The village of Hordle is a close neighbour of the small and busy town of New Milton to the west, and the popular Georgian market town of Lymington to the east. A general store is complimented by a selection of further shops, two pubs and a primary school. For leisure activities, the choice of wonderful coastal walks at Milford on Sea is matched by the New Forest, which provides an area of outstanding natural beauty with ancient woods and heathland enjoyed by riders and walkers alike. Sway lies approximately 3 miles north, where the main line station connects to London Waterloo and the nearby A337 gives direct access to junction 1 of the M27 motorway.
Communal front door leads to the front door of the apartment. Hallway with entry phone receiver, storage cupboard and doors to all rooms leading off. The lounge is a wonderful bright and spacious south facing room with ample space for both lounge and dining room furniture. Patio doors to the communal front garden and archway through to the fitted kitchen. Range of fitted units, integrated appliances comprising fridge, oven and hob with space for washing machine, part tiled walls and a view to the front garden.
The master bedroom is a good sized double with views to the rear. Bedroom two is a single again with rear views. The contemporary white bathroom suite with shower over and heated towel rail completes the accommodation.
Electric gates open on to the secure private allocated parking area with additional pedestrian access. To the front of the building and accessed from the lounge is a private garden shared with the adjacent ground floor apartment.
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.
