The property occupies a semi-rural position on the edge and within a short walk of the delightful village of Sway. Nestling on the Southern edge of the New Forest National Park, Sway is a fine example of a quiet yet thriving village community, renowned for its friendliness. 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 offers a useful mainline rail connection (London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes) together with a range of shops, a highly regarded primary school, two public houses and a popular Tennis Club.

The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas, yacht clubs, boutique shops 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 championship golf course.

The current property extends to approximately 2090 sq ft and has a two bedroom, two storey 1370 sq ft annexe. The property offers potential for extension or the creation of a replacement dwelling (subject to the necessary planning consents being granted).

The existing ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall, a triple aspect 23ft sitting room with fireplace, kitchen with a range of fitted units, dining room, large utility room and wc. To the first floor a landing area links to five bedrooms and a bathroom with scope to create an additional bathroom. The annexe benefits from a separate kitchen, sitting room across the rear of the property and separate dining room and ground floor bathroom with the first floor offering 2 bedrooms.

The property is currently configured so that the principle living rooms and bedrooms enjoy a southerly orientation and wonderful views across the grounds and fields beyond.

The property is approached via an unmade lane opening into an area of off road parking for several vehicles. The stunning grounds surrounding the property comprise areas of terraced garden, orchard and paddocks enjoying a lovely open aspect and then sloping gently down to the rear post and rail boundary. To the front aspect an established treeline provides a good degree of privacy.

Set within the grounds to the rear is a 47’ft. large Barn, with workshops, additional storage and double garage set to the side providing very useful and versatile outbuildings.

In total the grounds extend to approximately 1.4 acres.

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.
