The property is located of a highly regarded road on the periphery of the village of Sway 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.
Designed and built to our vendors specifications, this appealing family home offers well configured accommodation across two floors.
A welcoming entrance opens into a hallway linking to the ground floor accommodation.
A front aspect dining room features a large window overlooking the garden and drive with a useful study set across the hall again with front aspects.
Set to the rear of the house is a double aspect generous sitting room with French doors leading out to the rear garden and a feature fireplace.
The well fitted kitchen is set across the rear of the house and has been renovated recently with the benefit of a new modern kitchen with extensive units at both base and eye level. Windows overlook the rear garden and a side door leads to the outside. A small utility room is set off the kitchen and houses space for further appliances and fridge/freezer.
The stairs lead up to the first floor accommodation. A stair lift is in situ and can be left should it be required by any prospective buyer or removed as necessary.
A generous light landing with windows across the front links to the four bedrooms and family shower room.
The principal bedroom is set at the rear with elevated open views across the gardens and paddock beyond and further benefits include extensive built in and fitted wardrobes, drawers and a dressing table. A newly fitted ensuite shower room is set off the room.
All three well proportioned further bedrooms also benefit from built in wardrobes and have open aspects to the front and rear of the property.
The family shower room has also been recently modernised with the benefit of a modern sleek suite incorporating a large walk in shower and vanity unit with WC and wash hand basin.
To the front aspect, a large gravelled driveway provides ample off road parking and access to the double detached garage. Set to the side of the driveway is an area of lawned garden bounded by established hedge borders.
One of the features of the property is the superb plot which extends to just over 0.25 acres with an established private and enclosed rear garden.
Predominantly laid to level lawn, the garden offers fairly low maintenance and is set with mature planting to a number of flower beds and borders. A green house and shed are set at the rear of the garden and a small water culvert leads along the right hand boundary behind hedging.
Adjoining the rear of the property is a lovely terrace with direct access from the sitting room. The terrace wraps around to the side and a path leading to the front and access to the kitchen.
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.
