    About this property

    • Rose Cottage is a charming & beautifully presented late 17th century Grade II listed cottage constructed of timber frame with brick and flint infill, old tile roof and eaves-line dormers. In recent years, the accommodation has been much improved and extended to benefit from the charm of a country cottage whilst incorporating the clever use of glass to provide contemporary style living. The cottage exudes character with vaulted ceilings, two open brick fireplaces with original brick and flint oven projections, leaded windows, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and stripped floors throughout.

      Entering the dual aspect sitting room, the room features an open brick fireplace with log burner and original feature bread oven, dating from when the cottage was a bakery. In the front wall of the property, a small, low-level window speaks to the property's history as the village post office. The newly fitted “Shaker style” kitchen nestles in the heart of the house, with a range of wall and base units under a granite worktop, free standing range cooker and built in butlers sink with mixer and boiling water taps. There is a stable door to the side garden and stairs down to the cellar. Leading from the kitchen and at the rear of the house is the double aspect dining / family room, with a double height glazed wall with French doors to a raised terrace and garden that has wonderful views over fields to the ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' windmill. The room has a flagstone floor with a floodlit circular floor windowed water well feature. A spiral wrought iron staircase leads up to the impressive mezzanine style guest bedroom featuring a vaulted ceiling and newly fitted en-suite shower room and enjoying the large glazed window with stunning views over fields up to the windmill. In the older part of the house, accessed via a separate staircase there are two further bedrooms. One being the larger principal bedroom with feature vaulted ceiling as well as a newly fitted three piece bathroom suite.

      Outside, a grass verge with established flowering border lies to the front of Rose Cottage, next to a stone path which leads to a rambling rose covered entrance porch and then continues alongside the property, with a well-stocked raised flowering bed to one side. Outdoor dining can be enjoyed from the flagstone terrace, which is situated to the rear of the property and is accessed either from the dining/sitting room or the kitchen. From here, steps with raised herbaceous borders to either side, lead up to a gently rising lawn, with wood clad outbuilding with tiled roof beyond. Clematis and wisteria covered pergolas lead up through the garden to a sun deck situated at the top providing an large entertaining area with views overlooking the Turville Valley up to the windmill beyond.
