Grounds & Gardens
The grounds are a particular feature of the property, enjoying a good degree of privacy and seclusion with established tree and hedge borders. To the front aspect, a gravel driveway provides ample off road parking and access to a single garage with double doors.
The front garden is well stocked with plants and features two useful garden sheds, a mature apple tree and wisteria over the garage. There is access either side of the property to the rear garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn, with a delightful southerly aspect.
Set within the rear garden is a useful and substantial summerhouse/cabin, which is currently used as a study. Adjoining the rear of the property is a paved sun terrace with a further barbeque area set to the end of the plot.
To the western elevation, there is a pretty courtyard garden with access back into the kitchen and the rear of the garage. The courtyard benefits from well stocked planted borders and a mature apple tree.
Set on the sought after location of Kings Lane, Sway, this four bedroom detached chalet bungalow offers well-appointed living accommodation set across two floors.
The ground floor comprises an entrance hallway linking to a 20′ sitting room, from which doors open into the triple aspect conservatory and out onto the garden.
The double aspect kitchen is open to the dining room and features a modern range of fitted units, a breakfast bar and space for a Range cooker.
The dining room in turn enjoys a dual aspect with views across and doors opening out onto the grounds. Further rooms to this level include a bedroom with built-in wardrobe storage and views to the front aspect and a separate shower room.
From the hallway, a stairwell ascends to the first floor landing, which in turn links to two bedrooms both of which feature built-in wardrobe storage and elevated views across the surrounds. A further bedroom with skylight window and family bathroom with skylight window complete the first floor layout.
The property enjoys a semi-rural location on Kings Lane, within easy reach of the amenities and facilities of Sway. The village benefits from a range of local shops, a well-regarded primary school, two public houses, a popular tennis club and a mainline rail station offering a direct link to London Waterloo (approx. 1 hour 55 minutes). The popular village of Brockenhurst (3.5 miles) is within easy reach offering a wider range of amenities and facilities, as is the delightful waterside Georgian market town of Lymington (2 miles), which provides a comprehensive array of facilities for the sailing enthusiast and a popular Saturday county market.
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.
