Outside, the property is approached through Conference Place via a brick paviour drive leading to the front door and double garage which has an electrically operated up-and-over door having power and light and housing the water softener. From the drive, there is a access on both sides leading to the walled rear garden which is of an excellent size and is laid mainly to lawn having a brick paviour patio adjacent to the sitting room. There is a timber summerhouse and flowerbeds being stocked with a variety of small shrubs and plants and there is also a long self-rewinding hose unit.
The covered entrance porch with UPVC front door leads into the spacious hallway with a useful under stairs storage cupboard and cloakroom. The triple aspect sitting room enjoys a feature bay window and sliding patio doors to the garden and there is a fitted gas log effect fire. An archway then gives access through to the dining area with the oak floor continuing through. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the rear garden with doors opening out onto the west facing patio. The kitchen is fitted with a modern range of units incorporating an inset twin bowl sink, integrated electric oven and five ring gas hob with extractor above and the wall mounted gas fired boiler provides domestic hot water and central heating. There is access through to the utility area having a range of units including a sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The ground floor study also has doors to the garden.
From the hall, the staircase leads up to the landing having an access hatchway to the roof space as well as a shelved airing cupboard housing the lagged hot water tank and the double inlet/outlet shower pump (for two simultaneous shower operation). There are four bedrooms; the master bedroom is dual aspect having French doors to the south facing balcony and a range of freestanding wardrobes as well as an en suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three are double rooms and bedroom four is a good sized single. The family bathroom is fitted with a modern suite comprising a bath with shower fitment, WC and vanity unit.
The house is positioned at the very end of a no through road and is therefore largely untroubled by passing traffic. Situated in the sought after southern fringes of Lymington the house is ideally positioned for numerous characterful pubs and the town’s renowned sailing clubs. There are also open countryside and attractive rural lanes nearby. Woodside Park is just around the corner and the varied shops, cafes and restaurants of Lymington’s historic Georgian High Street is just over three quarters of a mile to the north.
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.
