Undershore Road is a particularly appealing location due to its proximity to both the Lymington River and the busy High Street that offers a Saturday market and a range of independent shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants. Ideally located for sailors, Lymington has an excellent range of sailing clubs, moorings and marinas all of which provide unrivalled access to the Solent. To the north lie the open spaces of the New Forest National park with miles of walks and cycle tracks. Lymington has a railway station offering services to London Waterloo via Brockenhurst.
The house has been well maintained by the current owners and is nicely presented. The location and orientation of the building has been cleverly designed to maximise the beautiful open views across its gardens towards the Lymington River. The accommodation is exceptionally open, bright and spacious. The front door opens onto a wide hallway which leads directly to the generous sitting room which features a wood burning stove and sliding doors to the garden. On the other side of the hallway is a large kitchen/breakfast room, with sliding doors at the front and access to the courtyard at the rear and doors to the adjoining family room, utility room and pantry. It has ample fitted units and space for free standing appliances such as range cooker and American fridge freezer. To the rear of the house, also with sliding doors to the garden, is a light and spacious garden room/dining room as well as a separate study and cloakroom/wc.
Upstairs there is a total of five bedrooms, all of which are generous doubles, with the main bedroom having an en-suite shower room and balcony. The guest bedroom has an en- suite shower room and there is also a family bathroom. The living/bedroom is a particularly generous room with sliding doors onto a west facing terrace, an en-suite shower room and kitchenette. This room has its own staircase leading to the ground floor where there is a door to the outside which provides a private and independent access. Both the bedroom and the ground floor family room link to the main house but can also be separated to provide a spacious and independent annexe for extended family or guests.
The house is in an elevated setting and is approached over a sweeping drive which leads to a large turning and parking area adjacent to both the house and the detached garage block which comprises a single garage and double car port. The gardens lie predominantly to the south of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging and planting at the boundaries affording good privacy. Steps lead to a patio with a timber covered garden structure. There is a vegetable plot to the rear of the garden which is screened from the house.

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.
