The property occupies a pleasant position on the edge 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. 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.

A covered porch opens in to the spacious hallway with stairs to the first floor and a storage cupboard for boots, coats and umbrellas. The whole house has been redecorated with new carpets throughout. The lounge has a double aspect with windows front and back and a feature fireplace. There is a separate dining room with a front aspect and a newly installed lift to the bedroom above. The kitchen/breakfast room over looks the formal gardens and has double doors leading out to the patio and a range of fitted cupboard units and work tops with integrated appliances. A stable door leads through to an inner hallway with a ground floor cloakroom and access to the integrated garage. Stairs rise to the first floor to the sizable landing and the four double bedrooms and the new family bathroom.  

The beautiful and well established grounds offer a good degree of seclusion and extend in total to approximately one acre. To the front of the property is a gravel carriage drive and mature established planting providing good  screening and provides a high degree of privacy. A driveway extends to the side of the house via a five bar gate and provides access to the garden and barn. There is an additional five bar gate to the right of the property which also gives access to the rear paddock. The stunning and well maintained enclosed rear garden has a well-kept lawn, patio area, summer house and a number of raised beds. The formal garden over looks the rear paddock which has been left as a summer meadow with various mature plantings and fruit trees. There is also a useful barn ideal as storage for a rib or classic.

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.
