DESCRIPTION
Rowallan House is a resplendent Victorian Villa with four reception rooms and seven bedroom which provides ample space for entertaining and dining. With the seven bedrooms, all ensuite, there is plenty of room for family and friends to visit and enjoy the property and surrounding area. Given the available space and layout of the property it could be utilised as a guest house and has done so, very successfully by the current owners.

As one of the earliest properties to be constructed in Newton Stewart the property has retained many of its original features including ornate cornicing, picture rails, ceiling roses, dado rails, stained glass window and fully working wooden shutters. To the stair case leading to the first floor there are decorative balusters and balustrade. The first floor offers six bedrooms with en-suites, all being renovated and decorated to a high standard. In addition to the main guest areas and bedrooms the property offers separate private living quarters which comprise of a living room and large conservatory with direct access to the gardens.
