The bungalow is positioned on an attractive tree-lined road in Hordle, an active village with a range of facilities including a nursery and primary school (both OFSTED rated Outstanding), mini supermarket, petrol station and pub. To the north, the New Forest offers open spaces with countless walks and cycle rides. To the south lies the coast with attractive beaches at Milford and Barton on Sea with a wider range of shopping facilities in Lymington as well as outstanding sailing clubs and marinas. A mainline railway station can be found at nearby New Milton providing services to London Waterloo.
Double glazed front entrance door leads to the hall which has access to the loft space where the Worcester boiler with Hive system is situated. The living room has a large window overlooking the front garden and a focal point is the ornamental stone fireplace. The kitchen comprises a range of base and wall mounted cupboards and drawers under roll edge work surfaces incorporating space for an electric range style cooker, space for American style fridge/freezer and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is a window to the side elevation and a wide archway leading through to the dining area which has double glazed sliding patio doors to the rear garden, window to side and further door leading to the rear lobby. This in turn leads to a covered area where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and a door giving access to the rear garden.
There are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a further single bedroom. The family bathroom comprises panelled bath with shower over, small wash hand basin, wc and airing cupboard. A door from the rear lobby leads through to the study/bedroom 4 (previously a garage) with light, power and a door to the cloakroom which comprises wash hand basin and wc.
The property is approached via a shingle driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and leads to the garage/workshop with metal up and over door, power, light and a rear door leading to the garden. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with shrub and hedge borders. The southerly facing rear garden has a large shingled area adjacent to the rear of the property beyond which lies a level area of lawn featuring fruit trees (eating apple and pear) as well as a paved curved patio area, ideal for a table and chairs. The garden is bordered by fencing to the side and rear.
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.
