Property Description

Full description

An extremely rare opportunity to acquire this magnificent example of an Edwardian, Arts and Crafts property built in 1919, sitting in delightful plot of approx. 4 acres. This beautiful family home of five bedrooms and three reception rooms has been sympathetically restored and renovated to exacting standards with the aim of retaining as much of the original charm and features as possible.  The harbour at Keyhaven offers access to the popular waters of the Solent making it a perfect haven for small yachts and dinghies.  The village is situated within walking distance of Milford on Sea and a few miles of the Georgeian market town of Lymington with its river, marinas and yacht clubs, as well as the station with branch line to Brockenhurst with mainline services to London Waterloo (90 minutes). Energy Efficiency Rating: E

Keyhaven is said to derive from "Cyhaefen" the Saxon term for a point of disembarkation to and from the Isle of Wight for animals bound for market. It is believed to have been a port from as early as 1206. Keyhaven is a distinctive hamlet with a tidal harbour beloved by yachtsmen, anglers, birdwatchers and artists drawn by the play of light and colour on the marshes and gleaming channels. The two sailing clubs are a short distance away as is The Gunn Inn. Keyhaven is about three miles from Lymington which offers a good selection of local shops and restaurants. Southampton and Bournemouth airports offer both national and international flights. Lymington also has a railway station with branch line to Brockenhurst where you can catch a train to London Waterloo (approx. 90 minutes).
