3 bedroom semi-detached house for sale

Sway Road, Brockenhurst SO42 7UL

£650,000 via Spencers, Brockenhurst: 01590 631661

A charming old railway signalmans house built in the mid 1800’s, this semi-detached Victorian railway cottage is set in a tucked away position close to the village and open forest.



The property is situated at the end of a sweeping driveway set off the much sought after location of Sway Road. The open forest is within a short walk and the village centre of Brockenhurst is approximately one mile away. Brockenhurst offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes), an 18 hole championship golf course and a good local community of shops and restaurants. The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the east with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. Approximately 4 miles to the south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and its famous Saturday county market. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.

Forming one of just two properties, this delightful cottage is something of a rarity, enjoying a unique position set just off the popular location of Sway Road, in a private semi rural location.

The property offers well-appointed accommodation throughout having been both enlarged and completely refurbished by the current owner, whilst retaining many character features.

On the ground floor, a newly built boot room with beautiful stone flooring opens up to an entrance hall linking to a study/bedroom three and a newly fitted bespoke country style kitchen fitted with a range of modern hand painted units, stone work tops, ceramic butler sink and top of the range appliances. The vaulted ceiling with two velux windows creates a spacious and light room and a stable door gives direct access into the garden.

The kitchen opens into the sitting room featuring an exposed brick chimney breast and wood burning stove set on a stone hearth. The sitting room in turn links to a fantastic garden/dining room which provides a wonderful space for entertaining and enjoying the beautiful grounds.

A turning stairwell with original balustrade leads up to the first floor landing. From here, there is access to a modern family bathroom and two bedrooms, both of which feature vaulted ceilings and cast iron open ornamental fireplaces.



A shared gravel driveway with privately owned garage leads down to the cottage and provides off road parking.

The stunning grounds that surround the cottage are a real joy, creating a wonderful woodland ambience and a real sense of feeling at one with nature.

The garden is predominantly laid to lawn and apportioned into different areas including a wild meadow garden, landscaped pond area, formal lawn garden and vegetable plots.

Set towards the end of the plot is a range of storage sheds, a greenhouse and a fantastic summer house with decked terrace surround for recreation.

The grounds are flanked by established tree and hedge borders with a number of specimen plants set within.
