The Corner House, Ringwood Road
A picturesque and luxuriously appointed eco-efficient new build family home, to include a two-bedroom converted barn and attached cottage, garaging and stables, situated within the New Forest National Park on a private and peaceful plot of approximately three acres. No chain.
Godwins House is set in a private but accessible location, surrounded by paddocks and woodland within Waterditch, a small rural Hamlet on the outskirts of the village of Bransgore, with its local amenities and array of New Forest Pubs. The location provides a brilliant balance between coastal and country, with Highcliffe and Avon beaches approximately four miles away. On the doorstep is open forest which is ideal for walks and cycling.
Christchurch town centre is just over three miles distant, enriched with the history of Christchurch Priory and Castle Ruins and offering a myriad of local restaurants and bars. Hinton Admiral train station provides a mainline commute to London and Bournemouth Airport offers a range of European options.
The family home.
Sympathetically designed and built to encompass the heritage of the surrounding countryside, the principal residence is a red-brick thatched family home. The quality of construction and the specification of every detail has been meticulously thought through, with no expense-spared, to provide an exacting and simply elite finish.
Entranced via storm porch, through front door into entrance hall with limestone flooring, providing access to all primary ground floor accommodation. The staircase is of note, with split string spindles and a handmade hardwood French polished handrail with aged brass stair rods, with an understairs storage cupboard.
The kitchen/dining area opens into an orangery providing a fabulous sociable entertaining space for all the family. Bespoke, handmade kitchen cabinetry ensures plenty of storage with hardwearing granite worktops. There is a range of high specification Miele and Liebherr appliances, a Quooker hot water tap, and a Falcon electric range cooker with induction hob. The dining area unfolds into living space in the form of an Orangery, with triple aspect glazing ensuring all-encompassing countryside views and an abundance of natural light, aided by the vaulted lantern above. The stress and ‘hustle and bustle’ of the general day-to-day of the busy modern work-life balance simply melts away to the all-enveloping sounds and smells of the surrounding nature and wildlife that define The New Forest National Park. Two sets of eloquently designed Georgian-styled bifolding doors provide access to the outside.
The main sitting room provides a relaxing space, with a feature traditional inglenook with stone plinths, limestone hearth and woodburning stove. French doors lead to an external area of patio and the main garden.
A study, with engineered herringbone wood flooring and a variety of data points, and a cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs, accessed via the landing are four well-proportioned double bedrooms, two with ensuites. The master bedroom features triple aspect windows, with incredible far-reaching viewings across the gardens and the immaculately appointed en-suite bathroom features Villeroy & Boch Quaryl bath with handheld shower, seamless walk-in shower, floating vanity unit with inset sink and WC. The second bedroom also features far-reaching views and a similarly beautifully appointed ensuite shower room, featuring seamless walk-in shower, floating vanity unit with inset basin and WC. The further two bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom.
All the bathrooms and shower rooms have marble wall and floor tiling. The first floor bathrooms have electric under floor heating. The remainder of the ground and first floor benefits from a ‘wet’ zonal underfloor heating system and individual Heatmiser controlled thermostats for each room in the house.
The barn & cottage
Adjacent to the family home is a beautiful, versatile converted barn and attached cottage, which could be utilised as an annexe, home and income or a space for entertaining and hosting extended family. Again, sympathetically designed to encompass the local surroundings, with newly slated roof and New Forest Douglas fir boarding.
The living area features a truly impressive, vaulted ceiling with oak A-frames and engineered oak flooring. Handmade panelled walls and cabinets provide a seamless finish, matched by the integrated 77” LG OLED television. Crittall doors, windows and bifolding doors bring the outside inside, with a wealth of natural light and opening onto the patio.
The kitchen boasts eye and base level handmade cabinetry with granite worktop over, and a range of integrated appliances, limestone tiled floor and further double doors to access the patio. There are two well proportioned double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other serviced by an upstairs shower room.
Godwins House is situated on a plot of approximately three acres of garden land, laid mainly to lawn with hard and soft landscaping and surrounded by paddocks and countryside. The rear garden slopes down to a small stream.
The patio area with pergola over is a real asset, epitomising the al fresco dining experience in a tranquil setting. Flawlessly landscaped with a range of seating areas and a garden room comprising, outdoor fire and chimney, and outdoor sound system, providing a relaxing entertaining space for a summer’s evening. A handy boot room offers practicality, especially with all the local New Forest walks and features limestone flooring, WC, sink and mezzanine flooring.
A bricked garden wall runs from the garaging to the family home and across to the barn, with feature arched doors providing access from front to rear gardens.
Accessed via electric entry gates with video intercom system, to a long sweeping gravelled driveway to the left and up to the courtyard and garaging. The garaging comprises triple bay, with two open bays and one locked single garage and a gym/office room above.
