This character property is conveniently located within walking distance of the town centre including doctors and dentists 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. Ringwood town centre offers an excellent range of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants as well as two well-known supermarkets and two leisure centres. The easily accessible A338 provides links to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approximately 8 miles south), the city of Salisbury (approximately 18 miles north), and Southampton (approximately 18 miles east via the A31/M27). There are railway stations and International airports at both Bournemouth and Southampton.
The property has recently undergone substantial renovations, including a rear extension, new roof, re-wiring, replacement central heating system including a pressurised hot water tank and complete refurbishment internally, including new double glazed windows and doors.
The entrance hall is particularly spacious and gives access to the living accommodation, boiler room, cloaks cupboard and cloakroom with modern suite. An attractive staircase with glass balustrade rises to the first floor accommodation. The main reception room is located to the rear of the property, with double French doors opening onto the patio and gardens. This impressive room incorporates a large living area which is open plan to the kitchen/breakfast room; fitted with a range of stylish modern units with Quartz work-surfaces over (incorporating a breakfast bar) and integrated appliances including a dishwasher, electric double oven and grill, induction hob with extractor above and a fridge/freezer. A separate utility room provides space for additional appliances. Double doors from the living area open into the dining/family room; a versatile room with access also from the hall. The ground floor accommodation also includes a double bedroom which has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. From the first-floor landing there are three further double bedrooms; the master bedroom with a walk-in dressing area which leads though to the en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom suite which comprises a bath with folding glass shower screen, shower over and lit recessed shelving, WC and vanity sink unit.

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.
