General Description

Constructed in circa 1905 and located 180 yards from Lymington High Street, this property has been the subject of a major renovation throughout by the current owners. Character features have been retained and re-instated wherever possible whilst areas have been remodelled and modernised to create an open plan living space. The entrance hall, staircase and downstairs bedroom retains its original features while wet underfloor heating has been added beneath a wood effect, ceramic, low maintenance floor in the kitchen, utility and downstairs living areas, creating a unifying cohesive space complimented by a fabulous feature fireplace for warm and cosy winter evenings.

Bamboo flooring provides a natural sustainable alternative to oak with low maintenance and water resistance in 4 of the 5 bedrooms. Upstairs the master bedroom has a spacious ensuite bathroom and 2 other ensuite bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. The large front room downstairs is currently configured as a 4th bedroom which could be used by an elderly relative with the use of the downstairs shower room and cloakroom, but it could equally be used as a second sitting room and occasional bedroom, or playroom, games room or library/office, or formal dining room.

The flexibility of the overall accommodation is further enhanced by the adjacent self-contained Annexe with its upstairs double bedroom and ensuite bathroom currently used by Airbnb guests or family and friends. The space would equally suit an independent teenager or student but could easily be adapted for business use as a home office, beauty therapist studio etc. (subject to planning).

In addition, to the single garage, there is off-road parking sufficient for up to 3 cars, seldom found in a town centre location.

DOWNSTAIRS

Porch and Entrance Hall

The enclosed front entrance porch approached from the driveway provides an inviting welcome to the home. There is an outside bell set beside the double-glazed double doors as well as the original wrought iron pull bell inside the porch appropriate to the age of the house. There is space for hats, coats, two boot boxes for storage of everyday outdoor items, an umbrella stand and a key rack. The front door is a substantial wooden door inset with colourful leaded light glass in keeping with the age of the

house. The door opens into a spacious entrance hall. The original Edwardian heritage floor is revealed with a return staircase leading to the first floor with a useful understairs storage cupboard below. In keeping with the traditional style but with a modern twist there is a new wall mounted black column radiator.

Three doors lead off from the Hall.

The Fourth Bedroom and Cloakroom

The front room is currently set up as a downstairs bedroom for an elderly relative. It has a feature bay window to the front aspect high ceiling with original coving and decorated to a sympathetic style with a wall mounted radiator. The downstairs shower room and cloakroom across the Hall compliments the front room well. The Cloakroom has a fitted corner shower cubicle tiled with arts and crafts designs (some by William Morris) plus a sliding screen door and a Burlington W/C and wash hand basin. This downstairs bedroom would equally lend itself to being used as a sitting room and occasional bedroom, a formal dining room, a playroom, games room or study/library.

Sitting Room

This is an ample square shaped room with a feature bay window, radiator and high ceiling with coving. The feature full height fireplace straddles the sitting room and kitchen area and has a maximum output of 10.5 kw which instantaneously warms the air on both sides of the open plan room and heats the entire space. It has a convincing log and ash real flame fire, and the quality and reality of the fire is enhanced by the non- reflective glass. Viewing is essential to see its full impact. The fire is ignited, and the flames are controlled by a remote-control device. At the rear of the room is an opening with original arch which leads into a small office area with a fitted a radiator as the underfloor heating does not extend this far. There is natural light and a window looks out on to the rear garden.

Kitchen and Utility

The kitchen area has a peninsula with an inset Smeg induction hob with pan drawers below and a recess which houses a TV. The peninsula has a 2-seater stool facility designed to rest the cook or serve as an occasional breakfast bar. The kitchen units have hand painted double sided doors in a grey or blue colour and are situated above and below a white quartz worktop. The tall cupboard nearest the hob has many divided drawers for ease of access to spice jars. There is a deep sink and drainer unit, a Pronteau hot water tap, a built in Bloomberg double oven and grill, together with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and integrated fridge freezer. An internal glass panel sliding door leads from the kitchen to the Utility room while another glass door opens into the Conservatory/ Sunroom.

The Utility provides a range of storage cupboards for food and vegetables and has speckled Quartz work surfaces. There is also room for an American style fridge/freezer where there is an adjacent water supply to connect an ice making facility or water dispenser. A tall cupboard is currently used as storage for vacuum, brooms etc. The Utility also has room for a washing machine and second dishwasher although the space could be adapted for a tumble dryer if required. There is currently a drying area above the Butler sink which has an extended flexi mixer tap that reaches outside the adjacent opening window designed to enable outside washing of muddy boots, pets etc. A washing line is located immediately outside the Utility room and attached to the outside Canopy area which enables washing to be hung and dried with minimum fuss. From the utility double doors lead to the Conservatory/Sunroom.

Conservatory/Sunroom

This Aluminium Ultraframe LivinRoom was built in 2020 to create a light, bright, comfortable room for use all year round. It has a plastered finish with extra insulation around the eaves. A hybrid conservatory roof offers all the benefits of a warm roof whilst accommodating customised glass panels. It has UV Pilkington glass to reflect heat in the Summer and to retain the heat during the Winter. The underfloor heating ensures this room is usable all year round with inset downlighters and independent wall lights. It has one set of sliding doors leading to the rear garden from an area currently used for dining, while separate double doors at the other end lead out to the outside entertaining space. The large windows provide a clear and uninterrupted view of the garden, which, most importantly, is not overlooked despite being in a town centre location. The outside lights and fountain can be activated using a remote fob. From inside the Conservatory there are two glass panelled doors leading back into the Kitchen or the Sitting room ensuring ease of access and ‘flow’ making the Conservatory and garden a great entertaining space.

UPSTAIRS

The grand wooden staircase has a limed oak effect and a Roger Oates stair carpet which was best chosen to enhance the heritage in this part of the house. The stair carpet extends onto the landing which affords a bright and airy space with room for a bookcase or bookshelves. There are views to the front of the house, whilst privacy is maintained by the addition of adjustable shutters. There is a loft hatch located on the landing with a pull-down ladder and light switch for ease of access. A black column radiator matches the one in the Entrance Hall.

Main Bedroom

Accessed from the landing, this is the largest bedroom upstairs with dual aspect windows to the side and rear. The view from the large door/window extends over the rear garden and ultimately stretches across to the East Boldre. There are fitted cupboards and a door leads to the superbly appointed ensuite bathroom. It has part panelled walls, a heated towel rail and boasts a generous superbly fitted free standing bath with hand shower attachment, a separate tiled shower cubicle with glazed screen and a Burlington W/C, Sink and Bidet, together with a feature Italian tiled mural of a tropical scene

Bedroom 2

Set to the front of the property, this room has ample room for a king-sized bed. It has a feature balcony with wrought iron railings and a full-sized door opening onto it. There is a cleverly designed walk-in wardrobe and another door that leads to a fitted ensuite shower room offering a good sized and attractively tiled shower cubicle. A W/C, vanity unit and corner basin with drawer and cupboard complete the ensuite.
