A charming period home of 18th century origins situated in a quiet secluded spot on the fringes of the New Forest National Park, with an adjacent bridal path leading to the common, yet only five minutes from the A31. This delightful home has been extended from the original period cottage, and the current owners have sympathetically modernised and refurbished the kitchen/living room creating a stunning room with lovely views over the surrounding landscaped gardens of approximately 0.3 of an acre. Energy Performance Rating: D

This desirable home is located in a semi–rural location on the very edge of the beautiful open Forest, offering thousands of acres of heath and woodland ideal for riding, yet is within a short distance of a local convenience store, doctors and dentists. The historic market town of Ringwood is just 1.5 miles distant, boasting a comprehensive range of independent and high street shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as two supermarkets, excellent local schools and two leisure centres – including the David Lloyd Centre. For the commuter there is easy access onto the A31 providing a link to the larger coastal towns of Christchurch and Bournemouth (approximately 10 miles south via the A338), Southampton (approximately 20 miles east via the M27), and Salisbury (approximately 18 miles north via the A338). There are international airports at both Bournemouth and Southampton and the M27 and M3 make it easy to connect to other parts of the country. London is approximately a 2 hour drive, however regular daily National Express coaches depart from Ringwood town centre to London Victoria.
