This fine detached Purbeck stone residence is well situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Worth Matravers approximately 100 metres from the village green and duck pond.

‘Orchard Cottage’ was originally custom built during the 1980s which has undergone a meticulous and sympathetic extension and renovation resulting in an exceptionally fine home with a particular focus on natural light. The exterior reflects the area’s rich architectural history whilst the interior has a feeling of contemporary warmth creating a graceful, relaxed home offering an easy living style. High quality materials combine seamlessly with technology to unite the peace and tranquility of the countryside with the demands of modern living.

Worth Matravers stands on a headland about 1 mile from the sea and is nationally renowned for its scenic beauty. The area is particularly known as a haven for walkers and naturalists and has remained completely unspoilt over the years. 4 miles to the East is the seaside resort of Swanage, and the market town of Wareham is some 9 miles distant, the latter having a main line rail link to London Waterloo (some 2.5 hours). Much of the area is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

‘Orchard Cottage’ boasts a number of superior design features including high quality kitchen and bathroom suites, Oak flooring to the ground floor.
