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 front door leads to the enclose entrance porch with coat hanging space and into the spacious living room with picture window to the front aspect and where the stairs lead to the first floor landing. An oak wooden floor runs throughout the living and dining area. The adjacent kitchen has been beautifully appointed with a comprehensive range of storage units and wooden worktops with appliances to include the range style fan oven and hob, integrated fridge and freezer. This area is open to the dining area with room for further cupboards and where glazed doors lead to the large conservatory with brand new tiled floor which overlooks the rear garden with double doors to the outside. The new utility room is located off the conservatory and has been impressively designed with ample storage, cupboard housing the gas boiler, plumbing for washing machine, space for dryer, towel rail and a sink over looking the rear garden. From here there is a cloakroom with new white fittings and access through to the half garage providing excellent storage for bikes and other sports or garden requirements. In addition the current owner has added a new insulated loft above the garage providing further storage.
The first floor accommodation comprises three bedrooms, the master being a very good size with views to the front of the house, bedroom two and three both have rear garden views. The family bathroom has a contemporary white suite with shower over the bath. Finally, there is an airing cupboard and loft hatch to a part-boarded storage area.
There is ample off road parking to the front of the property, in front of the garage and under the carport. The driveway leads to the attached single garage. The rear garden offers a high degree of privacy with close boarded fencing and mature shrubs and also wraps around the side of the house. Through a wooden arch to one corner there is a storage and vegetable area. The whole is mainly laid to lawn with a side entrance gate.
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.
