South facing and secluded, the property offers delightful and easily to maintain gardens which provide a relaxing place to unwind and take in the sea breeze. The whole has been thoughtfully planted with a range of attractive specimen shrubs and trees. A gravelled area leads to a beautiful water feature with a decked bridge and with pergola over leading to a further large sun terrace and barbecue area. There is an excellent studio/office with open veranda and a green living roof. This attractive cedar clad building could easily be used as an outdoor kitchen. Steps lead to the back door and into the hall from the garden and there is also a spiral staircase leading up to the kitchen. A rear gate gives access to the sailing park and the whole garden is extremely private being bordered by mature trees, shrubs and plants.
Quietly situated in one of the most desirable lanes to the south of the High Street, being within moments of the Marinas, Sailing Clubs and renowned restaurants. One can access the breathtaking walks of the sea wall within 250 meters and within 400 meters you are able to enjoy the Georgian market High Street which offers a wide range of cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour with cobbled streets to the town quay.
There is a branch line train linking Lymington to Brockenhurst Railway Station which provides a regular train service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
To take advantage of the river and sea views this “upside down” house was designed with open plan first floor living areas with a large balcony and ground floor bedrooms and bath/shower rooms.
The property is approached via electric gates which open onto a parking area giving space for 4 cars with access to the garage. Steps lead up from the gravelled drive to the front door opening into the spacious entrance hall. The master bedroom enjoys views across the back garden and sailing club beyond, being fitted with a good range of wardrobes as well as having an en suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three are both doubles having fitted wardrobes with each have a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a well appointed family shower room. Steps then lead down to a utility room and there is a courtesy door leading to the garage.
A sweeping glass staircase leads up to a magnificent open plan living room with full height windows and vaulted ceilings allowing natural light to flood in. Currently divided into sitting room with fireplace, a large dining area and modern comprehensively fitted kitchen. Glass sliding doors lead onto a generous south facing balcony with beautiful views over the rear garden, sailing park and Solent beyond. Adjacent to the open plan living room is a smaller room currently used as a study/library/snug with an en suite shower room. This room could also be used as a fourth bedroom if 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.
