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 gives direct access to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes.
Steps rise to the front door with a covered porch and open in to the south facing lounge with original wide floorboards and open fireplace. Carpeted steps from the inner hallway lead down to the family room/office with steps to a ground level window and provides ample storage. The kitchen area is L shaped with a lovely recessed range, wood floors, sash window to the rear garden and a range of oak kitchen cabinets stretching the length of the single story extension with a door to the garden, tiled floor, butler sink and exposed beams. At the end of this room is a fully tiled ground floor shower room.
Stairs rise to the first floor with a south facing master bedroom with a wonderful large sash window, wooden floors and fitted cupboards. Bedroom two on the same floor can accommodate twin beds and has a fitted cupboard. A half spiral staircase leads to the top floor and the third bedroom with a large dormer window, fitted cupboard and a very impressive tiled en-suite with free standing slipper bath and more exposed beams.
A lovely well stocked walled courtyard garden with side access for bikes and garden furniture. The courtyard has some raised beds, a wooden shed and some mature plantings.
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.
