Lot 1: Battramsley Lodge
Battramsley Lodge is a magnificent detached country mansion which is now in need of complete refurbishment and upgrading. The house is constructed of brick walls set under a pitched Welsh slate roof with symmetrical Georgian style bow windows to the southern elevation. The original house is believed to have been constructed around 1720 with later extensions being added.
The accommodation is set across three floors and extends to approximately 7800 sq ft comprising 10 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with a variety of reception rooms to the ground floor. There is also a large integral double garage with an impressive 29’ studio room above. Of particular note are a stunning 20 x 17 ft drawing room, dining room and study set either side of the original staircase. Numerous other rooms to the ground floor offer potential for a variety of uses as well as the opportunity to knock through and create large open plan living spaces if required.
The grounds which surround the house extend to almost 5 acres. They feature a formal lawn garden to the southern aspect linking to an area of woodland garden and a paddock of approximately 1.5 acres.
Lot 2: Battramsley Lodge Cottage
Set behind the main house is a charming two storey, two bedroom detached red brick cottage with separate garage standing in its own private grounds of approximately quarter of an acre. The cottage is also in need of complete modernisation but again offers a fantastic footprint with the additional benefit of the adjoining stables and hayloft above. These offer potential for inclusion into the existing living accommodation (subject to the relevant consents being granted).
Lot 3: Land extending to approximately 4 acres
Lot 4: Land extending to approximately 7 acres
These two adjoining parcels of land are flanked by established woodland.
The seven acre parcel of land benefits from private access off Boldre Grange lane and offers the possibility of creating a grand driveway leading down from the top of the land down to the southern elevation of the main house and round to the parking area (This again would require the necessary consents being granted by the New Forest National Park.
The property is situated between Brockenhurst and Lymington and within easy access of the open forest at Setley Pond. The village of Brockenhurst lies approximately two miles to the north and benefits from a mainline station with direct access to London Waterloo and an extensive range of local shops, restaurants, a primary school, a popular tertiary college and the renowned Brockenhurst Golf Club. The Georgian market town of Lymington is approximately two miles south with its extensive yachting facilities, Saturday market and a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.
Living in Sway
This leafy village on the southern edge of the New Forest has everything you could want for family life in the Forest. There’s a village primary school rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, a vibrant community with annual carnival, village hall (activities range from archery to yoga), plus cricket, football and tennis clubs. And while there’s easy access to the Forest’s open grassland, heathland and woodland for dog walking and cycling, Sway is off the Forest’s usual tourist tracks and feels peaceful and relaxed.
The village centre combines the unusual with the desirable: a contemporary arts hub, quality businesses like Sway Woodburning Centre, mainline railway station, choice of popular pubs, good cafe/deli, award-winning butcher’s, village store and post office among others.
Property is an attractive pick ‘n’ mix of everything including substantial country houses, individual modern builds in good-sized plots, family homes, imaginative refurbishments, closes of quality new terraces, chalet bungalows and a smattering of Edwardian semi-detached villas and thatched cottages.
Sway’s claims to fame include 200-foot high Sway Tower, the tallest structure made out of non-reinforced concrete, and the countryside around Sway was the setting for Captain Marryat’s work The Children of the New Forest.
