Full description

TENURE: share of freehold

Matcham Manor Farm delivers the perfect opportunity to create yourself an idyllic lifestyle. Located on the outskirts of Ringwood and surrounded by the beautiful forest this unique property gives a clean crisp modern finish internally with nature right on your doorstep externally.

This 2 bedroom first floor flat is part of a barn conversion developed in circa 1999, it consists of 6 flats in total and this property comes with 25% of the freehold and a long lease circa 999 yrs. 

As you drive up to the property along a private lane the scenery that surrounds you is very rare. It sets the scene for the quiet lifestyle that it offers. The Avon Forest surrounds the property from all angles without any interruption from houses overlooking you, giving you all the privacy you require.

At the most southerly point of the main building you ascend the metal stairs up to the front door. As you enter the property your greeted with a home  that feels very welcoming. Quirky angles and the fact the rooms aren't a standard square makes this whole property interesting throughout. The entrance hall delivers handy spaces for hanging your coats and keeping the walking boots out the way. 

The main living area is at the rear of the property providing you with large sliding doors that open out to the balcony, which is big enough to hold a large table/chairs and a BBQ giving you the ideal location for alfresco dining. The balcony is south facing and the view as the sun goes down is breathtaking and you can often catch a glimpse of the deer running through.  The lounge / Diner is of good size with plenty of space to segregate a dining area opposite the entrance to the kitchen if you wish but still leaving a large space for a big comfy sofa and entertainment system all offering the view through the sliding doors.

The kitchen adjoins the living area and has been cleverly designed to interlink with the main living area. A modern kitchen with plenty of worktops and cupboards coupled with integrated appliances to include a dishwasher, washing machine and cooker with eye-line oven. Large french doors separate the main living area with the rest of the property so you can completely shut your self off if desired.

Both bedrooms are at the rear of the property, the Master bedroom is a good sized double room with built in wardrobes and a large En-Suite that consists of a shower and modern accessories. The bedroom has slanted angles giving the room real character and also benefits from french doors that open out. There is the possibility of adding a small balcony here if you wish, making it the ideal place to have your morning coffee. The second bedroom is adjacent and again can hold a double bed which is complemented by further built in wardrobes and angled features. There is an additional bathroom which is a good size delivering a shower over bath and modern suite.

This property really does deliver something very different, an idillic and quiet location with good space, modern features and all within a short drive to Ringwood town or in the other direction the beautiful town of Christchurch. Local amenities are close by but the attraction of this property is that you are tucked far enough away to sit back and let nature engulf you. 

The property has been totally remodelled and renovated by the current owners, and is presented to a high standard throughout. Everything runs on electric but there is a specialised boiler which means you have a modern central heating system rather than the normal storage heaters. It has an allocated parking space along with a selection of visitor spaces. 

If your looking for a quiet get away, a lifestyle change of gear or just somewhere you can retire to at the end of a hectic day then this property will not disappoint. Viewing is highly recommended to really appreciate the full impact the location delivers.
