The property is approached via a shared private driveway giving access to Arnewood Manor and two other properties. The house is situated within easy reach of the open forest and the village of Sway and is approximately 3 miles north of the Georgian market town of Lymington, renowned for its marinas and yacht clubs. Sway and Brockenhurst (about 3.5 miles north) both have useful mainline rail connections to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). Lymington, Brockenhurst and Sway provide a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.

GROUNDS & GARDENS

The property is approached via a paved track accessed from Arnewood Bridge Road. A long driveway leads through paddocks to the front of the house continuing onto an area of parking for multiple vehicles at the rear/side of the house. The wonderfully established grounds surround the property and extend in total to approximately 11 acres comprising gardens, paddocks defined by fence and hedgerow borders. A paved sun terrace adjoins and extends across the side of the house, linking to the formal gardens enclosed by mature hedges and shrubs.

The grounds lend themselves to a family, providing a great space for children and entertaining, as well as a high degree of privacy. Numerous possibilities exist including equestrian usage and the potential for a swimming pool, subject to the relevant consents being granted. Outbuildings include a stable block with attached tack room and an additional building currently utilised as an artists studio heated by a log burner.

The grounds also benefit from a tennis court which requires refurbishment. Historically, the property benefited from a swimming pool, which offers potential to be reinstated.

The gardens play host to a wide selection of wild flowers, trees and wildlife; such as roe deer, rabbits, dragon flies and eels in the pond, just to name a few.

THE SITUATION

Arnewood Manor House occupies a secluded semi-rural position on the edge of the delightful village of Sway. Nestling on the Southern edge of the New Forest National Park, Sway is a fine example of a quiet yet thriving village community, renowned for its friendliness. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection (London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a highly regarded primary school, two public houses and a popular Tennis Club.

The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas, yacht clubs, boutique shops and coastline, is within an easy 4 mile drive over the forest. The neighbouring New Forest village of Brockenhurst, again with a mainline rail connection, offers further leisure, shopping and educational amenities, as well as a popular 18 hole championship golf course.

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.
