Hornbeam sits within private grounds in a slightly elevated position within easy walking distance of Lymington Pier railway station which provides a half-hourly link to Lymington Town (two minutes) for an excellent selection of shops and restaurants and facilities. Next stop is Brockenhurst (10 minutes) which offers a mainline service to London Waterloo (approximately 1 hour 45 minutes). The Isle of Wight and open Forest are easily accessible, and Junction 1, M27, is 12 miles to the north. Walhampton independent prep school is within walking distance. So, too, is Walhampton Golf Course, Walhampton Arms and The Ferryman inn.

Double gates open in to the gravel driveway and parking area with a detached garage. A small path winds its way up to the house with a symphony of mature plantings, bushes, trees and shrubs, all well tendered with fence borders and a colourful display of flowers, plantings and fruit trees. There is a lovely lawn area and a high degree of privacy across the whole of the garden. A path leads around to the rear of the house with further planting areas and space for an outdoor shed and greenhouse.

Steps rise to the front door and opens in to the welcoming dining hall with open fireplace(decommissioned). There is a study off here and stairs leading to the first floor. An inner hallway continues through to a study/store room, a spacious utility/cloakroom with storage cupboards, a larger utility room with another store off and an enclosed workshop area.

With careful planning this whole area could be open up to extend the existing kitchen/breakfast room. To the front of the house is a lovely south facing sitting room with a large bay window over looking the garden and a feature fireplace.

Upstairs there is a spacious landing with a door leading out to the south facing balcony which spans across the master bedroom. There is also an airing cupboard and cloakroom. The master bedroom has a character fireplace, fitted wardrobes and a connecting door through to a dressing area and en-suite shower room. Bedroom two has a Westerly aspect and fireplace (decommissioned) with bedroom three being at the front of the house with far reaching views, fitted wardrobe and a further fireplace (decommissioned). The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.


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.
