It’s a house with an identity crisis, but we still like this five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in Lymington, Hampshire.
Why the identity crisis? Well, this is a house that started life in the 19th century, but has been refurbished more recently into a modern house, albeit with a design that’s more in keeping with 1930s modernism.
That’s because it is located near to an art deco-style lifeboat station and as such, the new design matches up well. From the outside at least – the inside is very much a typical modern-day house.
Anyway, the current build, which you’ll find near Lymington’s marinas and yacht clubs, offers great views views across the waters to the Isle of Wight and up the Lymington River. That’s a selling point, for sure. Another is the high end finishes present, with the likes of bespoke kitchen units, a four-oven Aga, feature fireplace, an oak, glass and steel staircase and much much more.
Oh yes, space too. The ground floor has an entrance lobby, reception / dining hall, kitchen / family room, utility room, boiler room, pantry, rear lobby and two of the bedrooms. The first floor has a drawing room with balcony access, three more bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside is around a third of an acre of land, flagstone terraces, a double garage, an outbuilding and an adjacent car park with access to the water.
How much? We don’t know, it is price on application. But certainly not cheap.
