Located in the village of Pennington, the area benefits from a general store with post office, a selection of other shops including a Tesco Metro, a pub and an extensive leisure centre all within walking distance. Local schools are nearby, including the highly regarded Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary School. Approximately 1.5 miles to the 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 approx 6 miles to the North) that in turn has a mainline railway station to London Waterloo.
The gravel parking to the front of the premises provided parking of numerous vehicles. The rear garden has been specifically designed for children with fitted outdoor play equipment and a covered play area for all year round use. The boundaries are secure with high mature plantings and fencing providing a high degree of privacy.
There are two main access areas to the front of the property, currently a parents main entrance area with finger print access which opens to an inner hallway and a staff access area which opens in to another open hallway. The first reception area has a cloakroom and leads through to the main learning room with a kitchenette and views across the playground. There is an inner day room off here which runs parallel with the covered outdoor play area. The staff entrance area opens in to a reading room and filters round to a dining area and commercial kitchen, Fire doors lead through to another cloakroom area via a hallway overlooking the playground, to a utility room, child’s rest room and another play room. Stairs lead from the staff entrance area to the first floor which has three large rooms, currently used as an office and store rooms with an additional bathroom. The current configuration would allow for a three bedroom family home with two large reception rooms, kitchen and utility. However, the uniqueness of the layout allows for numerous options allowing a new owner to bespoke a very spacious family home to their own requirements.
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.
