Avon Castle is an exclusive residential area set in the beautiful Avon Valley which borders the charming market town of Ringwood. Still home to the stunning castle, today Avon Castle is known as an up market private residential area where many of the mid-20th century properties have been replaced with substantial architect designed homes. The exquisite location is accessed along an established Rhododendron lined drive, offering the feeling of seclusion and privacy, yet is conveniently situated just two miles west of Ringwood with excellent road links.
This old market town is positioned on the edge of the New Forest, yet is just a short drive from the coast. It is an increasingly popular destination for home hunters having undergone a re-identification; the old cattle market has been transformed into a stylish shopping quarter with names such as Aga, Hobbs, Joules, Waitrose and Waterstones, and a programme of events that includes live music and farmers’ markets. The adjacent high street has retained its character, with a traditional weekly market and a selection of independents, a new artisan bakery, and a variety of decent eateries such as Framptons and Noisy Lobster.
Families are attracted by the sense of community, superb infant and junior schools, and highly regarded secondary school (its sixth form provision rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted). There is a wide range of property from thatched cottages, through Victorian and Edwardian villas to tree-lined closes of homes. For the commuter, the cities of Salisbury and Southampton are easily reached via the A338 and the A31 and London is only 2 hours distant, via the M3. The larger shopping towns of Bournemouth (10 miles south) and Southampton (20 miles east), both with their airports are easily accessible.
Double doors open into the spacious entrance hall, finished with beautiful Italian Marble tiled flooring and with Oak internal doors giving access to the living accommodation. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of Oak units with granite work surfaces and includes Range cooker, double Butlers sink, integrated dishwasher, integrated fridge and under-unit freezer. A large window overlooks the delightful gardens and river beyond, with double doors opening onto the patio and a further stable door to the side aspect. The separate utility room comprises further units and a sink, with space and plumbing for additional appliances. There are two other reception rooms positioned at the rear of the house to take advantage of the stunning southerly aspect views, both with quality oak flooring; an impressive sitting/dining room featuring an open fire and an adjacent family room. Accessed from the sitting room is a separate sun lounge with a delightful triple aspect. All the south facing rooms have doors leading to the garden. Also to the ground floor is a study/playroom, also with Oak flooring, which could be used as a ground floor bedroom, with adjacent shower room. From the first floor landing are five good-sized double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath/shower room. The Master bedroom has the benefit of fitted Oak wardrobes and access to a private balcony overlooking the glorious gardens and river, whilst bedrooms three and four have access to a shared balcony, also with a rear aspect.Council Tax Band: H.
