The property now comprises a stylish open plan kitchen/dining room which has been beautifully refitted with a range of modern white Shaker style cabinets under attractive granite working surfaces, which incorporate a ceramic sink and a range of integrated Bosch appliances including a ceramic hob with extractor over, combi microwave/oven, separate oven and dishwasher, plus a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.  In addition, there is a cupboard housing a Worcester oil fired boiler.  This is a naturally light and airy room, which also benefits from inset spotlights and under cabinet lighting, whilst attractive grey Porcelanosa floor tiles flow seamlessly throughout and into the spacious dining room, which has bi-folding doors that open to the garden.  There is a useful storage cupboard and an access hatch with ladder leading to a large part-boarded loft space with lighting and a window, which could provide additional potential, subject to any necessary consents.  From here access is provided to one of three double bedrooms and to the sitting room; a lovely dual aspect room which centres upon a cosy cast iron log burning stove and features a bay window with French doors opening onto the front garden.  A hallway leads through to the rear lobby which houses an airing cupboard and provides access to bedroom two plus the master bedroom, both of which enjoy lovely views over the rear garden.  The master bedroom has the benefit of a fully tiled en-suite shower room with corner shower featuring both rain-head and hand-held shower facilities, a wash hand basin in a vanity unit, WC, heated towel rail and anti-mist mirror.  In addition, there is a beautifully refitted family bathroom which has a white suite comprising a bath, separate walk-in shower with both rain-head and hand-held shower facilities, WC, wash hand basin in a vanity unit plus a heated towel rail and heated anti-mist mirror, whilst three alcoves with inset spotlights provide useful storage areas. 

Outside, the property is approached via a quiet lane through a five-bar gate which opens onto a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles. To the front of the property there is a pretty brick edged lawn with a raised railway sleeper border housing a mature hedgerow.  Pathways lead either side of the property to the rear garden and to a large paved terrace located adjacent to the dining room which creates a perfect space for outside dining and entertaining.  The rear garden is fully enclosed by fencing and mature hedging and features apple and chestnut trees, whilst the remainder is predominantly laid to lawn.  There is a large detached timber outbuilding (with power and light) which could easily be used as a single garage subject to the driveway being modified to create vehicular access. 

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.
