Pimperne Ash is a delightful detached cottage with fantastic room sizes, boasting a 19’ long dining room and a sitting room of almost 24’. The property has some lovely period features, notably the canopy of exposed beams and rustic stone fireplace in the sitting room. However, the real selling point is the garden which is entirely private. Fully functional but in need of cosmetic updating,
Pimperne Ash is a fantastic family home just looking for some love.

Entering the property, there is an unusually large utility room to the right, with a separate W/C at the rear. Refitted this would make a superb, combined utility/mudroom or perhaps a home office/studio. The entrance hall leads behind the utility to form an indoor log store and there is a door out to the rear. A half glazed door opens to the galley kitchen which overlooks the rear garden and has a charming green AGA.

Off the kitchen is the double-aspect dining room which is almost 6m long and has a chequerboard parquet floor, panelled ceiling and exposed woodwork and stone. French doors open to the large, bright conservatory which maximises the lovely garden view and has its own double doors out to the patio.

Leading from the dining room is a short corridor where the stairs rise to the first floor. Ahead is the delightful sitting room which has a beautiful fully beamed ceiling and stone fireplace with chunky mantle and fitted bookcases in the chimney breast alcoves. The room is dual aspect with a window seat looking out to the front and a door out to the garden.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, all with builtin wardrobes, the family bathroom and a useful storage cupboard on the landing. Bedroom 1 is a particularly generous double room with views to the front and rear.

At the front of the property there is off-road parking for three cars and a detached carport. At the rear is a fantastic lawned garden of ca. 1/4 acre bordered by shrubs and trees, with a vegetable plot at the far end. With fields to both sides and no overlooking properties, the garden is totally private. There is a patio area next to the conservatory with pedestrian access from the front of the house.

Mains water, septic tank drainage, night storage heating and oil fired central AGA.
