    An exceptional Grade II Listed Cotswold house with a delightful rural aspect

    About this property

    • Fieldside House is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed house which dates back to the 17th Century. The house has been completely renovated by the present owners who have also sympathetically enlarged to the rear so as to provide a superb kitchen/breakfast room which looks out over pastureland. On the opposite side of the house a timber framed summer dining room has been added and again has a delightful aspect and direct access into the garden.

      Internally the front door opens into a generous sized reception hall with fireplace, ceiling beam and stone mullioned windows which are also evident throughout the house. Approached off the hall is the dining room with fireplace. The room connects with the drawing which in turn opens out into the oak framed, vaulted summer room. The drawing room possesses a fireplace with wood burning stove.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is an excellent space, naturally well lit and includes an eating area from which three French doors open out onto the west facing garden terrace. The kitchen area includes wall and floor cupboards and a Belfast sink. A door leads into the utility room off which is the cloakroom.

      On the first floor there is a particularly good sized master bedroom suite (originally two bedrooms) which incorporates an en suite bathroom with a separate shower. There is a further bedroom and en suite bathroom on this floor. The main staircase continues up to the third bedroom having exposed timbers and its own shower room.

      The level and mainly walled garden has been landscaped and provides a very attractive setting as well as plenty of parking space. Close to the entrance is the double garage with work space and a staircase leading up to a studio room. It is thought that self contained living space could be provided subject to the necessary consents being obtained. Between the garage and the house is an Arts and Crafts inspired summerhouse with panelled walls creating a light and airy office.
