The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy walking distance of the property. Also within walking distance are local primary and infants schools, Waitrose Supermarket, Marks & Spencers, two large deep water marinas and the open air salt water baths. 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.
The double glazed entrance porch allows for boots and umbrellas and opens on to the spacious kitchen/dining room. The newly fitted kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary units and wooden work tops and allows for a dining or breakfast table beneath the bay window. In addition there is ample space for a fridge, freezer and washing machine. The rear of the garage, accessed from the kitchen, there is a family shower room and utility room with plumbing for the washing machine. The stairs to the first floor occupy one corner of the kitchen and provide an additional understairs storage cupboard. The kitchen leads through to the living room which is large enough to accommodate a three piece suite and a small table and offers a relaxing space with patio doors opening to the small courtyard.
Stairs lead up to the landing and there are two double bedrooms, the master bedroom to the front offers a light and spacious room with twin windows and a built in cupboard. The second bedroom is again of a good size with a view to the rear. The newly fitted bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation.
A generous frontage allows parking for approximately two cars, with a garage which has an up and over door and provides additional parking or storage. Access to the enclosed rear courtyard is via the kitchen or through the garage. The small courtyard is a real sun trap offering a peaceful and private outside space. Wooden stairs have cleverly been added to provide a raised decking area to catch the last rays of the westerly sun.
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.
