The property is located within the National Park between two beautiful commons on the corner of a rural lane near the village of Pennington. The famous Georgian market town of Lymington with its river, marinas and yacht clubs is less than two miles away. The town offers an excellent range of schooling, both state and private, catering for all ages. There is a useful branch line connection which links with the neighbouring village of Brockenhurst (situated approximately 5.5 miles to the north) that in turn provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo, with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
This quintessential forest cottage is presented in immaculate condition and has a large welcoming reception hallway from which the staircase leads to the first floor accommodation. Glazed double doors lead to the large kitchen/dining room which incorporates a conservatory area overlooking the pretty cottage gardens and allowing ample room for dining. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with ample wooden storage units and a large central island and breakfast bar. There is room for a range of appliances such as the range style cooker and an american style fridge/freezer. There is an integrated dishwasher. A separate utility room and boot area has further storage and plumbing for the washing machine and tumble dryer and is where the Worcester Bosch gas boiler is located to one wall. There is a separate cloakroom and a door to the rear garden. From the hallway a door leads into the beautifully appointed sitting room, flooded with light from three windows, two of which flank the open fireplace. There are glazed double doors leading to the garden. Finally, from the hallway, a door leads to the generous ground floor master bedroom suite with ample fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with wc, hand basin and heated towel rail.
The first floor landing is generous with a large window overlooking the garden and doors lead to three double bedroom, two having fitted wardrobe cupboards. All are served by the large family bathroom having a shower over the bath with glass screen, wc and basin, heated towel rail and picture window.
The approach from the lane is through a wooden five bar gate onto a large gravel driveway allowing parking provision for many vehicles. There is access to the side of the cottage and some wooden sheds and stores. The gardens are beautifully kept with a range of herbaceous borders and mature shrubs surrounding the house. There is a large stone terrace immediately to the rear of the cottage and accessed from both the sitting room and conservatory/dining area. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature boundaries giving a high degree of privacy. An ornamental pond is an attractive focal point and there is a further garden shed. A second patio can be accessed from another corner of the garden allowing a further area for al fresco dining.
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.
