Such a special house with the most amazing feel once you go through the front door, full of life, atmosphere, nostalgia, and warmth. Once you walk up the drive you are hit with the most luscious garden full of colour, you can tell it has been well tended to over the years, ideal for garden parties and of course the south facing views of the harbour are devine, a hive of activity by day and lights up like a jewel box at night time, you could sit outside all day or indeed at the bay window watching the activity on the water both leisure and commercial. Lynwood has been a family home for many years, it was built in 1860 for the Royal Admiralty and measures just over 4600 Sq. Ft, the space and light in the house is excellent. Original features, such as an original fireplaces in every room, cornicing, parquet flooring, pitch pine flooring, original tiled floor in the porch, stain glass in the internal door, a lift ( yes a lift in the house to take you to 3 floors – not the top of the house), bay window, sunroom, enclosed rear courtyard complete with rose climbers. You have a view of the sea from every room to the front. Orientation wise you are SSW(south southwest) – and that’s why it is so special, it is original and intact. Yes, the house needs updating internally but what pleasure you would have doing it. One could convert into a guest house or B & B or simply keep it has a family home. Location wise you are a 5 min walk to the train station which runs every 30 mins, you can walk along the Five Foot Way, the sailing club and tennis club are within walking distance, the marina as well. The schools, town itself and shops are all within a stones throw. You have a garden to the front in two tiers, a treehouse, drive, enclosed courtyard to the rear and a garden to the rear with rear pedestrian access. In brief the accommodation is – Porch with the gothic shape to the front door and the internal door and of course the original tiles, wide and spacious entrance hall with parquet flooring, 3 reception rooms – one has the lift, the other has a bay window and the other has access to the sunroom, all the reception rooms downstairs have the original marble fireplaces with original gilt mirrors overmantel. Access from the hall and dining room to the kitchen and then into the back kitchen/utility room, guest WC & WHB and access to the courtyard. On the return – lift again, two bathrooms, first floor – 4 bedrooms (1 ensuite and bay window) and a rather large landing (you could put in ensuites to cater for bedrooms if you wanted to. Second floor – 4 bedrooms - all double) and spacious landing. All the windows are original, there is gas central heating, the house appear structurally sound, the lift works perfectly, and the roof appears fine. What do I think – it is a great house, full of potential and if you love old houses, you will love this one.
