INTRODUCTION Barcarolle, is a five bedroom family home, standing at the brow of the hill on Redhill Road, on the approach to Rowlands Castle village green.
Our vendor says,
"This has been a wonderful home to our family for over 40 years. In addition to the house being spacious and providing a large garden for our children, the surrounding area has provided many opportunities for enjoyment of the outdoors. There are numerous areas to go walking or cycling and, of course, the beach is nearby too".
Throughout the years of raising a growing family many people move house to accommodate the ever-changing requirements for space, both indoors and outdoors. The owners of this home enjoyed living there so much that they extended and altered the house to suit their own particular needs. They have created a spacious home complete with a leisure room, which has provided many hours of entertainment. Now, with family fully grown and raising their own youngsters, it is not quite so easy to undo the changes to suit their current needs, and so a move is the logical answer. After 40 years, they are hoping that a new family will move in and find their own space and similar happiness as they have had at Barcarolle.
Barcarolle stands in the popular village of Rowlands Castle with its many social events including a Summer Fair and Mayday picnic. The village accommodates commuters with its mainline railway station providing regular services to London Waterloo and has a good range of everyday amenities.
