North Greenlands is a popular, tree-lined no through road that lies within easy reach of Pennington’s shops and is only three quarters of a mile from Lymington High Street with its range of independent and national shops; pubs and restaurants. Lymington is famous for its sailing facilities and remains extremely popular due to the proximity of the coast and forest while also having excellent schooling and transport links. There is a useful branch line rail connection that links with the neighbouring village of Brockenhurst (situated approximately 6 miles to the north) that in turn has a mainline railway station (London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) and its own tertiary college.
Believed to date from the 1920s this charming detached chalet bungalow is nicely set back from the road with ample parking and turning space on its large gravel drive. The property benefits from numerous character features including original windows to the front elevation as well as the original fire place in the dining room. The accommodation is beautifully presented with wooden floors extending through the majority of the ground floor as well as a wealth of recently fitted fixtures and fittings including the kitchen and numerous built in wardrobes in the bedrooms. The front door opens to a central hall with a double bedroom on the right and the dining room on the left. Also on the ground floor is an impressive and spacious sitting room with an open fireplace and glazed doors opening to the garden room to the rear of the house. There is a very well finished kitchen / breakfast room that has integrated appliances and room for a dining table and overlooks the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room and a very light and appealing garden room that is fully glazed with a tiled roof making it perfect for use all year round and a room from which one can fully take in the delightful garden.
Upstairs there are three further bedrooms. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and a beautifully presented and fully tiled en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a fully tiled family bathroom featuring a bath with shower over.
The house is approached over a wide gravel drive providing space to turn and park several cars. There is a wide side access leading to the garden which is paved immediately to the rear of the building and the garden room providing a spacious area for barbecues, sun bathing and entertaining. The garden, which faces south west, has a distinctly private feel and therefore enjoys sun through the vast majority of the day. The garden is level and approximately 100 feet long, most of which is laid to lawn with mature planting and shrub borders. Close to the garden room, and on the site of a former garage, is a log cabin that has power and light connected and provides additional space perfect for a fitness room or home office.
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.
