About this property

** No Onward Chain ** An elegant, Grade II listed, 3 storey Georgian town house, providing adaptable and spacious accommodation, located in the heart of Modbury, with many original features, 4/ 5 bedrooms, courtyard garden and a double length garage

Rowan House is a fine example of Georgian architecture at its best and is situated on the highly desirable Brownston street, in the heart of the town and within a moment's walk from the high street. Internally the property offers spacious and adaptable accommodation arranged over 3 floors with an immense amount of character and charm whilst retaining many beautifully restored, original features throughout. The impressive entrance opens into a grand hallway with an exquisite Georgian staircase rising to the first and 2nd floors and two beautifully proportioned reception rooms, with each displaying an array of period features including ornate, cast iron fireplaces with marble surrounds and decorative coving. From the rear of the hallway there is a well-equipped utility room, cloakroom and conservatory giving access to the rear courtyard garden.

On the first floor there are two further reception rooms currently serving as the main sitting room and dining room. The kitchen is located at the rear of the first floor and has been fitted with a range of comprehensive units incorporating integrated appliances. On the second floor the accommodation is again generous in proportion with 3 double bedrooms including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room and separate family bathroom.

Outside there is an attractive, cobbled courtyard garden enclosed with wrought iron railings and plenty of space for potted plants and outside dining. At the rear of the property is a double (tandem) garage with an excellent amount of storage space in the loft above.

Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach.

Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library.
