A substantial and thoughtfully extended detached house set in one of Lymingtons most sought after tree lined avenues, moments from the Marinas and the Town centre. This impressive property has accommodation arranged over three levels with a flexible design which affords the house a versatile layout highly conducive to family life.
Solent Avenue is arguably one of Lymington most sought after roads. The property is situated in a highly regarded residential road south of Lymington High Street and close to the marinas and sailing clubs. The Georgian market town centre of Lymington offers cosmopolitan shopping and a picturesque harbour, is within easy walking distance of the property, as well as the open-air seawater baths and the railway station to Brockenhurst which has main line links to London Waterloo.
On entering the property there is a porch with exposed timbers, vaulted ceiling and plentiful storage. There is access from the entrance porch to a study which mirrors the vaulted ceiling and provides further storage. The main reception hallway has stairs which rise to the first floor, timber flooring and two display cabinets which add to the impressive feel of this area. There is a cloakroom from the hallway and access to both the kitchen and sitting room.
The bespoke kitchen has been fitted with a comprehensive range of base and wall units with granite and oak work surfaces. The kitchen leads through to a dining area which in turn is open plan and adjacent to a large family room. The line of sight is drawn to the rear of the property and the whole area provides a sense of space and light, complemented by vaulted ceilings and bi-folding doors opening to the garden.
Our clients have cleverly extended an overhang to the rear of the house which provides a sheltered area. When the bi-fold doors are open a decked patio to the rear of the house extends the family/dining room and truly embraces outside living. The separate sitting room can be opened to the family room for grand scale entertaining but during winter months provides a cosy environment for a family with a feature solid fuel burner acting as the focal point to this room. To the left wing of the property there is a useful utility room next to the kitchen and a further garden room/reception room which is currently in use a study provides further flexibility to the ground floor arrangement of the house. To the front covered access leads to the garage which unsurprisingly given the proximity of the house to the Marinas is used as a sail loft and boating store.
To the first floor the mezzanine landing has a continuation of the balustrade staircase which rises to the master bedroom suite. From the first floor landing there is access to the further four double bedrooms, two of which have modern en-suite facilities. There is a retained roof terrace leading from the guest bedroom providing tree top Southerly views to the rear and plentiful space for outside furniture.
The master bedroom suite is an impressive space with Velux windows to front and rear and far reaching tree top and mast top views to the rear. There is dressing area within the room which leads to the en-suite bathroom. The arrangement of the five bedrooms with three en-suites with the social yet flexible layout of the ground floor works well for family buyers but also presents second home owners with the ability to invite friends and colleagues to enjoy Lymington life for extended visits.
To the front of the property there is Considerable parking within a generous gated driveway. The driveway also allows for boat storage and has direct access to the garage. The frontage is well planted and screened from the road with retaining timber fencing. Covered access leads through to the rear garden.
Adjacent to the rear of the property is a large decked patio ideal for entertaining. There is outside lighting and the decked extends to the main garden which is laid to lawn. The garden enjoys a Southerly aspect and is surround with mature planting which provides a high degree of privacy. There are mature trees within the grounds which provide sheltered spots and the garden is safely enclosed for childrens play.
