A beautiful and unique property, The Rowan House is positioned on the fringes of Philpstoun village in West Lothian, just three miles east of Linlithgow. It enjoys an elevated corner plot along a private road shared with two other properties. With a modern Baronial-style twist, and an east and west wing, it is certainly not one to miss.

The current owners have upgraded the property to an impressive standard, with luxury features throughout, including a bespoke oak kitchen.

This room leads down to the well-proportioned living room, which is flooded with natural light and offers superb views over the garden thanks to the bay window. There is also a beautiful garden room, accessed via twin oak doors, which features glass panels on the ceiling and French doors which lead out to the garden.

The kitchen is a definite highlight of this property. The luxury, bespoke room is fitted with a range of oak wall and base cabinets with soft close drawers, marble worktops and a stunning central island, which houses an integrated wine chiller. The kitchen also boasts a porcelain sink and an instant hot water tap, along with a Rangemaster stove and fridge/freezer. The room offers ample space for dining furniture. There are windows facing over the surrounding woodland and French doors leading to the garden.

All four bedrooms are located upstairs – the master bedroom is light and airy with a bay window overlooking the surrounding woodland, and complete with a decorative oak fire surround and a bespoke recessed oak book case. The other three bedrooms boast built-in wardrobes and windows offering twin aspects. Bedroom two also has access to an en suite shower room, while bedrooms three and four are located on either side of the Jack and Jill en suite with its stunning feature curved mosaic wall.

The main bathroom is positioned next to the master bedroom and is particularly impressive. It boasts a recessed wash hand basin, modern freestanding bath, WC and walk-in shower with drench head and a separate hand-held shower. The property also features an open library, gym/dance studio and a music room.


The gardens of the property are well-tended, tiered and laid mainly to lawn with mature shrub planting and raised beds, part-bounded by a willow hedge together with decked areas and built-in seating, making it an ideal spot for sunny days. There is also a children’s play area and a garden shed. The property also features a paved driveway and a garage.
