This detached Chalet Bungalow is set on a sizeable corner plot on a quiet residential road a few minutes' walk to the beach and just over half a mile from Swanage town centre. Parks and open spaces are located nearby as well as Beach Gardens with its green bowls, tennis courts and putting green.

There is space for a fridge/freezer and serving hatch to the living/dining room. The kitchen window overlooks the rear garden and a rear door takes you to the parking area.
The living-dining room spans the length of the ground floor, has a feature fireplace and a radiator at each end. Four windows flood this spacious room with light.

From the hallway an internal door opens into the garage, currently used for storage with plumbing for a washing machine.

This would make this delightful property perfect as a family home or, alternatively, as a holiday let investment opportunity.
This property is currently holiday let and has a strong history of bookings. The annual gross turnover in 2023 was approximately £21,000 and is run predominantly from early Spring until Autumn. The property is scheduled to be holiday let again throughout 2024 and therefore would make a good business venture for its next suitors.

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.
