3 Bedroom Bungalow - £539,950

‘Gara’, a spacious detached bungalow is situated in a residential cul-de-sac on the southwestern outskirts of the village of Langton Matravers about 400m from the centre of the village including public house and local shop. The village also has the advantage of a bus route between Swanage and Poole, Church and local school. Countryside and coastal walks along the Jurassic Coast are within easy reach.

The seaside resort of Swanage is approximately 2/5 miles distant with the historic villages of Worth Matravers and Corfe Castle (also about 2 miles), and the market town of Wareham (9 miles) has a main line rail link to Weymouth/London Waterloo. The large towns of Poole and Bournemouth can be reached via Swanage, Studland and the Sandbanks ferry.

‘Gara’ is thought to have been built in the early 1960s and has cement rendered elevations under a concrete tiled roof. It has the benefit of uPVC double glazing and gas fired heating but does require some updating.

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.
