DESCRIPTION AND CONSTRUCTION:
This substantial detached chalet residence was originally built as a bungalow, in the late 1960's on a traditional quarter acre plot. It was enlarged in 1999 to create a substantial chalet with versatile& spacious living accommodation of around 3,500 square feet. In addition, the current owners have upgraded the ground floor double glazing as well as the fascias & soffits. The property has been well maintained& offers versatile accommodation including a substantial dual aspect living room with feature fireplace incorporating Jotul multi fuel cast iron burner and solid wood parquet flooring, a large kitchen/breakfast room with separate dining room and utility room, four large bedrooms (2 on ground floor) with a fifth single bedroom and a large upstairs landing area currently used as a study/playroom. Three of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and there is a separate main bathroom on the ground floor. The property also has a modern gas fired central heating system, is fully double glazed & has ample off road parking for six vehicles plus a boat/caravan. In our opinion, in order to fully appreciate the internal presentation & proportions of the accommodation, a viewing is highly recommended.
14 Hill Way is pleasantly situated at the head of this popular residential cul-de-sac, within the heart of Ashley Heath. Local facilities include Cornerways Doctors Surgery, St Ives County First School, St Ives Post Office & General Stores, Moors Valley Country Park & 18 holegolf course, plus Avon Heath Country Park. The A31 dual-carriageway provides transport links to the Market Town of Ringwood with its weekly street market,in addition to comprehensive shopping, leisure & educational facilities.The larger neighbouring conurbations of Bournemouth (12 miles), Southampton (16 miles) & Salisbury (18 miles) are all easily accessible, in addition to the open New Forest which is some three miles distant.
From Ringwood leave in a westerly direction along the A31 dual carriageway, take the slip road to the Ashley Heath roundabout and then take the third exit onto the Horton Road. Proceed for approximately 1 mile and then take the 5th left onto Woolsbridge Road, then proceed for quarter mile, taking the 3rd left into Hill Way, at the T-junction turn right & proceed to the head of the cul-de-sac whereupon 14 is located in the far right hand corner.
