The apartment sits in the heart of the beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour. 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.
Stairs rise from the courtyard parking area to the first floor covered porchway and door to apartment 5. The property sits on the first floor of the building and as a result offers light and bright accommodation ideally located above the High Street. The hallway opens in to the spacious south facing lounge with beautiful views across the rooftops to the Western Solent and the Isle of Wight. The room has a wonderful Art Deco bow window which allows the natural light to flood the room and provide a perfect vantage point to watch the comings and goings in the High Street below. The lounge has a large opening to the kitchen that provides communication between the two rooms. The kitchen has a range of fitted units and worktops with an integral oven and gas hob, space for washing machine and fridge freezer.
The hallway continues to the back of the apartment to the master bedroom with window to the side. The second bedroom, also a double, has a similar aspect with a characterful inner window in to the hall. The contemporary bathroom suite with shower over the bath completes the accommodation.
There is a private parking space in a courtyard to the rear of the property.
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.
