The Common, Rowde

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
This is a hugely appealing property; Holly House probably dates from the 19th century although it has been considerably enlarged in more recent times. Its farmhouse character combines successfully with a practical layout that suits modern country living well.

Set back from the country lane, it has great privacy with the principal accommodation having a southerly aspect over its own land and the surrounding open countryside. A detached garage provides space for three cars and a self-contained annex provides generous, useful ancillary accommodation.

The grounds are a delight. More formal garden areas by the house incorporate a pond surrounded by lawns and borders; immediately by the house is a wide paved terrace. Gateways lead from the garden to the land which comprises a large meadow with mown paths that have created brook-side walks to enjoy wildflowers and an array of wildlife. Alongside the house there is a small paddock with a pond and direct access onto The Common.


From Devizes follow the A342 signposted towards Chippenham. Proceed down Dunkirk Hill and into the village of Rowde. Turn left into Cock Road and follow this for about a mile and Holly House will be found on the left hand side.


The property is located along a wide-verged country lane, amidst open countryside about a mile out of the village. Rowde has a range of facilities including the popular George and Dragon Public House, a village hall, tennis court, football/cricket fields and St. Matthew's Parish Church. There is also an excellent C of E Primary School. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the nearby market towns of Devizes and Chippenham (mainline rail service to Paddington - 75 minutes). Good road links provide easy access to Bath and Swindon and via the M4/A303, London and the West Country.

There is a good choice of state and private schooling in the area (Dauntsey s, Marlborough College, St Mary s Calne) and those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for too with good riding and walking in the locality.
