Property description

This unique, fine character property occupies a prominent corner site in the centre of Swanage, about 200 metres from the town square and sea front. The original property is thought to date back to the 1870s and was constructed by one of the benefactors, George Burt. It was substantially enlarged by the addition of the two upper floors, probably during the early part of the 20th Century, and has lower elevations of dressed Purbeck stone, the remainder being brick under a pitched roof.

The Old Town Market offers elegantly styled, spacious accommodation with an abundance of fine architectural detail and enjoys some views of Swanage Bay to Ballard Down. The property has been extensively renovated over the last two years.  Having previously been run as a successful guest house the property also gives the opportunity of creating an exceptional home with an income.

Swanage lies at the Eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck delightfully situated between the Purbeck Hills. It has a fine, safe, sandy beach, and is an attractive mixture of old stone cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings. To the South is Durlston Country Park renowned for being the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline

The entrance hall, with feature fireplace and stained glass window, welcomes you to The Old Town Market, a home of elegance and style. The formal living room enjoys a triple aspect including an attractive stained glass window and cut stone arch and architectural detail. The stylish kitchen has recently been totally refitted with an extensive range of high-quality two-tone units with contrasting worktops, induction hob and integrated appliances.  There is also a utility room with matching two-tone units and integrated appliances. Leading off the kitchen, the dining room has a spiral staircase which leads to a first floor en-suite bedroom.

There are four en-suite bedrooms on the first floor: the luxurious master bedroom, enjoys a dual aspect, with views over rooftops to Swanage Bay and Ballard Down.  The second bedroom is a good-sized double which has access to the balcony with a cast iron railing.  The third large double bedroom is currently being used as a family/sitting room.  The fourth bedroom is an exceptionally spacious room with spiral staircases, one leading down to the ground floor and one leading up to a dressing room with fully fitted wardrobes.

On the second floor there are three further en-suite double bedrooms, one of which is a spacious double/family bedroom with a large family bathroom.
