The Common, Rowde


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6

Holly House probably dates from the 19th century although it has been considerably enlarged; farmhouse character combines successfully with a practical layout that suits modern country living well. Garaging with space for three cars and a generous self-contained annex above provide genuinely useful ancillary space.

The accommodation is arranged to take full advantage of the fabulous panorama with large windows affording good natural light. The views are a delight and the grounds incorporate formal areas of garden which open into the unspoilt meadow; where mown paths have created brook-side walks to enjoy an array of wildlife.

The property is offered for sale as a whole or in two Lots; Lot 1 Main house, annexe and nearly 17 acres at £1,200,000. Lot 2 comprises nearly 10 acres with a stable yard which is £150,000.


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 about a mile out of the village, along a wide-verged country lane, amidst open farmland. Rowde has a range of facilities including the popular George and Dragon and Cross Keys Public Houses, 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.
