Rowford Lodge North, as the name implies, forms the northern section of a substantial country house appearing to date from the late 18th Century. Divided into two many years ago this property offers relatively extensive living accommodation offering four reception rooms together with kitchen/breakfast room at ground floor level and five bedrooms above. The house is not listed. Typically of good property from this era, the rooms are well proportioned and enjoy good ceiling height with many of the original features still present. The house stands within good sized gardens that form an attractive setting. Note - A nearby property gains access over a joint driveway which runs through the gardens to this property. Please contact the agents for further information if desired prior to viewing.

The property lies about 3 miles north of the county town of Taunton in a popular residential area lying at the foot of the Quantock Hills which are designated as an area of natural beauty. Rowford itself is a small hamlet near to the somewhat larger village of Cheddon Fitzpaine and offers a primary school. Taunton's amenities are close to hand where a wide range of recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities will be found together with M5 interchange and rail link to London Paddington. The Wellsprings Sports Centre is nearby as is the Taunton Academy Secondary School and Kings Hall Preparatory School. The Quantock Hills offer a wide array of footpaths providing excellent access into this scenic area where a host of views can be afforded over the Vale of Taunton Deane.
