Fields Place is a traditional Herefordshire farmhouse built on a site reputedly occupied since Doomsday. This spaciously comfortable 6-bedroomed family home is hidden away down a quite lane in a glorious corner of Herefordshire, with views across the River Wye and set in gardens and grounds extending to approximately ¾ acre. Fields Place contains unusually large, heavily beamed rooms dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. The house was “updated” and extended about 1820 with elegant Georgian features and proportions, and at the same time the farm manager's cottage at one end was separated. A 12-foot high listed brick garden wall provides complete privacy and seclusion, enclosing a warm and sheltered South West facing corner to the front garden. To the rear, over the original Ha-Ha, extensive views stretch across the Wye valley. A ½-timbered wing provides utility and storage areas with a room above. This has potential for development into extra living accommodation with views directly over the garden.

The peace and tranquillity of this site is remarkable; it is immediately noticeable. Fields Place is set in a quiet back lane in the heart of the Golden Valley, close to but well above the River Wye. Bridge Sollars is only 1½ miles distant, which gives easy access to the North of the county and also to Hereford City (7 miles) from both sides of the river. Madley village with its church, school, shop, pub is also only 1½ miles away. Hay-on-Wye and the Welsh borderland are only 30 minutes upriver. Fields Place can be found on the Ordinance Survey map.

The house is approached by a semicircular gravel driveway with in and out gates

A long veranda leads into a part-panelled, oak-beamed reception-dining hall with an open fireplace and a 'Jotul' wood burning stove and a door leading down to the cellar with wine bins. Stairs lead up to the first floor. A heavily oak-beamed sitting room has a working Georgian style fireplace and beautiful Georgian bow window with French door to the rear terrace.

A second hallway leads to a very large, and elegant Georgian style drawing room with South and North facing windows and a working open fireplace with marble mantle. From here also is a back stair to the first floor.

The heart of the home is the great country kitchen. It has an original fixed Welsh Dresser, oil fired AGA and a quarry tiled floor. This lovely room has great potential for adaptation to the owner's design.

From the kitchen a door leads to a spacious stone-flagged back hall, which contains a Worcester Bosch oil fired boiler, providing domestic hot water and full central heating. A door opens onto the terrace. There is a large walk-in pantry with original salting slabs and also a separate utility room with more salting slabs, a butlers sink and plumbing for washing machine. From here is a downstairs cloakroom with WC and handbasin and also an integral workshop. Back stairs lead to bedroom 6. This is a favourite private studio, which could become a playroom, office or bedsitting room. Originally, it comprised two staff bedrooms when the house was a working farm over 100 years ago.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom has windows facing both North and South, an arched fireplace and walk-in wardrobe. The en-suite bathroom has a w.c., bidet, pedestal handbasin, and a very large bath with shower. Bedroom 2 is above the sitting room, so has a Georgian bow window opening onto the view across the valley, and a walk-in wardrobe. There are three further bedrooms with windows over the front driveway, all double in size and a family bathroom with bath and shower, w.c. and handbasin.

Fields Place is a happy house, standing in gardens and grounds of approximately ¾ acre. The garden is easy to manage, laid out to lawns, trees, and shrubs. The grounds are completely private; no part is overlooked from any direction, even though the original ½-timbered Farm Manager's cottage is still attached to one end of the house. The house is fully centrally heated throughout, also with open fires. Mains electricity and mains water are connected and there is private drainage.

Floor area:
Ground floor 168 sq metres.
First floor 167.3 sq metres.
