Built in 1913

Behold the stately residence, Rowallan. Built in 1913 on 1.63 acres of lush gardens, it sits across from the Intercoastal Waterway, just a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean. The home has been carefully and lovingly cared for through the years, maintaining the integrity of the original design and construction. The interior has been updated to today's luxury standards and creature comforts, painstakingly coordinating with the unique design of that era. You will appreciate the beauty of five original fireplaces, the 6 spacious bedrooms, 6 vintage baths and 2 half baths. An impressive double door entry opens to a foyer with a grand, double staircase. You'll travel back in time, enveloped in beautifully detailed crown molding, wainscoting, carved fireplaces and the grandeur that is Rowallan. Among the many unique features of this coveted historic estate, which is on the National Historic Registry, are the preserved wall murals by the famed artist, Jay Postle, and the original heart pine wood floors in the parlor, library, formal dining room, and downstairs bedroom. The upstairs primary suite is an expansive, comfortable retreat, (54 x 17) boasting two sitting areas, 2 fireplaces, a changing room and an oversized, fully customized, walk-in closet. The en suite features a vintage design, representative of the era, in a beautiful black and white marble palette. The remaining 5 bedroom suites are spacious and welcoming, each with a coordinating vintage bath. On the 3rd floor is a 1,750 sq. ft. finished & air conditioned attic with a half bath, which could be used as a game room, theater, or gym. The original kitchen has been remodeled - updated with modern appliances and finishes. The Butler's Pantry provides additional storage space with additional food preparation work space for large parties. A casual kitchen dining area, or morning room, provides expansive views of the gardens, patios, pool & spa, cabana, and the lush, gated grounds. A large lanai offers shaded outdoor entertainment space, with a fireplace and wet bar. The cabana is inviting with a kitchenette and bath which could be used as a private guest house or mother-in-law suite, and has access to the open air pool and spa. The pool features a large deck, perfect for holding large gatherings of family and friends. Access to this coveted private estate is through two gated entryways on John Anderson Drive or through private gated entrance on Landmark Circle. The residence is centrally located near downtown Ormond dining and shopping, riverfront parks, the prestigious Oceanside Country Club, and a just a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean. This one-of-a kind, historic estate offers a lifestyle reminiscent of a bygone era, of laughter and joy, abundance, and gracious living. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own a historic masterpiece. Once you view it, you'll want to make it your own!
