Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

SUMMARY A deceptively spacious detached cottage style property in the heart of the New Forest set in approximately one acre of grounds with direct access onto open forest, consisting of landscaped gardens with a triple garage complex. The cottage offers all the charm akin to a forest style home with open and wood burning fires and an oil AGA with scope for extension. The cottage is believed to have been built around a hundred years ago being part of the original Clonmore Estate and then extended in the Sixties with an interesting history of ownership. The property offers some fabulous features over two storey accommodation and most rooms offer spectacular views over the well landscaped gardens and the open forest. The property benefits from UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating through wall hung radiators. As expected with rural property the cottage enjoys Commoner's Rights which allows livestock to graze on the open forest. The property has Satellite Broadband. 

SITUATION Linwood is a small rural hamlet within the New Forest to the north east of Ringwood, the historic market town in Hampshire. The property is surrounded by natural open forest and woodland inclosures nestling within a private and secure plot along a winding country track. The plot enjoys direct access onto the forest glades and Dockens Water stream which attracts a vast range of habitats and wildlife. Some very popular local Country Inns are within walking distance, namely, The Red Shoot Inn and The High Corner Inn both at a similar distance on foot. Ringwood is a short drive away and offers a host of culinary choice from country style pubs, cafes and restaurants to Indian and Thai style foods and include some popular night time venues being well supported by two large supermarkets and a variety of independent retailers. For the family the area is well supported with fabulous private and state schools from infants through to sixth form. For commuters, it could not be easier as access to the A31 is within easy reach and offers direct routes to London, Southampton, Winchester and further afield. Equally, Bournemouth and Poole, famous for its award winning sandy beaches is within a short drive as is Burley, New Forest and Lymington ideal for the yacht enthusiasts. Bournemouth International Airport is the nearest airport, while by rail Hinton or Christchurch is the closest option. Conveniently, there is a National Coach Service to London from Ringwood.  

ACCOMMODATION The property offers access through an attractive solid wood door to the entrance hall which is divided by dark wood beam supports from the inner hall. There is a downstairs cloakroom/WC off the entrance hall and two side aspect windows which allow for a good amount of natural light. An under stairs storage cupboard is built in within the hallway and there is attractive oak strip flooring which extends through to the reception rooms and downstairs bedroom. The sitting room is situated with dual aspect windows to the rear towards the open forest and to the main lawned garden to the side. A large brick fireplace with an open fire hearth features in this room with a dark wood centre beam and wall lighting. Across the hall at the front of the property is the ground floor bedroom, a bright and inviting room with a walk in wardrobe and aspect towards the beautifully tended gardens and the main lawned area at the side. Off the hallway there is access to the study before turning onto the inner hallway and staircase to the first floor. To the rear of the property and off the inner hallway access is given to the dining room. The dining room takes full advantage of backing onto the garden that adjoins the forest with a fabulous set of French Doors and casement side windows offering lovely views out and is further complemented by a wonderful wood burning stove. The kitchen adjoins a rear lobby area where there is access to the downstairs three piece bathroom suite and into the rear utility. The kitchen is a charming farmhouse style kitchen in medium oak with a built in oil AGA and a terracotta tiled floor which extends through to the rear lobby and utility. There are a good selection of base level cupboards and drawers and built in dishwasher under roll top work surfaces with complementary tiling to the adjoining walls, a further range of wall mounted units with space for an upright fridge freezer, a large walk in pantry cupboard and large upright cupboard. The utility serves its purpose well with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer with access directly onto the large sun terrace.

From the inner hallway the staircase takes you to the first floor landing where there are respective doors to the first floor bedrooms and bathroom. The bedrooms are neatly arranged and lend well to the cottage style feel, both with built in wardrobes to either side of a central window which are adorned with pelmet style curtains giving the feel of a bay. Each room offers advantageous views of the grounds and towards the forest. The shower room on the first floor is extremely spacious and offers an extended width shower, low flush WC, vanity wash hand basin with fitted cupboards and shelving and a heated towel rail. 

EXTERNALLY FRONT GARDEN AND COURTYARD

The cottage is approached via a private drive off a country track and the perimeter at the front and surrounding the curtilage is well fenced and secure. There is a paddock style gate to the front and a pedestrian gate access with steps leading down to the entrance. A large courtyard to the front of the property offers ample parking and turning with easy access to the garaging. There is an outside WC attached to the cottage and a latch style gate offering access to the sun terrace at the side through a pretty garden wall.

TRIPLE GARAGE

An open timber framed construction under a pitched tiled roof with outside flood sensor lighting.

MAIN GARDEN - FACING SOUTH

The main side garden which faces in a southerly aspect offers a vast lawned area before adjoining well stocked flower and shrub boundaries. A gate offers direct access to the open forest.

REAR GARDEN - ADJOINING THE OPEN FOREST

The rear garden continues the lawn from the main garden to the rear where the French Doors from the dining room open out and then another fence contains a pergola covered gate access to The Orchard before arriving at the large sun terrace to the side of the property and adjoining the utility. A raised shingled area accommodates a vine pergola and greenhouse and the boundary to the neighbouring land is screened by conifer hedging.
