The property is situated in Lymington’s prime Golden Triangle to the south of the High Street and positioned close to Lymington’s marinas and yacht clubs. This house is ideal for the sailing enthusiast. Lymington is situated on the southern edge of the New Forest and is recognised worldwide as a sailing resort. It is a picturesque market town with an excellent range of boutiques shops and restaurants, a weekly market, and a selection of cafes and pubs. The Lymington Railway Station is a branch line to Brockenhurst mainline station, where there is a mainline to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes). There are highly regarded independent schools in the area include Ballard, Durlston Court and Walhampton, while local state schools at every level are mostly rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Outside, the property is approached from Stanley Road by a gravel driveway which gives access to the front door and around the front of the property to the rear garden. The garden has been over the years planted with a variety of specimen trees, flowers and shrubs with a large flagstone terrace leading off from both the conservatory and the kitchen. There is an attractive lawn, beyond which are bedded plants, a timber framed green house and a summer house. It is fair to say this is more of a natural garden offering potential for a variety of uses.
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.
