Twynham House is positioned in an exceptionally convenient location on Lymington’s picturesque High Street adjacent to St Thomas’ Church. All the town’s facilities are on the doorstep with a wide range of independent shops, cafe’s, pubs, restaurant and boutiques within easy reach. There is ample recreational space at Woodside Park a short distance away with the town’s renowned sailing clubs and marinas also within walking distance. Lymington has a rail service to Brockenhurst twice an hour which connects with direct trains to the capital.

The building, which is Grade II* Listed is believed to date from the 1700s and is one of the quintessential red brick and stone town houses that contribute to the High Street’s unique character. An convenient feature of this property is the secure private parking for three cars that lies to the rear of the building. Planning permission has recently been granted to convert the building back from office use to residential.

The front door opens to an entrance lobby beyond which lies a hall and ground floor reception room. Behind this the staircase hall features an elegant original staircase which rises four floors through the centre of the house. Below the stairs is a door to the cellar where there are extensive arched brick wine bins. To the rear of the house on the ground floor is a breakfast room with door to a separate kitchen with sink and work surfaces. There is also a wc on the ground floor with a rear hall and back door to the courtyard garden.

On the first floor is a beautifully proportioned sitting room with twin sash windows, high ceilings and fire place. Also on this floor is a further room that could be either a study or bedroom. On the next floor are two further bedrooms with a further room, currently used as a store room which would be an ideal bathroom. On the top floor are two further attic bedrooms.

On the first and second floors are fire exits into the adjoining properties (to the benefit of both Twynham House and its neighbours) on either side which remain locked unless in event of fire. We understand that these doors are no longer necessary to the neighbouring buildings’ fire requirements and may, in time, be blocked subject to agreement with each neighbour.

Twynham House has a small courtyard garden and a right of access down the drive which leads to 4 private parking spaces. To the left of the drive are several parking spaces owned by Scott Bailey solicitors who also have a pedestrian right of way across the courtyard to their own garden behind their offices to the west.

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.
