An enchanting country residence with stabling and a hard tennis court, set in just over 10 acres
Approached by a private driveway, Fields Farm is a charming family home set in 16 acres with beautiful gardens and pastureland, a hard tennis court and stables. Accommodation is laid out over two floors with all the principal reception rooms interconnecting making Fields Farm a great home for entertaining.
Roses and hydrangea climb the east facing facade where the front door opens into the entrance hall with vintage tiles, exposed beams, the main staircase and W/C off. The L-shaped drawing room is spacious, with an inglenook style open sfireplace, inset with a Jetmaster system, and double doors opening into an impressive sitting room which boasts solid oak flooring, a multi-fuel Charnwood stove, a mezzanine floor providing a gallery currently used as a music space and two sets of French doors leading to a sheltered terrace. Oak flooring continues to the dining room which has two sets of French doors opening to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is equipped with fitted units and cupboards, SMEG gas hob and a walk-in larder. There is also a utility room with wine and freezer storage beyond.
On the first floor are the principal bedroom suite, three further double bedrooms (one with ensuite, the other two with a Jack and Jill facility), a fifth bedroom/study and an adaptable boxroom.
Fields Farm occupies a wonderful rural position surrounded by attractive gardens that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. The south facing covered terrace, framed by a climbing rose and planted with lavender, overlooks the garden. Wisteria adorns the west side of the house.
The garden is well stocked with mature shrubs and trees including rhododendrons, azaleas, japonica, magnolia, buddleia, roses and weeping willow to name but a few. There is also a pond.
Adjacent to the house is a stone outbuilding, currently a wood and coal store and separate workshop, which is double glazed and connected to gas supply, with potential to be used as a home office. There is a range of timber stables with concrete flooring, arranged as two stables, large store area and equipment room.
A hard tennis court with viewing patio and solid slate top table and a stone built double garage complete the amenities.
Fields Farm benefits from a traditional brick outhouse to the rear of the garden, which subject to the necessary planning permissions, provides the opportunity for redevelopment for a number of uses.
