Lymore Valley is an extremely peaceful enclave with very little passing traffic and a genuine rural feel. The leafy lane on which the property sits passes through open countryside while providing access to the nearby village of Keyhaven which is well known locally for its understated coastal charm, sailing clubs and wildlife. There is also an excellent pub. The larger village of Milford on Sea is also close by and offers a wider range of shops, bars and restaurants around its pretty village green as well as a glorious beach. Lymington lies just 3.5 miles away and caters for most daily requirements as well as having a weekly Saturday market and range of sailing clubs and marinas.
The property is approached through a five bar gate leading to a large gravel turning and parking area. There are extensive gardens extending to just under a quarter of an acre which are level and mostly laid to lawn with areas of mature shrub planting and several trees.
The surrounding area is remarkably peaceful with a rural charm unique to this highly sought after location.
This charming attached house has been carefully updated and extended by the current owners to provide comfortable and characterful accommodation in one of the area’s most charming rural settings.
The front door has a covered porch and opens to the hallway providing access to the downstairs rooms and staircase to the first floor. There is a impressive farmhouse style kitchen complete with fitted units, a central island and gas fired Aga. The kitchen opens onto a superb vaulted dining room with exposed beams and extensive glazing providing both ample light and a sense of space and character. This room leads through to a charming snug which could also be used as a fourth bedroom, complete with a corner fireplace with potential for a wood burning stove. The main sitting room has a modern wood burning stove and overlooks the garden with French windows providing delightful views and access to the outside. The downstairs shower room with WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all with attractive views along with a family bathroom.
Detached from the main house is a further building which provides well finished ancillary accommodation which is fully centrally heated with its own water, electricity and gas supplies. Believed to be a former double garage, this extremely adaptable and practical space currently provides a large ground floor room with extensive cupboard storage and a separate shower room and wc. There are stairs leading to a fully finished first floor room which runs the full length of the building.
Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
