Field House is a magnificent period farmhouse which caters beautifully for modern family living. The home is packed full of charming character features including beautiful timbers, delightful period fireplaces and a superb spiral staircase.

This wonderful period detail marries perfectly with high-quality contemporary bathrooms and an amazing open-plan family kitchen.

The overall footprint of accommodation is impressive and very versatile, ideal for large families or multi-generational occupation and is complemented by extensive garaging, beautiful grounds and a large brick outbuilding ripe for conversion to office/studio space or ancillary accommodation (subject to planning).

The property is well set back from the road and approached by a shared driveway which also services the neighbouring property. An impressive gated entrance with lighting gives way to the large sweeping driveway which caters for several vehicles including caravans, motorhomes and the like.
The driveway culminates in a large double garage which is accessed via two roller shutter doors and features an incredibly lofty ceiling, power, and lighting and opens beautifully onto an adjoining workshop.

To the front of the farmhouse is a delightful courtyard garden laid to stone paving with an inset pond bordered by Cotswold stone walling. This area has mature plants and trees and a gate leading out to the rear gardens.

A lovely covered porch with a stone seat provides access to the main front door which opens to a welcoming hallway.

Entrance hallway
The entrance hallway features fantastic flagstone flooring, exposed timbers, wall lights and doors leading to the living room and kitchen.

Living room
The main living room consists of two sections partially divided, one a cosy snug area and the other a light and airy sitting room.

The snug area features a myriad of exposed timbers, an Inglenook fireplace housing a 'Clearview' wood-burning stove, and a useful recess ideal as a library or study space.
The adjoining sitting room has downlighters and French doors opening beautifully onto the rear garden.

At the heart of the property is a stunning dining kitchen which cannot fail to impress in terms of size or quality and offers an amazing space ideal for the modern family.
The kitchen area has a large central island with a granite top, inset butlers sink and storage underneath. There are an array of fitted appliances on offer including an electric Aga, oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and wine fridge.

The kitchen also has tiled flooring with underfloor heating, a useful larder cupboard, down lighters and bi-fold doors which open onto the amazing formal gardens.

At one end of the kitchen is also a dining and/or living area with French doors onto the garden and a fireplace housing a 'Clearview' wood-burning stove.

The ground floor benefits from having a secondary hallway which is ideal for those wanting dual occupancy. This additional hall is accessed via a door from the courtyard and has tiled flooring, steps leading to the kitchen and doors leading to the study, utility and downstairs cloakroom/WC. There is also an elegant spiral staircase providing a second access point to the first-floor accommodation.

Study and utility
The study is nicely tucked away in a quiet corner of the ground floor whilst the utility room has wall and base cupboards, a work surface with an inset sink drainer, space/plumbing for appliances, a boiler cupboard and doors leading to the garden and a double garage.

First floor
The first-floor accommodation is similarly spacious and full of character, with great views of the surrounding countryside to be enjoyed from many of the rooms.
With two sets of stairs accessing the first floor this is an ideal arrangement for those wanting multi-generational living, especially as two of the bedrooms have their own bathroom facilities.

Master bedroom
The impressive main bedroom is incredibly spacious and light with tasteful contemporary decor and comprises two windows with rural views, exposed beams and a doorway leading to an adjoining study landing/library.

This study landing is a great place to sit and relax with a book and has doors leading to a dressing room and shower room, the former with comprehensive fitted wardrobe space to one wall and a door leading out to an external staircase which rises up from the front of the property.

The shower room has been recently refitted to an excellent contemporary standard and comprises tiled walls, a shower cubicle, down lighters, a vanity unit and an airing cupboard.

Guest bedroom
There are four other bedrooms on the first floor, including a great guest suite which could also be used as an alternative master bedroom if so desired.

This spacious double room is serviced by an excellent en suite shower room and has delightfully exposed timbers and splendid views of the grounds and countryside beyond.
The accompanying en suite is very well appointed and includes underfloor heating, shower cubicle, 'Travertine' style tiling, vanity unit and Victorian style radiator/towel rail combo.

Further bedrooms
The three remaining bedrooms can all accommodate a double bed and have plenty of exposed timbers along with downlighters.

Family bathroom
These are serviced by a beautifully presented family bathroom which features a freestanding rolltop bath, period style washstand, underfloor heating, 'Travertine' style tiling, down lighters and radiator/towel rail combo.

A nicely styled separate WC completes the extensive first-floor accommodation.
Bedroom four

The fourth bedroom is a versitile good sized bedroom which is currenlty being used as a hobby room.

Gardens and grounds
The grounds of Field House are absolutely stunning and are a credit to the current owners, totalling around one acre and offering an excellent blend of formal landscaped gardens and large family-friendly lawns.

The gardens are completely private and adjoin the countryside on several sides. Directly to the rear of the house are truly stunning Italian-style walled gardens, akin to something you might see at an arboretum.

Comprising stone paved patio ideal for al fresco dining, interlocking paved pathways with neatly kept box hedging dividing up sweeping lawned areas, with an elegant waterfall in one corner descending into a pond with pebbled borders and mature plants.

Another corner of this garden is devoted to a sheltered seating area with accompanying barbeque and summerhouse, the latter with power.

A gate in the wall leads onto the rest of the grounds which are made up of large lawns enclosed by mature hedging and with a shed and vegetable patch.

To complete the package there is a substantial outbuilding tucked away in the corner of the grounds bordering the front courtyard. This sturdy brick outbuilding with a pitched tiled roof offers fantastic square footage for storage and is ripe for conversion if required, subject to securing relevant planning permissions.

It has excellent scope to be studio or office space and even potentially a self-contained ancillary dwelling.

The property has oil-fired central heating and private septic tank drainage. There is mains electricity and water and a newly installed alarm system.
