Pathfoot Loan

Blawlowan House, a traditional B-Listed family home located in Bridge of Allan is now available

Blawlowan is a charming period house with beautiful gardens, grounds, and is the only remaining property which dates from the time of Pathfoot village lying immediately to the north-west of Airthrey Estate. The east part of Blawlowan dates from at least 1731, as there is a carved marriage stone lintel bearing that date. The remainder of the property dates from the 1820s, built as a typical modest Georgian house with symmetrical front facade, a stone framed front doorway and dormer windows to the roofline. Blawlowan lies directly on the line of the old drove road to Sheriffmuir and the Hillfoots and in the past has served as a drovers' inn. The west wing originally comprised outbuildings and stabling but was partly incorporated into the accommodation in the 1940s, though still leaving a double garage and woodshed.

ACCOMMODATION

Ground Floor

From the gravel drive in front of the house paving leads to the stone framed front door. There is a large entrance hall which has been recently redecorated and provides open entertaining space. There is a door through to a cloakroom which has a separate WC next to it. The adjacent south facing drawing room has also been recently redecorated. The dining room is situated to the east of the entrance hall and features display shelves, timber flooring and an open fireplace with solid fuel stove and tiled hearth. From here there is an inner hall with the original front door to the old part of the house. Back stairs from here lead up to the first floor.

The large kitchen has a dining area to one side, purpose-made wooden fronted units with work surfaces. A door leads through to a back corridor where there is a door leading out to the rear of the house. Situated off there are a traditional shelved larder, a servery with fitted cupboards, sink and connecting door to the dining room, a shower room with WC and a utility room. This has fitted floor and wall cupboards with wooden work surfaces, a sink unit, and is plumbed for a washing machine and vented for a tumble dryer.

First Floor

From the entrance hall a curving stone stairway leads up to the first and second floors. Off the first floor landing there is a study with built in cupboards, shelving and a cast iron fireplace with wooden mantel. The master bedroom with its two windows has south facing views, a cast iron fireplace with tiled inset and wooden mantel, and a wash basin. There is a further south facing bedroom with fireplace and wash basin. The family bathroom has half tiled walls, a bath, WC and wash basin and there is also a linen cupboard. The back stairs by the original front door lead up to two south facing bedrooms and a staircase from the landing to the loft above.

Second Floor

From the main first floor landing the stairs continue up to the second floor. Here there are two south facing bedrooms, both with dormer windows and cast iron fireplaces. There is a further bedroom with coombed ceiling, built in cupboards and a separate wash area with two sinks. The top floor accommodation is completed by a store room, and a bathroom with bath, WC and wooden dado panelling.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Blawlowan sits in mature gardens with extending to about 0.8 acres. The house is backed by the Mine Wood which rises up behind and contains many magnificent broadleaf trees. This creates a fantastic backdrop to the sloping garden. The garden is laid out in two parts with a lawn immediately behind the house. The principal garden lies to the east and comprises established herbaceous borders, a gravel path and further lawns.

The driveway into the house is hedged on both sides. The public footpath is on the far side of the hedge. The driveway leads to the front of the house where there is a parking and turning area beyond.

To the front of the house there is an attached garage with sliding wooden door, concrete floor and a hatch leading to a storage area above the drawing room. Adjacent to this is a log store with corrugated iron roof. There is also a summer house with two store rooms behind, a boiler room, and a lean-to store with work bench to the rear of the house. To the west of the house is a small burn with bridge as well as original dog kennels.
