The Property

Woodley Field is a magnificent and handsome property set in an elevated position within its own grounds, and kept hidden from the Allendale Road by a long driveway. The original property is believed to date back to around 1870 and was later divided into two individual homes. An abundance of character is prevalent throughout with oak panelling, exquisitely carved fireplaces, stone mullion windows and open fireplaces all of which are enhanced by the high ceilings, decorative plasterwork and cornicing. The property is arranged over three floors providing spacious and versatile accommodation throughout.

The entrance vestibule leads into the impressive reception hall with beautifully crafted oak panelling and archway, splendid staircase leading to the first floor and a multi fuel set within a charming fireplace. The principal reception rooms all lead off the hall, enjoying southerly and easterly aspects. The dining room, with gas fire set within a beautiful fireplace, is naturally bright with glazed wooden dresser-style units and bay window. The sitting room and drawing room both offer views to the south, with open fireplaces and French doors leading out to the garden with the drawing room continuing the oak panelling and benefitting from a useful cupboard to one corner. The kitchen/breakfast room is of generous proportions, with ample space for a table and chairs, fitted with a range of units and incorporating a four-door gas Aga along with a generous walk-in pantry. The utility room, with external access, offers further storage along with sink and plumbing for the washing machine. The cloakroom with wash hand basin and WC complete the downstairs accommodation.

The original oak stair case sweeps to the first floor with truly stunning window at half landing level. The main landing is wonderfully spacious and gives access to the first floor bedroom accommodation with stairs to the second floor. The master bedroom, with southerly aspect from the enchanting bay window, is bright, airy and of generous proportions. A dressing room has fitted wardrobes and sits adjacent to an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, wash hand basin, bidet and WC. Two further guest bedrooms, both benefitting from en-suite shower facilities, are located off the landing with a practical linen cupboard, separate WC and family bathroom. The family bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.

To the second floor, the landing makes an ideal space for a games room or entertainment space, with three double bedrooms off. A shower room is fitted with a shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC.

The cellar is accessed externally and split into three rooms, ideal for storage, whilst further storage is available under both staircases in the property.


Woodley Field is entered through stone pillars with a tarmacadam drive, flanked with mature trees, leading to the gravelled turning circle at the front of the property. The private and well maintained gardens sit to the east and south of the property over two levels, mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of mature shrubs and woodland. The garden leads down to an appealing stream.

There is a double garage and a triple garage, both with power and lighting connected, as well as parking for numerous vehicles. A log store and coal house also sit within the grounds.
