Rowfant Cottage was a former gardener’s cottage for nearby Rowfant House estate. Over the years the property has seen a number of additions with the most recent being the creation of the self contained annexe with its own kitchen. This could be incorporated within the general incorporation of the house if better suited to the new owners. On the ground floor there is 4 reception rooms in total, a living room, dining room, annexe lounge, music room as well as the dining room to the kitchen. Arecent addition to the house is the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. To the first floor is a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and four further bedrooms with a family bathroom. Externally, there are a range of excellent outbuildings including a workshop linked to a double garage, a separate timber‐framed carport with adjoining garage as well as a summer house.
The property is located on a private lane in the village of Rowfant, itself being approximately 5 miles to the east of Crawley. The position provides easy access to the M23 motorway ﴾10mins﴿, Gatwick airport ﴾15mins﴿ and Three Bridges station ﴾10mins﴿.
Travel: Communications in the area are excellent with nearby access to the M23 running north to south and providing access to the motorway network as a whole. Mainline rail services to London Victoria and London Bridge take approximately 40 minutes from Three Bridges.
Schools: Schooling in the area is excellent with Ardingly College, Bramletye, Ashdown House, Handcross Park, Cottesmore, Worth Abbey, Turners Hill Church Of England School and Crawley Down Village Church Of England School.
