24 West Street is an attractive Grade II Listed building in a favoured position approximately 300 metres from the village square and Castle Ruins. It currently comprises a terraced cottage and adjoining shop, however this has not operated for many years.
The original building, thought to be of solid stone construction with cement rendered upper elevations, dates back to the early 17th Century, although it has been extended and enlarged in more recent times. Planning Permission (application no: 6/2020/0142) has recently been granted to divide the property into two separate dwellings, as shown on the insert sheet of this brochure.
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.
Currently, there is a large shop area at the front of the building with attractive bay display windows and central entrance door. Beyond there are three large store rooms and access from the shop to the integral garage. A separate side entrance leads to the large through living/dining room. The living area has a Purbeck stone fireplace with wooden mantel and fitted wood burning stove, the dining area has sliding doors which span the width of the room and open on to the paved patio and rear garden. At the rear of the property the spacious kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of units and light units and leads to an equally sized utility room. A wet room and separate WC completes the accommodation on this level.
