Tucked away in this wonderfully secluded forest location, the property is situated within the New Forest National Park, with easy access to the villages of Brockenhurst and Sway, which each offer a mainline rail connection to London Waterloo.
The property also offers easy access to the A35/A337 for connections to both Southampton and Bournemouth.
Constructed in the late 1980s, this excellent family home offers light and spacious living spaces together with generously sized bedrooms and a linked double garage.
To the ground floor, a covered entrance porch opens into a good size hallway, which in turn links to an inner hallway providing access to all the principal living spaces. Also set off the hallway is a cloakroom.
At the end of the inner hallway is a superb, 25’ double aspect sitting room which opens via double doors into a lovely garden room, with double doors to both sides opening out onto the grounds.
Adjoining the sitting room is an excellent, multi-purpose family room which shares a double-sided wood burner with the sitting room and overlooks the garden.
To the other side of the inner hallway is a dining room enjoying views to the front aspect.
The kitchen/breakfast room is set at the back of the house, overlooking the garden. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of wall and base units with built-in appliances including a Neff oven and dishwasher. The kitchen leads through to the utility room which offers built-in units, space and plumbing for appliances and a door opening out onto the rear aspect. From the utility room, an internal door opens into the double garage.
From the main entrance hallway, a turning stairwell ascends to the first-floor landing. At the end of the landing is an impressive 25’ triple aspect principal bedroom benefitting from an en-suite shower room.
There are three further double bedrooms to this level, with the principal guest bedroom also offering an en-suite shower room. The two remaining bedrooms are served by the main family bathroom, with all of the bedrooms further benefitting from built-in wardrobes and elevated views across the various aspects.
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.
