The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy reach of the property. Also within walking distance are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort, as well as an open-air seawater bath that was built in 1833. Lymington has a number of independent shops including some designer boutiques and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. On Saturday, a market is held in the High Street, the origins of which probably date back to the 13th century. 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 also a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approx. 5.5 miles) providing a half hourly services to London Waterloo with a journey time of 90 minutes.
A covered entrance leads to the reception hallway where the staircase with storage cupboard leads to the first floor and doors lead to the light and spacious living room with a large picture window to the front aspect as well as two windows to the south and glazed french doors to the rear west facing garden. The kitchen is adjacent and fitted with a range of excellent storage cupboards and display units with a door to the rear garden. Appliances include integral fridge and freezer and there is space for a dishwasher, gas oven and hob as well as plumbing for a washing machine. The dining room is utilised as a fourth bedroom having a cloakroom and shower room adjacent, which is also next to the ground floor double bedroom with a wide range of fitted furniture.
The first floor landing has fitted book shelves and doors to two double bedrooms both with eaves storage cupboards and one enjoying an en suite shower room.
A feature of note are the delightful grounds. There is a generous driveway leading to the garage. The mature front garden has a wide range of attractive shrubs and some specimen trees which provide excellent privacy. There is wide access with wooden gates to one side of the house and to the other is where the detached brick build garage is located. A further iron gate leads to the rear garden. Once again a most attractive garden, mainly laid to lawn with an array of interesting trees and shurbs, a vegetable area, wooden summer house and detached wooden workshop. There is a private gate to one corner giving quick access to the Christchurch Road and to the nearby leisure centre and Priestlands secondary school.
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.
