Bladon is considered to be one of the best houses in the area and stands in a fine residential location outside of the picturesque village of Worth Matravers commanding extensive and panoramic views to the South over the surrounding open country and the sea.
Built in the 1930s it occupies a prominent position adjoining open country and stands well off the road approached by a private driveway.  The building has attractive external elevations of natural Purbeck stone under a pitched roof covered with stone tiles.  It has been occupied by the present family for some 40 years and whilst in need of updating it has many quality features.
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 West 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 and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline.  

The entrance porch leads to a spacious hall with a feature wooden staircase.  Approached from the hall are two large reception rooms, the drawing room featuring an attractive Purbeck stone fireplace and the dining room opening out to the garden through French doors.  The kitchen/breakfast room, with electric Aga, together with pantry and utility room, leads from the inner hall.  A third reception room/study leads from the kitchen.  All of the principle rooms have extensive southerly views over the surrounding open country to the English Channel in the distance.
