A good size drive provides generous off-road parking and leads to the detached double garage with an electric up-and-over door, personal door, power and light. Stairs rise to the loft room above, also with power and light. From the drive, a five-bar gate gives access to a paved area with shed. The gardens lie mainly to the front and side of the property and are mainly lawned, bordered by shrub/flower beds, with hedging to the front boundary providing a good degree of privacy. A path and pedestrian gate lead to the road. Adjacent to the living/dining room is a raised decking area, which can also be accessed via a sloping walkway from the gardens.
The property is situated within easy reach of the centre of Verwood which offers a range of local shops, supermarket, doctors and dentist surgery. Ringwood Forest is a short distance away offering beautiful scenic walks, incorporating the stunning Moors Valley Country Park and golf course. The larger market town of Ringwood is approximately 4 miles away with a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. The A338 is easily accessible, providing a convenient link to the coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approximately 10 miles south via the A338), Southampton (approximately 20 miles east via the A31/M27), and Salisbury (approximately 20 miles north).
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.
