Idyllic Setting

Fringed in farmland, sanctuary beckons from Rowans Corner. Originally dating back to 1843, Rowans Corner is one of an exclusive collection of homes nestled along The Spinney. Ample parking is available on the gravel driveways to the front and rear of the home, alongside a carport with access to the landscaped garden. Fully renovated in 2015 and now lovingly maintained, Rowans Corner is a home renewed and reborn, with green features including solar panels, air source heating and a mechanical ventilation system ensuring all the comforts and financial benefits of modern living.

A Warm Welcome

Make your way to the front door, festooned in evergreen vines, and step into the entrance hallway, where fitted cupboards and shelving provide an abundance of storage. Doors connect to the formal dining room, a brightly lit room with large windows overlooking the garden outside.

The Heart of the Home

A home with great flow, the dining room connects to the main kitchen-diner, a vast space with an array of appliances including two Neff ovens, steam oven, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, full size freezer and fridge. Granite worktops to the sides and central island offer ample preparation space. There is plenty of space for a breakfast table, and al fresco dining beckons on the sunny elevated decking, accessed through a part glazed door. Off the kitchen, the utility room with vaulted ceiling serves the main kitchen, with plumbing for washer, dryer, additional sink and storage and handy access out to the garden.

Relax and Unwind

Follow the easy flow through into the sitting room, where a wall of bi- and trifolding doors create a seamless connection with the decking and outdoor space once more. Exposed beams nod to the home’s heritage, whilst clean, crisp modern shades retain a fresh, contemporary feel. Windows draw in light throughout, whilst the multifuel stove infuses warmth.

Sleep Tight

Sequestered away from the main entertaining areas, a hallway leads from the dining room to the home’s sleeping quarters, the way illuminated by sensor lighting. A great size, the family bathroom is airy and spacious, and fitted with shower, separate bathtub, hand basin and lavatory. Across the hall lies two of the home’s four bright and bountiful bedrooms, both light and airy doubles courtesy of high, vaulted ceilings and with tranquil views over the garden. A third, single bedroom currently serves as a study with fitted shelving.

Sweetest of Dreams

Supremely spacious, the principal suite is awash with light, extended and remodelled to provide perfect peace and relaxation at the end of a busy day. Views extend over the garden through pretty latched windows, while French doors offer instant access out for morning coffee in the sunshine. Ample storage is available in the dressing room, while the recently refitted en suite bathroom invites you to soak in the luxuriously sized bathtub. Warmed by underfloor heating, the en suite also boasts a large walk-in shower, wash basin, vanity unit and lavatory.

Lovingly Landscaped

Escape to the country with hints of the Mediterranean outside at Rowans Corner, where to the front, the large fishpond glistens in the sunlight. At the rear, the sunny, south facing garden combines aesthetically alluring elements and tactile textures with winding pathways, bespoke made copper water feature and architectural planting. Surprisingly low maintenance, and reassuringly private, each seating area offers a different outlook over this beautiful and peaceful outdoor oasis. A large shed, equipped with power and lighting, is neatly screened off at the end of the garden.

It also has its own village hall, sports and social club and tennis courts and an active community with many resident-led activities to get involved in, including a wine circle, investment club, history group, gardening and ramblers’ club.
