About this property

  • Rowan House was formerly the home of the headmistress to the neighbouring Mill Hall, a well-respected school for deaf until 1996. Believed to date from the 1980s, this excellent family home is attractively characterised by part weather-boarded elevations, and is well presented throughout with Scandinavian-inspired interior decoration of clean, simple lines, a light and bright colour palette and wooden flooring through much of the house.

    The floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the layout and full extent of the house. Of particular note is the light-filled sitting room which has sliding doors opening to the garden to two aspects, oak flooring and a contemporary stone woodburner. The kitchen has been cleverly extended to create a part-vaulted ceiling with two Velux windows; it is fitted with a range of high-gloss modern white units and central island, with granite worktops and a range of integrated appliances. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which has two sets of French doors to two aspects of the garden and an adjacent playroom/study. A large utility room and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    There are five bedrooms on the first floor, three of which face south over the garden with views over Whitemans Green and the South Downs beyond. The main bedroom suite benefits from two walk-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room; the remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with suite including a freestanding bath and separate wet-room style shower enclosure.

    Lying to the west of the house is a detached barn-style garage, comprising on the ground floor two enclosed bays with electrically operated doors, an open car port and workshop; an internal staircase rises to a first floor gym and separate office.

    The delightful, well-enclosed south-facing garden is laid to lawn, edged by colourful raised beds and young trees, including a number of fruit trees. To the east of the house is a part-walled courtyard garden, with useful garden store, covered seating area, stylish modern water feature and herb garden.

    In addition to the garaging, there are four shared parking spaces at the front of the house.
