Conveniently positioned in an extremely popular area of Lymington, the house is ideally situated for the shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants of the High Street as well as having Waitrose just around the corner. Western Road is composed of mainly period houses dating back to the turn of the century and before. Set back from the road with a small front garden and side access, the house has a south facing rear aspect flooding the garden, kitchen and family room with natural light. Lymington is renowned as a sailing and holiday destination with a range of deep water marinas, a vibrant high street and superb access to the New Forest which lies almost immediately to the north.
This beautiful Victorian semi detached villa was clearly originally built to be a property of some stature with mellow brick on the front elevation, well proportioned living rooms, high ceilings and a delightful bay window in the sitting room. The superb accommodation has been further enhanced in recent years by the current owner who has undertaken a sensitive and thoughtful programme of extension and updating which has combined the beautiful traditional features with contemporary fixtures fittings and building techniques. These are most apparent in the superb kitchen / dining room which forms the heart of the house and is a superb space for living and entertaining. South facing bi-fold doors open across the south facing rear elevation and flood the room with light as well as providing easy access to the secluded courtyard garden. The kitchen has a large island unit, high end built in appliances, under floor heating and useful additions such as a Quooker permanent hot water tap. The sitting room has an original open fire place flanked by book shelves and a charming bay window. There is also a very useful utility room and downstairs wc.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both of which have built in cupboards and a bright, well finished bathroom at the rear with plantation shutters. There remains the potential to further extend the property into the loft subject to the usual consents.
There is a pretty front garden planted with a mature hydrangea and path leading to the front door. There is also a side access with secure gate leading to the garden. The garden itself is particularly private, paved and faces south. It can also be reached via wide bi-fold doors that span the rear of the kitchen / dining room and make thins low maintenance courtyard garden ideal for entertaining.
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.
