GROUNDS & GARDENS
A short hardstanding area opens via a five bar gate onto a good size gravel driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the detached garage.
Set either side of the garage are two separate areas of lawn, one of which features an ornate water fountain and established planting.
An attractive decorative stone terrace adjoins the front of the property, being accessed from the dining room. Adjoining the terrace is a planted bed.
Access either side of the property leads to the beautifully landscaped rear garden, which has been cleverly apportioned into different areas of interest. The main area of garden is laid to lawn and interspersed with planted beds and an ornamental pond.
At the back of the plot is a lovely seating terrace enjoying fields across the side and the rear.
The rear garden is flanked by a fence panel border to one side and attractive post and rail fencing to the other two.
Services: Mains gas, electricity and water – Private drainage
To the front aspect, a composite front door with glazed inserts opens into an entrance hall linking to the main grounds floor living spaces.
The double aspect sitting room offers a comfortable space benefiting from a feature fireplace, windows overlooking the front and rear aspects and French doors opening onto the rear garden.
Set off the sitting room is a triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room with views to the front and rear aspect and a door opening out to the side. The kitchen area is fitted to three sides with a stylish range of contemporary units, with an extended breakfast bar, worksurfaces and built-in appliances including a Bosch double oven with additional Bosch microwave oven, Bosch induction hob with extractor unit over, Bosch dishwasher and a tall fridge/freezer.
The dining room is set off the entrance hall and features large double doors opening out onto a decorative stone terrace for enjoying the evening sunshine.
There are three bedrooms to the ground floor, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room. All of the ground floor bedrooms enjoy views across either the front or rear aspects, with the remaining two bedrooms being served by a modern family bathroom.
From the sitting room, a stairwell ascends to the first floor landing and the main bedroom suite. The landing features built-in storage and a window overlooking the rear. From the landing area, a door opens one side into the main bedroom with elevated views across the front and rear aspects and to the other side, a lavish bathroom overlooking the rear.
The property is situated in an idyllic forest location on the edge of the village of Tiptoe, which features two churches, a well-regarded primary school, an associated pre-school and a public house. The location is ideal for those who enjoy walking or equestrian pursuits.
The nearby village of Sway is about three quarters of a mile away and offers a good selection of shops for everyday needs together with a doctors’ surgery, hairdressers, school, church, pubs and restaurants. The village enjoys an active community with many clubs and associations to join. In addition, the mainline railway station makes for easy commuting to the larger towns of Bournemouth, Southampton and London Waterloo.
Brockenhurst is approximately 4 miles away and offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes and a good local community of shops and restaurants.
The attractive Georgian market town of Lymington is only a short distance away offering comprehensive shopping facilities, together with a busy Saturday street market and excellent marinas and sailing facilities.
These leafy villages on the southern edge of the New Forest have everything you could want for family life in the Forest. There are two village primary schools rated ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, a vibrant community with a variety of eateries, 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, Tiptoe and Sway are off the Forest’s usual tourist tracks and feel peaceful and relaxed.
The village centre of Sway combines the unusual with the desirable: a contemporary arts hub, quality businesses, mainline railway station, choice of popular pubs, good cafe/deli, award winning butcher’s, village store and post office among others. Sway’s claims to fame include 200-foot high Sway Tower, the tallest structure made out of non-reinforced concrete.
