An exceptionally well presented country house sitting in an elevated position on the outskirts of Lymington with views over grounds of approximately 13.8 acres

Location

Tucked away off Monument Lane, Spring Acre occupies a fabulous position within elevated grounds of approximately 13 acres. The property is within walking distance of the Georgian market town of Lymington with its wide range of shops and boutiques. The near well renowned sailing facilities are close to hand and include two large marinas, and moorings on the river and at the town quay for visiting yachtsmen. Every Saturday there is a chartered market which runs the entire length of the high street. Lymington offers a branch line link from Lymington Pier station to the Forest village of Brockenhurst (approximately 15 minutes), which is some 6.5 miles to the north by road, and in turn offers a main line fast link to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes. 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. The Isle of Wight ferry terminal providing easy access across the Solent to Yarmouth is within walking distance, as is Walhampton school, which is an independent boarding and prep school.

The property is immaculately presented and offers some fabulous living accommodation, including a superb kitchen/breakfast room with attractive range of fitted units including cupboard and drawer sections with work surfaces over. The central island incorporating breakfast bar and hob makes for a real focal point and provides practical living space which opens out onto the family room area with its bi-fold doors out onto the rear terrace. The principal drawing room is well proportioned with central fireplace and attractive bi-fold doors along one wall onto the rear terrace: a great room ideal for entertaining and relaxing.

Outside
The property is approached off Monument Lane where a sweeping driveway meanders through grounds terminating in a large parking area in front of the garage block. The gardens on the approach are largely laid to lawn and open giving an attractive park like feel. At the front of the property there are neatly planted boarders giving a good degree of interest throughout the year.

The principal gardens lie to the rear of the property. A large rear terrace with raised deck provides a stunning space for outdoor entertaining and relaxing.

Beyond the more formal lawns are the post and rail paddocks which provide excellent turn out facilities as well as stable block and other outbuildings.
