The house is nicely set back from the road and enjoys an appealing outlook across the open spaces of Pennington Common which is ideal for recreation and dog walks. The New Forest National Park lies just to the north providing distinctly rural countryside yet retains the convenience of proximity to the shops and local businesses in nearby Pennington. Lymington’s High Street is a mile away offering a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafes as well as renowned sailing and marinas.

The house was constructed in 1955 and retains many features of the period including wooden herringbone flooring. The house is now in need of updating but provides significant scope in terms of potential for extension to create a superb family home in this delightful position. Subject to the necessary permissions, the house could be extended to both the side and rear maximising accommodation that would be perfectly justified on this extensive plot.

The front door opens to a wide hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to a well proportioned kitchen overlooking the garden, a dining room and separate sitting room with a fireplace and door onto the garden. There is also a downstairs wc.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property is approached over a private drive that winds through the front garden which is partly gravelled and part lawn. A detached garage lies to the left hand side of the house which also including a coal store and separate store room.

The majority of the gardens lie to the rear of the house with level lawn extending nearly 150ft and there is no house directly behind which provides a distinct sense of privacy.

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.
