An attractive, detached Victorian home, with many original features throughout; there is a wonderful mix of contemporary living with Victorian elegance, that just seems to work. It is evident that this home is going to be special before you step in. From the front door, turn around and look across Swanage Bay towards Bournemouth; from there on the views just get better the higher up the house you go.
On entering the VESTIBULE you are immediately struck by the high ceilings and light that comes into the house. The HALL has original floor tiles and on the wall of the INNER HALL is the original bell box, which is charming. The generous and stylish SITTING ROOM is a lovely room with a large fireplace housing a wood burner and a wide bay window, with window seat, overlooking the bay. A fabulous place to sit and admire the sea view. Into the sizeable KITCHEN/DINING ROOM - a fabulous space for family meals and socialising. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary wall and base units, with integrated dishwasher and a large range with 5 ring gas hob. There is so much light in this space flooding in from the dining area. The BOOT ROOM and back door can be accessed from the kitchen/dining room and the inner hall. It is sensibly fitted with wall and base units offering lots of storage and has space for a large American style fridge. Back to the main Hallway and at the far end is a contemporary SHOWER ROOM with wash basin and WC.
The stairs in the hallway rise to the next two floors and bedroom accommodation, again all with lovely Victorian features. On the FIRST FLOOR you will find the wonderfully large and stylish MASTER BEDROOM. A really pretty room with generous space and a bay window with views across Swanage Bay, out to sea towards Bournemouth and, to the other side, over the Swanage downs towards Nine Barrows. BEDROOM 2 is another large double with patio doors onto a BALCONY which is wide enough to sit on and enjoy the garden and sunshine, and which leads down to the garden. The FAMILY BATHROOM is on this level and is a large light space with a stylish claw foot bath, WC and wash basin and gives a nod to this home's Victorian past. Up again to the SECOND FLOOR and 3 further bedrooms. BEDROOM 3 is a good sized double room overlooking the garden and has an EN-SUITE shower. A perfect guest room. BEDROOM 4, yet another generous double has incredible views from the downs, across the bay to the Isle of Wight. BEDROOM 5, is a large, long single room, which also has superb sea and countryside views.
This lovely Victorian detached home is on an elevated site overlooking Swanage, the downs, Swanage Bay and the sea. The front garden is mainly large shingle and there is an ideal spot for storing bins.
The rear GARDEN is a wonderfully sunny spot. From the Utility room a back door opens onto a sheltered COURTYARD, a great space for summer family breakfasts. Up stone steps to the next level which is mainly laid to lawn and bordered, on one side with fencing and on the other with a small Purbeck stone wall and picket fencing. Up timber steps to the next level, a large deck, absolutely perfect for all day outside entertaining.
At the rear is also a SINGLE GARAGE, for car and storage and parking for one car. Access to the back is off Newton Road. There is generally ample parking on Queens Road, at the front of the house.
