Moments from the historic Georgian Market Town of Lymington and close to the shopping facilities of New Milton and Christchurch, 64 Barton Drive is within the catchments of well regarded local schooling. There is convenient access to motorways, the train Station (to Waterloo) and airports. There are also a range of active clubs and societies in the surrounding area and is situated moments from the coast, yachting marinas and New Forest National Park.
In our opinion this property is perfectly positioned for buyers wanting to enjoy life on the South Coast. The house has allowed our clients to embrace many outdoors pursuits from sailing, to walks in the open Forest and rounds of Golf on many of the local courses.The property itself has undergone significant improvement and presents to an exacting standard throughout. As can be seen from the floor plan the layout currently affords a large kitchen/dining/family room which runs along the rear of the property. There are large double doors which open directly to the private rear garden which proves ideal for grand scale entertaining and the current layout has allowed our clients to host many social gatherings.The versatile nature of the ground should suit most buyer’s requirements as there is a tremendous degree of flexibility to the use of space, particularly in the kitchen area. There remains further potential should a further reception room be required as the integral garage is accessed internally from the house. The living room is a generous size and can be accessed from both the family room and entrance hallway. A real feature of this room is the solid fuel burner our clients introduced which acts as a lovely focal point to the room. There is also a boot room with a w/c which is ideal for muddy children, golfing bags and wet dogs.
The first floor has four generous bedrooms with the master bedroom having comprehensive storage and a large en-suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom. Whilst the property has four bedrooms one which could prove ideal for a family, our clients as often is the case, are currently using one of the bedrooms a study.
We feel this could be an ideal property for buyers moving from larger homes whilst wanting to retain a sense of space and privacy or perhaps family buyers wanting a social house which can cope with the demands of day to day life. The area has a mix of retired, established and family occupants and is noted for being a quiet and idyllic coastal location.
To the front of the property there is a large blocked paved carriage driveway allowing access to the garage. The off road parking has enabled our clients to store a dingy and park numerous vehicles. There is side access to both sides of the house and potential for further secure parking to the side. (Please note any reference in these particulars is subject to relevant regulations and approvals).The rear garden has a large patio and the remainder of the garden, for low maintenance, is currently laid to lawn. The garden size is superb for families or gardening enthusiasts whilst not being too large for buyers wanting a garden to be a pleasure not a chore.
