This country house for sale sits in nearly 12 acres of grounds - including its own tennis court. 

Sleepy Oaks, in Tilford, was once an ornamental building and was sympathetically converted into a country house several years ago.

The agent commented: “Sleepy Oaks is a most attractive country home having historically been a former pavilion, the property was sympathetically converted and extended into a unique country house a number of years ago.
