This property is one of those properties that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The property is a beautiful Grade II character home with some outstanding features. The location is charming being surrounded by similar cottages in the lane and yet within a short walk to the Town Centre and beautiful riverside walks along the Avon Valley Path from The Bickerley. The property is so picturesque, it is impossible to capture with photographs and words alone.

The attractive thatched front porch gives immediate access into the reception hallway, which is currently utilised as a study area with a feature inglenook fireplace providing the perfect space to sit and study. Steps lead down to a spacious dining/ breakfast room with a wonderful fireplace yet again and access via in inner hallway to the ground floor bedroom with en-suite. This room is full of character with a vaulted beamed ceiling and lovely double doors leading onto the patio. Once used for B&B this room is perfect as it sits adjacent to the dining/breakfast room and also has direct access from the outside. From the breakfast/dining room a door leads into the kitchen which is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units as well as a larder. Continuing from the reception hall rear hallway gives access to the outside with a convenient boot room/ utility with WC. The spacious sitting room is surrounded by windows allowing maximum light, and again has a feature inglenook fireplace, as well as an attractive working fireplace to the opposite end. Attractive beams fill this room giving a cosy feel and a door gives direct access into the garden.

The property intrigues from start to finish with three staircases to the first floor, the first of which leads to bedroom two, incorporating fitted cupboards and has a door giving access to the family bathroom. The family bathroom was once two rooms so is spacious enough to take the large corner shower cubicle. A second door (Jack / Jill) leads to the second staircase where access to bedroom three can be gained, having a walk in wardrobe / storage room adjacent. Finally the third staircase gives access to the stunning master suite with adjacent bathroom. This room is spectacular, incorporating a secret hatch, perfect for getting those bulky items of furniture onto the first floor. The bathroom is also spacious with a suite very much in keeping with the cottages era.

Outside, as you may expect, the gardens are exquisite and very much in a cottage style with a hexagonal summer house, single garage, storage facilities and green house. The paved patio areas to the rear of the cottage are lovely areas to sit and enjoy the garden with its many flower beds and borders. Gated access at the bottom of the garden leads to an extensive parking area which also leads to the single garage. There is also a parking space to the front of the cottage.

Situation: The property is situated conveniently close to the Town Centre which itself offers a comprehensive range of facilities, including independent and high street shops, cafes, restaurants, two leisure centres and also gives nearby access to the beautiful New Forest National Park, ideal for those with a keen interest in outdoor pursuits. Ringwood has a range of highly regarded schools including the Ringwood Academy, infant schools in Ringwood and Poulner and also a number of pre-schools, one recently being rated outstanding by Ofsted in 2016. The commuter is well catered for with easy access to the A31 and A338. Mainline railway stations are available at Bournemouth, Southampton and Brockenhurst and the M27 / M3 make it easy to connect with other parts of the country.

Agents Note: The property has been re-thatched in recent months with exception to the rear valley which was completed approximately two years previous with Water Reed – hence the colour changes to the thatch at the rear.

AGENTS NOTES: The heating system, mains and appliances have not been tested by Hearnes Estate Agents. Any areas, measurements or distances are approximate. The text, photographs and plans are for guidance only and are not necessarily comprehensive and do not form part of the contract.
