to alert us to the availability of the property and then with great care and knowledge guided us through our purchase and were pleased to help us every step of our journey.

Peter and Emma, Swanage.

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.

Bob and Merrilyn, Swanage.

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.
