The shared hallway leads to only three apartments and a ground floor shared storage room, with light and power, where paddle boards, kayaks and bikes can easily be stored. The apartments have right of way to access the rear of the property and storage room through the large double gates to the left of the main front door and courtyard. It is also worth noting during the summer fete period the apartment benefits from bunting at eye height out of the window and during the Christmas Period a magical carpet of fairy lights!
The entrance door at high street level leads to a shared hallway and covered storage area. The original turned wooden staircase leads to the first floor. The front door opens onto a light and airy hallway with a decorative central archway and a south facing sash window at one end that looks onto the cobbles. The hallway has ample fitted storage.
The property has many features of the period including original picture rails, high ceilings, fireplaces and refurbished sash windows. The elegant living room benefits from an open fireplace with marble insert and wood surround and mantle. A wide arch leads through to the dining room where there is a home working space. The room could easily become a second bedroom and has been used as such by the current owner. The west facing large sash windows in the living and dining room give attractive views of the bustling high street.
The kitchen has been carefully thought through to maximise storage, with granite work surfaces and integrated appliances including fridge/freezer, extraction unit, and Neff induction hob, microwave and Hide and Slide oven, and space for washing machine and dishwasher.
The sunny main bedroom has a south facing sash window with wooden plantation shutters, fitted wardrobes and a feature fireplace. The bathroom is spacious with a shower above the bath, pedestal wash hand basin, heated towel rail and storage cupboard. A step-down leads to the WC with a view of the river from a small window.

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.
