This handsome family house dates back to the Edwardian period and retains much of the original period detail. One enters the house into a light ornate tiled central hallway off which all the ground floor rooms are accessible and elegant stairs lead to the first floor. To the left is a formal dining room with open fireplace and connecting door to the kitchen, and to the right a lovely sitting room with an angled box bay window and open fireplace. There is a large living room with sliding patio doors stepping out to the garden. The kitchen has a open plan breakfast area and there is separate utility room and cloak room.
The first floor has four generous bedrooms, all which have character and lovely views, there is an ensuite shower room off the rear bedroom and a family shower room (easily converted back to a bathroom) off the landing. Through the house there is delightful atmosphere which is enhanced by the lovely period features including ornate ceilings and elegant multipane bay windows. The house now could do with some updating here and there, but houses of such distinction as Field House are rarely brought to the market.
The house is approached up the elegant private road and sweeps into a shingle driveway providing generous parking and leading up to the double garage which is set back to the side of the house. There is side access on both sides of the house leading through to the beautiful rear garden which is a particularly fine feature of the property, with a paved patio area, and to either side are lovely mature boarders priding year-round colour and a peaceful and secluded backdrop to the house. The garden backs onto a lovely open field which completes the beautiful setting and was the inspiration for the name, Field House.
Northfield Avenue is a private no through road access from the heart of the village. Field House is located towards the far end and is one of the original houses built on the road.
