The living room is a spacious and inviting retreat, featuring a cozy fireplace recess with a fitted wood-burning stove set on ceramic tiles. The room exudes character with its oak flooring, inset downlighters, and a double-glazed glass roof canopy that floods the space with natural light. Double doors open to a rear terrace, seamlessly connecting indoor and outdoor living.
Adjacent, the snug, with its fireplace recess , offers versatile space for various purposes and features built-in cupboards and shelving, as well as more of that beautiful oak flooring.
The heart of the home, the kitchen/breakfast room, is a culinary delight. It boasts a hand-built range of floor-standing cupboards and drawers, complemented by wooden worksurfaces and a Belfast kitchen sink with a wooden drainer. A beautiful gas Aga takes centre stage (not included in the sale), with contemporary tiling behind. Oak flooring, inset downlighters, and ample storage further enhance the appeal. The kitchen seamlessly flows into a conservatory, providing a bright and welcoming space. An adjacent utility room and a well-appointed shower room complete the ground floor.

Positioned on the edge of the popular village of Pilley, with a community run store and two lovely country pubs, the property enjoys easy access to the surrounding open forest for extensive walking and rides, yet is also within a five-minute drive of the amenities offered by the Georgian market town of Lymington. The town has a selection of excellent bars and restaurants as well as renowned sailing facilities, including two deep water marinas and sailing clubs. There is also a wide range of both independent and state schooling. The main line rail service at Brockenhurst has a regular service to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes.
Outdoors, the premises leave a remarkable impression, boasting an expansive shingle parking area and surrounded by neatly trimmed hedges. The back garden serves as a charming retreat, complete with a spacious patio leading to a generous stretch of grass, flanked by well-maintained flower beds and trees. Enclosed by fencing and accompanied by a shed, it guarantees privacy. Furthermore, the rear of the garden seamlessly connects to a sprawling five-acre paddock field, providing a serene setting for outdoor leisure activities and horseback riding.
Agents Note: The stables/stable block and shepherd’s hut are not included in the sale.
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.
