An oak front door opens into the entrance hall, which gives access to the living and bedroom accommodation, and is finished with attractive flagstone flooring. This continues through to the beautiful country style kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with painted wooden units with granite work surfaces over and an inset Cooke and Lewis Integra sink. There is an integrated fridge, integrated freezer with space for a Range style cooker. The living room has a triple aspect with bi-fold doors opening onto the gardens and features Oak flooring and a wood-burning stove on a slate heath. The oak framed sun room, also with flagstone flooring, offers a further sitting area and gives further access to the gardens. A cupboard provides space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There are two double bedrooms accessed from the inner hall, both with oak flooring and far reaching views over the adjacent forest; the master bedroom has a double fitted wardrobe and benefits from a modern en-suite bathroom, which includes a large shower cubicle wash basin and WC, with most attractively tiled walls; the second bedroom has doors opening onto the gardens and a large built in cupboard, and is served by the quality fitted family bathroom comprising a free standing bath with shower attachment, pedestal wash basin and WC, finished with partly wood-panelled walls.
The property is approached along a private shared drove (at the end of the drove there is convenient pedestrian access onto the High Street, Woodgreen). The enclosed private gardens are in the process of being landscaped; they mainly lie to the front of the property with a raised bed edged with sleepers along one side, including steps to a small paved seating area, with mature hedging to the boundary. To the rear of the property are three further raised beds, with fencing to the rear boundary and far side boundary, offering lovely rural views.
Living in Fordingbridge
Fordingbridge, with its distinctive seven arch bridge spanning the River Avon, rewards discovery. This former market town enjoys an idyllic location between the heath and woodland of the New Forest and rolling chalk downlands of Cranborne Chase. The Avon Valley long-distance footpath from Salisbury to Christchurch runs through the town, meandering beside the Avon. Round and about are some of the loveliest villages, including Rockbourne with the remains of a Roman villa and good, popular pub, the Rose & Thistle, and delightful Breamore with its picturesque Marsh (surviving manorial green) and Elizabethan manor house.
Fordingbridge itself has a high street of interesting independents including an art gallery, architectural salvage yard (a great resource with treasures such as Victorian fireplaces), bookshop and boutiques, and essentials such as butchers and bakers. There’s also a great selection of pubs and restaurants in the area, such as The George in Fordingbridge, The Three Lions at Stuckton and The Foresters at Frogham.
Property in Fordingbridge and surrounding area represents good value for the New Forest and includes character cottages and modern family homes. Families are also attracted by the well-regarded independent schools of Forres Sandle Manor and Moyles Court.
Fordingbridge is positioned just off the main Salisbury to Christchurch Road, so there’s reasonable access to the road networks - including A31 at Ringwood.
