A beautifully restored and maintained Edwardian residence, situated on the south side of Lymington and overlooking Woodside Gardens. Within walking distance of the High Street and marinas, the house enjoys a stunning garden which is stocked with a variety of shrubs and plants including David Austin roses.

A spacious glazed porch with seating area leads to a half-glazed oak front door which opens into the entrance hall. The spacious hallway enjoys oak flooring and an impressive staircase with turn spindles and a half-landing window making the hall a light and airy space. Panelled doors give access to the reception rooms. There is a cloakroom fitted with a modern suite by Alessi comprising a low-level WC and wash basin, with panelling to dado level. The drawing room enjoys a lovely double aspect featuring a bay window overlooking the front garden, together with a granite fireplace fitted with a built-in wood burning stove. A glazed panelled door leads to the dining room which faces south overlooking the garden. The family kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a modern range of floor and wall mounted kitchen units together with an L-shaped breakfast bar and Corian worktops. This German kitchen is by Alno and comprises a stainless steel single bowl single drainer sink unit with mixer taps, two integrated Neff ovens, a Siemens induction hob, dishwasher and a gas fired two-oven Aga with two hobs and extractor fan over. Leading off the kitchen is the dining room and snug which enjoys a lovely outlook, oak flooring, a wood burning stove, a range of built-in book cases and French doors opening out onto the patio and gardens. The utility room leads off from the kitchen and comprises a stainless steel sink unit with single drainer and mixer taps, space for an American style fridge/freezer, a range of storage cupboards, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer wall, and a mounted Worcester gas fired boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating and security controls. There is also a useful secondary cloakroom with coat hanging space which is adjacent to the rear door, and the garage can be accessed from the utility room.

An stylish staircase with two quarter turn landings leads to the main landing where there are four bedrooms. The master suite is a double aspect room facing south and west overlooking the garden with a range of built-in wardrobes and access to the en suite bathroom. This comprises a panelled bath with monobloc tap, separate Mira shower, low-level WC and wash basin, fully tiled walls, recessed cabinet and shelved storage cupboard. Bedroom two faces south overlooking the garden with a storage cupboard and well-equipped en suite shower room comprising a low-level WC, pedestal mounted wash basin, walk-in shower, a range of storage cupboards with hanging and shelf space, and fully tiled walls and floor. Bedroom three and four both overlook the rear garden and adjacent to bedroom four is the family bathroom with a suite comprising panelled bath with monobloc tap and shower fitment, low-level WC, pedestal mounted wash basin, and fully tiled walls and floor. On the landing there is a large two-door airing cupboard with racked shelving. A smaller staircase then gives access to the second floor which provides a useful overflow bedroom/studio for grandchildren etc. This is a double aspect room with Velux wind and dormer window and large under eaves storage areas. There are venetian blinds throughout.

The property is situated on Rookes Lane opposite the protected Woodside Gardens with access via a private gravel driveway which gives access to just four properties. An impressive brick pillared entrance with oak gates opens onto the driveway with turnaround area, ample parking and garage. The garage is a large single with electrically operated up-and-over door with eaves storage space, power and light. The garden has been extensively remodelled and landscaped over the last seven years with level lawn and attractive flower borders stocked with a huge variety of plants, including approximately 200 David Austin roses, many temperate New Zealand shrubs including Lomatia Ferrugina, Eribotrya Jap and Colletia Rosea. A collection of specialist hydrangeas are a delight by mid summer and architectural planting of clusters of white barked silver birch trees are a spectacular feature all the year round. There is also a garden tool shed. There is a very well positioned summerhouse with patio, and adjacent to the snug there is a raised patio with pergoda making a lovely seating and entertaining area. Running round the side of the house, a paved path opens out to an attractive brick-built store and shed/workshop. This paved path then extends round to the rear of the property where there is a pretty courtyard area with flagstone patio with specialist plantings, a feature brick wall with sandstone cappings and arches and a feature water troth with fountain.
