The property is situated within a minutes walk of Hightown Lakes and beautiful open forest – offering thousands of acres of heath and woodland ideal for walking, cycling and riding. Located on the edge of the scenic Avon Valley, the market town of Ringwood is approximately a miles distant, offering a comprehensive range of independent and high street shops, a good variety of restaurants and cafes, in addition two supermarkets, two leisure centres and excellent state and private schools. For commuters, the A31 is easily accessible, providing links to; the M27, leading to Southampton, Winchester and London beyond; and to the A338, leading to the larger coastal towns and beaches of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole. There are airports and train stations at both Bournemouth and Southampton, and regular National Express coaches depart from Ringwood to London Victoria, as well as local buses services to neighbouring towns.
From the central Ringwood roundabout, join the A31 heading East towards Southampton. After approximately 1 mile take the exit signposted to Poulner, Hightown & Crow. At the roundabout take the first exit and at the T junction turn right into Southampton Road. Proceed over the flyover and at the roundabout take the first exit. After a short distance turn right into Nouale Lane, and follow to the end. At the T junction turn right onto Hightown Hill, and then immediately left into Forest Lake Avenue. Take the next right and turn into Ashley Close and the property can be found set back from the road on your left.
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.
