The front door opens to a reception hallway which has access to a separate utility room, ground floor bedroom, drawing room and an open family kitchen dining room.
The kitchen, family dining room which is L shaped has bi fold doors opening onto the terrace and garden. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a range of integrated appliance including a American style fridge freezer, wine cooler and a Belfast kitchen sink, which is integrated on the spacious Granite surface top kitchen island. The family room is fitted with engineered oak floorboards throughout and has a fitted traditional log burner and ample space for a large sofa under a large sash window.
The drawing room has an impressive, vaulted ceiling with dual aspect sash windows and bi-fold doors which lead onto the terrace. The drawing room feels very light and spacious and would also make a perfect games room, snug or nursery.
The first floor has access to 4 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. The two bedrooms and family bathroom at the front aspect of the house enjoy outstanding views overlooking the lymington river and beyond.
On the second floor you have the master bedroom, which takes up the whole of the top floor. The bedroom has panoramic views of the lymington river, two separate cupboards providing ample storage and incorporates a dual aspect dressing room which leads onto a large open en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower.
Rivercroft sits within private grounds in a slightly elevated position a short walk across the causeway to Lymington High Street for an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, and facilities. Lymington Pier and Lymington Town stations are both within easy walking distance with half-hourly links to Brockenhurst (10 minutes) which offers a mainline service to London Waterloo (approximately 1 hour 45 minutes). The Isle of Wight and open Forest are easily accessible, and Junction 1, M27, is 12 miles to the north. Walhampton independent prep school is within walking distance. So, too, is Walhampton Golf Course, Walhampton Arms and The Ferryman inn.
Outside, you approach Rivercroft from a private shared gravel driveway off Undershore road, the property is located at the top end of the driveway on the left side. Within the boundary of Rivercroft there is plenty of ample parking, enough for up to 4 or 5 cars, also including an electric charging point. The lawned garden wraps around the front aspect on the south and west side of the house providing excellent river views with various plantings, mature trees, bushes and hedging. There is a hard standing which potentially could offer a base for a future garage where the large wooden storage shed is located. There is a patio and entertaining area leading from the kitchen dining room and drawing room ideal for alfresco dining and watching the sunset and evening rowers.
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.
