Saxon Place is a small development of substantial detached houses surrounded by protected woodland, which is only accessible for the residents. This lends to the rural atmosphere, while retaining the convenience of being only 0.8 miles from the independent boutiques, restaurants and cafe culture available on the Lymington High Street. The New Forest National Park is also within easy reach, with glorious and extensive walks and cycle paths across unspoiled countryside. Lymington is also the world-renowned centre for sailing with deep water marinas and thriving sailing clubs. There is a range of excellent local schools, both private and state schooling, as well as a tertiary college in Brockenhurst (only one stop away on the branch railway line from Lymington station). Mainline rail services to London Waterloo from Brockenhurst (approximately 90 minutes).
This impressive family house has been imaginatively updated and extended by the current owners to create stunning living spaces. The property enjoys complete privacy and is surrounded by protected woodland offering tranquility and seclusion.

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.
