A large, spacious family home in a private location with far reaching southerly views picking up the river and masts of the local marinas and the high ground of Tennyson Downs on the Isle of Wight. Hornbeam is a lovely, spacious, light-filled family home, orientated to make the most of its south-facing aspect which has been in the same family for decades. It offers plenty of flexible accommodation to suit a variety of lifestyles with landscaped gardens, parking and garage.

Hornbeam 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.

Steps rise to the front door and opens in to the welcoming dining hall with open fireplace(decommissioned). There is a study off here and stairs leading to the first floor. An inner hallway continues through to a study/store room, a spacious utility/cloakroom with storage cupboards, a larger utility room with another store off and an enclosed workshop area.

With careful planning this whole area could be open up to extend the existing kitchen/breakfast room. To the front of the house is a lovely south facing sitting room with a large bay window over looking the garden and a feature fireplace.

Upstairs there is a spacious landing with a door leading out to the south facing balcony which spans across the master bedroom. There is also an airing cupboard and cloakroom. The master bedroom has a character fireplace, fitted wardrobes and a connecting door through to a dressing area and en-suite shower room. Bedroom two has a Westerly aspect and fireplace (decommissioned) with bedroom three being at the front of the house with far reaching views, fitted wardrobe and a further fireplace (decommissioned). The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.


Double gates open in to the gravel driveway and parking area with a detached garage. A small path winds its way up to the house with a symphony of mature plantings, bushes, trees and shrubs, all well tendered with fence borders and a colourful display of flowers, plantings and fruit trees. There is a lovely lawn area and a high degree of privacy across the whole of the garden. A path leads around to the rear of the house with further planting areas and space for an outdoor shed and greenhouse.
