Its quintessentially New Forest charm with a wealth of history and features together with highly sensitive modernisation, makes this home a real gem.

The property is located on the edge of Ringwood in the much sought after hamlet of Crow which lies on the eastern fringe of Ringwood, and is within the National Park. The cottage is estimated to have been built between 1690-1705 and is a typical beamed cottage, (the exposed wooden beams are reputed to have come from the Armada) and is south-facing giving the cottage a bright and airy atmosphere. It is an adaptable and versatile property having three reception rooms and three/four bedrooms (one being a “walk-through” bedroom that could be ideal as a dressing room or nursery). The cottage benefits from a number of spacious tongue and groove cupboards and the overall painting style is in Farrow and Ball and Little Greene colours enhancing its subtle charm.

The first impression of this home is how much appealing character is on display. A traditional porch leads into a most beautiful reception room, currently a dining room with ample space for a large table and chairs and giving access to the sitting room and an open way into the kitchen. Amtico Oak effect flooring extends through to the kitchen which boasts a stunning range of deVOL style units and Bianco Massa Quartz worktops. Complementing the quartz worktops is a butler sink, matching upstand and aspect overlooking the rear garden. Appliances supplied by John Lewis include an electric oven and grill, four burner electric hob and integrated dishwasher. A well placed pantry provides further kitchen storage and a prep area as well as space to house a fridge/freezer. From the kitchen is access to the boot room/utility, here there is a matching butler sink and continuation of the worktop together with access to the garden via a stable door. The sitting room really encompasses the age of this home with an array of beams to the ceiling, a most wonderful inglenook style fireplace and inset wood burner. From the sitting room is a study / garden room, the perfect relaxing place to sit and enjoy the view with double doors out to the garden and courtyard, perfect for teenagers. From the sitting room an inner hallway provides access to the ground floor shower room/wc and stairs to the first floor. The first floor bedrooms all embrace the charm, with latch style doors, authentic finished walls with exposed beams and a most delightful stained glass window. All bedrooms are serviced by the pretty bathroom fitted with a period style suite with claw foot bath, wash hand basin and WC. The bedrooms have lovely countryside views from all aspects and have the benefit of fitted cupboards.

The front garden is neatly finished with trimmed box hedging and a lavender and rosemary bed. The cottage garden to the rear is modestly sized and includes a patio area and is very well stocked with interest for every season. The present owner has lived here for nearly 30 years and has fulfilled her dream of designing a garden of seasonal impact with exceedingly low maintenance. There are raised beds and a greenhouse plus a brook with a bridge connecting the main part of the garden to a further well stocked area with two garden sheds.
The property itself also benefits from off-road parking for up to four vehicles.

The land is approached by a five bar metal gate with drove-way and separate singular gated access and is enclosed with a recently planted hedge row and post and electric insulated wire fencing which has been fitted in 2017 by its current owners and is powered by a farming solar system. The land is set out perfectly for the equestrian in mind with the two paddocks separated by the move-able field shelter which is on skis and corral enclosure, the grazing land has been well maintained and fertilized, previously used for hay production. The eastern boundary lined with mature and well established trees.

This piece of prime grazing is secluded and private, and the fenced woodland to the east offers both protection and shade, as well as acting as a sanctuary to wildlife, ( a resident Tawny Owl), and a dense carpet of bluebells in the spring. There is also a separate utility area for trailer, horsebox etc.
Although the land is primarily for equestrian use, the land also offers a splendid area for all members of the family to enjoy.
