A spacious period house in the Avenues with versatile accommodation and within walking distance of the seafront.
Built in the 1900s with later alterations of brick with rendered elevations and part hanging tiles at first floor level, Rookwood provides good accommodation on three floors. On the ground floor a front door opens into the lobby and entrance hall, off which is a cloakroom and the main sitting room with an attractive fireplace with tiled and wood surround, overlooking the gardens. An archway opens into a kitchenette and the conservatory with doors leading to the rear garden. Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room with an attractive open fireplace and a living room with an attractive tiled and wood fireplace and a serving hatch through to the kitchen. Double doors lead into the study. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units and a Rangemaster with five-ring gas hob, and electric double oven. Off the kitchen is a utility room and a breakfast room with French doors leading out into the garden. On the first floor there is a master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom, en suite shower room and dressing room/bedroom with a door leading out onto a balcony and an en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms. A further staircase leads up to the second floor with three bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a further room which, according to the owners, has been used as a bedroom in the past. Part of the property has previously been used as an annexe with a separate access and with inter-connecting doors to the main house.
To the front of the house is a parking area for a number of cars with a double garage to the side, a workshop to the rear and a separate office/playroom above with a shower room (awaiting building regulations) and store room opposite. The garden is laid mainly to lawn to the rear of the house, which faces south-west, with mature flower borders, beds, shrubs and trees including a noteworthy mulberry tree. Adjacent to the house are two separate patio areas, two timber sheds, a greenhouse and a large vegetable plot.
