A picket fence forms the front boundary with two separate driveways. A brick paviour driveway leads along one side of the house and the remaining frontage is of gravel leading to a detached garage. There are two wooden sheds to the side of the property as well as access to the rear garden. The garden is very well stocked with attractive shrubs and laid to lawn. There is a small vegetable area and a large stone terrace adjacent to the rear of the house. A door leads into the rear of the garage from the terraced area.
The property is situated close to the centre of the beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington and is within a short walking distance of its cosmopolitan shops and picturesque harbour. Also within easy reach are a range of local schooling, the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs, for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort. Lymington is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park and on Saturday a market is held in the High Street, the origins of which probably date back to the 13th century. To the north, is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27, which links to the M3 for access to London. There is also a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approx. 5.5 miles) which gives direct access to London Waterloo in 90 minutes.
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.
