The property is situated on a good size plot located towards the front of a highly desirable cul-de-sac, within easy reach of local amenities and the open forest. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection to Southampton and London Waterloo (approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a thriving community, well regarded primary school, church, doctor’s surgery and the Jubilee fields offering fantastic recreation facilities including tennis courts, a football pitch and a cricket ground all set around a pavilion clubhouse. The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas, yacht clubs and coastline, is within a 4-mile drive over the forest. The neighbouring New Forest village of Brockenhurst (4 miles), again with a mainline rail connection, offers further leisure, shopping, and educational amenities, as well as a popular 18-hole golf course.
The property is accessed across a large area of hardstanding providing off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the detached double garage, with power, light and electric doors. Set alongside the garage is an additional area of parking screened by a high fence, which is ideal for a caravan or small boat.
Set to the other side of the garage is a good size and useful kitchen garden area, which again enjoys screening for privacy and offers options for a number of uses. This area is further complimented by a useful utility shed located behind the garage.
The rear garden is a particular feature of this superb home, being predominantly laid to level lawn and enjoying a delightful Southerly aspect. The garden area is larger than most in the close and is bounded by fence panelled borders for privacy. The garden is ideally suited to family recreation, providing a secure space for children to run and play freely.
Adjoining the rear of the property and overlooking the garden is a natural stone seating terrace, ideal for barbeques and enjoying the sunshine.

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.
