The property is situated close to the village centre, putting the extensive facilities of this popular village within an easy reach. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection (London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a thriving community, and popular Tennis Club. Miles of open New Forest commences to the north of the property at Setthorns.
The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas, yacht clubs and coastline, is within an easy 4 mile drive over the forest.
The neighboring 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 golf course.
To the ground floor, an ‘L’ shaped entrance hall provides access to the principle ground floor accommodation and a stairwell ascending to the first floor.
The superb sitting/dining room offers an excellent size space with two large windows to the side aspect, window to the rear and a door opening into the conservatory/garden room, which in turn, overlooks and opens out onto the rear garden.
Open to the sitting/dining room is a good size kitchen which is fitted with a range of modern units, a Neff double oven, an island unit and built-in appliances. The kitchen also enjoys views to the rear across the garden.
Adjoining the kitchen and accessed from the rear garden is a multi-purpose converted garage room offering options for a number of usages (subject to the relevant planning consents. To the front aspect there are two double bedrooms, both of which enjoy windows overlooking the driveway and street scene. These two bedrooms are served by a recently fitted modern family bathroom with panelled bath and shower, hand wash basin and wc. There is also an addition guest toilet to this level.
To the first floor, a small landing area links to the master bedroom with side aspect window and en-suite shower room comprising an oversize AquaLisa shower, hand wash basin and wc. To the other side of the landing is a good size guest bedroom with side aspect window.
Agents note: The property offers considerable potential for enlargement if required by extending out further to the rear (subject to the relevant planning consents being granted).
Work Carried Out
The house has been reconfigured and extensively refurbished by the current owners with a new kitchen being moved to the back of the property and the staircase being re-positioned. The whole of the first floor has been stripped back to timber and insulated to modern levels, with a completely new central heating system with a modern condensing boiler and pressurised cylinder.
Other general updates include new doors, ceilings, flooring, some windows and fuse board to bring the property up to date.
To the front aspect, the drive has been remodelled with a new block paved drive providing parking for multiple vehicles.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The property is approached via a driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the carport.
The rear garden is a particular feature of the property, enjoying a south facing aspect and one of the largest plots on the road.
The garden offers something for everyone and is apportioned into two different areas of interest. The larger part offers an ideal recreational area for children to play, being predominantly laid to lawn with attractive planted borders. From here, a gate opens into a large area extending all the way to the back of the plot. This space is currently set up as a kitchen garden dedicated to vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers, with a Greenhouse at the rear. However, this space could easily be integrated into the main area of lawn if required.
Set between the two areas of garden is a large wooden outbuilding which offers options for a variety of usages.
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.
