Perfectly positioned at the top of the famous cobbles and just above the famed Lymington river being 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.
This two bedroom apartment has it all; central location, high ceilings, large refurbished sash windows, well presented throughout with river and harbour views and lots of light! There is an open plan design to the living areas with the generous kitchen/breakfast room opening through to the delightful sitting room where there is an ornate cast iron original fireplace and fitted shutters to the large sash window, fitted shelves and a door leading to bedroom two. There is a small inner hallway to bedroom one and the bathroom off the kitchen. The apartment benefits from a large spacious attic. (The owner has initial architect plans for a further bedroom with ensuite). In addition, there is a generous storage room for paddle boards, sailing gear or bikes allowing you the luxury of a quick skip over the cobbles to launch from the famous quay, or to pass the Kings Head on the walk to your daily open water swim in the nearby salt water baths. Early viewing is highly recommended EPR: N/A
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!
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.
