A beautifully presented four bedroom detached bungalow, originally built in circa 1992, and subsequently refurbished by the present owners to a demanding specification, including a substantial air conditioned ‘orangery style’ family room extension that opens out onto a large ‘wrap around’ South West facing sand stone paved patio, an ideal space for entertaining and al fresco dining. The property benefits from oil fired central heating, although the family bathroom, en-suite shower room and family room all have electric under floor heating and the property is double glazed throughout. The bungalow stands in a secluded garden plot of approximately 0.28 acres, with a detached double garage and there is also plentiful additional parking.
The Bungalow is located at Bleak Hill on the outskirts of Harbridge, an ancient rural community – mentioned in Domesday book of 1086, within the civil parish of Ellingham, Harbridge and Ibsley, about two and half miles North of the historic market town of Ringwood, and a similar distance South of Fordingbridge. The village nestles on the edge of low meadow land West of the River Avon, with the impressive 15th century parish church of All Saints at its heart. The property is well placed for access to the A338 for Salisbury, Ringwood and the A31 for Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and beyond, or for Verwood via the B3081. Nearby recreational attractions include the New Forest National Park and Cranborne Chase – an area of outstanding natural beauty, both are easily accessible by car or bike, and there are also numerous footpaths and bridleways within the vicinity.
