About this property

  • Built in 1947 as a farm manager's home, Mayfield House sits in an elevated position overlooking fields and the village beyond. Since then the house has been sympathetically extended and added to in a number of ways to create an imposing yet private family house in an enviable position. The house has been decorated in a subtle palette of contemporary colours to create a calm and light interior.

    The well-presented accommodation is set out over three floors. On the ground floor is a welcoming hall, well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with an excellent range of cabinets and an Aga, sitting room with log burning stove, family room and generous conservatory. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with lovely rural views. The principal bedroom has a Juliette balcony, fitted wardrobes and an en suite. The family bathroom is spacious with high quality fittings. Stairs lead up to the second floor bedroom with useful storage cupboards and eaves storage.

    The double garage has a useful utility area, and stairs up to a lovely room with shower room attached. The mature gardens surround the property on all sides and extend to about 0.28 of an acre. Automatic timber gates across the driveway open to a large area of gravel for parking and access to the front of the garage. Alongside this is a well kept lawn with many mature trees and shrubs, all edged by post-and-rail fences. At one side of the house, adjacent to the sitting room, is a large paved terrace with a timber pergola above, retained by a dry stone wall. More terrace space is offered around the conservatory and leads from the kitchen door to the utility and annexe. A useful area alongside the garage is hidden behind timber gates where there is space for bins, the large fuel oil

Mayfield House is a 'does what it says on the tin' house but my favourite thing about the house are the lovely views across adjoining fields.
