Description

Fieldways is an attractive stone built house built of locally quarried Cotswold stone with painted timber casement windows, solid oak entrance door with stone pediment above, all under a reconstituted and concrete tiled roof. The property was extensively refurbished and enlarged about 20 years ago and the current owner has further improved the accommodation adding a superb Amdega orangery, a boot room and laundry room. The property is well presented and benefits from attractively laid out gardens. Further scope exists to increase the footprint of the property further implementing the existing planning consent. The arrangement of the accommodation is illustrated by the accompanying floor plan and briefly comprises:

• Welcoming reception hall with attractive staircase with full
height ceiling and guest cloakroom.
• Particularly attractive, well proportioned, double aspect drawing room with French doors and impressive inglenook fireplace.
• Elegant dining room ideal for formal entertaining.
• High quality handmade kitchen/breakfast room with painted cupboards and drawers with polished granite work surfaces, tiled flooring and range of integrated appliances and Belfast sink.
• Superb classically styled, painted Amdega orangery with raised terracotta tiled floor taking advantage of the fine aspect with doors leading out to a balcony with ornate railings with steps down to the terrace.
• Attractive snug with open fireplace sharing a back to back log burning stove with the kitchen.
• Impressive part-galleried landing with vaulted ceiling providing access to the principal bedroom accommodation.
• Well-proportioned triple aspect master bedroom suite with fireplace, recessed pine bookshelf and views over the gardens and countryside. A door connects through to a luxury en suite bathroom.
• Three further bedroom suites accessed from two staircases set out over two floors.
• Recently built boot room and laundry room with boiler cupboard.

Lying to the south east of the house is a superb double garage built of locally quarried stone under a concrete tiled roof with up and over double garage door. Electric light and power are connected. An external staircase with balcony at the rear of the building provides access to the studio flat which is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The flat was originally designed to provide housekeeper's accommodation. To the rear of the garage/flat is an enclosed private area of garden used for growing fruit and vegetables and cut flowers. Fieldways is approached through ornate electrically operated gates into a gravelled courtyard and a stone pathway leads to the entrance door. The walled gardens are delightful and enjoy a fine southerly view over the adjacent countryside.

Formal gardens lie directly to the front of the house and comprise a fine lawn, seating terrace off the drawing room and stocked with traditionally planted borders. Stone steps lead up to a small wild area with mown pathways with benches strategically placed to enjoy the vista along the garden. To the west of the house is a pergola providing dappled shade and a superb entertaining area with stone built barbeque with chimney and ample work surfaces.
