Fallowfield is a fabulous family house that has been extended and greatly improved in recent years by the present owners to provide a large family home that allows a growing family their own space but also large sociable rooms for family gatherings and entertaining.
Built in the 1990's the house has been completed in a 'Barn' style with a feeling of character, yet benefits from todays building standards. At over 5000 sq' this is a home that will appeal to those with a young family looking for a home for many years to come. As with the house the gardens have been cleverly landscaped to provide different distinct areas with a pretty south facing secluded courtyard style garden at the rear of the kitchen and dining room, a more formal patio with sunken garden adjoining the living room, a secret courtyard garden to the west side of the house together with extensive lawns, a vegetable garden, numerous trees and shrubs and a lovely detached summer house with bedroom, shower room and living room. There is extensive parking in the large driveway and a large double garage.
"This has been a wonderful place for the family to grow up in and now that the children have fled the nest, it is only fitting for another family to make wonderful memories here" says the owner. "We've really tried to think of everything when we've improved the house and spared no expense. Whilst it is a large house it always feels homely and lovely to come home to at the end of the day.
Step inside Approached by a sweeping long driveway you enter the house into a hallway from which there is most impressive and very large reception/sitting hall with high vaulted ceiling and a fine staircase and galleried landing above. There is a lovely large inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove, a flagstone floor and full height windows and doors opening out onto the courtyard garden at the rear. This is a stunning welcome into the house. Large double arched doors open into the impressive dining room which has comfortably seated over a dozen guests on more than one occasion. At the rear of the house is a large family/games room that has hosted many fun parties and family gatherings over the years. There is a bar area, doors onto the south facing courtyard and a large sitting area presently used as a cinema room. The drawing room is in a more contemporary style and provides a relaxing and peaceful room with wood burning stove and windows to two aspects together with French doors opening onto the huge main patio with the gardens and lawns beyond. At the other end of the house is found the beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room. The real hub of the home this kitchen provides enough space for all the family and is fitted with an excellent range of units and appliances including an aga, multiple ovens, a coffee maker and multiple hobs set into a large island with extractor unit above. Granite worktops and Oak flooring really set the room off and in the breakfast area there is a vaulted ceiling with Velux roof lights and French doors open onto the courtyard garden. Off an inner hallway is a useful utility room and a door to a side together with a door to the double storey garage and a second staircase rises to the first floor.
Upstairs the galleried landing overlooks the sitting/reception hall and leads to the quite stunning master bedroom suite. The bedroom has been designed with real thought by the owners with dressing table and wardrobes, windows to three aspects and French doors open onto a balcony that overlooks the gardens and countryside beyond. The good size dressing room leads through to a luxuriously fitted en suite bathroom. Also on the first floor are two further double bedrooms which share a bathroom. These rooms can easily form their own suite if required. Stairs lead up to the top floor with a long landing, off which are three further double bedrooms and a bathroom.
Step outside Gates open into the long gravel driveway that leads up to the large double garage and provides parking for many cars.
The gardens are a particular feature, extend to over one and a half acres and have been beautifully landscaped to provide colour and interest throughout the year. A large patio with sunken garden adjoins the house beyond which the gardens are laid mainly to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, pergola and various areas have been created in which to sit and while away the day. At the very rear of the house, adjoining the kitchen, dining room, sitting hall and family room, is a large south facing courtyard garden that has been cleverly landscaped with water feature, ponds and decked areas.
