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. A market is held in the High Street on Saturdays, the origins of which are thought to date back to the 13th centuary. 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 delightful landscaped south west facing walled garden is approached from the kitchen/breakfast room. By-fold doors lead onto a paved entertaining area perfect for alfresco dining. Lawned grounds lead to twin steps that climb to the imaginatively designed raised decking area garden area which has been created for easy maintenance and to tantalise the senses. There is a brick garden store room, mature plantings, side access via a locked gate and a garage across the road with automated parking system.
On entering the property, the principal reception room has a luxurious, inviting feeling. It has a wealth of original features including bespoke panelling, a contemporary fire, original wide bay window, sash windows, wooden shutters and wooden flooring. The open plan sitting room flow through to a spacious kitchen diner with a large central island. The kitchen has been newly extended and has large by-fold doors with tantalising views onto the landscaped garden. The extension has been cleverly planned, with extensive glass flooding the rooms with light and warm sunshine. The impressive kitchen has striking wooden floors, a large AGA cooker and bespoke kitchen units with fitted fridge/freezer and offering ample storage. An inner hallway leads to the ground floor cloakroom. Stairs descend to the spacious cellar area, an idea utility space with ample storage.
On the first floor is an impressive office area with glass ceiling and garden views. The main double bedroom, with original twin feature fireplaces and large bay window offering wonderful views to the East where the river and mast tops can be seen. This is a beautiful light and airy room with double fitted wardrobes. Across the landing is the contemporary bathroom suite with his and hers sink, luxury walk in shower plus free standing bath.
On the same floor is the useful utility room with plumbing for washer and dryer. Stairs continue to the second floor where there are two good size double bedrooms, one with walk in wardrobe, the other with garden views. The rooms are separated by a generous sized family shower room with far reaching views plus a convenient separate cloakroom.
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.
