Description

This beautiful and unique property has seen various changes of use over the years. Originally believed to be a farm stable building, it subsequently became a Quaker Chapel in Victorian times and more recently a taxi stand, petrol station and garage. Now it has been lovingly transformed into a stunning home whilst maintaining lots of original features.

Hidden behind wooden gates, step into a stunning orangery with high ceilings, cobbled floor and feature vintage spiral staircase. At the rear two former stables have been converted into double rooms, both with en-suites. A wooden staircase leads to a balcony overlooking the orangery and entrance to the open plan dining area with wood burner and kitchen.

Above the kitchen and overlooking the living area, sits a mezzanine bedroom with day bed that converts to a double bed with reduced height beams. At the rear a living room with sofa bed and bi-fold doors leads onto a decked patio with palm trees overlooking the pretty rear garden.

The centre of town and sandy beach are a ten minute walk away, it's also just a ten minute walk to open countryside and Durlston Country Park.

Reviews

Very comfortable and well appointed cottage. Quirky and interesting, we had a great stay. Would highly recommend the Glass House for a holiday at any time of the year, we will certainly book again.Mrs Kelly Etheridge - 31st July 2017
It was a wonderful holiday in a charming seaside town which is as friendly as it is unpretentious. Wyke are a good company and their contact lawrence was a fantastic help and very prompt in responding to any issues we had such as coming round to look at door which was sticking and checking an extractor fan in kitchen. He is an asset to Wyke. The standards of cleaning are exemplary... I tried to find dirt... There wasn't any... It was spotless just how we love it.Miss Catherine Wiblin - 10th July 2017
The Glass House was a home from home, we loved and appreciated the quality of the renovation and attention to comfort detail as well as the location. The kids loved it ... so always a bonus!Miss Elaine Miles - 23rd June 2017
We had a wonderful week staying at The Glass House. The position of the house is a lovely 10 minute walk into the main area of Swanage and the beach. Plus, in the opposite direct, within 5 minutes your in Durlston Nature Reserve! The beds are so comfy and the facilities are excellent. The house was impeccably clean and felt like home form home. The welcome pack on arrival is a lovely touch. We will be returning one day, many thanks xMrs Nicola Swales - 5th June 2017
The Glass House is beautiful, we'd hope to return. Well placed for an easy walk into lovely old Swanage, or the beach, and numerous days out within easy reach via a short car journey. The property is beautifully finished & cosy. We'd happily move in!Miss S Cox - 28th February 2017
Great place to have a dog-friendly beach holiday no matter what the weather. Ms A Wolfson - 16th February 2017
This is a lovely house. It is very interesting, an excellent imaginative and stylish conversion. It is thoughtfully and very well equipped and very comfortable to stay in.Mrs K - 2nd September 2016
Beautiful, quirky home. Spacious, with everything you need. We loved it and will want to stay there if we return to Swanage.Superb service from Wyke. I had a last minute, urgent request and you couldn't have been more helpful!. Thank you so much for 'saving' our holiday.Mrs J - 6th July 2016
