An impressive Victorian country home with four reception rooms and six bedrooms, enjoying just over an acre of gardens and grounds. The property is situated on the outskirts of Sway village with its mainline station to London Waterloo, and within easy reach of the renowned sailing town of Lymington.

The front door leads into a glazed entrance porch with attractive diamond windows and quarry tiled floor. Glazed double doors then lead into the reception hall with pattern tiled floor, an understairs storage cupboard with stairs to the first floor and a cloakroom on the right hand side with WC and pedestal wash hand basin. The reception hall gives access to the main reception rooms, with the study on the left hand side enjoying a quarry tiled floor, attractive arched windows and a stained glass window looking back through into the entrance lobby. On the left is also a morning room/library with attractive bay window, an open fireplace with ornate surround, and a range of adjustable book shelves. Directly ahead from the hall is the sitting room (which was originally two rooms) having wood strip flooring, together with a fabulous carved Jacobean open fireplace, a square bay window giving lovely west facing views overlooking the garden and a French door at one end leading out onto the garden. A further door from the reception hall then leads to the kitchen and breakfast room. The lovely kitchen comprises a range of floor and wall mounted units incorporating a four oven gas fired Aga with two hot plates and a warming plate, a stainless steel sink to one side, a separate four ring gas hob and electric Neff under oven, a stainless steel one-and-a-half bowl sink unit with single drainer and mixer tap, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. Tiled flooring runs throughout the kitchen area where there is also a walk-in larder with shelving. A doorway then leads through to the breakfast room which has an alcove with a fitted gas log effect wood burner and a stripped timber door with leaded light opening out onto the garden. A further door from the kitchen leads into the rear porch where there is ample coat hanging and storage space and a stable door to the garden. A door then opens into the utility room which has space and plumbing for a washing machine and the wall mounted gas fired Valiant boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating.

The straight-run staircase with ornate turned spindles leads to the landing with access to bedroom six. Three steps then lead to the main landing where there are four further bedrooms. Bedrooms two and three are double rooms and enjoy lovely bay windows overlooking the garden. Bedrooms four and five are also double rooms. There is a family bathroom with a pedestal wash hand basin, a large ceramic bath with mixer taps and shower attachment, a low-level WC, a linen cupboard and an airing cupboard with hot water tank. A staircase from the first floor leads up to the second floor where there is the master bedroom suite enjoying a lovely outlook with fireplace and a walk-in dressing room with built-in hanging and shelving. Adjacent to the bedroom is a wet room with ornately patterned tiled floor, WC with concealed cistern and wall mounted wash hand basin. There is also access for under eaves storage.

The property is approached from Arnewood Bridge Road via a five bar gate leading to a large gravel driveway with turnaround space and parking for several vehicles. N.B.
