The property shares the access with Court Lodge and is separate to the main home. The cottage itself has a professionally landscaped patio area with electric awning and convenient potting shed, overlooking the lovely south facing communal gardens. It also benefits from an allocated parking space. Court Cottages offer independent living, yet are also part of the community that the main home enjoys, including social gatherings such as summer garden parties.
Court Close is one of the most sought after locations 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 front door opens into the entrance hall where there are useful storage cupboards and an airing cupboard. To the left, a door leads through to the bathroom which comprises a shower, wash basin and WC. Along the hall, a door leads through to the large sitting room which enjoys a feature gas fireplace as well as sliding doors which give access to the patio and communal gardens. Leading off from the sitting room is the kitchen which is fitted with a good range of floor and wall mounted units incorporating space for a cooker with extractor above, built-in fridge and freezer and space/plumbing for a washing machine. The wall-mounted gas-fired boiler provides domestic hot water and central heating. The bathrooms and kitchen have been completely renewed. The ground floor bedroom, historically used as a dining room, is a good-sized double room enjoying a range of fitted cupboards and a pleasant view across the communal gardens. From the hall, the staircase leads up to the landing which gives access to the first floor bedroom. This large room has a fitted wardrobe, under eaves storage and an en suite bathroom which comprises a shower, wash basin and WC.
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.
