A lapsed planning permission offers potential for further conversion of the second floor.

 

SITUATION The property backs onto Shobley and Linford forest with access to hectares of forest and heathland, part of the New Forest National Park. Its position to the forest and access is quite unique and having ownership within the title of some forest to the rear via direct access from the rear garden is rarely found.

Ringwood 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. 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 for access to the A31 offering a direct route 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 has an impressive facade through a traditional porch entrance with solid wood double doors into a spacious entrance hall which is instantly welcoming with oak wood floors and a traditional staircase with carpet runner to the first floor. The living room is a sizeable room with an impressive large open fireplace and benefits from plenty of natural light from triple aspect windows and doors. The double doors from the living room open out onto the covered terrace which overlooks the side garden. Throughout the property, windows are double glazed with made to measure slatted blinds. One of the original reception rooms is currently utilised as a ground floor bedroom and the remainder of the ground floor accommodation accessed through a delightful study that offers French style double glazed doors to the rear garden and patio. Between the kitchen/breakfast room and the study is a well fitted utility room with access to the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is an extremely generous space dedicated for purpose with a terracotta tiled floor that extends through to the utility. The kitchen is generously fitted with a range of limed oak base level cupboards and drawers and a large dresser unit. There are ample wall mounted units which include glass display cabinets and a fitted gas AGA. Access is given to the side terrace from the table area and an open arch through to the snug. On the first floor there are three generous size bedrooms, the master bedroom benefitting from a large dressing room with walk in wardrobe and a large bathroom en-suite. The master bedroom has a large balcony offering fabulous views over the gardens and towards the forest. Bedroom two also has a generous bathroom en-suite, whilst bedroom three offers a divided dressing/store room. The main bathroom is dedicated to a built in shower and is fully tiled.

There is an attractive covered terrace adjoining the property to the side and rear as well as a good size side garden, enclosed rear garden and side terrace.
