There is an abundance of parking to the front of the property and this apartment also benefits from its own private garage. There is an attractive communal garden which is laid mainly to lawn with some mature hedging and some colourful planting. This offers a quiet and tranquil space away from the busy town life.
On entering the communal area the stairs rise to the first floor. The property has a welcoming hallway which affords access to all rooms. The kitchen/dining/living room has a flexible arrangement and allows for a casual seating and dining area. Sliding doors give access out on to the large sunny balcony for outside entertaining and dining. The views from the balcony are breathtaking and reach across the river taking in the marina and bustling yachts heading up and down the water. The newly fitted in March 2018 kitchen boasts high gloss white base units, fitted electric oven and hob, space for a washer dryer and space and electric point for a built in refrigerator.
There are two bedrooms, one comfortable double with large built in wardrobe and a further smaller double/large single with space for a wardrobe. There is a newly fitted shower room and separate cloakroom with wc and hand wash basin. There is also ample storage with a fitted cupboard and separate airing cupboard.
The property has been decorated throughout with Farrow & Ball. The low maintenance of this modern property, convenient position within striking distance of restaurants and yacht clubs and also being on the doorstep of the open forest, make this apartment an ideal base for people wishing to enjoy the best of Hampshire life. An added advantage is that holiday lets are permitted.
The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy reach of the property. Also within walking distance are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort, as well as an open-air seawater bath that was built in 1833. Lymington has a number of independent shops including some designer boutiques and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. On Saturday, a market is held in the High Street, the origins of which probably date back to the 13th Century. To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 for access to London. There is also a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) providing a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of 90 minutes.
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.

This wonderfully positioned two bedroom first floor apartment with south facing balcony affords far reaching views of the Lymington River and set moments from the centre of Lymington. The property was undoubtedly designed to embrace waterside living as from all floors there are superb views. The property enjoys communal gardens, a private garage and has been refurbished by the current owner. We feel this apartment offers a strong appeal to purchasers wanting to acquire a pied a terre which embraces the true sailing ambience of Lymington life. Energy Efficiency Rating: DSave Property
