DESCRIPTION & CONSTRUCTION:
Ridge House was originally built by a local family for their own occupation in 1976. The present owners have resided in the property for the past 16 years & completely embraced the individuality & versatility of both the internal accommodation & unique setting. The property offers many design features with accommodation on four levels offering the opportunity of the creation of a self contained annexe. The kitchen has been completely custom built with 'state of the art' appliances, in contrast to the granite worksurfaces. Some of the original features including attactive cedar panelled vaulted ceilings in contrast to exposed mellow brickwork enhance the individuality of the property. Other features include triple glazing, gas central heating, superfast broadband modern bathroom suites, front & rear balconies, sun decks, plus a 28'  (8.53m ) x 14' (4.27m) heated swimming pool, with a maximum depth of 5' (1.52m).

IN OUR OPINION, TO FULLY APPRECIATE BOTH THE PROPERTY'S LOCATION & IT'S INTERNAL LAYOUT, A VIEWING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

SITUATION:
Ridge House is set on a plateau site, within the prestigious area of Ashley, approached from Hurn Road via electrically operated gates & a meandering driveway. The gardens, which are a particular feature of Ridge House, are set on the southern elevation & incorporate a heated swimming pool. There are extensive views across Ringwood skyline from the first floor balcony. The market town centre of Ringwood is within one & a half miles & is accessible on foot or bike, via the Castleman Trailway, which enters Ringwood from the area known as The Bickerley. The A31 & A338 provide links to Bournemouth 12 miles, Southampton 16 miles & Salisbury 18 miles. Airports & rail links are also gained via Bournemouth & Southampton. The open New Forest is within 2 miles. 

DIRECTIONAL NOTE:

As the road bears round to the right take the immediate turning left, prior to the underpass into Hurn Lane.
