Sauvey Castle Farmhouse is Grade II Listed and dates from the late 1700s. Stone built with a slate roof, the house is approached along a private drive sweeping from the north-west leading to a parking area to the east.
The house faces south and the front door opens onto a hallway with the main staircase ahead. To the left is the dining room which has French doors opening to the front terrace. To the right is the drawing room which has a working fire and French doors opening onto the front terrace.
The breakfast kitchen lies at the heart of the house, and the snug and the boot room with a WC run off it. The snug connects through to an extension which houses a downstairs bedroom with an ensuite and French doors leading to a small garden area with water feature and a utility room with another cloakroom. This in turn leads through to the dovecote which houses two offices, a kitchenette and a WC.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom is dual aspect and has storage cupboards and an ensuite bathroom. There are a further three bedrooms, two of which are ensuite, and a family bathroom on this floor. On the second floor, there are a further three bedrooms, one of which is a ‘walk through’.
To the rear of the house there is a gravelled dogproof courtyard bordered by the dovecote, a five bay carport and store rooms.
The storerooms connect to a stable block to the east of the house with nine stables, a tack room and feed room as well as a further storeroom and WC. External stairs lead to two first floor rooms which could be converted to provide annexe accommodation.
To the east of this building are a tennis court and a pond with a decked platform, and to the north east a large steel barn. To the north of the house is a manège. The gardens wrap around the house and have many diverse elements from yew topiary, lawns, a pond with decking, an orchard as well as a sheltered York stone paved terrace to the south of the house. The paddocks extend to the east and include a lake of just under half an acre.
Further adjacent pasture land could be made available.
