The beautifully landscaped and manicured garden and grounds of Field House are a particularly strong and compelling attribute.

The majority of the acreage has been manicured and beautifully mown, but would lend itself readily to grazing with the installation of some fencing. The property is currently surrounded by rabbit fencing.
