Calling all romantics, walkers, wanderers and design lovers. Come hither. This place is for you.
Perched in perfect, peaceful privacy at the end one of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club dinghy yard, this tiny home packs some design punch. It is owned by Alice and Henning Stummel, whose London home ‘The Tin House’ was in Season 4 of Grand Designs, the RIBA House of the Year. Their ‘rescued boat shed’ has been repurposed with the same playful and minimalist style.
Whilst the areas bustles with boat-y life and small town vibrancy, this spot doesn’t. Stay here for peace and quiet. The trees shield you from neighbours and the view full of boat masts, sea birds and the Lymington ferry bumbling past in the distance. Open the garden gates out the front for a short-cut into the boat yard and coastal path. The Sea Water Baths in the Lymington Lido are just in front of you.
Walk ‘not-quite-next-door’ to great food and the town, walk west to big skies and wild beaches.
Whilst perfect for couples, those with kids in tow need to be aware that the single bed here is mezzanine and high up with a vertical ladder.
You’re welcome to bring your own boat for sailing. Access for dinghys and Optimists is through the garden to get to the public slipway next to the Royal Lymington Yacht club which is available for guests. The house doesn’t come with a berth, so your boat will have to be kept on the driveway. A small RIB will have to be driven around to the slipway. Or hire a RIB or boat locally.
