The Georgian market town of Lymington offers cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour as well as two deep water marinas and outstanding sailing facilities. The town is surrounded by the natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. 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 a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
The pretty rear courtyard is a lovely space for alfresco dining with an area for planting, high wall boundary and a gate through to the parking area with a single garage which in addition offers parking in front of the single up and over door.
The front door opens in to a hallway with cloakroom, stairs to first floor and door through to the dining room. The old fireplace is no longer in use here but does back on to the fireplace in the lounge which is fully working with a gas fire under a wooden mantel and brick surround. The lounge has double aspect windows, alcove shelving and double doors through to the courtyard. The kitchen also has a double aspect with views over the courtyard and a range of fitted cupboards and worktop surfaces, space for fridge freezer, plumbing for a washing machine, wall mounted gas boiler, oven, 4 ring gas hob and fitted extractor.
Stairs rise to the first floor landing with fitted double cupboards. The spacious master bedroom with triple aspect windows and fitted cupboards. Bedroom two is also a very spacious double room with a fitted cupboard. Bedroom three is a medium sized room with courtyard views. The modern bathroom with double size walk in shower and contemporary finish completes the accommodation.
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.
