A covered porch leads to the welcoming and spacious reception hallway with a stunning sweeping staircase leading to the galleried first floor landing and also to the second floor accommodation. This well-planned home has four generous reception rooms and a large kitchen/breakfast room, flooded with light from the full height windows and doors to the garden. The kitchen area has ample storage provision and a range of integral appliances such as the American style fridge and freezer, dishwasher and waste disposal unit, induction hob, double ovens and a microwave. The kitchen opens to the beautiful breakfast day room with large windows and doors to the south and west facing garden and terrace.
Glazed double doors lead into the drawing room which is well proportioned with a beautiful fireplace forming a focal point. A further door leads into the large garden room; again a stunning spacious and light room ideal for casual dining and overlooking the garden. The ground floor accommodation also comprises a beautifully appointed formal dining room, a cloakroom and a utility room which leads into the double integral garage with electric entrance doors and door to the garden at the rear.
The first floor accommodation comprises a master bedroom suite, with ample fitted furniture and wardrobes arranged in a dressing area leading to the spacious en-suite bathroom with dual vanity unit, separate shower, spa bath, wc and heated towel rail. There are three further double bedrooms each with en-suite facilities and a fifth bedroom currently used as a study.
The second floor has the potential to become a self-contained annexe with the addition of a lift from the ground floor . This floor enjoys 270 degree views from the extra large Velux balcony windows overlooking Grove Gardens. The current owners have created a restful library and games room here, complete with snooker table. There is also a shower room on this floor.
West Hayes, a cul-de-sac, is a most exclusive sought after location tucked behind the High Street, adjacent to Grove Gardens and moments from the world-renowned sailing facilities with deep water marinas, the Royal Lymington Yacht Club and the Lymington Town Sailing Club as well as stunning coastal walks. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers extensive restaurants and boutiques and a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. 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 a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes. There is a range of both state and private schooling, with the popular Walhampton preparatory school close by.
The driveway to the front of the house allows parking for at least three vehicles. There is access to the rear garden along the side of the property. The rear garden is walled and well stocked. There is a wooden painted summer house and raised deck as well as a pergola walkway with a mature wisteria and vine leading along one side of the garden to a private double gate at the rear, which gives quick and easy access to Grove Gardens and the town centre. The remaining garden is laid to lawn and there is a large entertaining terrace adjacent to the back of the house.
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.
