Bower St John is a very handsome period country house with origins believed to date back to the early 1800s. It has an elegant pitched roof porch with a solid arched front door that has a stone surround and attractive arched stone mullion windows. The current owner has made a number of improvements, which include renovation of the decorative bargeboards, installation of garden lighting, new carpets upstairs and all of the bedrooms have been updated.

The property would benefit from further refurbishment. It also offers scope to be extended and remodelled to the rear, subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents.

The sitting room has a fine working wrought iron fireplace with a fine eye-catching period wood paneled fireplace surround. The drawing room has partial parquet flooring and leads through to the dining room with sliding patio doors, a door to a cloakroom and one to the kitchen. The kitchen is dated but is clean and functional. It includes a ceramic hob with an extractor hood above, integrated double electric oven, freestanding dishwasher and larder fridge. Off the kitchen is a utility room with a back door and a freestanding tall fridge and a separate fridge freezer.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, three of which have fitted wardrobes, off a multi-level landing with recessed bookshelves.
There are three light and airy double bedrooms and a single bedroom that alternatively could be used as a study. They are served by a family bathroom and a separate shower room, both of which would benefit from being updated.

Open countryside surrounds Bower St John and at the boundaries are a number of mature trees making it incredibly private. Wrought iron gates open to tarmac parking in front of the garage and workshop which has power and light. The secure gardens wrap around the house and are predominantly south and west facing with flood lighting at the front. There are strategically positioned terraces for alfresco dining whilst allowing the all-day sunshine to be enjoyed. The beautiful gardens include an expanse of lawns, rose arches, mature well-stocked borders of perennial and evergreen plants creating all-year round interest and colour and a vegetable garden with gravel paths weaving through it. In addition to the garage and workshop are a timber garden shed and a wood store.
