This is a remarkable architect designed period house with so much versatility. It could be a large multigenerational home, a home with large office space, a cookery school, a home with yoga classroom, or as it presently is, a home with accommodation for back-packers. Potentially there is a lot of scope for someone who is looking for space with the possibility of generating an income.
The present owners completely renovated the house over a period of three years, (2001-3), installing new electrics, gas, plumbing, drainage and roof tiles, as well as reinstating several original features.
Fabulous and multi-layered, this is an outstanding property, having had only 3 owners since it was built in 1898. Even so, it has had many incarnations, starting life as the local GP's surgery with a pharmacy at the rear!
Walking into the house through the VESTIBULE and into the main HALLWAY, look up to the superb atrium lantern, which floods light onto the staircase and down through the floors.
On the ground floor is a large RECEPTION ROOM, presently used as a dormitory for the Auberge, but was once the doctors waiting room and later an antique shop. The main house has 4 wonderfully large DOUBLE BEDROOMS, all with high ceilings and original fireplaces. One of the BEDROOMS has a small balcony - somewhere to sit on sultry summer evenings. There are 2 bathrooms in this part of the house - a spacious FAMILY BATHROOM and a SHOWER ROOM. A large DINING ROOM and GALLEY KITCHEN with views of the Downs and a sea glimpse.
On the next floor is a generous SITTING ROOM with more glimpses of the sea and views of the downs. The large FAMILY BATHROOM sits on the mezzanine and stairs gently wind up to the BEDROOMS. Back into the Hallway on the ground floor, up some steps through a lockable door to the Auberge. On the left is a huge KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, with numerous cabinets and units, an oven, two independent gas hobs, space for a large fridge/freezer and dining table as well as a corner window seat. This is an incredibly practical space and would make a fabulous main kitchen.
Continuing along the Auberge hallway there are two bedrooms (with bunkbeds). The UTILITY ROOM and washroom facilities (two washrooms with sinks, two showers and WC’s) are down the stairs. Also, on this lower basement level is the CELLAR, a generous space with sink and running water - masses of room for storage or as a workroom. The Auberge hallway gives access to the car parking and a very small covered courtyard area at the rear of the property.
Although the outside space is limited, the proximity to the beach, Prince Edward Gardens and Durlston country park make Swanage your back yard. There are 2 parking spaces at the rear accessed by a private walkway from the house.
Located in the very heart of the wonderful seaside resort of Swanage. There is a reason why Enid Blyton loved this area so much and based her famous novels around the beautiful landscape. Swanage has a stunning sandy beaches, lovely coastal walks and stunning views. Swanage has a fabulous selection of shops and restaurants, plenty to do all year round.
Take the A351 from Wareham through Corfe Castle into Swanage. Passing The Swanage School on your right as the road bends to the left turn right onto High Street. Continue, bearing left into Court Road, towards the town centre. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit into Station Road and follow the one-way system round and to the right. As you pass the library on your right, keep left onto High Street and take the next left, Mount Pleasant Lane and then the next left again into Hardy Close. The parking area is on the left at the end.
