RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY - NO FORWARD CHAIN - A fantastic opportunity to purchase a two-bedroom detached lodge situated in the picturesque Sandy Balls Country Park (with use of pools and gym at discounted rates), within the stunning New Forest National Park. The property comprises a superb extensive raised deck, with beautiful views towards the surrounding forest and Avon Valley. The property is offered with a perpetual lease and is only available to over 50's - conditions apply.

THE SITUATION

The property is situated within the Sandy Balls Country Park; a well known retreat for short breaks offering spectacular grounds and leisure facilities. Although the property is situated within the grounds of the holiday park, you are out of the way of the hustle and bustle during the busy season; set within private gardens and surrounded by beautiful Scots Pines offering a great deal of seclusion. There are only a handful of similar privately owned lodges within the small cul-de-sac with a lovely community feel. Fordingbridge is the closest town at approximately 3 miles, providing an excellent range of shops and amenities. The A338 is easily accessible, providing links to the market town of Ringwood (approximately 9 miles south), and to Salisbury (approximately 12 miles north). The larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch are approximately 19 miles south via the A338.

THE LOCAL AREA

Fordingbridge, with its distinctive seven arch bridge spanning the River Avon, is a former market town enjoying an idyllic location between the heath and woodland of the New Forest and rolling chalk downlands of Cranbourne Chase. The Avon Valley long-distance footpath from Salisbury to Christchurch runs through the town, meandering beside the Avon. The town has a high street of interesting independents, including an art gallery, bookshop and boutiques, and essentials such as butchers and bakers. There's also a great selection of country pubs and restaurants in the area, as well as excellent local schooling. The easily accessible A338 gives access to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway station (approximately 8 miles north), and the bustling coastal towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (approximately 18 miles south). Southampton is approximately 20 miles east (via the M27), and London approximately a two hour drive (via the M27/M3/M25).

THE PROPERTY

A covered entrance leads to the double aspect living room, with windows and door to the rear aspect, offering beautiful rural views. From the living room there is access to an adjoining sun room, again, with superb views and doors out to an extensive decking area. The kitchen comprises fitted units with space for appliances, with a door to the external decking. The two bedrooms are served by a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

OUTSIDE

To the front of the property is an area of open aspect garden and an adjacent shrub bed. A paved path leads to steps which raise to the large wooden decking area, with wooden balustrade, which wraps around the property and offers beautiful far reaching views towards the open forest to the rear. There is off road parking to one side of the property.
