To the front aspect, a solid wood front door opens into a good size, double aspect entrance lobby, which in turn opens into the main entrance hall.
The triple aspect sitting room offers a comfortable space with a central woodburning stove set on a granite hearth and French doors opening out onto the rear garden.
Set across the back of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room, which has been opened out to provide a fantastic space for entertaining and everyday living. The kitchen area features a modern range of fitted units, with accompanying island unit and granite worksurfaces. Set between the units is a Range cooker with stainless steel extractor unit over and built-in appliances including a Bosch fridge/freezer and dishwasher and a microwave oven. There is also under counter space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
From the kitchen, a door opens into a double aspect dining room, formed from the original garage and now offering an excellent space for a large table and chairs. This room offers options for various uses, depending upon personal requirements.
A cloakroom with wash basin and WC completes the ground floor layout.
To the first floor, a large landing with study area, loft access and picture window to the front, provides access to the bedroom accommodation.
The double aspect main bedroom features built-in storage to three sides and a large window overlooking the rear garden.
There are three further double bedrooms to this level, all of which feature built-in storage cupboards and views across either the front or rear aspects.
The bedrooms are complimented by a family bathroom with fully tile walls and a modern suite comprising a paneled bath with shower attachment over, wash basin with storage below and a WC.
NB. The property further benefits from granted planning permission to add a double storey extension to the side of the house to provide a garden room to the ground floor and two en-suite bathrooms above.
The property is situated in 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.
On the southern edge of the New Forest is the delightful and historic village of Sway, lying three miles from the coastal town of Lymington and five miles from the coast.
Sway boasts a vibrant community with an annual carnival, a village hall with activities ranging from archery to yoga, as well as cricket, football and tennis clubs.
The village centre offers a good degree of diversity, with a contemporary arts hub, a choice of popular pubs, a popular cafe/deli, an award-winning butcher’s, a village store and a post office among others.
The village primary school, St. Luke’s is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted making the area popular with young families.
A mainline rail station linking to London Waterloo adds to the allure for commuters and while there’s easy access to the open forest for dog walking and cycling, Sway is off the usual tourist track making it feel peaceful and relaxed.
Sway’s claims to fame include the 200-foot high Sway Tower, the tallest structure constructed of non-reinforced concrete and an iconic landmark of the New Forest.
The countryside around Sway was also the setting for Captain Marryat’s work ‘The Children of the New Forest’.
