The entrance hall has a large storage cupboard and leads to a well-proportioned sitting room which centres upon a feature fireplace with electric fire. A part-glazed door gives access to the kitchen, fitted with a range of beech-effect cabinets incorporating a circular sink and drainer, Samsung gas hob with extractor over and electric oven. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer. A door leads to a UPVC double glazed conservatory which has a wall-mounted electric radiator and provides access to the rear garden. From the sitting room a door opens to an inner hallway with two useful storage cupboards (one of which houses the hot water cylinder) which leads to two double bedrooms, both of which benefit from built-in wardrobes, with bedroom 2 enjoying access to the garden via double glazed French doors. The bathroom has a coloured suite comprising a cast iron bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, WC, period style taps and an access hatch to the loft space.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
Outside, the front garden has been laid to lawn with a low-level brick wall, well-stocked shrub borders and a path leading to the entrance porch. Adjacent to the bungalow is a shared driveway to a single garage with power and light, which is currently divided into workshop and storage areas and has a private parking space to the front. Behind the garage a pedestrian gate provides access to the rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and a paved terrace, all of which is enclosed by fencing.

All mains services
The property is conveniently located within walking distance of the town centre and all three Ringwood Schools, yet is just a short distance away from the beautiful New Forest offering thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland ideal for walking, cycling and riding. The town centre offers an excellent range of shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants and two well-known supermarkets and two leisure centres. The easily accessible A338 provides links to the larger towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approx. 8 miles), the city of Salisbury (approx. 18 miles), and Southampton (approx. 18 miles via the A31/M27). There are railway stations and airports at both Bournemouth and Southampton.
Living in Ringwood
Ringwood offers the best of all worlds. This old market town is positioned on the edge of the New Forest, yet is just ten minutes drive to the coast and also has easy access to the A31, with London, Southampton and Winchester in one direction and Bournemouth in the other.
It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters. Best known as the home of Ringwood Brewery (inspiration for the current boom in microbreweries), it is undergoing a re-identification. The old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Aga, Hobbs, Joules, Waitrose and Waterstones, and a programme of events that includes live music and farmers’ markets. The adjacent high street has retained its character, with a traditional weekly market and a selection of independents, a new artisan bakery, and a variety of decent eateries such as Framptons and Noisy Lobster.
Families are attracted by the sense of community and highly regarded secondary school (its sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted). There is a wide range of property from thatched cottages, through Victorian and Edwardian villas to tree-lined closes of homes built between the wars and every decade from mid-century onwards.
To the north are the quieter, untouched reaches of the Forest and larger country houses. To the west Ringwood is bounded by the River Avon and Avon Castle, a private estate of big, individual, contemporary properties in large plots, many with views across the water meadows. Avon Castle appeals to those looking for privacy and seclusion, and also attracts people moving from London in search of country life combined with contemporary living.
