The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy reach of the property. Also within walking distance are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort, as well as an open-air seawater bath that was built in 1833. 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.
To the front of the property is a driveway and parking in front of the integral garage. The front garden is well screened with mature shrubs and enjoys views over the residents’ green opposite. There is access to the rear of the house to the south facing and private rear garden with garden shed and patio area adjacent to the rear of the house. The garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and can be accessed from the patio doors leading from the dining room.
A delightful hallway which has double height, being open to the first floor, provides a welcoming reception area. There is a cloakroom and doors to the principal rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room is in need of updating. It is well designed with room for breakfast table and currently has a range of white storage cupboards with ample work space above and integrated appliances to include a fridge/freezer, eye level oven and separate hob. There is a large under stairs storage cupboard and a door to the separate utility room, where a door leads to the rear garden and another to the rear of the integral garage. The utility room has a range of storage cupboards, a sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The dining room is accessed from both the kitchen and sitting room and has sliding patio doors to the rear garden. The room is open to the generous sitting room which has a large bay window to the front aspect.
The first floor landing has an airing cupboard and access to the loft space. The master bedroom suite has been designed with two large wardrobes and a dressing area leading into the main bedroom area where there are pleasant views across the residents’ green. A door leads to the en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, one having fitted wardrobe and all served by the well-appointed family bathroom with separate shower and bath.
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.
