The main building is accessed from the ground floor via a welcoming communal entrance porch and hallway featuring attractive Victorian tiled flooring. From the communal hallway, a wooden stairwell ascends to the first floor landing, where a further flight of stairs leads directly to the second floor landing and the penthouse apartment.

A solid wood front door opens into the entrance hall for the apartment which features Oak parquet flooring and a wall mounted security entry phone. A double door walk-in cupboard houses the gas heating and hot water boiler with an adjacent space with plumbing for washing machine.

The impressive sitting room features windows to the front and double French style doors opening onto a private balcony with ornate wooden balustrade offering elevated views across the village, the New Forest and paddocks beyond.

Adjoining the sitting room is the kitchen/breakfast room which has been fitted with an attractive range of handmade and hand-painted Shaker style wall and base units fitted to three walls. Appliances include a built-in dishwasher and fridge, as well as a free-standing electric oven with gas hob and fitted matching stainless steel extractor fan. Oak parquet flooring is fitted throughout.

Set at the end of the hallway is the master bedroom featuring side aspect windows, two double door built-in eaves storage cupboards, both with automatic lighting providing ample storage and an en-suite shower/wet room.

There are two other double bedrooms with built-in storage cupboards and windows offering views of the front and rear aspect respectively.

The layout is completed by a family bathroom comprising a wooden panelled bath with wall mounted shower over, hand wash basin and WC. The bathroom features Parquet wooden flooring and part tiled walls with wall mounted courtesy mirror and lights.

The building has been upgraded to the best possible energy and sound proofing standards as follows:

– All roofs have been renewed with high specification modern insulation

– All floors have been insulated to a high specification

– All party walls and floors have been insulated to meet the most stringent sound proofing criteria

The property is situated in a convenient location in the heart of the village, being just a few minutes walk from the mainline railway station (London Waterloo approx. 90 minutes), general convenience stores, doctors surgery, public house and the highly regarded St Lukes Primary School.

The open forest can be accessed towards the end of the road at Setthorns. 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 local village amenities include Sway Butchers, Pharmacy, Post Office, Sway Manor Hotel, Sway Lawn Tennis Club and St Luke’s Church.

Forest Heath House is accessed via a sweeping shingled driveway. The apartment has three private parking spaces. To the side, there are wooden numbered bin stores for each apartment with a further numbered brick built storage/bike shed accessed via secure private doors.

There is a pretty communal garden laid to lawn with surrounding borders containing an array of mature shrubs, trees and bushes and with a good degree of privacy.

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.
