An outstanding family home in a first-class Cotswold village, the appeal of Field House is further elevated by its luxurious and contemporary interior design
Located in the heart of the ever-popular village of Sapperton, one of the Cotswolds' most sought-after villages, Field House, a spacious six-bedroom Cotswold stone residence, was destined to attract attention when it was recently brought to the market for sale by Savills. However, step inside and you realise there is more than first meets the eye here.
Renovated to an exceptional standard over the last two years, Field House has been designed by a leading interior designer to create the ideal home for entertaining. The overall effect strikes a balance between traditional Cotswold living and a top-end contemporary design.
Moving from room to room you will find a wealth of natural materials. From beautiful stone and hard wood floors to vaulted ceilings, everything you see has been individually sourced and is bespoke to Field House. Cleverly designed Lutron lighting, underfloor heating and a Sonos sound system provides the finishing touch.
The 48ft kitchen/dining room is the heart of the home and an exceptional space for year-round entertaining. The newly erected David Salisbury orangery is simply stunning and foodies will delight in its handmade Smallbone kitchen, which features a host of quality appliances, including an Everhot oven and Gaggenau fridge freezer.
The principle reception room is another impressive space. Positioned at the rear of the house and leading on from the kitchen, the light and bright area boasts high vaulted ceilings and four sets of doors into the garden. But it is its centrepiece duel aspect fireplace that is perhaps the room's most stunning feature.
As we move into autumn, the drawing room really comes into its own. Featuring bold wooden panelling and an attractive Chesney fireplace with limestone mantle, the effect is both elegant and comfortable.
Two cloakrooms and a spacious boot room which doubles up as a staff/service kitchen complete with Gaggenau appliances and bespoke fitted units and storage cupboards complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are four double bedrooms and three bathrooms to the first floor. The master suite is of particular merit and includes a large dressing room complete with fitted wardrobes and a luxurious master bathroom. The other two bathrooms are also of high quality, with the guest bedroom having an en suite bathroom. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. These make for fantastic occasional bedrooms or highly accessible storage rooms.
The professional design is evident into the immaculately presented landscaped gardens and grounds, which extend to 0.8 acres. A formal garden with two sheltered terraces make for fabulous outdoor entertaining spaces, and beyond you will discover a raised garden with a stable block and store, looking out to open farmland.
Sebastian Hipwood, head of Savills Cirencester, is marketing the property and comments: "Light, airy and beautifully designed, Field House is truly exquisite. And that is before you consider its first-class village location. An exceptional Cotswold family home that is tailor-made for stylish entertaining."
Field House is on the market with Savills for a guide price of £2,950,000. For more information please call Sebastian Hipwood at Savills Cirencester on 01285 627 555.
