An exceptional period house of rare size and stature on one of Lymington's most sought after roads close to pubs, restaurants, marinas and the High Street. The house sits in 0.4 acres of well maintained south facing gardens with ample off street parking and garaging for three cars. Having been carefully and sensitively restored in recent years the house offers a level of space, style and convenience seldom found in such a convenient location. Epr: C

Stanley Road is a most sought after location to the south of Lymington's busy High Street and within minutes of the marinas and sailing clubs of our charming market town. The town has a weekly Saturday market and also offers diverse shopping facilities, a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. The Forest lies predominantly to the north and offers endless walks and trails on which to walk, run, ride or cycle. To the south lies the coast with further walks towards Milford on Sea along the Sea Wall and unrivalled sailing facilities.

To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 for access to London. There is a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

This superb period house is a rare gem situated in one of Lymington's most sought after areas being close to open spaces, marinas, pubs & restaurants as well as the town's beautiful Georgian High Street. The accommodation, which extends to nearly 5,000 square feet over three floors, has been recently updated to provide contemporary style thoroughly in keeping with the high ceilings and large windows of the house's Arts & Crafts origins. Beautifully decorated and finished throughout this charming property offers rare scale of accommodation combined with extensive parking and a superb aspect and location.

The front door opens to an impressive reception hall with a tiled floor and staircase leading to the first floor as well as a cloak room and adjoining wc. To the right, accessed via double doors, is the drawing room which is dual aspect with a bay window to the front, a large window overlooking the south facing garden to the rear and a recessed fireplace complete with solid fuel inset fire.

Beyond the reception hall lies the kitchen dining room with central island, four oven gas fired Aga and integrated appliances. The dining room has a full height bay window with door onto the garden and there is a pantry and ample storage cupboards beyond the kitchen area. Also easily accessible from the kitchen/dining room is the sitting room which again features a bay window overlooking the garden and a fireplace.

Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a generous utility room and second wc. A rear hall provides a secondary entrance from the front of the house leading through to a back door onto the garden. From the rear hall one can reach the gun room and adjoining triple garage which itself has doors to a wine store. There is also a log store that forms part of the footprint of the house and is reached from outside.

On the first floor there is a master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms all with en suite bath / shower rooms. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms which share a bathroom and are both accessed via a central landing.

Built in 1914 by Wilfrid Williams Ball, a British Victorian and Edwardian painter of landscapes and marine subjects.

The house is set back from the road behind a brick wall and box hedging. A pedestrian gate leads to a path through an attractive paved and planted front garden to the front door with its attractive arched canopy porch. There is ample parking for three cars off the road in front of the triple garage which has a double and single up and over doors. The majority of the gardens lie to the rear of the house and face south enjoying sun all day long. The gardens are particularly private and well maintained as well as being far larger than many plots for houses in this area. Overall the house occupies a plot of approximately 0.4 acres. The garden also features a summer house, greenhouse and tool shed.
