Tenure: Freehold

An imposing and substantial (over 6,000 sq ft period dwelling) in extensive mature grounds on the outskirts of Chester with a separate detached 3 reception roomed 3 bedroomed Coach House, a range of traditional outbuildings with conversion potential and approximately 3.8 acres of land. The main house includes 4 Reception Rooms, 8/9 Bedrooms and 4 Bathrooms.

Believed in part to originate from the first half of the 17th century and understood to have been built for the Earl of Shrewsbury, Field House was subsequently redeveloped in the 1890's by a renowned Victorian Cheshire Architect, John Douglas. At Field House he added a second floor with Queen Anne style Dutch gables plus an appealing central bay to the principal elevation. The imposing and impressive symmetrical principal elevation has 2 bays flanked by an enclosed porch in an attractive fan like detail above a heavy paneled entrance door.

Field House occupies a wonderfully mature setting with established shrubbery, trees and an impressive open main lawn, providing a perfect backdrop. Located on the outskirts of Chester the house is within 2 miles of Chester City Centre and is located within comfortable reach of an extensive road network system, enabling the commuter ease of access to the area's leading commercial centres, including Liverpool and Manchester. In addition to its extensive retail and leisure facilities the historic city of Chester also has a mainline railway station with direct access to London Euston.

Internally the spacious accommodation is arranged over 3 floors plus cellars below. Extending to over 6,000 sq ft the house offers a degree of versatility and an arrangement of rooms which lends itself well to family occupation. The large paneled entrance door opens into a porch from which a part glazed door leads through to an elegant Entrance Hall. From here a staircase rises to the First Floor and beneath the stairs is access to the aforementioned cellars with vaulted ceilings.

The Reception Rooms at the front of the house are arranged as an impressive Drawing Room and formal Sitting Room and are of a similar size. The adjacent Dining Room adds to the trio of wonderful principal reception rooms which lend themselves well to entertaining. Beyond this area is a rear Hall which serves a Utility Room, Cloak Room with wc and a ground floor Guest Bedroom with En-suite Shower Room. Worthy of particular mention is the large open plan atrium style dining area and Kitchen, which must be viewed. Off this impressive and naturally light space is a fourth Reception/Family Room plus a Study with the Kitchen also providing access to a second staircase and large walk-in pantry store.

The stairs from the Hall lead to a half landing which serves 2 Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. The stairs continue to a naturally light and spacious Principal Landing which serves 3 further Bedrooms including the vast Principal Bedroom with walk in Dressing Room, an independent staircase access to the Ground Floor and a sumptuous En-Suite Bathroom. The accommodation concludes at second floor level with 4 good sized Bedrooms and a well appointed Family Bathroom.

Externally Field House is approached through a stone pillared and remote operated gated entrance with a forked driveway circling a delightful central formal lawn. The lawn is fringed with established borders containing shrubbery and mature trees. The extensive and private grounds are particularly salient features of Field House and viewing is highly recommended. There is a further large section of lawn to the rear plus a sizeable paved area providing excellent space for outdoor dining/entertaining (this area also includes a covered bar/barbeque area). The driveway continues to the rear and provides access to

 

DETACHED COACH HOUSE This conversion of a traditional outbuilding provides a valuable property which could be utilised for the accommodation of relatives to provide a valuable income stream or to be sold as a separate dwelling. The Coach House includes a spacious Entrance Hall, Cloak Room with wc, a large Lounge, separate Dining Room, separate Study and a Kitchen. There are 3 Bedrooms at first floor level all of which have an en-suite facility. Adjacent to the Coach House is a large range of traditional brick and slate outbuildings which offer tremendous potential for conversion (subject to planning consent) to provide further ancillary living space. These are currently utilised for garaging/storage.

The area in total extends to 3.8 acres or thereabouts. There is also a tennis court.
