About this property

  • Rowan House is located in a delightful rural location set high above the village of Blagdon and has the most glorious, large garden that backs directly onto open fields. Approached via an in/out driveway, this substantial detached family home is believed to date back to circa 1928 and has been in the same family ownership for approaching 40 years. Whilst the house would benefit from a degree of refurbishment and modernisation, it is a terrific opportunity to secure a sizeable country home with scope to put one's own stamp on the property and potential to add value. There is parking for numerous vehicles to the front in addition to the large double garage.

    The front door opens to an entrance lobby with a quarry tiled floor and a glazed door to the inner hallway. Immediately set off the hallway is a kitchen, fitted with solid wood cabinets, opening through to a dining/breakfast area from which to enjoy the views of the grounds. The walk through pantry leads directly through to a very generous double garage with cloakroom and boiler room linking into the dedicated laundry room. A superb addition to the property is the bespoke billiard room, which the current owners added to the rear, creating a terrific space for entertaining family and friends and commanding a wonderful aspect across the large level area of lawn. The formal dining room with its wide bay window is set to the rear of the property with a feature working tiled fireplace and directly opposite, a large drawing room with triple aspect and further fireplace. The bedroom accommodation is arranged over the first and second floors, three of which are set off the first floor landing and command wonderful views on a clear day. The principal bedroom benefits from a dedicated en suite with the family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms. A further staircase leads to a small second floor landing with two double bedrooms and plenty of eaves storage.

    The large gardens are a very special feature, they have clearly been well loved and beautifully laid out to include areas with large swathes of lawn, a good size stone terrace adjoining the rear of the property and even a former lawn tennis court. Mature Beech and Oak trees are set around the borders of the property with winding paths leading passed a pretty ‘hidden' stone pond and large areas that contain a mass of Daffodils and English Bluebell.
