This is a rare opportunity to acquire a superior residence standing in a large plot situated in an excellent position on the southern slopes of Swanage at Durlston and close to the Townsend Nature Reserve. No 22 Russell Avenue was designed and built to a high standard for the current owner in recent years and the property offers well planned generously sized accommodation, which flows naturally throughout. The principal rooms enjoy a pleasant southerly aspect and uninterrupted extensive views of the adjoining countryside, with the sea in the distance from the garden. The grounds, which are without doubt a superb feature of this property, measure approximately 1.32 acres (0.534 hectares). Quietly situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, Russell Avenue is considered by many to be the premier residential area of Swanage and is perfectly located for walkers, dog owners, the dramatic coastline and a haven for a diversity of wildlife close by.
