This spacious and nicely presented bungalow offers light and flexible accommodation that has been extended to provide a third bedroom that is currently used as an additional sitting room. The front door opens to an enclosed porch beyond which lies a hall that leads to the sitting room which has a large south facing picture window and feature fireplace flanked on one side by a built in cupboard and shelving unit. An arch leads through to the dining room which also has a door to the kitchen with a range of high and low level fitted units, space for an electric cooker and a glazed door opening onto the garden.
There are three nicely proportioned bedrooms as well as a bathroom and separate wc. Other bungalows in the road of a similar age and style have been extended into the roof to create additional accommodation and there is the possibility to do the same here subject to the usual consents.
This delightful bungalow sits on an attractive residential road on the western fringes of the beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour. Less than a mile away are Waitrose Supermarket and Marks & Spencer with two large deep water marinas and the open air salt water baths aproximately one mile beyond. 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 house is approached over a block paved driveway that provides ample off street parking and access to the garage. Beyond the driveway is a small area of lawned garden that is both south facing and exceptionally secluded as it is protected from the road by a mature hedge. The main gardens lie to the rear of the house with a paved terrace immediately adjacent to the rear of the house from which there are double doors into the impressive extended garage which provides parking and generous work space as well as an electrically operated vehicular door.
From the terrace, steps lead up to a slightly raised lawned garden with mature fruit trees and hedging at the boundaries. Due to its slight elevation, the garden has a very attractive southerly aspect.
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.
