A sweeping driveway leads to the triple garage building, where there are two open parking bays and a garage with double wooden doors. The gardens surround the house and have been mostly laid to lawn with specimen trees and well-established borders. A feature within the garden is the raised stone south-facing terrace running the length of the house. The boundaries comprise 6ft brick wall, close boarded fencing and mature hedging. There is a stone edged meandering water feature and a large wooden studio/summer house which overlooks the grounds. There is a large green house and two sheds within the grounds.

The spacious main reception room has a large marble fireplace, a generous square bay and two sets of glazed double doors; one set leads to the conservatory and garden terrace and one set to the magnificent kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating.

Living in Lymington
This vibrant and picturesque Georgian market town, positioned between the Solent, Lymington River and the New Forest, has been a massive draw for many people over the years.
It has always attracted ‘yachties’ as it’s considered the UK’s sailing capital with its boatyards, marinas and sailing clubs. It is also popular with families and retirees escaping London and the Home Counties in search of a better quality of life, often light-heartedly referred to as ‘Richmond by the Sea’. It’s also the choice for many in the New Forest who are considering downsizing, but want to remain in the area.
Lymington is a lively hub. It has a very distinctive centre with many independents (such as Elliotts of Lymington for designer fashion) as well as a strong smattering of top quality names (including Musto and Waitrose). A tasty range of eateries includes cafes, pubs and restaurants – check out two good tapas bars, Elderflower on Quay Hill (the chef is ex-Chewton Glen) and stylish Stanwells House Hotel. And every Saturday the High Street is taken over by a proper, old-fashioned market with everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to flowers and plants, fashion to fishing equipment, and vintage collectables to artisan food producers.
Property ranges from elegant period townhouses in the town centre to big family homes down leafy lanes ‘South of the High Street’ and new waterside development.
