Field House is a fine family home set in a quiet, private position, surrounded by fields, just a short walk from Hurley village. The property is approached via a country lane and entered through secure electric gates on to a gravelled area.
Beneath the open sided covered porch, the front door opens into the entrance hall where stairs climb to the first floor galleried landing and the principal reception areas may be accessed. The drawing room is an elegant room situated at the front of the property and enjoys a triple aspect with views of the grounds. To the far end is a set of French doors opening on to a patio and garden beyond. The triple aspect dining room (currently laid out as a games room) is found at the rear providing access to the garden and patio. The heart of the house is found in the kitchen/breakfast room that is open plan to the family room. The kitchen has a range of fitted units and an equipped free standing island. This contemporary kitchen was designed to accommodate both cooking and entertaining. Five-fold doors open directly on to the patio and rear garden which, in the summer time, extends the kitchen into the garden. Large picture windows in the kitchen and family area flood these rooms with natural light. The utility room is located off the kitchen and provides direct access to the heated integral double garage. The first floor accommodates four generously sized bedrooms that all look out over open fields. Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom enjoy en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom serves the two remaining bedrooms. There is also an office/study located on the first floor. It should be noted that the house was internally modernised in 2006, providing new electrics and plumbing.
