Welcome Home

Behind a long-established stone wall, solid oak gates open to a sweeping gravel driveway leading the eye to Field House, which is set back from the road in a spacious one acre plot with ample parking and wrapped up in verdant gardens with mature planting. Park up on the drive or in the handsome, detached timber-framed garage, before making your way along the path bordered by fragrant planting to the front door, which opens to a porch with hanging space for coats and scarves. Warmth emanates throughout the entrance hallway, with underfloor heating running throughout the ground floor.

Feast Your Eyes

Glazed double doors beckon you through into the open plan kitchen dining room. Cream cabinetry and drawers provide a profusion of storage, with quartz worktops adding a sophisticated feel and offering ample preparation space. Windows frame views out over the garden, with light flowing down from the skylight high above. Cook up a feast for friends, with appliances including a large cream Aga, separate induction hob and cooker. A sociable space for family and friends, with floor to ceiling windows and doors blurring the boundary between outdoors and in, the dining area is a natural hub.

Family Time

Relax and unwind in the sitting room, a spacious area for all the family, where a log-burning stove radiates warmth and cosiness from within its elegant, arched redbrick surround. Windows look out to the garden, easily accessed via glazed doors to two sides. Also to the ground floor, discover a guest cloakroom and a large laundry room with plenty of storage, plumbing for washer-dryer and a sink. A door from here provides access to the side of the home, making for swift entry and exit with muddy boots after an afternoon’s gardening or walk.

Light-Filled Living

As you ascend the oak and glass staircase to the first floor, a tall window delivers light and views through. From the landing, the first of the bedrooms can be found on the left, a spacious double with views extending over the garden to two sides. Across the landing a second double bedroom offers plenty of space for wardrobes and drawers, with views over the extensive front garden. Freshen up in the en suite, with wash basin, lavatory and shower.

Soak and Sleep

Enjoy a soothing soak in the large family bathroom. Tiled in buff shades, this room features a a generously sized, walk-in wet room-style shower, a deep double ended bath, wall mounted wash basin, lavatory and a dual fuel heated towel radiator. Blissful refuge awaits in the principal bedroom, where windows to two sides draw in light, with a full-length window overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. Served by its own private en suite with shower, wash basin and lavatory, this capacious suite provides a soothing sanctuary.

Nature Abounds

Outside, the secure gardens – rich in wildlife - envelope Field House. Mature hedging with established specimen trees, some planted in the 19th century, provide shelter and total privacy. Relax and unwind on the large, south facing patio, accessible from numerous points within the home, perfect for entertaining in summertime. The extensive lawns are ideal for the games of children and scampering paws of your four-legged friends, with walks in abundance on the doorstep.
