There is a large turning and parking area to the front of the house as well as a pleasant area of lawn garden. Adjoining the house is a single garage with store room and covered access which could, subject to the necessary consents, be adapted to provide additional accommodation.
The gardens lie predominantly to the rear of the house and are extremely generous extending to approximately 0.4 acres in total. The rear gardens are level and mostly laid to lawn with mature planting at the boundaries.
The house is approached over a long private drivate drive which leads to a turning and parking area adjacent to the house and garage. While the house has been well cared for, it is now in need of updating and there is excellent potential to improve or extend the living accommodation subject to the necessary consents. Given the size of the gardens there may even be development potential for an additional property. Again, this would of course be subject to planning permission.
There is a large enclosed glazed porch which leads to the front door. The entrance hall has attractive parquet flooring with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the sitting room and kitchen / breakfast room.
The sitting room also has its original parquet flooring as well as a fire place and large glazed doors opening onto the garden. The kitchen / breakfast room also overlooks the garden and has a range of fitted units as well as room for a breakfast table and a back door to the garden. Reached via the kitchen is the dining room which overlooks the front garden.
Upstairs there is a central landing which provides access to the four double bedrooms all of which enjoy delightful views either over the garden or open fields to the front of the property. Three of the bedrooms have extensive built in wardrobes and there is also a family bathroom and separate wc.
This delightfully positioned house sits at the end of a private drive facing unspoilt open countryside off a charming tree-lined road on the highly sought after south side of Lymington. The house perfectly combines a peaceful rural outlook with the convenience of proximity to the centre of Lymington as well as its numerous sailing and recreational facilities.
The New Forest lies just to the north with unrivalled open spaces providing superb walking, riding and cycling. Lymington’s attractive coastline lies just to the south with glorious walks along the sea wall.
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.
