Tenure: FreeholdSOLD BY HEARNES ESTATE AGENTS RINGWOOD. A simply stunning Grade II Listed Georgian property situated on the edge of Ringwood town centre, within walking distance of excellent local schools, shops and local eateries. This five-bedroom detached family home offers generous living accommodation, as well as a pretty walled garden, extensive outbuildings and ample off-road parking. There are many original period features, fused beautifully with modern bathroom suites, some under floor heating and a superb conservatory with bi-fold doors.
The property is situated in a quiet road, close to all three Ringwood schools; Ringwood Infants, Juniors and the Academy/Sixth Form. Ringwood town centre is within walking distance, offering a superb range of independent and high street shops, cafes and eateries as well as two leisure centres and a choice of supermarkets. The nearby Castleman Trailway (which was the old railway line), offers a scenic walk and cycle route to Ringwood Forest (approx. 1.5 miles), incorporating Moors Valley Country Park. The stunning New Forest is a short distance, offering thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland - ideal for cycling, riding and walking. There are mainline train stations and international airports at Bournemouth and Southampton and the golden sands of Bournemouth beaches are also within easy reach.
Upon entering this beautiful home you are greeted by a wonderful entrance hallway with original floor tiles and access to the two main reception rooms both of which overlook the front garden. The sitting room has a feature fireplace with a fitted cupboard to the side (encasing a lovely arched alcove). The original grand dining room, currently used as a second sitting room also has a feature fireplace with inset wood burning stove and recessed shelving to either side. An inner hallway has wood block flooring and provides access to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation including a study overlooking the rear gardens, double stained glass doors opening into the conservatory and access to the farmhouse kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a great arrangement of units to both floor and wall, granite worktops incorporating a ceramic sink unit, space for a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and range style cooker and ample space for a large table and chairs. The adjoining lobby is accessed from the kitchen and has an external door to the rear and a doorway opening into a large utility/boot room which provides further storage units, space for laundry appliances, flagstone flooring with under floor heating, access to a ground floor wet room and a stable door to outside. A delightful conservatory which has been added by the present owners, has period style tiled flooring with under floor heating, built in seating, fitted blinds adding to the charm and bi fold doors allowing the outside in on warmer days.
A classic staircase with curved balustrade leads to the first floor landing with a window overlooking the garden and a further concealed staircase gives access to the loft storage space. There are five bedrooms, three being very generous double rooms, each with their own feature cast iron fireplace and cupboards for storage. The two remaining bedrooms are large single rooms with aspects over the gardens. The bedrooms are serviced by two bath/ shower rooms, both equally modern yet in keeping with the era of the house, including attractively tiled/ panelled walls and tiled flooring.
The outside space is superb with the generous sunny garden being well enclosed and partially walled, adding once again to the charm and character. An area of lawn is enclosed by pretty perennial borders creating a cottage feel and gravelled pathways extend to the outbuildings and a large gravelled patio area. The outbuildings are ideal for those who need to work from home or store vehicles/belongings. The first two barns have original fireplaces and are adaptable for the needs of the owner but currently provide great storage space. The large barn with vaulted and beamed ceilings showing off some of the original timbers has been comprehensively renovated to provide a triple garage with triple double opening oak doors providing access to the driveway and currently provides extensive storage space. The driveway provides ample off road parking for numerous vehicles. The front of the property sits impressively amongst a pretty garden, enclosed by ornate fencing and a driveway to the side.
Viewing on this rarely available period home, so close to the Town Centre is a must to fully appreciate all that is on offer.
