  • Bedrooms: 6
West Ower is situated in a superb rural position, sheltered by the Purbeck Hills and commands fine country views to the South. The original building is thought to have been constructed during the 1930s although substantially extended in more recent times. The eastern wing of the property has been used as B&B accommodation creating an outstanding family home with income potential.

The extensive landscaped grounds of approx. two acres provide a beautiful secluded setting and feature paved terraces, large ponds, water fountain and a timber summerhouse. To the front of the property is a Tarmac driveway with parking for two vehicles leading to a detached garage. The front garden is tiered and mostly paved with shrubs. A paddock of approximately four acres is situated adjacent to the property and is available to purchase in an additional sum, if required.

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

The spacious entrance hall welcomes you to West Ower. Glazed double doors lead through to the generously sized family living room featuring woodburning stove set on a brick and polished stone hearth. Twin double doors open to a South facing conservatory giving views across the garden. The spacious kitchen was refitted in February 2018 with an extensive range of contemporary units, contrasting worktops and quality integrated appliances. The dining room is an impressive entertaining space with feature woodburning stove, wooden floor and double doors opening to the South facing timber terrace and rear garden effortlessly blending inside and out.
