Rowan House, Flore, NN7
An impressive, 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, Executive home with double garage, conservatory and off-road parking occupied by the current vendor since construction in 2006. Rowan House is set back up a shared driveway with just one other property of similar style and proportions.
The property is situated in the heart of the small historic village of Flore which lies on a south facing gently sloping hillside to the north east of the River Nene. Village facilities include a local store and post office, eco-food and coffee shop, primary school and public house.
The main road through the village has recently been freed up following completion of the Flore Bypass and this has enabled the residents to settle back into a peacefully quiet community once again.
The village of Flore is an ideal location for families seeking a tranquil location but with all the benefits of easy access to Northampton or Daventry. Flore’s proximity to the M1 also make it a popular village for those whose work involves travelling.
