An unspoilt Arts and Crafts style country house in a superb wooded setting.
Fieldhead is one of the most outstanding houses on the Wirral. It stands at the end of a wonderful sweeping tree-lined drive in a beautiful setting framed by mature woodland. It has only come to the market once in its history and has been in the current owner's family since 1968.
It is an elegant house in red brick beneath a Westmoorland slate roof, with large sash windows and attractive chimneys and eaves detailing.
At the front of the house double doors open into a porch with steps up to an impressive reception hall, serving the main reception rooms and with stairs, with wide oak treads, to the first floor. The hall features original wood flooring and an open fire creating a welcoming ambience.
The drawing room is a lovely light room with windows to two aspects and a fireplace. Between the drawing room and dining room is a study and on the other side of the hall is a cloakroom and WC and a boot room and butler's pantry.
At the far end of the hall is a morning room with a door to the kitchen which offers floor and wall mounted storage units and a range cooker. Beyond the kitchen is a pantry and laundry as well as a gardener's WC, coal store, potting shed and internal door to the triple garage. On the lower ground floor is a substantial cellar, consisting of three separate rooms.
The first floor is served by two staircases, the main front stairs and a servant's staircase near the kitchens. The first floor landing is a generous width and there is a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom and dressing room, 5 further bedrooms, 2 family bathrooms, a WC and linen room. On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms, a play room and bathroom.
The spacious triple garage is accessed through double doors with pedestrian access from a small courtyard at the end of the house.
The gardens and grounds are a most attractive feature of the property, with extensive lawns, a formal box edged area and hard landscaping close to the rear elevation and a back drop of rhododendrons and other flowering shrubs and plants. The whole area is framed by a variety of mature trees forming a most attractive wooded belt offering privacy and security.
This is one of the most special houses on the Wirral. I love the natural light and calm surroundings.Charlie Kannreuther
