Field House is an immensely desirable country house enjoying a private position shared with one neighbouring barn conversion, situated off the main A456 Bewdley - Tenbury road within little more than five minutes drive from the centre of the Georgian riverside town of Bewdley, and ideally placed for commuters to the West Midlands conurbation.
The house is thought to date from the late 1700s and retains a great deal of charm and character, though the interior has been sympathetically improved and upgraded by the present owners in recent times to provide a spacious and well proportioned family home that successfully combines period features such as exposed timbers and a splendid Inglenook fireplace with a free flowing layout well suited to modern family living.
Set behind private security gates, the forecourt provides an attractive approach to the house with paved patio areas interspersed with shrubs and a small ornamental pond. The canopied porch entrance gives way to a wide solid oak main entrance door leading in to a welcoming reception hall with flag paved floor and doors leading off.
The lounge displays a number of exposed timbers whilst a splendid exposed brick Inglenook fireplace provides a fine focal feature, with log burning stove set on quarry tiled hearth and recessed twin window seats within. A further alcove area leads off the lounge, whilst a doorway leads through to the rear sitting room, providing a comfortable separate living room with doors to the garden.
The hub of the home is undoubtedly the magnificent open plan combined kitchen and split level dining room which measures almost 40ft from end to end. Arranged as two distinct areas, the dining area has a tiled floor, log burning stove and double doors out to the garden plus feature display aquarium available by separate negotiation.
The kitchen is fitted with a stylish custom built range of off white wall and base cabinets with contrasting black granite work surfaces incorporating a white double Belfast sink and a matching central island unit. There is also a useful pantry cupboard whilst bi-fold doors open out onto the patio terrace.
The excellent range of integrated appliances include wine chiller, AEG electric oven, electric 4-oven Aga, de Dietrich induction hob, Miele microwave/ grill, Miele coffee maker and Rangemaster American style fridge.
In all this wonderful space is a magnificent entertaining area ideal for parties.
From the front forecourt there is also a secondary reception hall with guest cloakroom and a good sized office: an ideal arrangement if receiving visitors on business.
There is also a laundry room giving direct access into the large double garage (18'8" long x 22'5" wide) plus adjacent open plan workshop area. The garage has twin electric roller shutter doors whilst outside there is very generous additional parking for numerous vehicles together with gateway, permitting vehicular access into the garden area if required.
To the first floor there are five principal bedrooms, the master bedroom presently in use as a suite of four inter-connecting rooms to include bedroom, sitting room (landing with spiral staircase down), dressing room (or potential sixth bedroom) and bathroom featuring wall and floor tiling plus suite comprising low level wc, vanity unit with hand basin and angular bathtub with mixer shower above plus chrome heated towel rail.
There is also a large family bathroom with clawfoot bath, low level wc, twin pedestal hand basin and exposed timbers, plus a separate wc for convenience, to include bidet and pedestal hand basin..
The other four bedrooms are all good double rooms with the second bedroom having an en-suite shower room to include wall and floor tiling, cubicle with mixer shower, low level wc and vanity unit with hand basin and cabinet below.
Outside, there is a delightful formal walled garden with paved sun terrace, block paved pathways with young box hedging, external carriage lanterns and an ornamental raised brick fish pond having cascade waterfall feature.
Beyond the walled garden are extensive level lawns with conifer hedged boundaries and a wonderful open skyline with open farmland adjoining.
Additionally to the edge of the front forecourt is an excellent range of brick and tiled former stable buildings with undoubted potential for a variety of uses subject to the requisite planning approval. These are arranged as three individual bays plus a wider double bay, in all measuring approximately 48ft wide x 18ft deep at the maximum point.
Mains electricity and water are both connected whilst drainage is to a cess pit. Additionally a number of photo-voltaic solar panels have been installed with the benefit of regular energy savings plus a payment from the governments feed-in tariff scheme.
Central heating is oil fired and double glazed windows are fitted throughout. The family bathroom, bedroom two en-suite and kitchen/dining room also have underfloor heating.
There is a comprehensive security alarm system with direct connection to the police.
