Snails Lane, Blashford, Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24


3 Bedroom Detached House Sold

Agents Note: Searches will be available for purchase.

A wonderful opportunity to acquire approx. 1.2 acres of land with views across Blashford Lake to the North and Linbrook Lake to the South on the highly desirable Snails Lane. The plot known as Holmwood is in a quiet and secluded location only 2 miles from the market town of Ringwood. The previous home on the plot has been demolished and the site cleared to facilitate the immediate build of a sustainably built oak framed home.

Planning Permission: Full detailed planning permission was granted by New Forest District Council on 13 August 2020. The granted permission is to build a three bedroom, oak framed 'eco home' approaching 2,200 sq ft with stunning lake views front and rear, triple glazing, vaulted ceilings, ground source heat pump and much more. Agents Note: details of full planning can be found online. Please visit, with the planning application number 20/10473.

Subsequent to the receipt of the planning permission, the vendors have commissioned an Arboricultural Method Statement and Tree Protection Plan which has been accepted (the condition has been discharged) by the planning officers and facilitates the felling of some of the trees. The vendors have also had a Landscape Scheme professionally prepared which has also been accepted by the planning officers (condition discharged).

All other relevant documentation including the Design & Access Statement and detailed plans can be found online.

Additional opportunities
Holmwood has retained a substantial two bay garage with a Nissen Hut behind it and whilst permitted development rights have been removed so that the planning officers can control new development, due to them being in situ for more than 10 years, it should be possible to obtain permission to replace these existing buildings, with a new oak framed 2-3 bay garage with store attached - albeit, not guaranteed.

In addition the vendors have retained a large outbuilding where again permitted development rights have been removed, but were planning permission to be obtained you could replace this building with an in-keeping summer house and or workshop - again, albeit, not guaranteed.

The vendors have had an oak frame design prepared by Oakwrights and building regulation drawings produced which could be made available to the successful purchaser. The oak frame will enable efficient use of materials in its construction phase off site. This enables the materials to be cut efficiently minimalising waste.

Day to day heating/cooling and hot water will be met by a ground source heat pump. The triple glazing enables the property to interact beautifully with the garden spaces bringing the outdoors in, in a thermally efficient way.


The popular market town of Ringwood has much to offer in the way of amenities, including numerous country pubs & restaurants, boutique shops, a David Lloyd Health & Leisure Club and is host to much sought after educational establishments. The area borders The New Forest, giving access to acres of moor, heath and woodland offering a wide range of pursuits such as cycling, walking, riding & fishing. The A31 & A338 dual carriageways provide links to the sandy coastline of Bournemouth (8 miles south), Salisbury (18 miles north) & the M27 for Southampton (18 miles east). National Express coaches make regular trips to London & all its airports.

Holmwood is located on a private road called Snails Lane, where it has a variety of mature trees and shrub growth. Its grounds are private with no major significant vantage points into the property. It is a unique development opportunity with a private setting whilst still close to more built-up areas. Blashford Lake is to the North and Linbrook Lake to the South. The land is level and the Lane is characterised by substantial detached houses set within spacious grounds with good levels of tree and shrub planting.
