Lisle Court Road, Lymington, Hampshire SO41 5SH

£4,500,000 via Knight Frank, Covering New Forest and Isle of Wight: 01590 637850

The 1930's property offers a fantastic opportunity to create a spectacular waterfront home subject to the relevant permissions being obtained. Lea House, built in the early 20th Century, has an in/out driveway and offers approximately 2,810 sq ft of living accommodation over two floors (this does not take into consideration the large attic space). This is the second time in its history that the property has been on the market. Today, the property requires complete modernisation throughout and, subject to the necessary Planning Consents, could be extended or possibly demolished and replaced by a modern-day property. There is precedent for demolition and replacement with nearby properties Nash Point (planning permission granted 2012) and Over the Water (planning permission granted 2014).

The property sits at the northern end its plot and benefits from spectacular southerly views over the Lymington River, the Solent and towards The Isle of Wight. To the east and west are bands of trees giving privacy and seclusion from the neighbouring houses. The formal gardens are predominantly to the front of the property and the rest of the grounds, stretch down, in a southerly direction, to the beginnings of the foreshore.

Within the curtilage of the property are three redundant buildings, a stream, a pond and a gate leading to the foreshore. To the north of the property is a single garage, together with the large shed workshop

The property occupies a prominent position with unrivalled water views and privacy. Lea House is set to the northern end of its plot and faces south enjoying exceptional unspoilt views across its own land to the Lymington River, The Solent and the Isle of Wight.

Access to Lea House is from Lisle Court Road, which is a lane servicing a small number of houses and farms. It therefore provides an extremely peaceful and private setting, yet is only a mile from Lymington with its bustling High Street and sailing clubs.

The property is surrounded by the New Forest National Park and, as a result, is remarkably unspoilt. The forest itself offers endless walks, cycle trails and out riding as well as beautiful open countryside.
