Traditionally constructed in 1953, with facing red brick elevations and a ridged roof of small plain tiles, the property has been substantially extended and refurbished to a high standard of specification over the last 6 years, and is now presented in pristine condition, with a high standard of decoration and floor coverings. No expense has been spared in creating a stunning family home.

The house is connected to all mains services (including mains drainage) and has UPVC double glazing and gas central heating. A particular feature is an impressive kitchen/family area with bifold doors to the garden. Outside there is extensive off road parking, a garage and a large detached cabin which could be used as a home office.

Furzehill is a delightful village with a pub, The Stocks Inn, and a popular post office/stores, set close to the market town of Wimborne Minster which offers a wide range of amenities. There is a First School in the nearby village of Gaunts Common, and Dumpton Preparatory School is located on the outskirts of Furzehill. Wimborne offers schools for all ages, and there is easy road access to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

A wide covered entrance way with a quarry tiled floor and a composite front door leads to an entrance hallway with coat hanging area, small understairs cupboard, understairs pantry, door to garage, and engineered oak flooring (which continues for a large proportion of the ground floor.) There is a half tiled cloakroom with WC and wash basin.

The sitting room overlooks the front garden and has a feature brick fireplace with a timber mantel and an inset imitation wood burning stove.

The hub of the house is a magnificent kitchen/dining/family area with sliding bifold doors giving a lovely view of the garden. It has an excellent range of quartz work surfaces, a butler's sink (with boiling water tap), a comprehensive range of units, concealed worktop lighting, island unit incorporating breakfast bar, Neff hide and slide oven and Neff microwave convection oven, touch-control induction hob, extractor, integrated dishwasher and Hisense American style fridge-freezer. The family area overlooks the front garden and has an ornamental fireplace with electric fire.

There is a small study with shelves and space for desk.

On the first floor there is a long L-shaped landing with loft access and double airing cupboard. Bedroom 1 is a superb bedroom overlooking the front garden, with walk-in dressing room and en suite shower room (with shower cubicle, vanity unit with cupboards and drawers, twin wash basins, concealed cistern WC and towel radiator.) Bedroom 2 overlooks the front garden.

Bedroom 3 overlooks the rear garden and has built-in wardrobes, and bedroom 4, to the front, has a fitted wardrobe. The family bath/shower room has a double-ended jacuzzi bath, walk-in double shower, vanity unit with drawers and inset wash basin, concealed cistern WC, and contemporary towel radiator.

A 5-bar gate and wide shingle driveway lead to a large gravelled courtyard providing extensive off road parking.

At the side of the house there is an attached garage with ledged-and-braced double doors, full height mirror-fronted storage cupboards, lighting and power, and walkway to a utility room (with Corian work surfaces, stainless steel sink, cupboards and drawers, space for white goods, and solid oak door to outside.)

The well presented front garden is enclosed by a low mixed hedge and features a lawn and well stocked beds with a wealth of shrubs. The rear garden is a particular feature of the property, extending to over 80ft in length and offering almost complete privacy. It includes a large, well maintained, flat lawn, well stocked borders, paved pathways, a gardener's cloakroom (with concealed cistern WC, wash basin and tiled floor), a large workshop/store, and a terracotta tiled entertaining terrace with space for a hot tub, and a purpose-built bar.
