The property is situated in the 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 across the forest.
The neighbouring New Forest village of Brockenhurst, again with a mainline rail connection, offers further leisure, shopping, and educational amenities, is well as a popular 18-hole golf course and cottage.
To the front aspect and set to the side of the property is a driveway offering off road parking facilities and access to the detached double garage. A small area of front garden is flanked by established hedging providing a good degree of privacy. Set in the corner of the front garden is a timber shed.
Side access between the house and the garage leads through to the lovely rear garden, which enjoys a lovely southerly aspect and outstanding views across the neighbouring fields and farmland. The views are further enhanced and framed by a stunning backdrop of tall trees in the far distance.
The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with a useful utility shed set directly behind the garage and a small rockery garden located in the far corner of the plot.
Adjoining the rear of the house and accessed from the garden room is a paved seating terrace, ideal for outdoor drinks whilst enjoying the stunning setting and wonderful views.

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.
