A fully covered entrance porch provides access to a cloakroom off to the side and the main entrance hall via a solid wood door.
The entrance hall extends through the centre of the house, with doors leading off to the dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and study. The dining room is open to the sitting room, creating a fantastic double aspect ‘L’ shaped space that extends the full depth of the house, with sliding double doors opening from the dining area onto the rear garden.
Also accessed from the dining area is a triple aspect garden room set under a double glazed roof with sliding double doors to the garden.
Adjoining the dining room is the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of Shaker style wall and base units with integrated Bosch dishwasher and space and plumbing for a washing machine. Frome here, a door leads out to the side aspect (It is worth noting that the kitchen could be opened out by knocking through into the dining room to create one large, open plan space befitting a modern day lifestyle).
From the hallway, stairs ascend to the first floor landing, which provides access to all four bedrooms and the roof space via a hatch.
The master bedroom benefits from a fitted double wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with double shower cubicle, wash hand basin, wc and stainless steel ladder towel rail.
Bedroom two has a window overlooking the rear and a built in wardrobe.
There are two further bedrooms to this level, as well as a family bathroom which comprises a panelled bath and shower over, wash hand basin, wc and ladder style radiator.
Agent’s Note: The property benefits from granted planning permission for an adjoining two storey extension for the purpose of creating additional living/bedroom accommodation.
Full details of the planning granted can be found on the New Forest National Park planning website. Application No. 19/00291
The property is situated in the very heart of Sway Village, putting the extensive facilities of this popular village within 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. A short distance from the property, at the end of the road, lies miles of open forest ideal for walking and riding.
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 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 golf course and cottage.
The south west facing rear garden, formed from a large corner plot is delightfully secluded with access from the front through a wooden door, enclosed to all sides, in part timber fencing and mature hedging with the upper garden laid mainly to lawn containing an array of mature shrubs and bushes.
The garage is accessed via a metal up and over door, with an additional door leading back into the rear garden. Ample parking suitable for a motor home, caravan, boat or a number of cars.
Planning permission has also been granted for parking from Station Road, which forms part of the same application as the two storey extension. Planning Application No. 19/00291.
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.
