Rowanbank House is a picture perfect four bedroom detached family home, that is private yet very accessible being just 10 minutes from the M80 and on the edge of The Trossachs Natural Park. The village of Thornhill has an excellent primary school and falls within the catchment of McLaren High School. The property boasts an exceptionally generous plot with a beautifully landscaped south facing rear garden. Internally, the property has been professionally upgraded by the current owners and is presented to the market in excellent internal order throughout.
With a 50meg Fibre connection and an annual income of £1200 pa tax free from the PV panels it provides all the needs of a modern home with low energy usage, good schools and great countryside on your doorstep.
The accommodation comprises of a large formal reception room, family room, dual aspect dining kitchen, utility room, master bedroom with en-suite, three further double bedrooms, master bathroom, attached single garage and ground floor WC. The property also benefits from solar panels which are on a high tariff rate. The solar panels deliver incredibly low running costs to the house and will generate a rebate of around £1200 per annum for the 19 years (approx.) remaining on the contract.
You enter the house through a handy vestibule which includes the ground floor WC. This is the perfect place to kick of muddy boots before you walk all over the hardwood floor in the hallway beyond. The central hallway forms a natural divide between the formal main lounge and the working family space on the ground floor. The main lounge itself is absolutely beautiful having been overhauled by Laura Ashley. The lounge runs front to back and glass on all three external walls ensures floods of natural light. While focused towards the Global real flame LPG fire with a Limestone fireplace, excellent floor space offers tremendous flexibility for a variety of different configurations. In addition, French doors lead directly from the main lounge to a large deck which offers a wonderful extension to this entertaining space in the summer months.
The kitchen/diner is located on your left as you enter the property and easily matches the proportions of the main lounge. Again, running the front to back, a dual north-south aspect ensures a bright and engaging space. The kitchen has been refitted to the highest of standards, (all kitchen appliances are Neff, including a single oven plus combination microwave) with a completed range of base and wall mounted units topped with granite work surfaces. The true heart of the home, the kitchen offers fantastic prep and storage space for the aspiring chef and includes an attached family room and handy utility room.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor you find a landing which runs laterally across the house. The landing provides access to the master suite, three further double bedrooms, a master bathroom and a large partially floored loft with light, for additional storage. The layout has been arranged to give a degree of separation between the master and the remaining bedrooms ensuring a degree of privacy. The master bedroom itself offers tremendous floor space for a range of furniture configurations. There is an attached en-suite shower room which includes a white suite and a large walk-in shower. A northerly aspect ensures that the master bedroom won’t be too bright when you are having a lazy Sunday lie-in. All further bedrooms are well-proportioned doubles with integrated wardrobes. The internal accommodation is completed by a modern master bathroom which includes a three-piece white suite and shower over bath.
Externally, the property shares a driveway with the neighbouring Ashburn House. There is plenty of parking space shared between the house and attached single garage. The real star of the show is the extensive private south facing rear garden, designed for ease of maintenance with built-in fire pit. The garden has been extensively landscaped by the current owners and has been a real labour of love over the years.
Dry stone walls on the eastern side of the garden have been used to create a terraced effect which is perfect for capturing the dying light late on a summers evening. There is also additional storage with a shed/workshop that sits to the side of the house and an extensive deck and patio to provide entertaining space.
This is a magnificent family home and internal viewing is a must. Pictures simply cannot do it justice.
Extras (Included in the sale): All curtains, blinds and the free-standing Siemens fridge/freezer in the utility room. For satellite navigation purposes use postcode - FK8 3PS
