DETACHED 3 BEDROOM HOUSE IN QUIET PRIVATE ROAD ON OUTSKIRTS OF CORFE CASTLE WITH GARAGE, PARKING & LARGE GARDEN WITH DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL SUBJECT TO PLANNING PERMISSIONS
Located halfway between Wareham and Swanage on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset. The dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle stand on a natural hill guarding the main route through the Purbeck Hills. The village is constructed almost completely from the local grey Purbeck limestone and comprises two main streets, East Street and West Street, linked at their north end at the Square. Around the square, with its cross, commemorating Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee of 1897 are a number of shops, village bakery, churches, public houses, tea rooms and hotels.
From the Square you can easily access the Castle ruins or visit the Model Village, depicting how the castle looked before it was destroyed in the English Civil War. You can also easily access the Corfe Castle to Swanage Historic Steam Railway, the station has been restored and offers a relaxing way to visit nearby Swanage and Norden Halt.
Steeped in history and folklore, Corfe Castle and the surrounding area formally owned by the Bankes Estate, was bequeathed to the National Trust during 1980’s. To the south of the village is Corfe Common, a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, as is a large area of heathland stretching northwards as far as the southern shore of Poole Harbour. Burial mounds around the common suggest that the area was occupied from 6000 BC.
Half Acre is a Purbeck Stone detached house with tiled roof located on the south-east outskirts of the village and directly adjoining Corfe Common to the rear. The extensive garden enjoys sunshine throughout the day.
