Description

Fieldway is an extended, remodelled and completely refurbished former 1960s house just requiring a few completion works to be carried out by the new owners. It is a deceptively spacious house offering flexible accommodation over two floors.

Particular features include: marble flooring throughout the dining room, kitchen, utility room and inner hall with underfloor heating (also underfloor heating over the first floor and ground floor wet room); engineered oak internal doors with chrome fittings; contemporary Italian radiators; wiring for integrated sound system including inset ceiling speakers in some rooms.

Accommodation

Front door with cut glass inserts and windows either side opens into a spacious Hallway with part pebble mosaic effect flooring around an inset brush mat, leading onto strip wood flooring. Contemporary Italian "tower" radiator. Opening to Inner Reception Hall and engineered oak panel doors to reception rooms/bedrooms and wet room.
Main Sitting Room with strip wood flooring, fireplace housing woodburning stove and bay window to the front garden. Wide opening to the dining room. Contemporary column radiator.

Dining room that is open plan to the Sitting Room and having bi-fold doors to the side garden seating area. Part glazed door to kitchen. Beautiful marble flooring with underfloor heating.

Well appointed and comprehensively fitted kitchen with granite worktops and various useful space saving cabinet interior fittings. Integrated Miele appliances include an induction hob with contemporary extractor hood over, conventional fan oven, steam oven, microwave oven, warming drawer and dishwasher. There is also a Panasonic American style fridge freezer with ice/water dispenser, Quooker "boiling" water tap and water softener. A long picture window looks out over the south facing side garden and a part glazed door leads out to the same. Continuation of marble flooring with underfloor hearting. Door to utility room.

Utility Room with matching units to those in the kitchen and having space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a further fridge/freezer if required. Continuation of marble flooring with underfloor heating. Opening to rear hall with coat/boot storage area, which in turn leads back around to the inner reception hall.

The inner Reception Hall has the solid bespoke oak staircase leading to the galleried first floor landing with large electronically operated Velux skylight overhead and understairs cupboard storing the Meagflow water cylinder. There is a space for a seating/study area in this hallway, which has marble flooring with underfloor heating and leads back around to the entrance hall.

There are two further rooms on the ground floor, which could be used as reception rooms or bedrooms depending on requirement. Both have strip wood flooring. The ground floor wet room and one of the bedroom/ reception rooms has yet to be plastered/decorated. The wet room components are purchased but not yet fitted.

Arranged over the first floor are two good sized double bedrooms with an outlook over the side south-facing garden. One has an adjoining dressing room. There is also a third bedroom, which does have restricted head room down one side but will fit a double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers in addition to the fitted wardrobe. This room also provides access to a spacious boarded loft. Engineered oak flooring throughout the first floor with underfloor heating.

The first floor shower room is predominantly fitted and in working order but requires the worktops to be fitted and decorative finishing touches to be completed. The corner shower is by World of Water and has multiple jets. Heated towel rail.

Outside

The property is located at the end of a privately owned track, leading to woodland beyond. Currently there is a gravel parking area at the rear of the house and a detached single garage but planning permission [16/02277/HOUSE] has been granted to site a new detached oak framed double bay garage with side store room at the front of the property with a new access driveway. This would replace the existing garage and the area behind the house could be turned into a further garden area.

The gardens wrap around the house on the south and east sides with a gravel pathway leading around the house and broadening to the south to provide a dining/barbeque area.

There is a large playing field with playground equipment only a few hundred yards from the property.
