There is an off street parking space to the front of the house and the main portion of garden lies to the rear of the house. Immediately adjacent to the house and accessed from the bi-fold doors from the kitchen/dining room is a terrace ideal for outdoor dining. Beyond the terrace, the garden remains level and is laid to lawn. The garden faces south west and contains a brick outbuilding at the rear boundary which provides useful additional storage.
Spring Road is a most sought after location, south of the High Street, within minutes of the Marinas and Sailing Clubs. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. Tothe 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.
This very well proportioned semi detached house is believed to date from the late 1800s and retains many appealing features of the period such as higher than average ceilings, nicely proportioned rooms and attractive exterior architecture including a first floor Juliet balcony. A wide path to the side of the house leads to the front door and onwards to a gate leading to the garden. The front door opens to a wide entrance hall beyond which lie the reception rooms and stairs to the first floor.The sitting room is to the front of the house and has been tastefully decorated in muted colours and features a recessed woodburning stove with a wooden mantel and wall mounted television. The rear of the house has been cleverly extended to create a superb kitchen/dining room featuring bi-fold doors opening onto the garden. The kitchen features built in appliances and a charming island containing a breakfast bar. Beyond the kitchen area is a delightful and bright living space that is currently used as a dining/family room that is bathed in light through most of the day due to its south westerly aspect. Also on the ground floor is a generous shower room featuring a shower, wc and basin. There is also has a utility cupboard housing the plumbing for a washing machine.
The stairs rise to a landing which provides access to two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a feature fireplace and built in wardrobe as well as a full height window and Juliet balcony. The second bedroom is also well proportioned and overlooks the garden. There is a beautifully fitted family bathroom featuring a panelled bath with shower over, wc and hand basin. Above the landing is a loft hatch providing access to the roof space which has the potential to be converted to further accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
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.
