The nearby A31 offers access to the larger coastal towns which include Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch with their award winning beaches, main line trains, and the coach interchange in Ringwood. Bournemouth/Hurn International Airport is within a short drive and there is easy access to Southampton which in turn provides road links to London.

There is a modern and very well equipped kitchen which offers an excellent range of soft closing eye, base level cupboards and drawers. The work top is finished in a high quality quartz with concealed lighting to the wall units and plinths.

The rear gardens are easily accessed via the side gate or garage, or rear utility door and offer a beautiful setting among the wonderfully landscaped areas which include an oriental theme, carefully designed by the current owners and featuring a raised decked patio and a stone laid outside dining area under an elegant oriental style gazebo. The main patio area is accessed via a sliding patio door leading from the family room.
