Built in 1947 as a 3 bedroom detached house, Pig Oak House was substantially extended circa 1980. It has a LARGE GARAGE/WORKSHOP which, subject to planning consent, could be converted into accommodation. The house is connected to mains electricity and water, and has private drainage, oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazed windows, and solar panels which subsidises the hot water energy costs. It is set back from the lane, and its gardens are an outstanding feature.
Pig Oak House is conveniently situated for the post office/shop and Stocks Inn in the nearby village of Furzehill, and less than 2 miles from Wimborne town centre. There is a First School in the nearby village of Gaunts Common, and Dumpton Preparatory School is within a short drive. The wider area is well served by state and independent schools, and there is good access by road to the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth.
There is a covered entrance way with tiled floor, an entrance vestibule with a door to the garage, and an inner hallway. The living room has a large picture window to the front and a full height brick open fireplace with a tiled hearth. The separate dining room has a wood burning stove on a tiled plinth, and sliding doors to the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room has modern units, fan oven, ceramic hob, extractor, space for dishwasher and fridge, a tiled floor, and a lovely outlook over the rear garden. The rear porch/utility room has space for a washing machine and a freezer, and there is a cloakroom.
The first floor landing has a door giving access to a potential balcony with a superb view of the garden
There are 5 double bedrooms, along with a well presented bathroom and a separate shower room.
Pig Oak House enjoys a wide pavioured driveway with space for at least 6 vehicles leading to a large integral double garage (with an electric up-and-over door and a walkway to a particularly large workshop).
The front garden has a large, flat lawn enclosed by mixed hedges and established oak and fir trees.
The rear garden is almost square and offers complete privacy, being enclosed by timber fencing, post-and-rail fencing and laurel and conifer hedges. There is a large undulating lawn with well planted borders offering a wealth of flowers and shrubs including wild roses, holly, rhododendrons and foxgloves. Near the house there is a large sun terrace with planted walling.
