The property is set at the start of a cul-de-sac, within a short walk of the heart of the ever popular village of Sway, by way of a cut through at the end of the road and the open forest. The village offers a useful mainline rail connection to Southampton and London Waterloo (approximately 100 minutes) together with a wonderful forest pub at The Hare and Hounds. There is a thriving community, well regarded primary school, church, doctor’s surgery and excellent convenience stores. The Jubilee fields offering 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. 

There is parking for two vehicles on a private driveway to the front of the property and a south facing garden, mainly laid to lawn with a garden shed and patio area. Both the sitting room and kitchen have glazed doors onto the garden. A wooden access gate leads from the front of the property to the garden. 

The spacious house forms part of a former village store and benefits from a sensible layout with light and good sized living areas.The hallway has a cloakroom under the stairs and staircase to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of storage cupboards, fan oven and four ring gas hob with extractor unit above, space for a fridge freezer and washing machine as well as a table and chairs. There is a wall mounted boiler and window to the front aspect. A separate fully glazed door to the south aspect leads to the lovely sunny garden. The living room is a very good size with separate dining area and glazed double doors to the south facing garden. 

The first floor accommodation comprises a main bedroom suite with double aspect windows to the south and west and a door to the en suite shower room. The second double bedroom has a south aspect. The generous family bathroom has been refurbished and fitted with a modern white suite over recent years with a shower over the bath, WC, hand basin and storage shelves. 

Agents note: The owners have informed us that there is good scope to create a staircase to lead into the loft and convert to a further bedroom suite, subject to the necessary planning consents. 

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.
