The cottage sits on the corner of Vinney Road and All Saints Road in a picturesque setting in front of the church. The property is walking distance from the High Street where there is an array of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. There is a branch line railway station as well as the famous cobbles to the Town Quay, the deep water marinas and yacht clubs for the sailing enthusiasts and the ferry terminal to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
Lymington is a world renowned centre for sailing and watersports and the sea water swimming baths are extremely popular. The town is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. To the north, are the New Forest villages of Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27, which links to the M3 giving access to London. The rail branch line link to Brockenhurst main line Station (approx. 5.5 miles) gives direct access to London Waterloo in approx. 90 minutes.
A feature of note is the stunning walled garden to the side of the house with Italian influence having several separate seating areas tucked away under a rose covered pergola, in one case, or hidden within the beautiful part curving brick walls. There are shaped gateways and stone pathways, an ornamental pond and areas of lawn.
Designed to capture the suns rays at all times of day. Hidden behind the cottage is another planting area used at present for potted olive trees. There is a pretty stone terrace garden to the front of the cottage and a gravel driveway in front of the detached barn-style car port and enclosed workshop. High wooden entrance gates give the whole area security and privacy.
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.
