The property is situated in the beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington and is within a short walking distance of its cosmopolitan shops and picturesque harbour. Also within easy reach are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs, for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort. Lymington is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park and 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 90 minutes.
The property is set well back in the plot and is approached via a gated driveway with ample space for parking several cars and mature hedging to the front. The rear garden is south facing and ideal for alfresco entertaining. Privacy is afforded by mature hedging and panelled fencing.

The property has been extended to create an impressive open plan bespoke kitchen/dining area, with glass lantern, overlooking the garden. Bi fold doors lead out to the sunny patio which is the perfect entertainment area. This room really is the hub of the house. The kitchen offers a plentiful range of shaker style base and eye level units with solid oak worktops, large central island/breakfast bar and a wealth of integrated appliances including Fischer & Paykel range cooker and extractor hood, dishwasher and wine fridge. There is an area off the kitchen with further storage, utility space and door to garden. There is a further reception room which could be used as a study or fourth bedroom. The modern cloakroom with wc and hand basin completes the ground floor accommodation.
From the reception hall, a staircase leads to the first floor landing with doors to three double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is a light and airy room offering a feature roll top bath and ample fitted wardrobes. Both bedrooms two and three are doubles and share the modern family bathroom comprising a bath with shower over, vanity unit and wc.
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.
