The property is situated in a conveniently central location in the very heart of the village of Sway, being just a few minutes’ walk from the mainline railway station (London Waterloo approx. 90 minutes), general convenience store, doctor’s surgery, public house and the highly regarded St Lukes Primary School. The open forest can be accessed towards the end of the road at Setthorns.
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.
A composite front door opens into the main hallway, which in turn links to all of the ground floor rooms, as well as the integral garage.
Set at the back of the house and extending across the full width of the property is a magnificent, quadruple aspect kitchen/family/dining room, with bi-fold doors overlooking the garden and opening out onto the rear terrace.
Open to the sitting/dining room is a beautifully fitted kitchen featuring a range of contemporary wall and base units, together with an island unit and separate larder cupboard. Quartz worksurfaces feature throughout, with an inset Butler sink and a range of built-in appliances, including a Neff double oven, Neff induction hob with suspended extractor unit over, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. This superb space enjoys views across the rear garden.
Further rooms to the ground floor include a separate utility room with quartz worksurfaces and space and plumbing for appliances and a cloakroom, with wash basin and WC. Also accessed from the hallway is the integral garage.
The ground floor accommodation features underfloor heating.
Stairs from the hallway ascend to the first floor landing, which offers a useful built-in double storage cupboard.
The principal bedroom is set to the rear of the property, enjoying elevated views across the garden, as well as a separate dressing area and an en-suite shower room with full-width shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.
The three remaining double bedrooms all offer elevated views across the front aspect, into the heart of the village or the rear garden. These three rooms are served by a modern, family bathroom fitted with a white suite comprising a bath with built-in shower attachment and rain water head above, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.
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.
