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.

The impressive reception hall features a vaulted gallery with a stylish oak and glass staircase, whilst Travertine natural stone flooring extends throughout the hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and Orangery. Access is provided to a newly created cloakroom, which is beautifully finished with a contemporary suite and natural stone tiling, whilst a separate utility room provides plumbing and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. The superb kitchen/breakfast room features a tall vaulted ceiling which continues through the adjoining Orangery. This naturally bright and spacious room features a superb range of Shaker style units under Quartz and Oak working surfaces, with a Porcelain tiled feature wall with attractive wood-effect finish. There is a central island with built-in breakfast bar which incorporates an induction hob, inset Innova white ceramic sink with waste disposal and Optima instant hot water tap, plus twin Smeg stainless steel ovens, dishwasher, integrated fridge and freezer and a walk-in pantry cupboard. The kitchen is open to the dining room which has double oak and glass doors concealing a built-in drinks cabinet and bar, which has been beautifully finished in oak and incorporates a drinks fridge, whilst French doors open to a paved courtyard garden. Accessed from the kitchen is the adjoining Orangery which has a glass vaulted ceiling, natural Travertine stone flooring and French doors opening to the garden. An arch leads from the kitchen into the family room which has a superb aspect overlooking the private rear terrace and gardens. This room features a contemporary remote-control flame gas fire and has French bi-fold doors leading onto the rear terrace. There is a separate dual aspect sitting room, which could also be utilised as a TV or cinema room, which is nicely positioned with both side and rear aspects. Leading from the hall is a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room, which could also be utilised as a study or home office. A staircase leads to the first-floor galleried landing, through to four beautifully appointed bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a Juliet balcony which provides a very pleasant aspect overlooking the rear gardens and benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and an attractive en-suite bathroom with a high quality four-piece suite. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both benefit from generous en-suite shower rooms with three-piece suites incorporating a rainwater shower and contemporary sanitary ware, whilst being beautifully finished with Porcelain tiles. There is also a fourth bedroom which is currently utilised as a dressing room and a large walk-in airing cupboard.

Outside, the property is approached through electrically operated double gates which lead to a large gravel parking courtyard and to a Heritage style twin-bay car port. The existing garage has been cleverly converted into a home office with built-in office furniture, plus a cloakroom and useful store room. The surrounding gardens extend to approximately two thirds of an acre and have been beautifully landscaped to create a low maintenance garden.
