Full description

This attractive Grade II Listed Purbeck stone, thatched cottage offers contemporary living with a wealth of original character features including large Purbeck stone inglenook fireplaces, exposed stone walls, underfloor heated flagstone flooring to the ground floor and vaulted beamed ceilings to the first.  

Situated within a Conservation Area in one of the most favoured areas of Corfe Castle, a short distance from the Village Square and Castle Ruins the property is thought to be a former long house, dating back to the 17th Century and has the considerable advantage of an attractive private rear garden and a detached garage/workshop.  

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline. 

The entrance porch opens to an impressive drawing room with attractive fireplace  and folding timber doors to the large family room with triple casement doors to the rear garden blending the inside and outside living space.  The characterful dining room boasts an imposing Purbeck stone inglenook fireplace and leads to the kitchen.
