Stanley Road is a most sought after location to the south of the High Street and within minutes of the marinas and sailing clubs of the Georgian market town of Lymington. This cosmopolitan town also offers diverse shopping facilities, a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. 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 a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
The property offers an exciting opportunity to develop one of the last period houses in Lymington that requires modernising but still offers spacious accommodation and original period features. In addition to the accommodation which extends over three floors there is a large garden extending to both the side and rear which totals approximately 0.25 acres and allows for ample off street parking for cars and boats as well as having a large double garage and workshop. There is significant potential for a further residence to be built on the garden subject to the necessary consents.
There is an attractive covered porch opening in to the hallway with under stairs storage. The hall leads through to the dated kitchen area with a breakfast sun room, separate dining room over looking the rear garden with French doors leading to the patio and a spacious lounge to the front with a feature fireplace and large Edwardian windows to the front garden.
There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, with the primary bedroom having large period windows over looking the front. The two further bedrooms over look the rear garden with the family bathroom, now requiring updating. Stairs continue to the second floor with two further medium sized bedrooms, one with rear aspect and one with front aspect. There is currently a connecting door to the adjoining semi detached house (which is also available for sale separately) on the second floor.
There is a small front garden with a low retaining wall. To the side is a spacious parking area which leads to the lawned rear garden being approximately 100 ft in depth with various trees and mature plantings. This impressive space would make a particularly large garden for the existing house or could be separated as a distinct building plot subject to the necessary consents being granted.
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.
