A stable front door leads into the kitchen/breakfast room with travertine tiled floor and a range of floor and wall mounted units with granite worktops incorporating a four ring Neff gas hob with Neff double under oven, an integrated fridge, and integrated slim line Hotpoint dishwasher. Accessed from the kitchen is a large utility room with a continuing range of floor and wall mounted cupboards with granite worktops, an integrated freezer, space and plumbing for a washing machine, coat hanging space and continuation of the travertine tiled floor. The kitchen then opens into the lovely south east facing sitting room which overlooks the water and has a fireplace and timber mantle over. French doors open into the conservatory which also has a travertine tiled floor and a beautiful outlook over the garden and the sailing lake, together with French doors opening out onto an attractive terrace. There is a ground floor shower room with suite comprising corner shower cubicle, low level WC and pedestal mounted wash basin. There is also a ground floor third bedroom/study. On the first floor there are two bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys an en suite bathroom with bath with mixer taps and shower attachment, low level WC and pedestal mounted wash basin. There is a useful under eaves storage space, with Velux window and French doors opening out onto the roof terrace with spectacular views over the Solent to the Isle of Wight and Yarmouth. There is a connecting door to bedroom two, which can also be accessed from the hall, again with a large under eaves storage cupboard and access to the roof space with a pull down ladder.

The property is approached along Maiden Lane enjoying two gated entrances with a gravel driveway having parking for several cars and access to the double garage. The garage has power and light with an additional useful storage area. A hedge divides the driveway from the garden, and to the sea side of the property there is a delightful terrace leading round to the conservatory and a feature pineapple tree. The remainder of the garden is laid to level lawn with a number of oak trees, one of which supports a spectacular tree house. The lawn continues down to the water where there is a launch slipway to the Salterns sailing lake providing a safe place to sail, which is also non-tidal. This is used by the Salterns Sailing Club, a private members only club for junior sailing only. It is not open to the public. Use of it by the owners of the property would require joining the club.

The property has had plans drawn up for a replacement to provide a sympathetically modern style of house. This would be down to the personal choice of a purchaser as the property itself provides for a charming Victorian cottage.


SERVICES Mains electricity, water and gas are connected. Private drainage.


Lymington

Lymington is a pretty, Georgian seaside town located just south of the New Forest. The town is famous for offering some of the finest sailing waters in the UK and is home to the Royal Lymington Yacht Club which makes it an extremely popular hub for the yachting enthusiast.

Lymington High Street is the venue for the bustling Saturday street market and has a tremendous variety of unique boutiques and shops, as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants to enjoy all year round. As well as this, there are many parks and areas such as the Old Town Quay in which to relax and take in the atmosphere of this charming, individual town. The Quay itself is reached via a small winding cobbled street and provides impressive outlooks over the Lymington River. One should enjoy the locally made ice cream from one of the parlours whilst taking in this wonderful view.

Lymington is a popular year round destination with a great deal to offer, including easy transport into and out of town. A regular ferry link gives easy access to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, whilst the nearby village of Brockenhurst also offers a fast rail service to London (approx. 90 minutes to Waterloo).

Cobbled streets and beautiful scenery means Lymington is a highly sought after area with demand frequently surpassing supply. A large portion of homes in Lymington have been redeveloped into modern apartments and retirement properties, although there are still some Grade II listed homes and properties dating back to the Georgian and Victorian era.
