With wonderfully light accommodation arranged over three floors and beautifully landscaped gardens, this substantial detached family home enjoys a prime corner setting on this new build development. The superior homes, specially designed for this site, have barn-style features to reflect the rural setting and local architectural styles. The development won a number of awards, among them a ‘Built for Life’ award to mark their quality with highest mark of ‘Outstanding’ by the government-endorsed quality scheme, from the Design Council Cabe. The home is hugely practical yet retains a number of interesting features such as semi-vaulted ceilings, large portrait windows and beautifully appointed bathrooms.
The incredibly generous ground floor accommodation is accessed by a spacious hallway leading to an open plan living space extending to 31ft, and providing ample space for living, dining and cooking. The room is incredibly bright and enjoys a triple aspect, attractive fitted units and granite work surfaces, with integrated appliances by Samsung and AEG further enhancing the premium feel. Also on the ground floor is a separate utility room, cloakroom and storage cupboards.
A more formal living space can be found on the first floor, where a 20ft living room offers lovely views over the surrounding landscape. There are three double bedrooms on this floor, including a guest suite with en-suite shower room, plus a family bathroom with separate shower. On the second floor there are two very well-proportioned bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and accessed from a galleried landing. The master bedroom in particular benefits from very high ceilings, a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower.
Rowan Drive enjoys a wonderful semi-rural position, with an unspoilt open outlook over the surrounding countryside from within a new highly sought-after development built by David Wilson Homes. The development can be found at the edge of the village and is surrounded by many miles of beautiful open countryside and farmland, offering the perfect combination of countryside living yet within a 0.5-mile walk of Milford railway station. Local shops include a butcher, pharmacy, Tesco, Co-op and Secrett's Farm Shop, as well as a village hall, doctor's surgery, post office, infant and secondary schools, and a church. Godalming town centre is 1.3 miles away and provides an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants, together with a wide choice of schools for all ages, (especially those in Busbridge, including Godalming Sixth Form College). The County Town of Guildford is about 5 miles to the north. There is quick access onto the A3 London/Portsmouth Road, which in turn connects to the M25 at junction 10. Other schools in the vicinity include Charterhouse, Royal Grammar School, St Catherine’s, Bramley, King Edwards in Witley, Cranleigh School and Prior’s Field. Prep schools include Aldro in Shackleford and St Hilary’s in Godalming.
Driveway parking to the front of the property provides ample space for off-street parking to accommodate three vehicles. In addition, there is an attached double garage with electronically remote-controlled doors equipped with an alarm system. To the front, the garden includes a parcel of lawn with low hedges behind rustic post-and-rail fencing, overlooking the central green. Side access is via a secure gate to the rear garden, which is also accessible from the kitchen/family room. Well tended and fully landscaped, the south-facing rear garden includes areas of lawn, planted borders, a pretty summer house, decking and pergola and, immediately off the kitchen, a patio area with electric sun blind, all ideal for entertaining.
