The property is set towards the end of a cul-de-sac, in the heart of the ever popular village of Sway, within a short distance of the open forest. At the end of the cul-de-sac is a footpath leading directly into the centre of the village.
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.
Subject to an extensive programme of enlargement and refurbishment in 2016, this impressive family home offers flexible, well-appointed accommodation throughout.
Internally, a central entrance hall with storage cupboards extends through the property providing access to all ground floor living spaces as well as a stairwell ascending to the first floor.
Set at the back of the house to enjoy the delightful southerly aspect is a magnificent double aspect open plan kitchen/dining/living room offering a wonderful space for everyday family living. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of modern units, wood block work surfaces and built-in appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, two ovens and a Smeg induction hob with extractor over. Additional features include a double sink with large spray tap, wine fridge and LED lights throughout.
The living space provides ample space for large sofa units and features a fireplace as well as a full width shelving unit with space for a large television.
This superb space features roof windows and aluminium bi-fold doors opening onto the York stone terrace creating a perfect fusion of indoor/outdoor living.
The master bedroom and principle guest bedroom both feature front aspect windows overlooking the drive and en-suite shower rooms. The master bedroom features a designated dressing room with built-in wardrobes to the second bedroom.
There are two additional bedrooms to this level, both of which are served by a modern family bathroom comprising a panelled bath and shower.
Further rooms to the ground floor include a small study area, dressing room and a utility room opening onto the side aspect.
From the dressing room, a stairwell ascends to the first floor bedroom which features a front aspect window, skylight windows and an en-suite shower room.
This property has been refurbished to an extremely high standard. To find out more information regarding the new fixtures and fittings, please ask for a specification sheet detailing all the relevant information.
Gounds & Gardens
To the front aspect, wooden gates open onto a shingle driveway which extends across the width of the property providing off road parking for several vehicles. A central paved pathway leads to the front door.
A side access gate leads to a side alley with car wash and electric point store.
The rear garden combines a beautiful York stone sun terrace with a secure level lawn garden flanked by timber fence and established hedge borders.
Set within the rear garden are a number of outbuildings, including a large building comprising a garden shed, gym and workshop and a lovely separate cabin with a log burner.
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.
