The property lies very centrally within the plot with a large terrace area immediately to the rear bordered by extensive lawns and mature beds and borders creating all year round interest and colour.

Avon Castle is an exclusive and highly sought after residential area set in the Avon Valley bordering Ringwood. The main drive is lined with mature shrubs and trees, providing the feeling of seclusion and privacy. The market town of Ringwood is just two miles west, offering an excellent range of independent and high street shops, cafes and restaurants as well as excellent recreational facilities and renowned schools. The beautiful New Forest is only a short drive away and offers thousands of acres of heath and woodland, a haven for a range of outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and horse riding. For the commuter the A338 is easily accessible, providing routes to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approximately 8 to 10 miles south) and Southampton (approximately 17 miles east via the A31/M27). The M27/M3 will take you to London, which is approximately two hours distant. There are international airports at both Bournemouth and Southampton.

From the centre of Ringwood proceed onto the A31 heading west. Take the first exit signposted to Verwood and then the first left onto Hurn Road. Take the sixth left into Avon Avenue and first right into Egmont Drive. Continue around the loop passing the two entrances into Chapel Rise and then fork right onto the unmade track. The property will be found at the far end. Energy Efficiency Rating: C Current: 72 Potential: 88 All mains services are connected to the property

Living in New Forest

It feels a privilege to live in the New Forest. This is a stunning, semi-wild landscape of more than 220 square miles of heathland and woodland where deer, ponies, donkeys and cattle wander freely.

It is scattered with picture postcard perfect villages such as Beaulieu, thriving communities such as Brockenhurst and Woodgreen, vibrant market towns like Ringwood and Lymington, and hidden hamlets. The variety of properties ranges from old hunting lodges and thatched cottages to equestrian estates and contemporary coastal homes with sea views.

In terms of lifestyle, the New Forest provides a natural playground for walkers, runners, cyclists, riders and watersports enthusiasts. It has miles of footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways, and its coastline includes Lymington, the sailing ‘capital’ of the UK with marinas and sailing clubs. There are also opportunities to go kayaking, wreck diving and sea fishing – or simply crabbing from the quayside with the children.

For families, educational facilities in the Forest range from small day nurseries and ‘proper’ village schools to sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted .There is also a selection of acclaimed independent schools – and all make the most of their New Forest grounds and environment to give children a country childhood.
