The property is situated on the open forest in a private, but not remote location between Lymington and Brockenhurst. The stunning location, near to the picturesque Setley Pond is a significant feature, with the cottage enjoying direct forest access and Forest Rights.
The Georgian market town of Lymington (2 miles South) offers exceptional sailing facilities and a wide range of boutique style shops and restaurants.
The popular village of Brockenhurst also offers a range of amenities as well as a mainline rail station linking to London’s Waterloo Station (approximately 90 minutes).
Bournemouth and Southampton airports offer both national and international flights. The M27 offers a good motorway link to the M3 into London.
Set in a truly unique and special location, this lovely cottage forms part of a small community inside the New Forest National Park at the end of a forest track.
Internally, the cottage offers a modern, well configured layout offering large, open living spaces ideal for family get togethers and entertaining.
A modern stable door opens into a tiled entrance lobby, which in turn opens into a superb double aspect kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen area is fitted to two sides with a comprehensive range of wall and base units and built-in appliances including a Neff double oven, fridge/freezer, AEG induction hob with pop up Gaggenau extractor, dishwasher and a double larder cupboard. Set at the end of the kitchen is a useful utility area/cloakroom.
The impressive double aspect ‘L’ shaped sitting/dining room offers an excellent space for day to day living and entertaining, with two sets of French doors opening onto the rear terrace and garden.
To the first floor, a landing area leads to a very sizeable, double aspect master bedroom and guest bedroom. Both of the bedrooms enjoy magnificent elevated views across neighbouring paddocks and the open forest.
The bedrooms are served by a well appointed bathroom comprising a large walk-in rainwater shower with additional body shower attachment and glass screen, a hand wash basin with storage below and a wc.
The property enjoys hot water central heating throughout supplied by an electric boiler.
A further benefit of the property is the good sized loft room accessed via a pull down ladder. The loft is boarded and carpeted with good standing head height and has a completing Velux window. NB. The first floor accommodation could easily be reconfigured from two to three bedrooms if required.
To the front aspect, double five bar gates flanked by post and rail fencing open onto a gravel driveway providing off road parking and access to the detached, brick-built garage set alongside the cottage.
Wide access between the cottage and garage leads through to the rear garden benefiting from southerly aspects. The garden has been professionally landscaped to provide both lawn and well stocked mature borders housing a selection of flowering shrubs including Camellias, Rhododendrons, climbing Roses and Honeysuckle along with apple trees.
Abutting the back of the cottage is a paved sun terrace ideal for outdoor dining.
The garden is bounded by established hedge borders to the side and post and rail fencing to the rear and enjoys lovely views across the adjoining paddock land to the woodland beyond.
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.
