Property description

This modern village residence backs onto open fields and has been sympathetically extended and improved by the owners creating a bespoke home of exceptional finish. The accommodation extends to approx. 4330 square feet.

Set back from the road, a gravel drive leads to brick pillared powered timber gates. The gates open onto an extensive private gravel drive offering ample parking and turning, supplemented by a double garage with powered doors and a carport. There is also a car charging point.

The entrance hall features a contemporary glass balustrade galleried landing creating a feeling of space and light, setting a tone for the rest of the property. Off the entrance hall is a study which is ideal for working from home and overlooks the front drive.

The heart of this home is the amazing kitchen which has been extended with a triple aspect orangery overlooking the rear garden while bifold doors allows the space to flow outside, ideal for entertaining and daily living. The oak kitchen units with emerald pearl granite worksurfaces benefit from an extensive range of integrated Miele appliances including dishwasher, coffee machine, combination microwave, warming drawer and steam oven. There is also an instant hot water tap and Britannia Range Cooker. The utility/laundry room is fitted in the same style as the kitchen and adds practicality.

The large living room has a magnificent brick built fireplace and exposed beams. There is an opening from the living room to the dining room which also has a brick built fireplace with a potbelly stove and access to the garden. Both rooms have privacy for a cosy evening while being connected for larger gatherings.

The northern part of the ground floor was also extended by the current owners creating a superb games room and cinema room. The games room features a drinks station and French doors to the rear gardens, it is large enough to accommodate a full size snooker or pool table. The cinema room is wired ready for cinema equipment and features ambient lighting and tier flooring ensuring the best possible viewing experience.

The principal suite is particularly special and comprises the bedroom, two luxurious en-suites and a dressing room. The large bedroom has a vaulted ceiling which continues into one of the two en-suites with a modern free-standing bath, inset waterproof television, walk-in shower and twin handwash basins. The second en-suite shower room has been refitted and sits alongside a dressing room.

The guest suite also impresses with a beamed vaulted ceiling and contemporary en-suite. The third bedroom also has an en-suite while the fourth bedroom has an en-suite cloakroom and shares the family bathroom with the remaining bedroom. All five bedrooms are doubles and along with the number of bath/shower rooms ensures privacy for all occupants.

The rear garden has been professionally landscaped and is accessed off the kitchen/orangery, dining room and the games room. The bifold doors allow the inside and outside to join seamlessly, perfect for summer. There is a heated pool, large lawn and mature planting. A timber built studio is incredibly flexible and is ideal as a gym or garden office.

Luxurious additions have been made throughout this home such as smart lighting, underfloor heating, air conditioning, built in speakers, alarm/CCTV systems and a central vacuum system.
There is a friendly pub within the village and the award winning Black Horse is approximately 3 miles away in nearby Ireland. There are numerous countryside walks around the village. Major rail services are available from nearby Biggleswade with regular services into London, major road links are also easily accessed.

Seller Insight
Broom is a small village containing an eclectic mixture of properties and here, gently tucked away, is this magnificent, spacious, family home standing on a sizeable parcel of land. An individual Potton timber house, it has been the much loved family home for Steve and June for the past twenty one years.

“We had always admired the quality of timber framed Potton homes alongside their unique traditional design, and constructed with such precision, whilst embracing everything required for modern day lifestyles. When we were hunting for a new family home, we were thrilled to discover Rowan Lodge in such an outstanding location. Everything about the house has provided an idyllic family home for us. We have added and enhanced its amenities and luxuries considerably, one being a large extension, thereby adding extra bedrooms, plus cinema room and orangery. The bathrooms and the kitchen have all been redesigned and our kitchen now leads into a spacious orangery. This is a magnificent family room and is where everyone gathers and is, inevitably, the first port of call for our visitors. There are lots of places for everyone to spread out and relax in, and this wonderful space leads into the garden which brings added delight.”

“We also have a heated swimming pool in the garden which has been the focus of many enjoyable family occasions and the children, when growing up, had lots of fun with their friends. We have several areas on which to relax and dine where we enjoy lots of social occasions with friends and family. Whatever, the occasion, our home with its amenities is the perfect party venue. We did hold a special family celebration here when we had over one hundred friends and family happily mingling together.”

“Broom does have a strong sense of community with many events taking place in the village hall. We also have a quite unique pub here which is an extremely friendly location to meet friends. Shops are minutes away, with Biggleswade being where larger supermarkets are located, together with the mainline station which offers quick and efficient journeys into the capital. There are no schools within the village, but transport is provided to all schools within this catchment area. Old Warden is nearby which contains the Shuttleworth collection of historic planes, and we often enjoy a ring side seat from our garden on flying days.”

“We will feel very emotional when we say farewell to this fabulous family home but it is time for another family to enjoy life here and to make their own memories.”
