Agents Note
Mount Ararat has a vehicular Right of Way from the Forest Gate towards the end of St Stephens Lane in Verwood to the Cottage. We understand there is a joint maintenance agreement with the Forestry Commission however our Clients have never been asked to contribute since they bought the Cottage in 1983.

An idyllic setting, secluded with no neighbours yet within a short drive of the East Dorset town of Verwood where there are a good variety of everyday facilities.The Avon Valley Market Town of Ringwood is about 6 miles to the Southeast and provides a more comprehensive range of shopping while the Minster Town of Wimborne is about 8 miles to the Southwest. The major South Coast town of Bournemouth is about 14 miles and boasts a number of award winning beaches and also within an easy drive are various boating centres notably at Poole and Christchurch Harbours.

Road communications are good being about 5 miles of the A31 which is a major arterial route for the West Country and to the East leads directly onto the M27 which links with the M3 for Southampton, Winchester and London. There are Mainline Railway Stations at Bournemouth and Southampton and both have International Airports for most European destinations.

This delightful and charming cottage offers quite versatile accommodation. The front door takes you directly into the Dining Room with Woodburning Stove inset into brick fireplace and opening into the bespoke Kitchen with fitted appliances including gas hob. The Living Room with splendid Inglenook Fireplace housing a Jetmaster open fire and original bread oven. There are 4 Bedrooms and a Bathroom.

A five bar gate gives access for ample parking with an adjacent Woodstore and a further Storage Shed that also houses the Diesel Generator that provides electricity for the property. The Gardens lying mainly to the South of the cottage amount to just over an acre and comprise Lawn and a variety of mature evergreen and deciduous trees and a number of fruit trees. The all weather Tennis Court is fully fenced.

From the A31 just to the West of Ringwood take the sliproad signed for Verwood and continue into the Town. On passing the Shell petrol station on your right take the next right into St Stephens Lane and continue almost to the end and a Forest gate will be seen on your right. We will meet you at this point and lead you to the cottage.
