The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within walking distance of the property. Also close by are the two deep water marinas and the sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort. The open-air seawater bath, built in 1833 is extremely popular with families and close to the town centre. Lymington has a number of independent shops including some designer boutiques and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. 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 approximately 90 minutes.
On entering the property there is an impressive double height hallway with a galleried landing. The living room has a bay window to the front elevation which enjoys the private frontage. The generous living room is open to the dining room which is perfectly situated for entertaining, being next to the kitchen/breakfast room and with glazed double doors opening to the south facing garden.
The immaculate kitchen/breakfast room has ample light granite work surface and a breakfast bar incorporating a Neff induction hob. There is also a separate Lamona fan oven and grill, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is a large storage cupboard and the utility room is adjacent to the kitchen with direct access to the rear garden and plumbing for the washing machine as well as a door into the integral garage.
To the first floor the vaulted main bedroom is located to the front of the property and enjoys tree top views. This bedroom has an attractive “walk through” arrangement of fitted wardrobes and an immaculate en suite shower room with window. There are three further double bedrooms, all are serviced by a beautiful family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.
To the front of the property the garden has been hard landscaped and a block paved driveway provides parking and leads to the integral garage. There is a further area of land in front of the property which abuts an area of light woodland. This area was created for the homes in this small turning to be able to enjoy a leafy backdrop and is maintained in an organic fashion matching with the surroundings. The rear garden has again been landscaped for ease of maintenance and enjoys a southerly sunny aspect. The garden has a variety of mature shrubs and trees which during Spring, Summer and Autumn months provides a good degree of privacy to the rear. Two separate areas have been created in the garden for alfresco dining and another for comfortable seating.
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.
