Seafields House, 16 De Moulham Road, Swanage


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family home located in one of the finest positions facing the sea and commanding unrivalled views across Swanage Bay to the Isle of Wight, Peveril Point and Ballard Down. In our opinion Seafields House is one of the best houses in this area. It occupies a double-sized plot and was built in the 1930s with several extensions added in later years. The landscaped garden is equally delightful, with paved terraces to enjoy the views and sunshine from every aspect throughout the day. The shrub borders are well-stocked, creating interest all year round - a perfect entertaining space. The house has been well maintained, but there is ample potential to shape the home to your own vision and individual needs with considerable scope for re-development.

The entrance hall welcomes you to the property and leads through to the drawing room, with far reaching views of Swanage Bay. This room is bathed with an abundance of natural light and has a large feature Purbeck stone fireplace. There is a study and two extensively fitted kitchens; the first is furnished with wooden units and opens out into a dining room with double doors to a paved terrace, seamlessly blending the indoor/outdoor entertaining space and taking advantage of the stunning views. The second kitchen is fitted with white units and has a small breakfast bar and utility cupboard. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. All rooms are generously proportioned and flow naturally throughout.
