Fieldholme, an exquisite Arts & Crafts residence built in 1938 for the esteemed blacksmith Norman Bucknell, showcases his unparalleled craftsmanship. This architectural masterpiece exudes timeless charm through meticulously handcrafted details such as enchanting window sashes, leaded window panels, robust oak beams, and elegant polished floors. Its distinctive gabled roof design stands as a testament to enduring beauty. In 1998, new owners recognized its immense potential and embarked on a transformative journey to expand the property while preserving its Arts & Crafts origins. Collaborating with a talented local architect, they seamlessly integrated modern amenities and sympathetically extended the structure, blending old and new. Surrounded by captivating gardens reminiscent of Arts & Crafts homes, Fieldholme offers a thoughtfully designed interior layout. Two primary reception rooms, each with its unique allure, await. The captivating sitting room features an inviting open fire and a splendid dressed local stone fireplace, while the graceful dining room boasts a charming log burning stove. Both spaces effortlessly flow into a delightful conservatory, connecting indoors with the natural beauty outside. The well-appointed bespoke kitchen, bathed in natural light from double aspect windows, is complemented by a practical utility room and access to the garden. Completing the ground floor are a welcoming study and a convenient shower room. Upstairs, four bedrooms with ample eaves storage and a family bathroom await.


Beyond a charming Cotswold stone wall, a pair of wooden gates open, revealing a gravel driveway that provides ample parking space and grants entry to a detached double garage. This garage, accompanied by an upper storeroom, presents an enticing opportunity for expansion, subject to the necessary planning permissions and adherence to building regulations. Surrounding the property, lush lawns intersect with meticulously curated flower beds, adorned with an array of shrubs and trees. At the back, a mature beech hedge and Portuguese laurel hedge partially enclose a terrace and a raised pond, flanked by additional expanses of well-maintained lawns. Adjacent to the premises lies a significant 2.26-acre field, boasting the advantage of vehicular access through a restricted by-way. This paddock is predominantly comprised of grassland, embellished with a wildflower meadow, an assortment of notable trees and an orchard featuring apple & plum trees. Accompanying this arrangement is a separate detached single garage/workshop, an open tractor barn, and a poly-tunnel. Agent Notes: The field possesses a distinct title and is subject to a covenant.
