Description

Situated on the western edge of the popular village of Newick, Fairseat House is an elegant family home dating from the early 1900s. While benefitting from all the classic character features in keeping with its age such as sash windows, working fireplaces and high ceilings, the house has recently been the subject of refurbishment and re-decoration and is beautifully presented: improvements including newly fitted period-style white bathroom suites, a renovated kitchen, new carpeting and oak flooring; the house has also been insulated and the facade re-rendered. The floor plans that follow give an excellent overview of the full extent of the house, which is arranged over three floors and extends to over 4,500 square feet.

Of particular note are the four elegant formal reception rooms (including the study), three of which have original, working fireplaces; the south-facing orangery is ideal for use as a games room. The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of wooden units with solid wood worktops, a two-oven Aga and plenty of space for a breakfast table. There are four generous bedrooms on the first floor, including the master bedroom with its large en suite dressing room and shower room. The three further bedrooms are served by one en suite bathroom, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. Bedrooms five and six, together with an en suite bathroom and a large attic room, are on the second floor and offer excellent guest accommodation.

Outside
Fairseat House is approached from the road via a gated gravel driveway, which leads to the attached single garage; the property is well set back from the road, sitting centrally within its gardens. There is gated access around both sides of the house; to the east opening to a herb garden with greenhouse and small garden shed. The attractive, mature and well-enclosed south-facing rear garden is of particular note: a stone terrace extends across the rear of the house, part covered by a timber pergola. Wide steps descend to an expanse of flat lawn, to one side of which is a timber garden/tractor store. The fence-enclosed heated swimming pool lies in the south-eastern corner of the garden; in the other corner is a second timber outbuilding housing the pool equipment.

Square Footage: 4,505 sq ft
Acreage: 0.6 Acres
