Tiptoe is a popular small village with two churches, a school, an associated pre-school and a public house. Some 2 miles west is the village of Sway offering railway links to London and the south coast, in addition to a variety of local amenities. The market town of Lymington, famous for its internationally renowned sailing facilities and marinas along with its Saturday market, is approximately 5 miles south west of Wootton. The property is conveniently situated within a short drive of the A35 and is within easy reach of motorways and rail links together with both Bournemouth and Southampton International Airports, this making it an ideal location for those with a requirement to commute.
This delightful bungalow has been sympathetically enlarged and improved in recent times to create a comfortable family home offering well-proportioned accommodation extending to 1445 sq. ft. A central hallway extends through the property, providing access to the principle living spaces and bedrooms. Set either side of the hallway upon entering the property are two double bedrooms, both benefitting from front aspect bay windows and built-in wardrobes. Also accessed off the hallway is a superb master bedroom with en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes, a family bathroom with double shower unit and a kitchen/dining room formed from two rooms and fitted with a range of oak units as well as a Rangemaster cooker and extractor hood. If required, the dining room could be easily converted back to a fourth bedroom. At the end of the hallway is a superb 21.9 ft. family/sitting room extending the full width of the property and featuring a wood burning stove. Adjoining this room and accessed via French doors is a glazed 21.9 ft. triple aspect garden room, which in turn looks across and opens out onto the rear garden.
To the front of the property, a short gravel driveway leads to a brick paved parking area for several vehicles flanked by timber fence and hedge borders. The driveway then extends from the front, down the side of the property to an additional parking area and double garage located at the rear. A paved sun/barbeque terrace wraps around the rear and side of the property and links to the lovely main garden area. The garden enjoys a south westerly aspect and is predominantly laid to lawn, with attractive hedge, picket fence and planted borders, and a small water feature set in the corner. Adjoining the double garage at the end of the plot is a large outbuilding offering options for a variety of uses.
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.
