Sweepstakes Farmhouse has appealing elevations of mellow brick with a pattern of burnt headers in Flemish bond with a dentil cornice under a clay tile roof with a central stack.
The main entrance is at the rear with a covered porch leading to the central hall, with tiled floor and cloakroom off. To the right is the kitchen/breakfast room, which is beautifully fitted with a range of cream cabinets with granite work surfaces and fitted appliances, including electric oven, steamer and microwave. There is an oil-fired Rayburn in the fireplace. A large utility room is adjacent.
The sitting room has great character with exposed timbers and a most attractive inglenook fireplace. The dining room is similarly beamed with a fireplace. The study has a modern fitted desk and useful storage; the room has views down the garden.
The lovely bright galleried landing enjoys a fine view and leads to the master and guest bedrooms, both with en suites. There are two further first floor bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with roll-top bath.
From the landing stairs rise to the second floor, where there are two bedrooms and a shower room.
A brick wall marks the boundary with the lane and a five bar gate opens to a gravel drive which passes round the south west of the house to the rear. The front and side gardens are lawned with some shrubs and roses providing interest. There is a large paved terrace at the rear with brick retaining wall and nearby a small outbuilding with store and WC.
The drive sweeps round with a large parking and turning area and access to the magnificent new cart lodge. This has much oak detailing with three open bays and enclosed store. There is planning permission to convert the first floor to a studio with access via an external staircase.
The rear gardens are initially lawn with some fine specimen trees, and beyond a lovely cobnut plant with a central open area.
