The house is approached through a pedestrian gate and a mature hedge that shelters the house from the road. There is a small front garden and the path leads to the front door under a tiled canopy porch. The path continues to a rear fenced garden that is laid to lawn and has a pedestrian gate to the property’s private parking space which is accessed via Queen Elizabeth Avenue.
Western Road forms part of an attractive and increasingly popular enclave of peaceful residential roads that are conveniently positioned for both Waitrose and the High Street which offers a range of boutiques and larger shops as well as historic pubs, restaurants and cafes. Lymington is a thriving market town with an abundance of green space and world renowned sailing opportunities from the deep water marinas and yacht clubs. The town is surrounded by the open spaces of The New Forest which provides almost limitless walks and cycle rides. There is a railway station in the town offering services to London Waterloo via Brockenhurst and a ferry to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
The house is a charming late Victorian red brick property with mellow brick detail to the elevations, large windows and high ceilings. The front door opens to a hall with coat cupboard. To the front of the house there is a generous sitting room with a square bay window and feature electric fireplace with wooden surround. The large kitchen/dining room provides the perfect space for relaxing and entertaining with plenty of space for a large dining table and a modern kitchen with integrated appliances. Beyond the kitchen is a rear hall with door to the rear garden and leads to a cloakroom and separate bathroom comprising panelled bath with shower over and wash hand basin.
Upstairs the landing has two windows to the side aspect and leads to the main bedroom situated to the front of the house and has a built in wardrobe and feature fireplace as well as a square bay window. There is a further cupboard off the landing and the possibility exists to incorporate a further staircase here to create more living accommodation in the roof space (subject to the necessary consents). Also accessed from the landing is a large, recently finished bathroom with bath and shower over as well as a wc and wash hand basin. The second double bedroom lies to the rear of the house and enjoys a view of the garden.
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.
