Bickerley Road, Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24

££110,000 Guide

1 Bedroom Flat For Sale

In our opinion, this property stands out as one of the best within the block. A beautifully presented GROUND FLOOR retirement apartment, tastefully refurbished with thoughtful care to detail. The location is much sought after, only a few steps away from Bickerley, Millstream, Castlemain Trailway and within walking distance to all of Ringwood's valued amenities and library. Personal access to the adjoining terrace and communal gardens.





The entrance fire door (with key safe located in the main corridor) opens into bright and spacious open plan living, with much focus being tailored towards ease of movement should a Zimmer frame be required. There is cleverly positioned storage space, of which there is an abundance and the property has undergone a full refurbishment within the last 4 years, with only a fraction of this time inhabited by the current owners.

The kitchen features a comprehensive range of high gloss units and coordinating worktops, with curved corners and customized back lighting. Designed for ease, with corner carousels, pull out spice and bottle racks. There is also an extractor fan connected to the outside, which is situated above a ceramic hob and top of the range NEFF oven, with self-cleaning and automatic retractable shelves and a slide and hide door. Other integrated appliances include a quality fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Further washing facilities can be found on the same floor along the corridor offering free access to the laundry room.

The kitchen is open to the sitting room, where there is plenty of space for seating, storage, and a small dining table. This room receives light via the patio door which opens out to the adjoining terrace. The current owners have fitted plantation blinds which can be folded back or put in various positions for shade and privacy. Another inviting feature is the engineered oak flooring which extends throughout the kitchen and living area.

The double bedroom is fitted with custom-made, built-in storage, offering a range of hanging rails, deep-set drawers, and a dressing table. The room is also finished with recently fitted carpet and plantation blinds. The fully tiled shower room is entered via a sliding pocket door and enjoys a modern design, with a recently fitted suite, wall to wall shower cubicle, quality custom-built storage and extractor fan. There is also programmable thermostat for the heated towel rack.

The hallway and entry area offers hanging space for coats/shoes and there is a large airing/storage cupboard installed with an electric socket for a rechargeable hoover.

This residential complex for over 60 year olds is centrally located on the ground floor, within immediate proximity to the area of green (known as The Bickerley), in addition to the market place & high street of Ringwood town, offering a weekly street market, in addition to comprehensive shops, leisure & community facilities.
