The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy reach of the property. Also within walking distance are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort, as well as an open-air seawater bath that was built in 1833. Lymington has a number of independent shops including some designer boutiques and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. On Saturday, a market is held in the High Street, the origins of which probably date back to the 13th century. 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 also a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approx. 5.5 miles) which gives direct access to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes.
The house is approached via a private drive providing off road parking for one car. To the rear of the house is a low maintenance pathed garden with fence borders which provides the perfect space for entertaining or barbecues. There is a gate which provides access on to Campion Way, which allows for bicycles / kayaks to be brought in to the garden.
The house is a superb example of elegant styling and extremely well thought out use of space which combine to provide peaceful and practical accommodation over two floors. The interior has been completely updated in recent years with both the kitchen and bathroom newly installed to a high standard. The front door opens to the fabulous open plan kitchen/breakfast room with stairs leading to the first floor. The sitting room has double doors opening on to the south facing garden and eye catching porcelain floors which run through the entire ground floor. The kitchen itself is open plan to the lounge with beautifully fitted with a window overlooking the front, a range of high gloss cupboard units, integral twin oven, electric hob, integrated fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher as well as a breakfast dining area.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has excellent storage space with a large built in cupboard while the second double bedroom overlooks the garden. There is a beautifully finished bathroom suite which features a bath with shower over.
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.
