Occupying one of the area’s most desirable and secluded locations this glorious property is perfectly positioned. A secluded beach lies at the end of the no through lane offering quiet bathing and rock pooling as well as the perfect jumping off point for kayaks and paddle boards. Just to the north is the delightful hamlet of East End which has an excellent pub and there is a primary school in South Baddesley only a mile or so distant. Lymington is 3.5 miles away and caters for most daily requirements and offers a range of independent shops and chain stores with a collection of excellent pubs, restaurants and cafes. The house is surrounded by the open countryside of the New Forest with unlimited walks and cycle rides over the unspoilt surroundings. For those wishing to travel further afield, Lymington Pier railway station offers services to London Waterloo via Brockenhurst in approximately 2 hours.
Set nicely back from the lane and protected by a mature hedge and cottage garden, this picture perfect stone cottage offers comfortable, well finished accommodation with very nicely proportioned rooms and period features that marry sympathetically with contemporary comforts. On the ground floor there is a generous and bright sitting room with a polished wooden floor, an open fireplace flanked by alcoves and low level cupboards and a glazed door leading to the garden. This room opens to a large kitchen/dining room that has a range of fitted units, an Aga as well as an additional electric oven and halogen hob in a kitchen island. Both the kitchen/dining room and sitting room provide access to a rear family room, again with a fireplace fitted with wood burning stove that is overlooked by a galleried landing and has a vaulted ceiling providing a sense of space and light that is accentuated by glazed double doors opening to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and separate wc.
Upstairs there is a large galleried landing/study space that overlooks the family room and provides access to an inner landing from which the bedrooms are reached. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The house is approached via a drive to the side that provides parking adjacent to a store room with double entrance doors. There is a very attractive front garden that is mostly laid to lawn with a paved path running along the front of the house. To the rear is a paved courtyard garden reached via doors from the family room and enjoys views across open fields to The Solent and the Isle of Wight. This area provides a glorious sheltered space for outdoor dining as well as containing well stocked raised flower beds.
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.
