This Arts and Crafts character property has been refurbished over the last two years. The whole is currently discreetly divided and occupied by a multi-generational family in such a way that it can easily be reinstated as one residence.
To the majority share of the house is the impressive entrance hallway with beautiful staircase and galleried landing leading to the first floor. The large inner hallway has three sets of double doors leading to the rear garden, the impressive sitting room with log burning stove and Arts and Crafts feature archway, the south facing study and the spacious kitchen/dining room.
The magnificent bespoke newly fitted hand painted kitchen spans the width of the house on this side and has a large island unit dividing the room and incorporating a dining area. Integral appliances include a Neff fan oven, microwave with warming draw and dishwasher and there is space for a large American style fridge/freezer.
Link doors via the kitchen and utility room separate the house from the remainder of the ground floor accommodation which comprises a beautiful newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, a sitting and dining room with oak beam, glazed doors to the southerly aspect and log burning stove.
A staircase rises from the second kitchen to the first and second floor accommodation where there are three double bedrooms including two suites.
A further staircase rises on this side of the house to the stunning attic studio where there is a bedroom, living area and shower room. On this first floor landing is a laundry room and a link door to the remainder of the bedrooms.
From the galleried landing above the impressive entrance hallway is a substantial principal bedroom suite with a large dressing room/bedroom and a further spacious guest suite with en suite shower room.
Occupying a secluded semi-rural position on a quiet country lane on the edge of the popular forest 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. 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 property is approached through wooden entrance gates leading to a sweeping driveway and to a large parking area in front of the house and the oak framed double garage building which has a workshop above.
The wonderfully established grounds surround the property to the southerly and westerly aspects and give a high degree of privacy and tranquillity. They extend to approximately 0.75 acres comprising established mature trees to the boundaries and extensive lawns.
A stone sun terrace with a feature of wrought iron estate fencing runs along the rear of the house and is ideal for al fresco entertaining. The orientation of the property allows for spectacular sunsets to be enjoyed from the reception rooms.
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.
