The house has a tarmac drive which leads to a detached single garage (currently partially blocked by a garden shed) and a paved area in front of the house providing parking for a further two cars and is screened from the road by a mature hedge. There is side access to a pretty walled rear garden which is paved and features a variety of mature climbing plants.
There are very few detached houses in Lymington that offer a more central and convenient location. The top of the high street is less than 175 yards away and Marks & Spencer is just around the corner. Despite being very close to the centre of town, the house is remarkably peaceful and is nicely set back from Belmore Lane which is a quiet, attractive road composed of established detached properties. Lymington offers a wide range of national and independent shops as well as a range of excellent pubs and restaurants. The town is renowned for its sailing clubs and deep water marinas which provide direct access to the Solent. Ferry services to the Isle of Wight leave regularly and there is a railway station providing services to London, via Brockenhurst in approximately 1 hour 50 minutes.
The front door leads to a spacious hall with a wc and stairs leading to the first floor. There is a large sitting room that has a door to the garden and also opens to a dining room, beyond which lies an attractive conservatory opening onto the garden. Accessible from both the dining room and the hall is a kitchen which has a range of fitted units and also has a back door to the garden. The neighbouring property has extended the kitchen into the garden to create a kitchen/breakfast room and the same could be possible here subject to the necessary consents.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is particularly large and has a range of built in wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of which open off a central landing.
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.
