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 provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
A secure entrance system allows access to the building and to this beautifully appointed apartment, which is on the second floor and accessed via a lift or the staircase. The communal spaces are kept in immaculate condition. The entrance hallway has beautiful wooden flooring and three generous storage cupboards. Glazed double doors lead into the main reception room with ample room for both a dining area and seating area. There is a glazed door with side glazed panels to the generous south facing balcony enjoying views over the playing fields and glimpses of the Isle of Wight. Double doors open to the kitchen, which is very well fitted with ample storage and work surface space, integrated dishwasher, eye level Bosch oven and grill with separate gas hob, integrated washing machine, extractor unit and microwave. There is space for an upright fridge/freezer and a range of shelving.
The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe with fitted shelving and a separate en-suite shower room. The second double bedroom is again a generous room with Velux roof lights. The third double bedroom is currently utilised as a generous study with some fitted shelves and ample room for office furniture. The good size bathroom completes the accommodation.
The communal grounds are well tended with areas of lawn and there is a private area with mature hedges immediately opposite the patio of this corner ground floor apartment. The development has been very well planned with visitor parking and resident parking around the building and in front of the detached garage that belongs to this apartment.
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.
