Welcome to 5 The Meerings, a unique opportunity to own a wonderful Arts & Crafts-style property, within a prestigious development built in 2006 in a private cul-de-sac quietly set back off Arne Road, Ridge, near Wareham.

From the oak-framed storm porch, you enter via the front doorway into the wide HALLWAY, which opens out into the attractive oak-floored DINING ROOM where the large bay window floods this charming space with light. Doors open from the hallway to the STUDY, a ground floor W.C., an understairs cupboard.

The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is light well considered. There is a six hob Rangemaster™, built-in fridge freezer and dishwasher. An array of wall and base cupboards and drawers with ample work surfaces. The extremely useful UTILITY ROOM has space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and a stable door opens out to the garden.

The SITTING ROOM is a really good size with windows out to the garden, including a large bay window, a wood burner for chilly evenings and double timber and glass double doors onto the rather stunning GARDEN ROOM. This is an excellent space with lantern ceiling, two sets of double doors opening onto the splendid garden, and attractive timber features. A large enough room for sitting and relaxing and having a meal with friends. A real bonus of a room with stunning character.

The first-floor bedroom accommodation is equally as impressive as the ground floor living accommodation. The vaulted PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is large with windows bringing in masses of light, there is an impressive walk-in wardrobe and a luxury ensuite bathroom with a slipper bath, what a great way to soak away the stresses of the day! BEDROOM 2 is another large double room which overlooks the garden from the bay window, this too has an ensuite shower room. BEDROOM 3, again, a good sized double room overlooks the garden and has a built-in wardrobe that also has additional eaves storage - the perfect place to store suitcases and Christmas decorations. BEDROOM 4 is a small double room which overlooks the close, this could make an additional office or work room.

The FAMILY BATHROOM has a generous bathtub and a separate shower cubicle. The landing is a good width and curves with the house. There is a useful airing cupboard and loft access.

The approach to No.5 The Meerings is via a pretty, private road off Arne Road, which, in turn leads to the renowned RSPB Arne Nature Reserve (often used by Spring Watch and Autumn Watch).

The front of this lovely house has an area of lawn with shrubs and plants and a large area of shingle with PARKING for 3 cars, and a DOUBLE GARAGE. There is also an attractive timber 5-bar gate leading to a further, enclosed area for ADDITIONAL PARKING - ample space for a boat or camper van. From here you can access the stunning REAR GARDEN. This is an absolute delight, areas of lawn and a PATIO, which run around the house, further seating areas, one under a wonderful Wisteria arbour, a wildlife POND a picket fenced 'potager' for the green fingered who love to grow their own vegetables which sits beside a generous POTTING SHED. The garden seems to wrap around the house and perfectly completes this superb property.

Ridge is a delightful hamlet situated in the Dorset National Landscape offering views and walks over heathland to the Purbeck Hills with nearby views over Poole Harbour and the Wareham Channel.
