The property is conveniently situated within walking distance of the historic market town of Ringwood, excellent local schools and the David Lloyd leisure centre. Ringwood is situated on the edge of the Avon Valley and the New Forest National Park and offers a superb range of independent and high street shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The easily accessible A338 provides a direct route to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approximately 8 miles south), and to the city of Salisbury (approximately 18 miles north), and the A31 links to Southampton (approximately 18 miles east via the M27) and London, approximately 2hrs distant (via the M3 & M25). There are international airports at both Southampton and Bournemouth.
Exit our offices and continue along the high street in a southerly direction, continue until you reach a roundabout and turn right onto Christchurch road and after a short distance you will come to Netherbrook house on your right.
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.
