The house is positioned on Pilley Hill within a short walk of an ancient pub, a community shop and well renowned primary school. Set nicely back from the village road, the house enjoys pleasant views and ample parking. Pilley is a highly sought after village which remains unspoilt by extensive development yet benefits from local facilities.
The village is within the New Forest National Park and as a result ponies are often seen grazing on the village green and verges. Pilley is only 2 miles from Lymington where there are a wider range of facilities, including an excellent range of cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as independent boutiques. Extensive sailing facilities, including two deep water marinas, are located in Lymington with access to sailing on The Solent. Pilley has direct access to the forest with extensive walks, riding opportunities and cycling.
Communications are excellent with the M27 at Southampton just 17 miles to the north and rail services to London Waterloo from Lymington Station, via Brockenhurst taking about two hours.
The impressive approach is via a long gravel driveway which sweeps up to the property and leads to the detached double garage building. There is ample parking for vehicles and boats.
The attractive pond forms part of the boundary with the neighbouring property and both residences have constructed viewing areas around this lovely restful area of the garden.
A spacious hallway provides a welcoming reception for guests with doors to all principal rooms and staircase leads to the first floor. This is a unique property as it serves as a multi generational home to the current owners.
The ground floor comprises of two kitchens, one large modern kitchen/diner with double doors leading to the front garden and a more traditional kitchen with wooden cupboards and utility area and access to the cloakroom.
The sitting room has an attractive brick fireplace and doors through to the conservatory overlooking the stunning grounds. The double bedroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
A turning staircase leads to the spacious and light first floor landing. The main bedroom is at the front of the house enjoying lovely views and is bright and sunny. It benefits from a modern en-suite bathroom with shower over.
There are a further three double bedrooms and a single bedroom which is currently being used as a home office. These bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. There is an impressive vaulted ceiling living room with Juliette balconies and views from every window. This acts as the second living room but could easily be converted into a generous main bedroom.

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.
