Swaites Farm

Set proudly within its own grounds, Swaites Farm is a substantial recently refurbished country house with Victorian origins. The property has recently been subject to an extensive and careful scheme of renovation and improvements, under the guidance Nye Saunders Architects. This has included a major reconfiguration of the house, the creation of the housekeeper's wing, extensions to the property as well as the renovation of the cottage and the construction of a new stable courtyard and extensive equestrian facilities.

The house is approached through electrically operated gates with a gravel drive meandering to the property. Internally, the property has a grand reception hall with an elegant central staircase off which there are double doors leading to the drawing room and dining room as well access through to the study and inner hall. The informal living space lies beyond and includes a large kitchen/breakfast room, well-appointed family room, sitting room and conservatory. In addition there is also an extensive utility space in the form of a boot room, pantry and larder.

On the first floor the principal bedroom is located to the front of the property and has an adjoining dressing room leading through to a well equipped bathroom. In addition there are a further five bedrooms all with adjoining high quality bathrooms.
Attached to the house, but entirely self-contained with its own front door, is the housekeeper's wing with an open plan living room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Swaites Farm Cottage

The cottage is located across the driveway from the main house and has also been subject to an extensive renovation. It comprises of a hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom and has its own private garden.

Equestrian Facilities

There is a newly constructed stable courtyard providing exceptional equestrian facilities including ten loose boxes, a feed room, tack room, blanket drying room, tractor shed, wash down box, barn and stores. In addition there is a horse walker and
an outdoor Manège. Much of the grounds are divided into paddocks, each with post and rail fencing and automatic water troughs.

Garden and Grounds

Swaites Farm is approached over a sweeping gravel driveway which leads through the beautifully maintained grounds to a parking and turning area to the front of the property. A spurred driveway continues to the back of the house where there is extensive garaging and parking as well as secondary access to the lane.

The gardens surround the property and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging providing a simple and classic outlook with a large degree of privacy. To the east of the house there is a heated swimming pool with pool house and a part-walled garden which has been beautifully designed with a greenhouse, vegetable garden and a selection of specimen trees.

The land is split almost equally on either side of the lane with four large paddocks to the south and east of the house together with some woodland whilst to the north west are four very large paddocks and a small holding paddock.
