The property is located in the heart of the village where there is a general store with Post Office and is complimented by a selection of other shops, pubs and an extensive leisure centre while schools for all age groups are all within walking distance.
Approximately 1½ miles west is the picturesque Georgian market town of Lymington which is famed for its attractive High Street, river, marinas and yacht clubs. The town offers an excellent range of schooling, both state and private, catering for all ages.
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 an efficient mainline railway station (London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) and its own tertiary college.
This characterful period house has recently been redecorated and benefits from an especially large and attractive garden. On the ground floor the front door opens to a hall with access to a downstairs shower room and a family room which has French windows onto the garden.
There is an inner hall with stairs rising to the first floor and a conservatory overlooking the garden. Also on the ground floor is a generous sitting room with chimney breast and built in cupboards as well as a quarry tiled floor.
Beyond the sitting room is the kitchen / dining room which contains a fitted kitchen and range of built in cupboards as well as the original front door. There is a back door to the side of the house which provides access to the separate outbuilding which currently serves as a utility room with sink and space & plumbing for a washing machine.
Upstairs, the first floor has four very well proportioned bedrooms, all of which have built in wardrobes. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there is also a separate family bathroom.
From the central landing, a further staircase rises to the second floor where there is a generous landing and two very spacious loft rooms that are fully decorated and centrally heated.
The gardens are a distinct feature of the property. There is an off road parking space to the right of the house behind which are double gates opening onto the garden and providing access to the two double garages.
The gardens are level and predominantly laid to lawn with a central circular terrace, opening off the conservatory, composed of paving and shingle. There are also two further timber sheds and a summer house.
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.
