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.
On entering the property there is a light and airy hallway leading to all main rooms. The living room is a generous size with a feature fireplace providing a focal point to the room and double doors lead to the spacious conservatory which enjoys views of the garden. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of units and the breakfast bar area is perfect for casual dining. There is space for a range cooker, fridge/freezer and washing machine. Double doors lead through to the dual aspect dining room which benefits from access to the patio area.
The spacious nature of the master bedroom mirrors the general feeling of this property and is further complimented by an en-suite shower room. The further three bedrooms are all a generous size with bedroom two enjoying the use of the Jack & Jill family bathroom. There is a separate study which could alternatively be used as bedroom five.
Highly efficient house fitted with solar panels resulting in reduced running costs.
The bungalow enjoys a generous plot with parking for two cars at the front of the property. There is a pretty lawned area to the front with spring flowers adding a splash of colour. The rear garden is fully fenced and sides onto a woodland area providing privacy, security and tranquility. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a large patio ideal for entertaining and a hot tub for relaxing. There is a large shed providing ample storage. A large space to the side of the property provides potential for a garage subject to the necessary planning permission or a useful area for housing boats/campers etc.
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.
