DESCRIPTION AND CONSTRUCTION:
Four Seasons was originally built 15 years ago, by the present owners, as a bungalow with the option to substantially enlarge the property, subject to a planning consent which was obtained in 2009, when the property became this impressive chalet residence, totaling 3220sq.ft. The accommodation has been superbly crafted to provide comfortable living & adaptable accommodation on two levels, with a particular emphasis on well proportioned rooms in first class order throughout.
The property incorporates many design features including an impressive reception hall with galleried landing & vaulted ceiling, red oak flooring to principal rooms with under floor heating to all of the ground floor accommodation. The lounge has a feature fireplace & chimney. The kitchen has been custom built with a variety of integrated appliances & granite work surfaces. There is a comprehensive sound system to the principal rooms. There is a 'centralised' vacuum system. The principal bedroom has en-suite dressing room, & bathroom/shower room. There is an additional fully tiled bathroom/shower room & an en-suite fully tiled shower room to the guest bedroom on the first floor. The property has gas fired central heating & all entrance doors and windows are white finish aluminium MK3 Ovolo composite Duo-therm and double glazed. The first floor open plan living area could easily be adapted to provide additional bedroom accommodation, if required. The grounds have been delightfully landscaped & the name, Four Seasons, was chosen to reflect the four areas surrounding the garden. There is a comprehensive parking area accessed via electrically operated gates, & a long private driveway. There is an oak framed double garage & separate work shop, plus an open fronted additional parking area, gravel driveway & brick paviour path which in turn leads to a concrete paved patio area & sun deck, which have all been extremely well maintained.
AGENTS NOTE: IN OUR OPINION, TO FULLY APPRECIATE THE QUALITY & SIZE OF FOUR SEASONS, AN INTERNAL VIEWING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.
Four Seasons is delightfully set on the eastern side of this popular residential lane, within close proximity to Crow Farm Shop, which offers a variety of fresh produce, daily. The market town centre of Ringwood is a mile & a quarter distant offering a weekly street market, in addition to comprehensive shopping, leisure, & educational facilities. The open New Forest is within one & a half miles distance. The A31 & A338 provide transportational links to the main centres of Bournemouth 12 miles, Southampton 16 miles & Salisbury 18 miles.
From the main Ringwood roundabout adjacent to the town centre car park, leave in an easterly direction along the old Southampton Road, passing Carvers Recreation Field. Take the immediate turning, prior to the dual-carriageway flyover, turn right into Parsonage Barn Lane, continue to the end of this road, & at the t-junction turn left into Hightown Road. Continue to the end of this road & at the t-junction turn right into Eastfield Lane, follow the road around to the left hand side, & take the immediate turning right opposite the Elm Tree Inn into Crow Lane. Continue along Crow Lane for approximately a quarter of a mile, whereupon the entrance to Four Seasons is on the left hand side, located between the properties known as Oak Leaves & Ryde.
