£595,000 via Hearnes Estate Agents, Ringwood: 01425 209264

A beautifully presented three bedroom thatched cottage believed to date back approx. 350 years and set within attractively landscaped gardens with views over paddocks to the rear. The property is located within a beautiful tranquil setting in Does Lane, which lies within the fantastic Dewlands Nature Reserve with its outstanding countryside and woodland walks, located in a no through lane which accommodated just a handful of private homes, Ivy Cottage has remained in family ownership for decades and is now uniquely offered for sale to its next custodian.

The accommodation has been sympathetically refurbished and extended throughout retaining many characterful features. More recently in the last two years or so the thatched roof has been replaced and there has been a substantial single storey conversion of an existing outbuilding which has created a wonderful modern kitchen and two bath/ shower rooms, both offering luxury and charm, in keeping with the cottage’s era.

Stepping into the cottage you are immediately greeted by the wonderful sitting room with beamed ceilings and a feature open fireplace. To the side is access to the third bedroom, which has windows to the front and rear and could also be ideal as an additional reception room if desired (this room is currently inaccessible due to a new floor being laid – please enquire for further information)

Moving through from the living room you enter the kitchen extension with a great array of units, wood worktops and access to outside. There is space and plumbing for appliances as well as tiled flooring and splashback areas. There are two bath/ shower rooms on the ground floor, the bathroom offering a high specification traditional suite with roll top freestanding bath, tiled walls, and decorative tiled flooring. The shower room, is equally a high specification and is fitted with a more contemporary suite with Japanese inspired toilet, double walk in shower and tiled wall areas.

The first floor has a landing with access to the two generous double bedrooms, once three bedrooms on the first floor this has been cleverly re arranged to provide two very generous rooms, both with wonderful views over the countryside.

The property is approached via double pillared gates opening onto a driveway which provides off road parking and a substantial storage facility. Further parking could easily be incorporated, and the majority of the garden lies to the front with lawn and shrub borders. A pathway extends around to the side of the cottage with access to the rear and its views across paddock land.

Viewing this cottage is a must to appreciate its fantastic rural setting. Properties in this location, so accessible to the village, are rarely available and it is anticipated that a lot of interest with be shown.
