It is extremely rare to find a property that occupies such a secluded position that is also very close local shops and facilities. Set back behind the building line, the property is approached over a long winding drive that provides complete privacy and seclusion from the road and a distinct sense of space around the bungalow. As a result, there is no passing traffic and the property has the distinct sense of being in its own exculsive enclave. Nevertheless, the bungalow is highly convenient for the shops of Pennington which are approximately 100 yards away. Pennington offers several convenience stores, a Tesco Metro as well as takeaway restaurants. A wider range of shops and facilities, including independent boutiques, national stores, cafes and restaurants can be found on Lymington High Street which is itself less than a mile away. The northern fringes of Pennington open onto the New Forest National Park which provides excellent walks and cycle rides over unspoilt countryside. Lymington is renowned for its sailing facilities and there are swimming beaches at Milford on Sea and Barton on Sea to the west.
The bungalow occupies an exceptional position. Tucked away in a secluded spot behind other neighbouring properties the bungalow is oriented east / west and has been the subject of a complete renovation. The accommodation is well presented throughout. The front door opens to a wide hall which runs from the front of the building to the back and contains a large utilities cupboard which has plumbing and power for a washing machine / tumble drier. There is a generous and very well fitted kitchen / dining room that enjoys views across the garden and has doors opening onto the sitting room. The sitting room has a feature fire place and sliding doors opening onto the rear garden. The two double bedrooms can be accessed from the hall and both rooms have an open outlook onto the gardens and both feature built in wardrobes. There is a generous bathroom between the two bedrooms that features a wc, basin, bath and separate shower cubicle. The hall also has a glazed door onto the back garden and there is potential, subject to the necessary consents, to extend the bungalow to the rear to create a third bedroom. The sitting room can also be reached from a door to the hall.
The house is approached over a long tarmac drive which has double timber gates separating the drive from a large turning and parking area adjacent to the detached garage that has rendered elevations and a pitched tiled roof as well as an up and over door. The east facing front garden is level and mostly laid to lawn with a low hedge separating it from the parking area. The garden continues around both sides of the house to a pretty and enclosed rear garden which features a small pond and a paved terrace adjacent to the sliding doors to the sitting room, over which there is a retractable awning.
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.
