Avon Castle is an exclusive residential area set in the beautiful Avon Valley which borders the charming market town of Ringwood. Still home to the stunning castle, today Avon Castle is known as an up market private residential area where many of the mid-20th century properties have been replaced with substantial architect designed homes. The exquisite location is accessed along an established rhododendron-lined drive, offering the feeling of seclusion and privacy, yet is conveniently situated just one and a half miles west of Ringwood with excellent road links. For the commuter, the easily accessible A338 and A31 provide convenient routes to the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approx. 8 miles south), Salisbury (approx. 18 miles north) and via the M27 to Southampton (approx. 17 miles east). London is approximately a two hours drive via the M27 and M3.

A tiled covered entrance approach leads to the spacious entrance L-shaped hall with cloakroom, cloaks cupboard and a double fronted airing cupboard. The generous triple aspect lounge has a flame effect electric fire and also benefits from double glazed patio doors leading into the front garden. The separate dining room, being adjacent to the kitchen, also benefits from sliding patio doors leading into the rear garden. At the rear of the property is the impressive fully fitted kitchen which has a large range of base, wall and drawer units with granite worktops over. In the centre of the kitchen is a large island which has additional cupboards, matching granite worktops providing additional workspace and an inset five ring hob with modern extractor hood over. There are two recessed stainless-steel sinks, one for rinsing vegetables within the central island and the other one and a half bowl single drainer with a chrome monobloc mixer tap. The good quality appliances include a pull-out larder unit, an eye level steam oven, conventional electric fan assisted oven, micro wave combined with conventional oven and warming drawer, coffee dispenser, dishwasher, water softener and washing machine. Large double patio doors lead out onto the rear terrace and gardens beyond. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms which have luxury en-suite bath/shower rooms. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and has built-in wardrobes with sliding doors and a luxury en-suite bathroom with a quality four-piece suite including an oversized fixed screen shower with overhead rainwater shower and a large contemporary bath. The walls and floors are finished in natural porcelain tiles. This bathroom has jack and jill doors so it can also be used by the third bedroom.
