About the Property.

Positioned at the end of a long private driveway that winds through over an acre of woodland, Rowan cottage has been extended and modernised to create a seven-bedroom residence. There is potential to create an annexe utilising the ground floor bedroom and unfinished wet room. An air source heated outdoor pool sits alongside the sunny terrace and overlooks the expansive lawns. Inside, the modern extensions have bifold doors onto the terrace. A generous first floor principal bedroom suite with vaulted ceilings, which sits comfortably with the original cottage. Exposed beams and deep windowsills creates a cosy, traditional atmosphere. With two staircases and several reception rooms, the property lends itself to creating an annexe, ideal for a dependant relative or guest suite.

About the inside:

Entering the property via the kitchen/dining room you are welcomed into a warm, bright space with a traditional country kitchen and views onto the garden. A door at the rear of the kitchen leads through to the original part of the cottage. An inner hall has a staircase to the first floor and leads into a small reception room, with access to the original front door and into the main reception room. This characterful room enjoys exposed beams, deep window seats and a large inglenook fireplace with part of the original stone staircase rising behind it. A reading nook has been built into the old porch. Going back to the kitchen, another door opens into a generous Oak floored reception room with bifold doors opening onto the terrace. Part of the original cottage wall has been exposed, adding character to the property. From here a couple of steps lead down to a further reception room, with a conservatory overlooking the pool, stairs to the first floor and a door into a large ground floor bedroom in the old part of the cottage. A rear hall opens into a bright, dual aspect kitchen and an unfinished wet room servicing the ground floor bedroom. The back door has a ramp down to the driveway and triple garage.

Upstairs the principal bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and bifold doors opening onto a Juliette balcony overlooking the pool. The Oak floor continues into the open plan en-suite shower room with twin sinks, WC and modern shower enclosed by a glass screen. Bedroom two has been extended to incorporate a generous dressing area. Five further bedrooms, one set up as a small office and one with an original fireplace, share a bathroom with a separate shower and twin sinks. The principal bedroom, kitchen and dining room also benefit from air-conditioning systems.

About the Outside.

A long private drive winds through the trees and leads to a double car port with full workshop attached and a path through the garden to the kitchen door. The drive continues around the property to a large parking area and a triple garage. An expanse of lawn on one side is bordered by mature trees with fields beyond. A kidney shaped outdoor pool heated by an air source heat pump sits beside the paved terrace; with a further lawn wrapping around the house. The property also benefits from an original well in the gardens from when the property was first constructed.
