The Georgian market town of Lymington offers cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour as well as two deep water marinas and outstanding sailing facilities. The town is surrounded by the natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. 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 a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
There is a low retaining brick wall to the front of the property with a small area for planting. To the rear of the house is a stone terrace and steps lead to the lawned garden. There are flower beds to both sides and the whole is retained by attractive brick wall with some trellis above and a wooden shed for garden storage.
The hallway runs the length of the house with the reception rooms leading off. There is a lovely spacious sitting room with sash window to the front, an open fireplace with exposed brickwork and fitted cupboards either side. The kitchen/dining room has garden views with a range of fitted cupboards and worktops, gas cooker point, space for fridge freezer and ample space for a dining room table. A staircase leads to the first and second floor accommodation. The utility room provides access through to the ground floor bathroom and houses the gas boiler, has plumbing for a washing machine and door to the rear garden.
The first floor accommodation comprises a large double bedroom with ample fitted cupboards, a second smaller double bedroom and a small shower room. The second floor has two further double bedrooms both with attractive dormer windows, one with fitted wardrobes.
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.
