The Location - The ancient, historic market town of Ashby (with its famous 12th century castle) almost certainly dates back to Roman times. Later, in the early 19th century, it became a spa town. Many of the Georgian-style buildings that you now see were built to accommodate visitors to the Baths. Today, Ashby de la Zouch is a thriving and bustling town within the National Forest and enjoys a wide range of good shops, schools, pubs, churches and local amenities. The nearby M42 motorway gives easy access to the M1, M5 and M6 and many other Midland towns and cities. The town is also convenient for the international airports at Nottingham East Midlands and Birmingham.
Local History - Rowan House is part of Ivanhoe Terrace, built by Robert Chaplin in 1822. Along with number 15 South Street, the three-storey residence was used as accommodation for the visiting public who wanted to bath in the new Ashby Spa, located in the nearby Bath Grounds.. At first, the Spa was a great success and the four other houses on the row were constructed to meet the needs of the visiting public and their servants. After the demise of the Spa, the houses (along with 14 South Street) were sold off as homes. From then to the present day they have changed with the times but always retain the charm and character of a Georgian home due to the grade two listing - the carriageway archway in the middle of the terrace accessing the stables for the visitors' horses.
