Swanwood Farm is a handsome and substantial late Victorian country house, dating from circa 1896 with later additions. The elegant, well-proportioned accommodation has a wealth of period features and is arranged over three floors.
The main features include:
Entrance porch opening into light and spacious entrance hall with stained glass windows, tiled floor, cloakroom and WC.
The drawing room 26'6 x 17'7 has a bay window to the front, a fireplace, and leads through to the study, with a pentagonal bay window.
From the hall, a door leads into the sitting room which also has a bay window to the front and in turn leads through to the wonderful open plan kitchen/breakfast room, which has recently been modernised and has two modern NEFF ovens and hobs, together with white units, granite work surfaces, space for American-style fridge freezer, central island unit and a tiled floor.
Beyond the kitchen/breakfast room is a superb open-plan sitting room and orangery. There is also a useful utility room with basin and door to the rear garden. Cloakroom.
The main staircase is accessed from the hall and rises to the first floor. The main bedroom is at the front of the house and has a balcony together with an en suite shower room with WC. The guest bedroom also has a balcony and an en suite bathroom with WC. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The second floor has four further bedrooms, three with useful eaves access, together with a storeroom in a turret and an attic store.
Swanwood House is accessed through electrically operated entrance gates over a long gravelled driveway which leads to the front of the house with ample parking and turning area. The drive continues round to the triple garage 28'6 x 27'10 with planning consent (Reference WD/2015/2472/F) to create a two bedroom annexe above.
The gardens and grounds form a wonderful setting to Swanwood Farm. A wide sandstone terrace at the south-east of the house is ideal for entertaining and gives wonderful views over the gardens and grounds to the unspoilt countryside beyond.
A path leads down to the all-weather tennis court with stone paved sitting area and substantial timber gazebo.
The land is divided into a number of large paddocks, together with an extensive area of attractive woodland underplanted with a mass of bluebells in Spring, and interspersed with various pretty woodland paths.
In all about 28.5 acres.
