Bedrooms: 4
Impressive country home in a New Forest setting with approximately 12 acres of gardens, woodlands and paddocks. This four bedroom home benefits from substantial outbuildings which include an annexe, games room, gym and a large stable block with adjoining barn. This individual home has much character, yet offers modern living and features flagstone floors, oak floors as well as an open plan kitchen/dining room with adjoining conservatory.

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 eateries. 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. For the commuter, the cities of Salisbury and Southampton are easily reached via the A338 and the A31 and London is only 2 hours distant, via the M3. The larger shopping towns of Bournemouth (10 miles south) and Southampton (20 miles east), both with their airports are easily accessible.
