A beautifully refurbished Grade II listed converted gate lodge set in over an acre of private grounds and situated in an attractive semi-rural location. This charming home, which we believe dates back to the 1870's, has undergone extensive and sympathetic renovations in recent years to include; a stylish refitted kitchen and bathroom suites, re-wiring, replacement hardwood windows and internal doors, a new boiler and Klargester bio-disc sewerage treatment system.

The property is situated in a quiet road in the sought after hamlet of Ripley, offering a good primary school in the neighbouring village of Sopley, and Bransgore village is only 2 miles distant,offering local shopping facilities. Situated on the edge of the Avon Valley and open forest between the popular coastal town of Christchurch and the historic market town of Ringwood. Christchurch is approximately 6 miles south offering an extensive range of independent and high street shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and the beautiful natural harbour which is home to two sailing clubs, a rowing club and plenty of water based activities. The larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Poole with their stunning beaches are also close by as are major transport links; the A31 and the M27; leading east to Southampton, the M3 and London beyond. Christchurch has a main line train station as does Bournemouth and Southampton.

The entrance hall features wood flooring and gives access to the principal reception room and kitchen. The impressive open-plan living /dining room has a vaulted ceiling and a delightful triple aspect, with three sets of French doors opening onto the gardens. The dining area features an attractive cast iron fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of custom built wooden units with an integrated dishwasher and granite worksurfaces over; incorporating a sink unit and extending to create an adjoining breakfast bar. There is a recess with space for a range style cooker, and further appliance space and plumbing within the good-sized utility room, which is adjacent. A door from the lounge leads to the inner hall (which can also be accessed via the original front door), which gives access to the WC and master bedroom; a particularly spacious room with access to the rear garden and a modern en-suite comprising a large shower cubicle, WC and vanity sink, finished with Porcelanosa tiles. The first-floor landing features an attractive brick arch and gives access to two further double bedrooms, one of which has a lovely vaulted ceiling, and a family bathroom/wetroom, fitted with a quality suite including a freestanding bath, rainwater shower with separate handheld shower, WC and vanity sink unit.

The property is accessed through double wooden gates to a large paved turning circle and parking area, and an adjacent 38 ft., triple timber framed car-port. The extensive gardens are laid to lawn with a large paved patio adjacent to the rear of the property creating a lovely outside seating area, and mature trees and mature hedging to the boundaries - providing much sought-after seclusion. Further double gates from the road give access to an additional parking area to one side of the cottage. The grounds in all amount to approximately 1.1 acres.
