The house has well arranged accommodation with attractive living rooms overlooking the gardens and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The front door opens onto an attractive dining hall with French windows opening onto the terrace which overlooks the garden with views towards the river and countryside beyond. Also opening off the hall is a large sitting room with an arched feature fireplace and wood burning stove. The sitting room has wooden floors and also has French windows opening onto the terrace. The staircase leads off the hall up to the galleried landing. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and wc. Beyond the dining hall is a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, with an Aga and central island beyond which lies a large conservatory/ garden room with 180 degree views over the gardens and doors onto the terrace. There is also a utility room with sink, space for a washing machine and a back door. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and three further bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom as well as a hatch and ladder to a large boarded loft space. There is a separate garage building which has been loosely converted to provide a study and loft room with staircase access. A separate single garage remains within this building.
While Mill House occupies an extremely secluded position it remains very convenient for nearby facilities. There are local primary and secondary schools in Pennington as well as a convenience store just under a mile away. The Georgian market town of Lymington is two miles away and has two large marinas, as well as moorings on the Lymington River. Lymington also offers excellent shopping facilities including three supermarkets, a wide range of boutiques, and a large and popular charter market in the High Street every Saturday.
Situated in a delightful rural position outside the village of Pennington, Mill House is an exceptional riverside house with light, generous gardens in a private position. Set in an elevated position overlooking its gardens and the river, the house is approached over a long gravel drive leading to a large turning and parking area suitable for numerous cars or boats, adjacent to the house and garage block. Surrounding the house are formal gardens and paddock land which total approximately 1.6 acres and border the Avon Water river on the northern boundary. A large attractive deck sits immediately next to the river providing a further glorious area to eat and entertain. The gardens are gently sloping and mostly laid to lawn with mature plants and trees at the boundary. To the north east of the house and garage is a timber stable block which lies adjacent to an area of land that has previously been used as a pony paddock.
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.
