Lymore Grove is a carefully planned small development set in glorious seclusion on the edge of the village enjoying picturesque views across open countryside. The thriving village of Everton is ideally positioned on the fringes of the New Forest National Park and only two miles from the coast. There is a well regarded public house and a busy community shop that caters for most daily requirements.
The surrounding countryside is unrivalled in its variety and scope. From the vast open spaces of the New Forest that can be explored via seemingly endless footpaths, bridleways and cycle trails. To the south lies the coast and every opportunity for days on the beach at Milford on Sea or all manner of water sports at Keyhaven and Lymington which is itself a renowned centre for sailing with several marinas and yacht clubs.
Nearby schooling is excellent with an ‘Outstanding’ (Ofsted 2011/2012) primary school in neighbouring Milford on Sea and Priestlands, a well regarded secondary school in Lymington also on hand with a bus service running from the village. There are several popular independent schools in the area including Durlston (Barton on Sea), Walhampton (Lymington) and Ballard (New Milton).
Junction 1 of the M27 is just over 14 miles to the north providing access to Winchester, Southampton and London. Brockenhurst (6.5 miles) has a main line railway station offering direct services to London Waterloo in as little as an hour and a half.
Each of these four traditionally inspired houses has been individually designed around light, lifestyle and outlook with a high specification finish throughout. Each house is of Michelmersh brick elevations with either slate or clay roof tiles and has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en suite. On the ground floor each house has a central entrance hall leading to a generous sitting room with fireplace. The superb, spacious kitchen / breakfast rooms will be finished to an extremely high standard and the possibility remains for the buyer to have input into the final selection of kitchen style and appliances. These beautiful rooms all have bi-fold doors and an adjoining utility room with a separate back door. There is also a separate study and wc. A full specification list is available from the agents.
The carefully planned gardens vary in aspect but are predominantly south or west facing. All outside space will be carefully landscaped and incorporate wherever possible existing mature trees to complement this superb rural setting. Each house also has its own single garage and two parking spaces.
Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
