OFFERS INVITED. PURCHASER INCENTIVE IF VIEWED AND PURCHASED THROUGH LLOYD WESTALL. A rare opportunity to purchase a four storey Grade II listed townhouse with uninterrupted views of Lymington River over a number of floors.
A rare opportunity to purchase a four storey Grade II listed townhouse with uninterrupted views of Lymington River over a number of floors. This is a real one off opportunity, the flexible accommodation needs to be viewed to be appreciated.
Captains Row first appeared in Lymington maps in 1795 and shows the real depth of architecture that Lymington has to offer. St Marys Lodge and the adjoining properties create Wellington Place, constructed in the 1790’s. In the same family for in excess of half a century, this red brick townhouse is a true gem. Set over four floors and modernised by the current custodian to make the most of the uninterrupted views of Lymington River and the Quayside properties below. The huge bonus of this home is the garage, Captains Row generally does not come with parking, however this particular home used to have a shop front and this has been converted to a garage in years gone by.
The entrance hall to the property is in an inviting space and provides access to all key ground floor rooms. To the right hand side is a pedestrian door to the garage. The hallway benefits from a lift shaft which could provide access to the floors above. To the rear of the ground floor is the dining room and kitchen, this contemporary accommodation creates a modern twist on a historical home. The dining area is fitted with a range of cupboards and storage space which works well with the open plan kitchen area, there is also a built in bio- ethanol fire. The open plan kitchen is set with a range of high gloss eye and base level units and there is a built in sink, electric hob with extractor and space for an American Style fridge freezer. This fantastic room has a wall of glass with views over the garden and a door leads to a terrace, ideal for al- fresco dining.
As you head upstairs the views to the rear get bigger and better. The first floor offers a guest bedroom to the front aspect, a well proportioned double room with a window overlooking the front aspect. There is also the luxury of a guest en- suite which has a panel enclosed shower, low level W/C and vanity unit with wash basin. The master bedroom is set to the rear and the contemporary full height window offers uninterrupted views to the rear. The master offers plenty of storage with a full length, mirrored, sliding door wardrobe. The en- suite has a five piece suite to include a shower and separate bath to name but a few of the features, this refitted room also makes the most of the views.
The second floor is where you will spend a lot of your time and this has been fully utilised by the current owner. At the rear there is a full width balcony with glass balustrade. The Southerly aspect of the house means there is no better space in the local area to make the most of sun drenched days. The lounge has been specifically positioned to accommodate these views and has the benefit of sliding doors and a feature fireplace. There is also a study area off the lounge and this is a tranquil setting for anyone working from home. The second floor also hosts a third bedroom and this again is a double room and has a range of built in furniture, serviced by an en- suite, which is very practical with the townhouse living.
The lower ground floor of the property is accessed via a stair case from the entrance hall and this does offer income potential for any buyer. At the bottom of the staircase is a lobby and this leads to a downstairs shower room which has been fitted. There is also access to the plant room which houses the gas central heating for the home. The lower ground floor accommodation continues with a separate lounge to the rear, below street level, but there is a practical light well and window, creating a cosey space. There are also two double bedrooms on this floor and both have windows and doors leading to the rear garden. This floor is completed with a recently fitted kitchenette and a dining area. This would make an ideal floor for teenage children or visiting guests.
The rear garden is a true oasis and has been recently landscaped. There are a number of paved sitting areas, edged by well stocked beds. The borders host a variety of mature trees and shrubs and there are a number of storage cupboards, ideal for potting. There is also external storage areas, laundry room and steps lead back to the first floor terrace.
The garage is a useable space and currently houses a car, the electric door makes for hassle free parking. There are also a number of car parks within the vicinity of Wellington Place and Captains Row. Free parking is also available on a first come first serve basis on Grove Place, Queen Katherine Road and West Hayes.
