About this property

  • Dating from the 1660's, and with later editions, Linens Field is a most charming period property. Tucked away in Old Boars Hill, with attractive views, it would suit as a comfortable family home or, alternatively, as a weekend retreat from the hurly-burly of everyday life. There are four separate reception rooms, including a welcoming, wood panelled drawing room, together with a kitchen and downstairs cloakroom.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom has a separate dressing room and bathroom, the second bedroom has an adjoining nursery room, and there are two further bedrooms and additional bathrooms.

    The mature gardens are an attractive feature. A graveled driveway provides generous parking for several cars and leads to the garage. The gardens lie predominantly to the front and side of the property, and are laid to lawn, planted with a variety of trees, plants and shrubs, and have attractive views over fields beyond.

    Mains services connected. Gas heating.
