Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Approached via either of two private driveways, this bespoke built family residence with two bedroom linked cottage provides for almost every requirement with flexible, well proportioned living accommodation in excess of 6,000 sq ft.

The main house features a number of statement rooms, including a 23’ double aspect sitting room, 20’ dining room and 18’ kitchen/breakfast all interlinking with stunning views across the Avon Valley.

Further rooms of note are a 23’ double aspect billiard room, 20’ sun room and a magnificent master suite with en-suite bathroom, separate dressing room and private balcony offering elevated views. Set behind the property is a superb swimming pool complex with 35’ pool, changing room, shower room and sauna.


Avon Castle is a prestigious residential area located close to the western border of the New Forest National Park. Mature hedgerows define the main Avon Castle Drive, which leads to a number of private, secluded lanes offering some of the best properties in the area. Naturally, there are only a limited number of Avon Castle properties with river frontage, with this being arguably the most desirable. Whilst one of the main attractions is the private nature of the setting, the popular
market town of Ringwood (2 miles) is easily accessible and offers a range of independent retailers, boutique shopping, coffee shops, restaurants and public houses alongside the Waitrose and Sainsburys supermarkets.


Extending to over 4 acres, the grounds offer a simply breathtaking and contrasting outlook from the raised accommodation and approach driveways. Lawned garden areas are bound by mature hedgerow and trees with well stocked flower and shrub beds fed by an extensive irrigation system. A principal rear elevation lawn gently sweeps away from the house towards a large terrace, which in turn forms the roof of the pool complex below. Adjacent to the cottage
is a full sized tennis court, with garage facilities set behind and to the side. We understand that fishing rights are enjoyed along the many hundreds of feet of river frontage and full details of these rights can be provided on request from the owners.
