The house is a very substantial property with well proportioned rooms, high ceilings and a southerly aspect with the principle rooms flooded with light and overlooking the garden. The front door opens to a generous entrance porch with a further door into the hall where stairs rise to the first floor and doors open to the kitchen and living room.
The living room is a particularly impressive space with large windows and glazed door opening onto the garden. The room serves as both sitting room and dining room and contains a chimney breast and fireplace. The house was originally designed to have part of this room as a ground floor bedroom or study and there remains the possibility to reinstate a door leading from this area to the downstairs bathroom.
From the sitting room is a door to the kitchen which features the original cabinets and formica work surface as well as a built in contemporary double oven and electric hob. There is a rear hall accessed from the kitchen which provides further storage and has a back door to outside. Also on the ground floor is a w.c. which is accessed from the hall.
Upstairs there is a central landing with loft hatch leading to a boarded loft. There are two very generous double bedrooms both of which have glazed doors opening onto a balcony which runs the length of the house. There is also a further single bedroom and a family bathroom.
The property has been well maintained over the years and remains a very comfortable home however there is significant scope to further enhance and, subject to the necessary consents, extend.
The house is approached over a tarmac drive leading to a parking area in front of the detached garage. The house sits centrally in its south facing gardens which provide a distinct sense of space around the house. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with several mature beds to the front of the house and at the borders. Mature shrubs and trees have been carefully planted to provide both an attractive backdrop and privacy from neighbours. To the western side of the garden is a shed and timber framed greenhouse. The gardens and grounds total 0.3 acres.
All mains services are connected.

Positioned in the heart of Lymington and close to all shops and restaurants, yet tucked away off the south side of the High Street, this charming detached house occupies a substantial yet secluded spot. Lymington has a weekly Saturday market and a wide range of independent shops and national chains along with excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants. The town offers exceptional sailing with two deep water marinas and is also very well connected with rail services to London Waterloo in under 2 hours from nearby Lymington Station via Brockenhurst. The New Forest is also on the doorstep which provides spectacular scenery, rides and walks.
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.
