About This Property

A beautiful detached period house offering generous 5 bedroom accommodation, set in stunning gardens and grounds of about 1.6 Acres in a rural but accessible location. EPC: Band F

Believed to date from the late 19th Century, Fieldways is a much loved family home with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Substantially built with stone and rendered elevations set beneath a tiled roof, the property offers generous accommodation with a peaceful outlook over its own superb garden and grounds and enjoys a high degree of privacy. Entering the house you are drawn through the hallway to a lovely sun room giving an immediate sight of the garden. The ground floor provides four reception rooms with a triple aspect sitting room having french doors into the garden, a cosy snug and separate dining and breakfast room, creating flexibility for anyone wishing to work from home. Finally there is a well fitted kitchen, separate utility and cloakroom. At first floor level the master bedroom, with en-suite shower room, overlooks the garden and there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with bedrooms four and five, also doubles, on the second floor. The property is double glazed throughout and heating is provided by an external oil fired boiler to radiators with multifuel stoves in the sitting and dining rooms.
The property is approached from an unsurfaced lane where double gates give access to an extensive gravelled parking area and single garage. The gardens form a perfect setting for this property and have been developed over many years with both formal and informal areas. There are some magnificent specimen trees, sweeping lawns and abundantly stocked herbaceous borders together with a kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds, large number of fruit trees and a substantial polytunnel with light and irrigation. In the past the vendors have kept both pigs and goats and there is an extensive poultry run. A number of small outbuildings include two greenhouses, a range of useful stores at the rear of the garage and a delightful former beach hut. The whole plot is believed to extend to an estimated 1.6 Acres.

The property enjoys a private location approached over an unmade country lane with traditional landscape all around. Although secluded it is by no means isolated being less than 1 mile from the small town of Chard, with a good range of daily amenities, and some 6 miles from Crewkerne where there is the benefit of a Waitrose supermarket and main line rail link to London Waterloo. To the South lies the World Heritage Jurassic Coast with delightful coastal towns like Lyme Regis with its renowned Cobb Harbour, whilst the County Town of Taunton some 16 miles to the North provides a rail link to London Paddington and easy access to the M5 motorway.
