Press Release | Rarely Available Swanage Beach Hut Comes to the Market

DOMVS estate agency is excited to announce the sale of a sought-after beach hut in a prime position on Swanage seafront.

This is an exclusive opportunity to own a slice of coastal real estate in an area where very few beach huts come onto the open market. While most are owned by the council, just 15% are privately owned.

The brick-built hut is in an elevated position, so provides a low maintenance option protected from the elements, and priced at £70,000, it compares favourably with Dorset’s average price of £123,424 for hut (source: Moverly). Reassuringly, there is a long lease of 92 years, and owners on this stretch are responsible for a ground rent of just £16 per annum, which again, is far lower than you might expect for the privilege of such a sought-after location.

‘We are thrilled to be introducing this gem to the market,’ says John Beachamp, Sales Consultant for DOMVS estate agents. ‘With its scarcity, stunning location, and potential for significant appreciation, this beach hut is destined to captivate the imagination of those seeking a beachfront lifestyle. In my opinion, it’s the next best thing to owning a home on the water’s edge’.

The post-pandemic appeal of domestic holidays, the static supply, the increasing popularity of cold water sports and the long, hot summer of 2022 have all contributed to the increasing value of a beach hut in the area, and DOMVS does not see this wavering in the coming years. According to Rightmove, the average value of a beach hut in the UK increased 51% between 2019 and 2021, and more recently, data suggests prices have increased a further 43% in the year to June 2023.

It’s no surprise that Beach huts are growing in popularity. Locally, huts can rent for upwards of £200 per week in the height of summer and with their historic capital growth, there’s no doubt they’re a smart and safe investment’ continues John.

Mike Ford, the seller of this Swanage beach hut says “Our hut has given us great pleasure over the years, in which three generations of our family have been able to reap the rewards all year round. We’ve loved the spectacular views, as well as the direct access to the beach, and New Year’s Eve is always a special occasion for our family, when we come down to the hut and watch the firework display from, in our opinion, the best seats in town. It’s a spectacular site and we will dearly miss being able to pop down and easily set up our table and chairs for a relaxing drink.
