Boldre House occupies an impressive elevated position which takes full advantage of its commanding views across its own land. The house has been significantly remodelled and updated by the current owners yet there remains the potential for a new owner to finish putting their own touches to the extensive accommodation and land. The house benefits from thermal insulation to parts, a recently updated heating system incorporating underfloor heating, re-wiring throughout and external security lighting.

Accommodation extends to approximately 3,442 square feet. It has been indicated by the local authority that a further 938 square feet could be added (under 130% rule restrictions). The property benefits from permitted development rights which could be used to extend the property at the rear of the kitchen / dining room.

The front door opens to an impressive entrance hall with a staircase rising to the first floor. Accessed from the hall is a superb open plan living space with glorious views which comprises a kitchen, dining area and family room. The kitchen area features a particularly attractive lantern sky light while twin double doors open from this space into a fully glazed orangery with expansive views across the gardens and fields. There is also a separate sitting room (presently used as a study) which could also be used as a fifth bedroom. There is a utility room, downstairs wc, boiler room and boot room all of which can be reached either from the kitchen or hall. 

Upstairs there are four very well-proportioned double bedrooms all of which are reached from a large galleried landing. The principal bedroom suite includes a main bedroom with vaulted ceiling to ridge height and incorporates a generous dressing room separated from the main bedroom by ample fitted wardrobes. There is an adjoining newly fitted shower room and lobby.

On the opposite side of the landing, there are three further double bedrooms one of which has an en suite shower room and there is a large family bathroom both of which have been refitted to a high standard recently.

There are various outbuildings to include garage / store, summerhouse and storage building.

The house is approached via a private drive from Rope Hill that leads through electric gates to a large turning and parking area adjacent to the house and garage. The garage block is detached and over two floors with a double car port and separate single garage on the ground floor with external stairs leading to a workshop and home office on the first floor.

Landscaped gardens lead down from the house to a wide area of lawn where there is an outdoor swimming pool. Beyond the gardens are two large paddocks which have their own separate access from a private lane to the east and have been used in the past for grazing. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 8.4 acres.

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. Looking for an Estate Agent in Lymington? Spencers are here to help.
