The property occupies an outstanding position overlooking the water and is a short walk from the High Street, Station, Town Quay, Marinas and Yacht Clubs. Lymington is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. To the north, are the New Forest villages of Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27, which links to the M3 giving access to London. There is a rail branch line link to Brockenhurst main line Station (approx. 5.5 miles) which gives direct access (half hourly) to London Waterloo in 90 minutes.
A contemporary home of Art Deco-style influences with large picture windows and extensive sun terrace to maximise the river views, allows the house to make the most of its location close to the Lymington River and the Solent. The house has recently undergone a program of upgrading and refurbishment and offers light-filled, spacious rooms, many enjoying views across the river to the Isle of Wight. Accommodation highlights include the dining/reception hall with a white painted oak, glass and steel staircase rising against a spectacular double-height window, a spacious open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with bespoke hand painted kitchen units, navy blue four-oven electric Aga, the latest luxury conveniences such as a steam oven and American-style fridge. French windows lead to a private east-facing terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a generous wet room/boot room, utility and food preparation room, laundry and pantry.
The spacious first floor drawing room enjoys stunning views and a newly fitted fireplace flanked by fitted bookcases. A circular skylight floods the room with light and glazed double doors opens onto a large south and west-facing sundeck which is extensively used for alfresco dining and “sundowners” following busy sailing days. A particular feature of the property is “The Bridge” to the second floor. This study or sixth bedroom has windows on three sides giving panoramic views over the Royal Lymington Yacht Club, the Lymington River and the Solent. There are a total of five bedrooms, including three having stunning and well designed en suite facilities. All bathrooms have been fitted and decorated to differing styles in bright cheerful colour palate. The integral double garage, accessed from the entrance hallway has been fully insulated and fitted with storage shelving. A door leads to the plant/boiler room. Overall there is impressive attention to detail and a high standard of finish throughout.
The house is approached through electric wooden double gates, with a side pedestrian access gate which lead to the driveway giving access to turning, parking and the integral double garage with secure electric door. Grounds of just under a third of an acre include south and west-facing lawned gardens, flagstone terraces, cedar trees, a substantial brick and slate outbuilding and a further gravelled area ideal for storing a boat and trailer with access onto the adjacent car park from where a dinghy can be launched directly onto the water. In addition to the Gardens, the large first floor sundeck provides a lovely outside seating area with outstanding views across the water.
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.
