A rare and exciting opportunity to own a fine period home within just a short stroll of the centre of this historic Market Town. It boasts an impressive south facing garden approaching three quarters of an acre. 'Rowans' is a charming and incredibly spacious family home (over 2500 sqft), that has been much improved in recent years by the current owners. Inside there are three elegant reception rooms all featuring attractive fireplaces, picture rails and either large sash windows or glass panelled double doors. In addition there is a large useable cellar, cloakroom and a fantastic refitted kitchen/breakfast room with an 'AGA,' slate flagstone flooring and a central island/breakfast bar with solid wooden worktops. There is even a large refitted second kitchen/utility. There are six good bedrooms with an additional room that could be a dressing room/ study (or even a 7th bedroom if so required) and two bathrooms on the first floor. Two separate staircases allows for a flexible layout and annexe potential. A gated gravelled driveway leads up to an integral garage. The gardens of this fine period home are a real surprise. The generous well tended more formal rear garden is mostly south facing and enjoys a good degree of privacy, this then leads through to a further area with established trees, shrubs and plants.
