GROUNDS & GARDENS
A gravel driveway over a cattle grid with separate pedestrian gate opens onto a large gravel driveway and turning area offering off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the double garage, with home office behind.
The garden wraps around the property and is predominantly laid to level lawn with established hedge borders.
Set within the grounds are a number of specimen trees, including two palms, a Silver Birch, Acer and Magnolia. There is also a summer house which catches the sun from noon until dusk, together with two garden sheds and a children’s playhouse.
Adjoining the rear of the property is a paved seating terrace which extends the full width of the property and down to the double garage and home office. This space offers options for conversion to additional ancillary accommodation if required (Subject to the necessary planning consents being granted).
Across the lane and directly opposite the property are miles of open forest ideal for walking and riding.
A covered entrance porch opens into an entrance hall providing access to the main ground floor living spaces and a stairwell ascending to the first floor.
The impressive, triple aspect sitting room extends the full depth of the property and features a brick, Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors with windows either side opening onto the rear terrace and garden.
The dining room is set at the far end of the hallway and opens into an excellent, triple aspect kitchen/breakfast/study room, with both rooms benefiting from French doors opening onto the rear terrace and garden.
The kitchen is fitted to three sides with a range of modern, beech effect units with built in Bosch appliances, including a tall fridge/freezer, additional freezer, double oven, dishwasher and induction hob with extractor unit over.
The kitchen is open to the utility room, which features a range of complimenting units with built-in Bosch washing machine, tumble dryer and door opening out to a covered side entrance.
Further rooms to the ground floor include a ground floor bedroom with front aspect window and a fully tiled shower room with shower cubicle, hand wash basin and WC.
To the first floor, a small landing area links to the main bedroom which features a rear aspect window, built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room comprising a shower cubicle, hand wash basin, wc and window offering views across to the open forest. There is also a useful storage cupboard which also leads to loft space.
To the other side of the landing is a lovely guest suite with front aspect window offering elevated views across the open forest, built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room comprising a shower cubicle, hand wash basin and WC.
(The property also benefits from solar panels on the garage roof which we understand generate approximately £1,500.00 of income per annum).

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.
