The access is a step back in time down the small brick alleyway which leads to the small courtyard and access to 2 Villa Terrace, Quay Street. French doors open in to a wonderful ground floor lounge area with exposed brick, wooden sash window, contemporary upright radiator and inset spot lights. There is a boarded up doorway which would lead through to the front room, now an Art studio fronting the cobbles. Stairs rise to the first floor landing with wood paneled walls and on to the dining room with a hard wood sash window over looking the busy street below and an impressive Victorian open fireplace with wooden mantle. Opposite here is a cloak room and a good sized fitted kitchen. There is a range of fitted cupboards and work tops with ample storage space, integrated slim line dish washer, plumbing for a washing machine, fitted electric oven, hob and extractor, oak shelf which doubles as breakfast bar and a rear courtyard aspect. Stairs now rise to the second floor with a clever storage area and access to the two double bedrooms, both with fitted showers, vanity unit, fitted wardrobe unit and in bedroom two a cupboard housing the modern Worcester gas boiler. Bedroom one has the benefit of a loft access for additional storage and a view over the cobbles.
Perfectly positioned on the famous cobbles, within moments of the quay and waterfront cafes, restaurants, train station and only a short walk from the salt water baths, the deep water Marinas and Sailing Clubs and stunning coastal walks. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers extensive restaurants and boutiques 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 from the nearby Lymington station 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 front door is located to the rear of the property and is located off the cobbles down the short ally to the right of the building. There is a small section of courtyard which can be used for alfresco dining or simply a morning coffee or sun downer.
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.
