About this property

  • Rosebank House sits elevated in its plot with superb views over its terraced gardens and out to the Bass Rock and Isle of May. The property has a traditional appearance and is built of stone under a slate roof with excellent accommodation over two floors. To the front of the property are two fine reception rooms with period features, situated off a spacious entrance hallway with vestibule and staircase. Beyond the hallway and on the south side of the house are more informal rooms which include a cosy sitting room and open plan kitchen / dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a scarlet AGA and has plenty of worktop and storage space. The south facing conservatory is a superb space and is fully glazed with doors out to the south facing patio. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a utility room, WC and store room.

    The bedroom accommodation is all at first floor level where there are three double bedrooms. The master bedroom and guest bedroom both look north to the Bass Rock and over the gardens with the master bedroom having its own en suite shower room. The other two bedrooms share a large bathroom also set off the landing.

    The gardens and grounds of Rosebank House extend to about 1.28 acres. To the front of the house and beyond a stone balustrade with steps set between are beautiful terraced gardens with well stocked flower beds, three pond, fruit trees and two summer houses. On the south side of the house are lawns and a BBQ terrace next to the conservatory. The garage is also accessed from the rear and is adjacent to the small paddock which could support vegetable growing or the keeping of livestock. There is a further patio on the east side of the house set within a walled garden, which gets the morning sun.
