An iconic Grade II* Listed New Forest landmark that affords unsurpassed panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, The Solent and Isle of Wight.


SWAY 
Situated on the edge of the New Forest is the village of Sway, which sits adjacent to the southern side of the New Forest. From here the open forest offers many miles of unspoilt walking and riding. Sway railway station, which provides a mainline train service to London (Waterloo approximately 105 minutes) is less than a third of a mile away. For the yachtsman, the Georgian market town of Lymington (approximately 4 miles south east) offers a wide range of facilities including two marinas with visitor moorings on the river and at Town Quay. Lymington also offers a wide range of shopping facilities and a Charter Market every Saturday.

Set in a mainly lawned walled garden, the property features a fine enclosed heated swimming pool, a tennis court and an extensive range of garaging with a sizable home office.

The accommodation comprises a crucifix ground floor that provides for a characteristic dining hall, sitting room and kitchen with a gardenside conservatory. To one side, a spectacular octagonal tower (campanile) features a turning stairwell ascending a total of 14 floors topped with a distinctive cupola. The first 4 floors each feature a bedroom with en suite bathroom, with the remaining floors left unoccupied save for 3 of the upper floors currently Let to various telecommunications providers as an obvious site for their transmitters (the current commercial inco (truncated)
