A double glazed composite stable door opens into the entrance hall with wood flooring and stairs ascending to the first floor. The superb sitting room is located at the end of the hallway and features a front aspect window with plantation shutters, wood flooring and a Clearview multifuel wood burner set on a slate hearth with tiling behind.
Open to the sitting room is a magnificent Orangery, with double glazed windows, lantern roof and doors opening onto the terrace and garden. This superb room also features wood flooring with underfloor heating and links beautifully with the sitting room to create one large living space. The double aspect kitchen/breakfast room is set to the front of the property with a large window overlooking the drive and a door to the rear porch. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern units, an Aga cooker set into a tiled recess and built-in appliances, including an integrated dishwasher and built-in Neff fan assisted oven with four ring induction hob and concealed extractor above.
Set across the other side of the hallway is a good size dining room with front aspect bow window and wood flooring. Adjoining and accessed from the dining room is an excellent, multi-purpose room/bedroom offering options for a number of uses. The room extends the full depth of the property and benefits from its own front entrance door. The space could easily be converted into a completely self-contained area, making for an ideal holiday let/additional income stream, with services already available for the installation of a kitchen and bathroom.
An inner hall set off the main entrance hall links to the ground floor master bedroom which features a double-glazed casement door with matching side panels opening out onto the terrace and rear garden. Adjoining the main bedroom is a family bathroom with white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower unit over, a marble top inset wash hand basin with drawers and painted wooden cupboards under and a w/c.
To the first floor, a small landing area links to a bedroom to one side, with sloping ceilings and double-glazed Velux windows to the front and rear aspects.
To the other side of the landing area is another bedroom with sloping ceilings, double glazed Velux window and built-in wardrobes.
The two first floor bedrooms are served by a fully tiled shower room with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and w/c.
NB. Granted planning permission has been granted to extend the kitchen by the depth of the existing porch, together with the addition of dormer style windows to each of the bedrooms on the first floor.
The property sits back from the road in a large plot extending to approximately a quarter of an acre. To the front aspect, a long shingle driveway provides access to the detached, oak framed double garage and carport with parking area in front. The driveway then continues all the way up to the front of the house and can easily be used to accommodate a boat or a motorhome if required. Set either side of the oak framed garage are two areas of lawn, one of which features a charming little brook with a wooden bridge across.
A loose shingle path to the side of the property leads round to the rear porch, where a pedestrian gate provides access to the rear terrace and garden. The rear garden enjoys a good degree of privacy and seclusion, being mainly laid to lawn with hedge and fence borders. Set within the garden is a raised bed, feature fishpond and a covered pergola which could be enclosed with glass panelling to create a lovely outdoor room if desired. There is also a garden shed set within the grounds, which is now in need of some repair.

The property is set along one of Sway’s premier roads, within easy reach of the local amenities and the open forest at the end of Brighton Road.
The village of Sway is a fine example of a quiet yet thriving village community, renowned for its friendliness. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection (London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a highly regarded primary school, two public houses and the popular Jubilee Fields with tennis club, football pitch, cricket ground and children’s play area.
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.
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.
