This exceptional apartment has an unrivalled location and is the highest residential property in Lymington, surpassed only by the church spire just to the east. As one would expect, the views from the apartment and roof terrace (of which it has exclusive use) are breath-taking which when combined with its highly convenient location on Lymington High street provide both a sense of space and proximity to amenities that are difficult to match.
Lymington is a thriving market town ideally positioned between the coast and the open spaces of the New Forest. There are excellent sailing facilities in the town as well as a range of chain and independent stores alongside some excellent restaurants and coffee shops. Communications are excellent and there is a railway station connecting to Brockenhurst from which there are regular services to London Waterloo.
Lymington House is delightful Grade II Listed building and an iconic part of Lymington High Street. The building is believed to date from the early 1800s and retains many attractive features of the period. The apartment which occupies the entirety of the third floor and is nicely presented but would benefit from minor improvements and requires carpeting throughout.
The hall provides access to all rooms and there is a particularly attractive sitting & dining room which occupies the entire front of the building including its expansive bow window. From here there are stunning sea views across the south side of Lymington which stretch from the Needles in the west to the Solent in the east. There is a large double bedroom with a feature fireplace and views across the rear of the property to the New Forest National Park beyond. There is a further bedroom and main bathroom as well as a separate kitchen with serving hatch to the sitting / dining room.
Just outside the front door to the apartment is a staircase to the roof terrace the exclusive use of which is enjoyed by the apartment. This impressive roof terrace provides the perfect place from which to enjoy the outstanding 360 degree views. There is also a private parking space to the rear of the property which can be accessed from the ground floor.

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.
