Milford Road, Milford on Sea, Lymington, Hampshire £1,250,000

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a house in need of modernising/redeveloping, enjoying a 5.5 acre site, sitting just off the coast road adjacent to Barton on Sea Golf Course. We understand the original house was mentioned in the Doomsday book and in it's current form was enlarged in the 1970s.

  • Kitchen
  • Inner hall
  • Cloakroom
  • Sitting room
  • Dining room
  • Four bedrooms & family bathroom
  • Garage
  • Approximately 5.5 acres including small spring fed lake
  • Offers huge potential
  • Sea views from the first floor

The front door opens into the kitchen with a range of floor and wall mounted cupboards, together with a gas point, an electric fuse box, and a wall mounted gas fired boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating. A door opens into the inner hallway which has wood block flooring and there is a cloakroom to one side. On the right hand side is the sitting room facing west and south with French doors opening out onto the garden, and a feature fireplace with Purbeck stone surround. On the left hand side of the hall is the dining room.

The staircase leads to the landing which has an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank, with racked shelving. There are four bedrooms on the first floor which are all doubles. The family bathroom comprises a panelled bath, pedestal mounted wash basin and low-level WC.

The property enjoys its own garden of approximately five and a half acres with access off the main road via a gravel track which leads to the house. The track continues beyond the house to a detached brick garage. There is a small spring fed lake and a variety of trees and shrubs. As with the house, the gardens have fallen into disrepair and the potential is enormous.

SERVICES Mains water, electricity and gas are connected to the property. Drainage is to a private system.

HISTORY & LOCATION We understand the original house on the site was mentioned in the Doomsday book and latterly was painted black during the war as it presented an unwanted significant landmark. The property looks out over Christchurch Bay with the golf course on the western side and to the east side a site of a Roman encampment.


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.
