Positioned on a particularly peaceful no-through lane the house benefits from a quiet front aspect with very little passing traffic. At the end of the lane, approximately 125 metres from the front door, lie the open spaces of the New Forest which provides unrivalled walking, riding and cycling. The property offers a rural haven of tranquility with idyllic gardens given over to formal garden, paddocks and wildflower meadow beyond which there are views over unspoilt undulating countryside.
East End is a very popular village with its own Pub, The East End Arms, and a charming beach ideal for bathing at Tanners Lane. Sailing can be found at nearby Lymington and Bucklers Hard with superb shopping, dining and recreational facilities on hand in Lymington High Street which also has a weekly Saturday market. Trains to London Waterloo run twice an hour direct from Brockenhurst Station and take approximately 1h 45m.
The project of a major rebuild and renovation by the current owners, this charming four bedroom house extends to over 1,800 sq ft and has been finished in a highly sensitive and stylish fashion with great care devoted to the creation of living accommodation that blends the traditional features of a New Forest cottage with the expansive open plan living spaces of modern living. The hub of the house is the exceptional kitchen / family room which features vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling glazed doors and windows that have been designed to take in the expansive south westerly views down the garden.
This part of the house has wide doors from both areas opening onto a paved terrace beyond which is a contemporary mirror-pond which attractively reflects the sky and forms a focal point for the formal area of garden surrounding the house. The sitting room runs the entire width of the house and features a wood-burning stove and views over the front garden. There is also a further reception room, currently used as an office that would also make an excellent fourth bedroom as it is adjacent to a downstairs shower room. Also opening off the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms. The main bedroom is well proportioned with both an adjoining bathroom and separate dressing room. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom.
The gardens extend to 1.1 acres and form a particularly attractive element of the property and lie mostly to the rear of the house with a south westerly aspect. Immediately adjacent to the house is a terrace ideal for dining or sunbathing which overlooks the pond and enjoys delightful views down the gardens. Beyond the pond is a further area of lawn garden which gives way to two fenced paddocks which lie one beyond the other. Beyond the final paddock is a further area of garden which looks out on a particularly pretty landscape of undulating pasture and woodland where the current owners have created a boardwalk ideal for dining and drinks.
There is also a signficant outbuilding with brick elevations that has been built recently in a traditional style and providing over 1,100 sq ft of floor space. The ground floor has been left largely open plan with a separate shower room and further reception room / office. Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a further room running the length of the building.
This building will be painted and decorated in white including all skirtings and internal doors and windows. It will have its own boiler providing central heating and hot water to a full bathroom with bath, wc, basin and space for laundry appliances. The entrance area will have new storage cabinets and timber worksurface and the entire space will have a solid and usable chipboard floor ready for the purchaser to finish as required.
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.
