Property description

A fine detached family home built, we understand, in 1994 by renowned builders McLain Homes, forming part of a small exclusive development situated on the western periphery of the town.

This well-appointed 4 bedroom property benefits from an immaculately presented range of accommodation extending to approximately 1376sqft in total.

To the rear lies an attractively landscaped walled garden, whilst the front of the property enjoys a fine southerly outlook over protected parkland. Additional benefits include an integral garage and driveway parking facilities for two vehicles.

Lymington The Georgian market town of Lymington has a wide range of shops and boutiques, as well as having the benefit of excellent sailing facilities including two large marinas, a number of chandleries and moorings on the river and at the Town Quay for visiting Yachtsmen. Every Saturday there is a Charter Market which runs the entire length of the High Street. Lymington offers a branch line link to the Forest village of Brockenhurst (approximately 15 minutes), which is some 5 miles to the north by road, which in turn offers a mainline fast link to London (Waterloo 90 minutes approximately). Junction 1 of the M27 lies 12 miles to the north, and links with the M3 for access to London. Miles of open forest suitable for riding and walking can be accessed at Bull Hill, Pilley or the nearby hamlets of Norleywood and East End.
