The beautiful Georgian market town of Lymington with its cosmopolitan shopping and picturesque harbour is within easy reach of the property. Also within walking distance are the two large deep water marinas and sailing clubs for which the town has gained its status as a world renowned sailing resort, as well as an open-air seawues and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. On Saturday, a market is held in the High Street, the origins of which probably date back to the 13th Century. To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 for access to London. There is also a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) providing a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of 90 minutes. Lymington has a number of independent shops including some designer boutique.

There are two entrances to Ferry Point, the first accessible from the covered car port opens in to a ground floor hallway. Wet dogs, sailing gear and wellies can be easily dealt with before entering the body of the house. The utility room is also sensibly positioned here, with storage cupboards, plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryers, coat and boot storage and an attractive porthole window. There is a ground floor cloak room and a door which leads through to the impressive kitchen/family room. This room has a flexible arrangement for furniture and allows for a casual seating and dining area and is warmed by a gas coal effect burner.. There are double glass doors which lead to the raised patio providing space for both outside entertaining. The kitchen has a range of fitted cupboards and work tops with fitted double oven with warming drawer, induction hob and integrated dish washer  The second and primary entrance takes you to a raised half landing with velux window and a access to the lounge above or kitchen below. The main living room is a truly wonderful  room with breath taking views across the river taking in the marina, town quay and bustling yachts heading up and down the water. The comfortable lounge has an open brick fire place with double doors which open on to the glass covered terrace providing alfresco dining whilst watching the sun set. Bedroom 3 is also positioned on the first floor with fitted wardrobes and the use of the large family bathroom.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor with wonderful river views, providing a beautiful backdrop. The main bedroom has built in storage and en suite bathroom. The second bedroom, also on this floor also benefits from an en-suite and is a very comfortable double.

We feel this house would appeal to purchasers wanting to acquire a second or full time home which embraces the true sailing ambience of Lymington life. The low maintenance of a modern house, convenient positioning within striking distance of restaurants and yacht clubs and also being on the doorstep of open forest, make this house an ideal base for persons wishing to enjoy the best of Hampshire life.

There is a covered carport which is integrated into the structure of the property allowing for dry access to the property on rainy days. There is also a garage with an electric up and over door and large storage area in the eaves which is currently used a workshop. Power and light are both supplied to the garage.

The main garden has been landscaped for ease of maintenance and provides several seating areas ideal for entertaining. The garden is retained with a stone wall.

The second floor terrace has a large area for seating and outside dining. A glass retaining balcony surrounds the terrace allowing for all weather dining and provides the most idyllic views across the river and marinas.

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.
