The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports are easily accessible.

Further to this is a spectacular full height window and double doors overlooking the rear garden, maple wood flooring with underfloor heating, and features a fireplace with wood burning stove with exposed brick hearth. This room is also wired in each four corners for Hi-Fi speakers. There are three half round windows to the sides and a window to the front making this a delightfully bright room with an abundance of natural light.

From the dining room a door leads through to the modern kitchen with underfloor heating, and fully fitted high and low level units. The property also benefits from a range of kitchen appliances including oven, second oven, microwave, dishwasher, electric hob and extractor fan. A door leads to the rear entrance lobby which provides access to the rear garden and drive, a cloakroom and a separate utility room with sink, storage units and space and pluming for kitchen appliances.

To the first floor there are two bedrooms, one of which is the good sized master which has fitted wardrobes and views over the front and rear garden. Bedroom two has a window to the front. The family bathroom was refurbished to a high standard in November 2023 and is made up of a WC, enclosed bath, separate shower cubicle and vanity wash hand basin with storage below.
