Park Road is a quiet tree lined road close to the centre of Lymington. The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington, with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour, is within easy reach of the property. Also 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.
The established front garden provides an easy to maintain area of mature specimen shrubs set on a gravel base and enclosed by an ornate wall. A tarmac driveway leads to the side of the bungalow and the detached garage with light and power. Gated side access leads to the south facing rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn and has a good sized slab patio adjacent to the conservatory. The whole is is well screened by mature hedges and wooden panel fencing.
A double glazed front door leads into a reception hall where a door immediately on your right provides access to a compact sitting room with an attractive red brick surround open fireplace and double aspect windows providing plenty of light into the room. Back into the hallway further doors lead to two bedrooms, a shower room and the dining room. The bedrooms are of a similar size with bedroom one having a front aspect window providing a pleasant view over the front garden. Bedroom two has a built-in wardrobe and a rear aspect window looking out to the conservatory and south facing rear garden. The modern shower room with tiled walls comprises a white suite with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and wc. The dining room has a side aspect east facing window and a feature fireplace. A door leads into a small kitchen which enjoys a delightful outlook over the sunny garden from the kitchen sink. Whilst the kitchen needs updating it is currently fully functional with a range of storage cupboards and work surfaces with tiled splashbacks. A double glazed door opens into the conservatory, which again provides pleasant views over the garden. Buyers should be aware that the polycarbonate roof on the conservatory has been damaged by hailstones and requires replacement.
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.
