Superbly situated directly adjoining the open forest, where horses, donkeys and cattle have freedom to roam throughout this popular hamlet, as well as overlooking paddocks to the front aspect. Pilley is an extremely attractive and sought after village in the New Forest National Park, being equal distance between the nearby Georgian market town of Lymington which is famous for its internationally renowned sailing facilities and two deep water marinas and Brockenhurst, which offers an excellent local community of independent shops and restaurants, together with a mainline railway station which has a half hourly service to London Waterloo (approx. 90 minutes).
This beautifully presented property has been significantly remodelled and updated by the current owners and has been designed to take full advantage of the glorious southerly views over paddocks. The interior space is well arranged with a superb open plan kitchen/dining/family room. The kitchen is fitted with high gloss white base and wall units, space for a large range cooker and american style fridge freezer. There is an integrated dishwasher, wine fridge, microwave and a large island unit/breakfast bar. This area is certainly the main hub of the home with a relaxed seating area and bi-fold doors to the rear garden and onto a stunning tiled patio/entertaining area. There is also a separate utility room with stable door, plumbing for the washing machine, space for tumble dryer and additional cupboard storage. The pantry offers a useful addition to the kitchen and there is also a play room/study. The delightful drawing room with large picture windows and views of the garden has a log burning stove and original parquet flooring.
The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with underfloor heating and there are three further good sized bedrooms. The spacious family bathroom with a white suite comprising bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc completes the accommodation.
The property is approached via a cattle grid and has ample parking to the front as well as a single garage with power. To the rear of the property there is a lovely large south facing patio area, ideal for outdoor entertaining. A post and rail fence to the rear boundary allows views over the paddock beyond. There is a summer house, greenhouse, shed and a recently completed home office with electric heating and power.
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.
