Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This two-bedroom, Grade II listed property sits in a highly desirable area of the Saxon walled, quayside town of Wareham. The property itself is the perfect project for anyone looking to completely refurbish a pretty cottage with a private courtyard garden, and situated in a small square. All within walking distance of the river Frome.

The front door opens into a small LOBBY, which then leads you into the SITTING/DINING ROOM. The sitting room area has an open fireplace, and a window to the front, while the dining area has a window looking out to the rear garden. The room benefits from understairs storage and an airing cupboard, and has the potential to be a lovely family area. From the dining area, a door opens into the KITCHEN, which is in need of modernisation, but has a lovely wide window overlooking the rear garden, and a back door into the garden.

Stairs rise from the main living area to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING. BEDROOM ONE is a large double room with a small built-in wardrobe and views across the square. BEDROOM TWO is a single room with pretty views over the rear garden to St Mary's Church tower. The BATHROOM, is also in need of modernisation, but is a suprisingly good size.

This property is a blank canvas for someone looking to put their mark on a very sweet cottage in the heart of a charming market town.

To the rear of the property is COURTYARD GARDEN with the potential to be a real delight. Fenced on either side and walled at the end, it enjoys superb views of St Mary's Church. There is scope to make this a stunning, peaceful haven.

The property is perfectly located in the heart of the historic, Saxon walled town of Wareham, the 'gateway to the Isle of Purbeck'. Within easy walking distance is the picturesque quay on the River Frome, and Wareham's abundance of eclectic shops, cafes and restaurants - along with its well-loved independent cinema. The stunning beaches of Studland, Lulworth and Swanage are a short drive away, and the Purbeck Hills and Arne Nature Reserve are also close-at-hand. The Isle of Purbeck boasts several good golf clubs, Wareham itself has a yacht club and, on a practical note, benefits from a mainline rail link to London Waterloo.

From DOMVS' Wareham office at 8 South Street, turn right and walk towards the quay. Cross over at the pedestrian crossing outside the Bear Hotel, then turn left at Heirlooms Jewellers to join the pedestrian walkway. Walk across St John's Hill Square and bear right towards Church Street, where the property can be found on the left-hand side.
