Evolving from quaint, 1800s-farmhouse origins to embrace the adjacent cottage, barn and stable; Row Head has completed its metamorphosis into a modern and spacious family home.
Park in the rear yard, where there is room for around five cars. Sneak a glimpse at the wraparound gardens, filled with mature trees including a striking magnolia, resplendent in spring, and a selection of burning red acers.
Experience a warm and hearty welcome, courtesy of the crackling multifuel stove set beneath its oak lintel in the grand entrance hall.
Muted grey walls mingle with white-washed brick work and exposed stone within the chimney breast to create a rustic yet modern feel. Contemporary mingles with classic, as laminate flooring below marries with the painted wooden beams in the ceiling above. – illuminated by an antler-design chandelier.
An old school clothes airer, suspended above the multifuel stove, is handy for slinging wet walking gear following a yomp around the Blengdale Horseshoe.
Within a former doorway is a new cupboard, fitted with a traditional wooden door with wrought iron hinges, handy for storage.
Pass through the archway to the right and into an atrium, off which a number of practical rooms lie. To the right, a dry utility room, with coat hooks, shoe racks, a sink and plentiful storage. At the opposite end of this area is a room that would be ideal for those with dogs.
Slip through to the left, where an elegant dining room awaits. Light and spacious, a traditional chair rail, ornate cornices and an elegant ceiling rose recommend this room well for formal dining and family events.
Carpeted in pale grey, a wine rack is conveniently sited within the marble fireplace. Plenty of room also for sideboards and other furniture.
A deep-set window provides an influx of light, as well as views out to the resplendent wraparound garden.
From the dining room, step through the wide wooden door and into the grandly sized lounge.
Stained glass cascades colour down from above the back door and onto the creamy toned carpet. Ornately decorated coving surrounds the sizeable room, where, to the far end, a second log-burner sits beneath a marbled surround.
Above the fireplace, the wall of the chimney breast is embellished by neutral wallpaper of an arboreal theme; very inkeeping with the surroundings of Row Head.
In the summer, step outside and onto the wraparound patio, or explore the garden beyond. South-facing, this room remains bright and sunny throughout the day.
Leading off to the left, a hallway reveals a downstairs wet room with shower to the left of a set of stairs. To the right, a light and airy bedroom.
Cleverly positioned close by one another – and providing excellent accommodation for those with mobility requirements – the wet room could also be repurposed into a cloakroom with guest WC.
Take the stairs up to the first floor, where an array of comfortable bedrooms awaits.
To the left, a bedroom that has formerly functioned as a light-filled study awaits, decorated in muted tones…a most cosy space.
Across, a double bedroom with pretty views over the lush garden and down the lane opposite. Ideal for a teenage son or daughter.
Next door, a fourth bedroom – decorated in soft damask rose tones – again looks out to the peaceful garden. A stone-backed ornamental fireplace provides a quirky focal point.
Opposite, a family bathroom is pristinely tiled in buff toned tiles, with inset spotlighting above. A deep-set, lattice window draws in light, illuminating the sleek white fixtures including bath, sink and WC.
When slumber calls, look no further than the master bedroom at Row Head…
Maturely dressed in fawny tones, a rustic oak beam intersects the room above the bed. Bright, quiet and with views of the ever-changing colours in the garden outside, this sleeping sanctuary is a true haven.
Sneak a peek at the inviting en-suite. Cream mosaic tiles are separated by a band of grey, with a large shower to the right and a sink and WC also on hand.
Next door, a guest bedroom also boasts its own en-suite Jack and Jill bathroom with large, square shower and cream coloured tiles.
Ready for a surprise? Open the other door from the en-suite, and exit into the stunning barn lounge…
Treacle-toned beams criss-cross the vaulted ceiling of this light and airy room, drenched in light from the multiple windows.
Relaxing, comfortable and so spacious, this room can easily accommodate two large corner sofas, serving as the perfect overflow party room following family gatherings and feasts in the family room below.
With a separate lounge downstairs, why not make this one an adult retreat for rest and refuge? Or can you envisage this as a sumptuous master suite with dressing room and bathroom?
Descend a second set of stairs to explore the pièce de resistance: the stunning family room and kitchen.
A wall of sliding doors brings the outside in; the perfect place to sit and watch the bullfinches at the feeders.
To the far end of this contemporary space, modern seating and an entertainment system encased in a floating storage unit beneath the television, comprises the living area of the family kitchen. Heated laminate flooring, to the same style as in the entrance hall, continues throughout the room.
Perhaps the most striking feature of all is the grand roof lantern ceiling, surrounded by a dappling of inset spotlighting.
Sleek and practically designed, this contemporary kitchen is designed for those with a fondness for clutter-free living.
Glossy, full-height, white units conceal an array of built-in appliances including fridge and separate freezer, double oven and microwave.
Handleless drawers and cupboards provide an array of storage, with yet more hi-spec appliances to hand including an instant boiling tap, wine cooler and coffee centre.
Sit with up to five friends along the solid wood top of the breakfast bar, beneath the rustic-style fisherman’s pendant lights, enjoying a caffeine injection as the kids create their (removable) masterpiece on the black, chalkboard wall…
