THIS handsome farmhouse with stunning grounds boasts its own lake, tennis court and party barn and is on the market for £2 million.

Surrounded by farmland and set in the South Downs National Park, Cott Street Farm is at the end of a no through lane in Swanmore and is surrounded by farmland.

The current owners have lived at the property for nearly 30 years and have extended it to create the spacious drawing room with double doors leading on to the terrace. Above this is the master bedroom with lovely views over the gardens and lake.

A renovated barn with bar provides an ideal party space or could also be used as a workshop or for storage. There is also a separate office barn.

Cott Street Farm also enjoys a double car port with storage, a garden store, green house and vegetable garden and a chicken enclosure.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property, boasting a croquet lawn and all-weather tennis court.

At the front of the house, there is a gravel parking and turning area with a central water feature, and there are well stocked borders either side of the front door.

Originally a farmhouse that had a Georgian style facade added, it is constructed of brick elevations under a tile roof.
