    About this property

    • Rose Cottage is a unique character property dating back to circa 1890 and boasts an intriguing history. It is believed that the stables in the garden of the property were previously used to house the horses that would deliver beer to the local public house from the brewery.
      This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a charming home with huge potential. You can create your own dream home whilst still retaining the individuality and charm of the original property.
      This pretty cottage provides a front reception room complete with feature open fireplace and alcove. This leads through to the dining room which stands out with its unique leaded window and stained glass feature above the door. The conservatory features a beautiful lantern roof. There is a wishing well covered by a marble slab creating an interesting and most unusual feature. The room provides views over the garden and also enjoys a mature vine which, when blooming in spring/summer, creates a delightful focal point. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the kitchen, lobby and cloakroom.
      On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to a fourth bedroom in the loft with beams and a sky light.
      Rose Cottage boasts a pretty courtyard style south-facing garden with cobbles and a painted mural by the current owner. The stable block with open sides provides an incredible entertaining space, perfect for parties whilst not being exposed to the elements. Above is a wooden cabin, potentially an ideal hideaway for children, creating many an adventure for them.
      Adjacent is a further stable block, currently used as an art studio. This has two floors and provides an expansive and versatile space to convert to an office/gym/games room or guest accommodation. Both areas have power and lighting.
      There are well-stocked mature flower beds and shrubbery providing lush foliage all year around. The garden wraps around the side of the side of the house where there is off-street parking via a gravel drive and gates.
