The property sits on an attractive residential road on the western fringes of the beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour. Less than a mile away are Waitrose Supermarket and Marks & Spencer with two large deep water marinas and the open air salt water baths aproximately one mile beyond. 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 property is approached via a gravel driveway providing parking for several cars. There is a single garage with power. Gated side access leads to the attractive rear garden which benefits from an outbuilding with heating and power currently used as a games/hobby room, ideal for family living.
On entering the property you are welcomed into an impressive hallway with double height ceiling and glass balustrades on the staircase allowing all the natural light to flow through. The hallways opens into the large modern open plan kitchen/diner ideal for family living, with a breakfast bar area, space for a dining table and an area for relaxing. The bi folds doors offer a wonderful outlook to the rear garden as well as a seamless flow of outdoor/indoor entertaining. A separate utility room offers generous storage as well as space and plumbing for a washing machine.
The hallway leads through to the separate living room at front of the property which enjoys the warmth of a contemporary wood burning stove which is nestled in the corner of the room. The property benefits from two double bedrooms on the ground floor as well as a contemporary family bathroom.
On the first floor you are greeted by a spacious and light landing. The principal bedroom is of generous proportions and benefits from a wonderful ensuite bathroom with double sinks and a sumptuous bath perfect for relaxing on those chilly winter evenings. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate walk in shower.
The property has been finished to exacting standards and is a wonderful family home.
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.
