The property was traditionally constructed by a well known local building company in 2005, with facing brick, render and timber shiplap elevations under a high thatched and tiled roof (with a tall brick chimney.) Connected to mains electricity and water, it has a private drainage system, (although mains drainage is now available in the village), and a security alarm.
Since 2017 the cottage has undergone a programme of complete modernisation and refurbishment with an emphasis on attention to detail and a high quality finish. Features include Karndean flooring throughout the ground floor, bathrooms supplied by Christchurch Bathrooms, taps by Perrin & Rowe, a Diakin airsource heating system, a pressurised hot water system, timber double glazed windows throughout, and an outstanding Neptune ‘Shaker Suffolk’ kitchen/dining room with double doors to an impressive orangery. Pig Oak Cottage benefits from double garaging, excellent parking for 6 vehicles, a large, westerly facing rear garden, and a paddock to the side and rear.
Holt is one of the most popular rural settlements north of Wimborne, and has a popular pub/restaurant (The Old Inn,) a village hall and a village green. The nearby village of Furzehill has a post office/shop and The Stocks Inn, and there are First Schools in Gaunts Common and Witchampton. The wider area is well served by state and independent schools, and the market town of Wimborne Minster offers a comprehensive range of retail, education and leisure facilities. The coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have rail links to London Waterloo, are within about 20 minutes' drive.
A wide, tiled entrance porch (with down timbers and oak front door) leads to a spacious reception hall with fitted bench seating, shelving, coat hanging space, 2 full height storage cupboards and a walk-in under stairs cupboard.
Glazed double doors lead to the spacious sitting room which features a limestone open fireplace, exposed ceiling timbers, and double doors to the outside entertaining area. To the front of the house, there is a study/snug with timber panelled walls.
The showpiece of the ground floor is an impressive, dual aspect L-shaped kitchen/dining room which boasts an excellent range of Neptune ‘Shaker Suffolk’ units, a comprehensive run of white quartz work surfaces, Siemens dishwasher, and a large island unit incorporating cupboards, a 2-person breakfast bar, a Neff microwave unit and a warming drawer.
