This individual home is situated in Kingston which is a small hamlet approximately 1 mile outside of Ringwood; an historic market town offering a superb range of facilities, including two supermarkets, a variety of high street and independent shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, two leisure centres and excellent local schooling. The property is within walking distance of Kingston Common, whilst the New Forest National Park a short distance away, providing thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. The B3347 provides a direct link to the pretty town of Christchurch with its natural harbour and adjacent beaches, and the easily accessible A338 links to the larger towns of Bournemouth and Poole (approximately 10-15 miles south) and the City of Salisbury (approximately 18 miles north). The A31 and M27 provide access to Southampton (approximately 18 miles east), and London beyond (via the M3 & M25), which is approximately a 2 hour drive.
The enclosed entrance porch opens into the characterful dining/sitting room, featuring an impressive inglenook fireplace and beamed ceilings and walls. From here there is access into the spacious breakfast room comprising an inglenook with solid fuel AGA (currently not in use) with adjacent storage cupboard and finished with most attractive flagstone floor. Located adjacent to the current kitchen, the breakfast room could be utilised as the main kitchen if desired. The kitchen has a range of original restored 1960’s units with Formica worktops over, an inset enamel sink unit and space for appliances, with a door leading out to the gardens. Also leading from the breakfast room is a useful study area with quarry tiled floor and an aspect to the side. To the rear of the property is a delightful sitting/day room with a vaulted ceiling and double doors opening onto the patio and gardens, ideal for entertaining during the summer months. From the first floor landing there are three double bedrooms, each comprising superb original wide Georgian floorboards, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom features the exposed brick chimney breast, whilst bedrooms two and three enjoy an aspect to the front, with views acc4ross the adjacent farmland. The family bathroom consists of a white three piece suite including a WC, bath with shower attachment and wash basin.

The Thatch: We have been advised by the current owners that the property was re-thatched 1989 by master thatcher Tom Whitely, using Water Reed - we understand this has a lifespan of approx. 40-50 years. The Ridge was redone by Malcolm Jones in 2007, and is estimated to last approx. 15 years.
There is access at one side of the property along a track, to an area of off road parking at the rear of the cottage. The pretty gardens are a particular feature of the property, having been attractively landscaped and being well established. Featuring a patio adjacent to the rear of the lounge; which continues along to the side of the cottage to a courtyard area, and a large shingled area with path to a good-sized wooden workshop. The garden offers a good deal of privacy and has a variety of plants, mature shrubs and specimen trees, plus two storage sheds and is enclosed by panelled fencing.
