Off road parking for potentially two cars and a well maintained lawned garden with various flower and shrub plantings with a low retaining wall. Access via the side of the house leads to a secluded, pretty walled courtyard garden with ample space for alfresco dining and outside storage.
This lovely cottage is extremely conveniently located just off the High Street, with a private courtyard garden. All the amenities of the Georgian market town, including doctor’s surgery and chemist, library, church and community centre are close by. The beautiful town of Lymington, with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour, has two large deep water marinas and yachting and sailing clubs, for which the town has gained it’s status as a world renowned sailing resort. There is also an open-air seawater bath, built in 1833 within walking distance. Lymington also has a number of renowned restaurants and 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 are the New Forest villages of Brockenhurst and 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.
Hallway leads to the front reception room with lovely aspect over looking the front lawned garden and a centrally positioned open fire place. The room flows around to a separate dining room. The kitchen, which requires modernising, is located off the dining room and over looks the courtyard garden with a range of fitted cupboards, space for fridge freezer and cooker. There is also a small cloakroom/utility room with a side door to the outside.
The stairs rise to the first floor landing with two double bedrooms with aspects over the front and rear respectively. The family bathroom suite which again requires modernising completes the accommodation. The loft is fully boarded and is a particularly big space, ideal for converting subject to the normal planning requirements.
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.
