SUMMARY A magnificent New England style detached house having undergone comprehensive renovation and extension and now providing superbly finished spacious family accommodation with the potential to adapt an annexe style accommodation. The property offers six bedrooms with four luxuriously appointed bathrooms and en-suites. The design of the property capitilises on its breath taking views over neighbouring farmland and externally there is a detached double garage and wonderfully landscaped gardens which offer a high degree of privacy. The property has the benefit of high quality multi-function double glazed sash windows, bi-folding doors to kitchen, large balcony, gas fired central heating, Karndean and Porcelain tiled floors.
SITUATION The property is situated along a private lane in St Leonards which lies on the outskirts of Ringwood and offers easy access into the nearby town of Ferndown. St Leonards is a small village adjacent to St Ives and Ashley Heath and is close to the Avon Heath Country Park where there are hectares of heathland accessible for walking, cycling and riding. The area offers easy access to commuter routes via the A31/M27 to London and the A338 to Bournemouth and Poole. Moors Valley Country Park is approximately 2 miles away offering fabulous country walks and an 18 hole golf course. Transport links include the coach service to London from Ringwood and the nearest train station is Bournemouth. Regular bus routes are close at hand to all major towns. The New Forest National Park is within a short drive as is the Jurassic Coastline with its fabulous and award winning sandy beaches.
ACCOMMODATION The property has an appealing veranda frontage with an imposing casement door giving access into a spacious entrance hall. The entrance hall offers a beautiful porcelain tiled floor which contrasts perfectly with the natural timber and glass staircase. A set of double glazed doors open out onto the rear garden while multi-pane glass doors open into a large kitchen/dining room. The kitchen/dining room is the ground floor centre piece of the house with an impressive open space extending the porcelain tile through from the entrance hall and with a magnificent range of fitted units in oak effect under black granite work tops. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted consisting of a Bosch oven, grill and four ring induction hob with overhead extractor, Neff dishwasher and a Miele Teppanyaki hot plate. Complementing the kitchen units is a centre island unit with a built in wine fridge. From the dining area of the kitchen there is a full range of bi folding doors opening onto the rear sun terrace and garden. Off the kitchen/dining room an inner hallway gives access to two ground floor bedrooms, the utility and a ground floor bathroom suite. Within the utility there is a door to the rear garden offering the potential to access this side of the house independently creating an enclosed annexe. At the adjacent side of the entrance hall, off another small inner hallway there is a further ground floor double bedroom and study served by a shower room.
From the entrance hall the staircase takes you up to the first floor to the showpiece of the house opening into a spectacular sitting room with another full range of bi-folding doors opening onto a large balcony and fitted with a bar to one corner. The landing leads to the master bedroom suite and two double bedrooms on the first floor and a main bath/shower room. The master bedroom suite has its own bath/shower room en-suite and is fitted with a comprehensive range of wardrobes and is dual aspect with double doors onto a Juliette balcony to the rear with captivating views.
EXTERNALLY The front of the property is approached via a shingle driveway and offers plenty of parking and turning space before leading to the detached double garage.
The rear garden is neatly landscaped and backing onto farmland has the benefit of not being at all overlooked and very private. There is a patio/sun terrace running the length of the property and adjoining the bi-folding doors from the kitchen/dining room and doors from the entrance hall and there is a shingle centre piece with slab stone borders.
