Energy Efficiency Rating: C



Long Bars sits within private grounds in a slightly elevated position within easy walking distance of Lymington Pier railway station which provides a half-hourly link to Lymington Town (two minutes) for an excellent selection of shops and restaurants and facilities. Next stop is Brockenhurst (10 minutes) which offers a mainline service to London Waterloo (approximately 1 hour 45 minutes). The Isle of Wight and open Forest are easily accessible, and Junction 1, M27, is 12 miles to the north. Walhampton independent prep school is within walking distance. So, too, is Walhampton Golf Course, Walhampton Arms and The Ferryman inn.



Long Bars is a large, spacious house built in 2000 and set in a delightful location that is peaceful and private and slightly elevated so that it enjoys stunning, protected views over Lymington River and the Solent to the Isle of Wight. A significant feature of the property is that it has been cleverly designed so that almost every room in the house faces south and most rooms have a view of the River and the Solent.

A substantial gabled entrance porch with double doors opens onto a reception hall with turning staircase. Well-portioned, high-ceilinged reception rooms include the drawing room with large square bay of full height windows that make a feature of the view across the river and marinas. Double doors open the room up to the formal dining room, and both rooms have French windows onto the south-facing terrace which runs the length of the house - altogether creating a wonderful space for entertaining.

In the east ‘wing’ a triple-aspect study includes built-in cupboards and shelving and a desk under a window with view across the gardens to the river. In the west ‘wing’ there is a large kitchen/breakfast/family room with Paula Rosa farmhouse-style kitchen units with granite worktop, space for dual fuel range cooker, American style double-fronted fridge freezer, French oak floor and French windows onto the terrace. In addition, there is a useful utility, two cloakrooms and wine cellar.

Upstairs accommodation benefits from solid beam and block construction. Altogether there are five double bedrooms all with en suites. These include two twin bedrooms under sloping eaves in the east ‘wing’, two guest bedroom suites large enough to accommodate king size beds in the west ‘wing’, and an impressive master bedroom suite with dressing room, en suite, extensive wardrobes and dressing table. The room’s most striking feature is a large square bay of full height windows that maximise the spectacular view. In addition, there is a spacious landing with walk-in airing cupboard, plus access to a fully-boarded, full height attic.

Across the part-walled courtyard garden is a separate games room complex currently used for entertaining. The games room is a very generously proportioned space and features a high ceiling with sloping timber clad eaves, a wall of bespoke low storage comprising display cabinets, cupboards and seating, and glazed doors onto the terrace. There is also a good-sized entrance hall, new kitchen with high gloss units in grey, space for dual fuel range cooker and fridge, cloakroom, boiler room and store room. It is worth noting that the games room complex was originally a swimming pool which could be reinstated if wished. Alternatively, it could be used as a gym, studio or home office.

Long Bars is approached via electric gates opening onto a block-paved driveway that curves round to a generous parking area and triple bay garaging with workshop and cloakroom.

The gardens surround the house and have been mostly laid to lawn with specimen trees and well-established borders. A feature is the wide, flagstone, south-facing terrace running the length of the house and overlooking sloping lawns with specimen trees, including a twisted willow, and formal mature herbaceous border with azaleas and bays - all designed to frame and not detract from the view. There is also an informal ‘secret garden’, fruit cage with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, and a further lawned area, with espaliered apple, cherry, pear, and plum trees. A path through a woodland garden leads to a gate with access to Undershore Road, opposite Lymington Pier station and the Isle of Wight ferry.
