Field House was built in the early 1960's by Louis Osman who was an acclaimed architect and goldsmith who designed some important properties of the era. Field House was strongly influenced by the Georgian cuboid principle and has many special features that make this wonderful property unique. There is a fine hallway and distinctive cantilevered spiral staircase built in aluminium and sycamore. Field House has large plate glass windows, a trade mark of Osman's work, thus throwing light and brightness in to all of the rooms. The current owners have completed a thorough programme of restoration to the highest of standards and the house now represents a beautiful family home with stylish and distinct interiors, positioned in the loveliest of settings.
On the ground floor is a spacious entrance hall with flagstone flooring and extensive glazing, this in turn leads in to an inner hall with the staircase. The sitting room is south facing enjoying a sunny aspect overlooking the garden and featuring a marble fireplace with open grate. Three pivot doors lead to the gardens. The sitting room opens into the dining room which has sycamore flooring and is double aspect. There is a retractable sliding screen wall between the dining room and snug, the latter of which has a pivot door to the garden as well as a wood burning stove. From the snug there is access into the kitchen which has limestone flooring, oak wall and base units with marble worktops. There is an integrated dishwasher, gas oven and cooker hood. From the kitchen there is a rear lobby with utility room with integrated washing machine and freezer, shower room and cloakroom. Accessed from the entrance hall is a spacious office/study with under floor heating and a garden room area with double doors to the outside.

The master bedroom has fine views, built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom comprising bath, WC, basin and shower.
