Redwing Farm is situated on the outskirts of Sway village, out on the open forest in an area between Durnstown and Shirley Holms, the property being situated approximately 2 miles north of the Georgian market town of Lymington renowned for its river, marinas and yacht clubs.

Lymington, Brockenhurst and Sway provide a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.

This superb property has evolved from a pretty, double fronted cob cottage into a superb family home offering well proportioned living accommodating throughout. Whilst the original cottage façade has been retained, further additions fuse seamlessly together creating a free flowing layout befitting the needs of a modern day family. The triple aspect sitting room sits centrally within the ground floor layout, providing views across the land and access via French doors onto the terrace. Set off the sitting room is a stunning dining room formed from the entire ground floor layout of the original Cob cottage. This attractive room can easily accommodate a substantial dining table for special occasions and features a wood burning stove set within a brick recess and Travertine tiled flooring. Both the the sitting room and dining room also feature beamed ceilings. The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room features a range of fitted wall and base units to three sides, roll top work surfaces and built-in appliances including a double oven and inset gas hob. Further benefits include an Aga cooker set within a tiled recess, a pantry cupboard, an island unit with part granite work surface and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. From the breakfast area, French doors open out onto a paved sun terrace overlooking the grounds. Adjoining the kitchen area is a good size utility room with fitted units, storage cupboard and a separate cloakroom. Further rooms to the ground floor include an excellent, multi-purpose family room with beamed ceiling and rear access door and a useful ground floor bedroom/study with en-suite shower room. A central stairwell ascends to the first floor landing which links to all the first floor bedrooms as well as the family bathroom.The master bedroom features a range of built-in wardrobes extending the full depth of the room and a large window offering elevated views across the grounds to the south. The en-suite bathroom is fitted with a shower cubicle, hand wash basin and WC. There are four additional bedrooms to this level, two of which feature en-suite shower rooms comprising shower cubicles, hand wash basins and wc’s.

The property is approached via a track leading off Pitmore Lane, down to a driveway offering off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the barn complex. The grounds are apportioned into different areas of paddocks, with a separate, private garden accessed from the rear of the property. Set to the side of the main property is a magnificent barn complex extending to approximately 3000 square feet in size. The barn is configured as three large open bays and an enclosed multi-purpose area with separate office. However, this area offers scope for a number of different uses (subject to the relevant consents being granted). In total, the gardens and grounds extend to just under 3 acres.
