Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to introduce our much loved Swanage home, Seaside Cottage. So many happy family holidays and seaside trips must come to an end, for someone else to enjoy. A pair of semi-detached brick cottages sit at the top of Burts Lane, and Seaside Cottage has a large plot receiving all day sun with a rear ‘morning' garden, a beautiful walled south facing garden which is private from the lane, and a front garden currently with a bench to get the last part of the day. The cottage has 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 single) and a bathroom with shower. To the ground floor there is a sitting room with an open fireplace and a 16' open-plan kitchen/family room with tiled tops and uPVC patio doors to the garden. The house has uPVC double glazed windows throughout and a new gas central heating system, an outside brick cloakroom, a storage shed with areas for boats, bikes or whatever you like, to share the fun of Swanage Bay.
Burts Place is a quiet footpath leading from a connection to the Downs and cliffs to the High Street with shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and Swanage Bay with it's stone quay, beaches, Yacht Club and Pier. It is a quiet spot but just yards from the fun and the action, with a car park just beyond but also easy on-street parking. Swanage is a characterful seaside resort which connects to Wareham by road via Corfe Castle, and to Poole and Bournmouth by the chain-link ferry of around 10 minutes to Sandbanks.
