Mayfield House (0.56 acres)
Mayfield House is a former manse house which was built in 1893 from sandstone beneath a pitched slate roof. The house is well proportioned and has a symmetrical façade with two bay windows which is typical of the Victorian era. In addition to a complete refurbishment of the main part of the house, a large extension has been added to almost double the ground floor accommodation. Where possible the original features, such as the panelled and stained glass doors, have been retained and restored, and these are complemented by hardwood flooring, a beautifully crafted timber staircase, a fully modernised kitchen and a new family bathroom. The house has been neutrally decorated with Farrow & Ball colours to give it a fresh contemporary finish.
The dining kitchen is a particular feature of the house as it is well proportioned with full height windows bringing in the natural light. French doors lead out to the decked terrace creating an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. There are two further reception rooms providing flexibility for formal and informal entertaining.
The principle bedroom accommodation lies on the first floor whilst an additional bedroom on the ground floor is perfect for guests or elderly relatives.
Mayfield House sits in approximately 0.57 acres with mature Sequoia trees and a Monkey Puzzle tree with seating area to the front of the house. The garden has been recently landscaped to include a decked terrace with pergola to the east of the house . The grounds/garden is enclosed by a stone wall/hedge with a pillared gate entrance. There is a poly tunnel for growing vegetables and a double garage to the back of the house.
