5 bedroom equestrian facility for sale
Sway Road, Pennington, Lymington, Hampshire, SO41
Tenure: FreeholdSituated on the outskirts of the town, an individual family home of excellent dimensions with extensive outbuildings, standing in well stocked matured grounds surrounded by paddocks and woodland (available separately).
SITUATION Merry Oaks is situated approximately 1½ miles west of Lymington, between the village of Sway and Lymington town. The New Forest, subject of National Park status, encompasses over 140,000 acres of beautiful open heathland and enclosed woodland, offering many miles of unspoilt riding and walking. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers a wide range of shopping facilities includes various supermarkets, a selection of boutiques and a charter market every Saturday. There are excellent facilities for the yachtsman with 2 marinas with both permanent and visitors moorings on the Lymington River. The forest village of Brockenhurst lies some 4 miles to the north, affording a useful mainline rail connected (London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes).
DESCRIPTION A fine family home set well back off the Sway Road to the immediate north west of Lymington town. The property was built, we suspect, during the 1970's to provide accommodation arranged over two floors extending to an area of approximately 3,326 sq.ft. Opening off a fine hallway with its associated cloakroom is a superb sitting room with an adjacent garden room and separate dining room that makes for a great entertaining space. Similarly, the property has a separate study with a generous kitchen/breakfast room and scullery. The first floor provides for a total of five bedrooms served by two bathrooms (one en-suite). Externally, the property has tracts of easily maintained lawned gardens that feature a fine array of mature shrubs.
. Within the curtilage of the property is a fine range of brick block outbuildings providing exceptional storage facilities that would serve a variety of purposes. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for a considerable number of years and would now lend itself a suitable candidate for a programme of modernisation and /or refurbishment. Subject to obtaining the appropriate consents, the site might offer an incoming purchaser considerable scope. In all, a distinctive family home in a fine semi-rural location enjoying a lovely outlook, the whole being with 1½ miles of the thriving town centre and coastline.
