PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Part of the charm of this property is, undoubtedly, its location. 'Trewin' stands at the end of a long gravelled driveway, well back from the road and undisturbed by traffic or passing pedestrians. Indeed, it is not the easiest to find from sat nav, which just adds to its appeal, as you will probably only get the visitors you invite.
This unique link-detached cottage, dating back to c.1859, offers very flexible accommodation with generously proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms, which is apparent on entering the double-height spacious hallway. The reception rooms have the charm and feel of the property's origins, whilst offering the open-plan living spaces of our modern times. The Study and Snug provide areas for peace and quiet when required, for work or relaxation. The upper floor provides four bedrooms, with the potential for a fifth on the ground floor if required, and the master bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom. For those who work from home, a staircase has been installed in the garage providing the potential for the room over to be used as a home office, or perhaps as a hobbies room / teenager's den. There are exposed ceiling beams to the main sitting areas, hardwood double glazed leaded windows, pine panelled interior doors, and pine architraves and skirting boards.
Located on the periphery of the well-regarded village of Rowlands Castle, with its general stores, cafe, doctors and veterinary surgeries, church, golf course and public houses, some of which are centred around the village green. For more extensive facilities, the attractive harbour village of Emsworth and the larger town of Havant, are both within a few miles, whilst the Cathedral city of Chichester is about 10 miles eastward. For commuters, the mainline railway station in the village connects to London Waterloo in about 1.5 hours.

A picket style fence, with a wide vehicular opening, borders the front of the property which is laid to gravel, and flower/shrub beds, providing parking for a number of vehicles at the front of the garage.
