These outstanding premises are situated in the centre of Swanage, opposite the library and some 200m from the town square and sea front. Built around the turn of the 20th Century, it has a most attractive facade of brick and stone with balcony leading from the principal rooms on the first floor. The building is divided into a retail unit of approximately 74.7 sq metres on the ground floor; the upper floors are particularly spacious and extremely well maintained offering a 6 bedroom maisonette, which could easily be sub-divided to form smaller units, subject to planning consent.
