This stunning property is set in a most sought after location to the south of the High Street and within minutes of the Marinas and Sailing Clubs. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding 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.
Upon entering the property there is an immediate sense of space and light from the impressive vaulted, reception hallway and with underfloor heating running throughout the house, a warm and welcoming home has been created. The rear elevation is a wall of glass which overlooks and opens to the lake fronting side of the garden. The sitting room has dual aspect windows to both front and rear and the size allows for two defined seating areas. Doors open to a large garden room which has glazing to three sides which allows for year round enjoyment of the garden.
The kitchen/dining room echoes the generous sizes of the other ground floor rooms and is well arranged with the dining area allowing for a large table. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with tasteful units and the general size is ideal for entertaining. The kitchen is further complemented with a utility room with cloakroom off and a useful boot room also leads to outside from the rear of the kitchen.
To the first floor the master bedroom overlooks the lake and has a range of fitted furniture and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a guest suite which enjoys private use of its en-suite. The remaining double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. As can be seen from the photographs the setting of this house is quite exceptional and we feel this home may prove ideal for buyers wanting a centrally positioned house with a quiet and very private positioning.
There is a gated driveway which leads from a high brick retaining wall. A block paved driveway leads to the double detached garage which has power and light and a useful mezzanine level. The landscaped gardens wrap around the house form a beautiful leafy backdrop to the house.The star of the show with the property is undoubtedly the waterside aspect of the lake. The lake is managed so does not present a flooding risk and there in a central island which can be reached by boat. The tranquillity afforded from a waterside home is undeniably wonderful, but to have such an idyllic setting so close to a Town centre makes this home quite special. It truly is one of Lymington’s hidden treasures.
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.
