The 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.
The rear garden is a particular feature of this delightful cottage being mainly walled and having a brick terrace immediately adjacent to the kitchen/dining room. The garden is well-stocked and there is a seating area in front of the brick-built shed. This building would convert to a very good home working space. A pedestrian gate at the rear of the garden allows access to Gosport Street and to the station and for bikes and garden cuttings etc.
On entering the property there is an entrance porch with inner door and room for coat storage. The main living room is a generous space with window to the front aspect and glazed patio doors to the south facing garden at the rear. The whole is light and bright and there is an original fireplace and fitted shelves. Stairs lead to the first and second floor accommodation. There is a cupboard under the stairs which houses the hot water cylinder and has shelving and hanging space. The kitchen is modern and of a galley style with side aspect window and a lovely sitting area, as well as space for dining furniture and where there is a further set of glazed patio doors leading to the stunning walled and well-stocked cottage style south facing garden. The kitchen has a range of integrated appliances including a Bosch oven, separate Bosch gas hob with stainless steel extractor hood over and Panasonic combination microwave. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine, fridge and freezer and dishwasher.
To the first floor, bedroom one is a generous double with fitted wardrobes and a window to the front aspect. Bedroom two is again a double room with fitted cupboard and rear aspect window giving glimpses of Lymington River. The family bathroom is generous with a separate shower and bath, low level wc and hand basin. A second staircase, with a small shelved cupboard under, leads to the vaulted loft room, currently utilised as an occasional bedroom/study with plenty of under eaves storage space and two Velux windows to the rear aspect also giving glimpses of the river.
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.
