Property Description

Full description

A charming country cottage which has been sympathetically enlarged and refurbished from its original format to form a fine family home set in delightful grounds, adjacent to the beautiful St. Luke's Church, on the south side of Sway village. Energy Efficiency Rating: D

The property is set at the top of Church Lane, next to St. Luke’s Church, in the ever popular village of Sway and within a short distance of 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, doctors 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.
The original cob cottage is believed to date back to c. 1650 and has been extended to now provide accommodation extending to approximately 1333 sq.ft. set across two floors, combining period characteristics with modern fittings.

To the ground floor, an entrance porch leads to a stable door opening into a cottage style sitting room with a traditional full width natural brick Inglenook style fireplace, wooden floors and a stairwell rising to first floor. Adjacent to the sitting room is a study with tiled underfloor heating and an impressive kitchen breakfast area fitted with a range of oak wall and base units, granite worksurfaces and a Rangemaster cooker. Open and connecting to the kitchen/breakfast room is a superb garden room/dining area overlooking the rear garden, with both the kitchen/breakfast room and garden/dining room benefiting from terracotta tiled floors and doors opening onto the rear terrace.

To the first floor, a landing area links to the master bedroom with built-in wardrobes, two further double aspect bedrooms overlooking the front and rear gardens and a modern family bathroom.
To the front of the property is a driveway providing access to an integral garage. Set alongside the driveway and defined by an attractive wrought iron fence to the front is an area of landscaped garden interspersed with specimen planting and a separate water feature. Gated access to the side leads to the large rear terrace which wraps around the garden/dining room and extends down to a large wood store and external wet room. This area makes a wonderful place for entertaining or al-fresco dining and adjoins the main garden area which is mainly laid to lawn with walled and timber fence boundaries. Set to the back of the plot is an additional raised decked terrace and timber playhouse.
