    About this property

    • This is one of the finest Georgian houses in the village which has more than its fair share of attractive period properties lining the main street. The house stands back from the road behind a mature hedge and large garden, with a rear entrance and a converted coach house at the rear which collectively form two very well equipped, self-contained dwellings ideally suited to large families or someone looking for a house and neighboring rental opportunity.

      Rose Villa boasts a number of period features throughout with elegant generous reception rooms, the majority of which overlook the south facing gardens. A grand open plan kitchen breakfast room with French doors opening on to the stone terrace, a wood burning stove has been added to the dining area. There is a separate dining room which has French doors to the terrace and leads through to the glazed orangery which in turn links through to the magnificent drawing room with separate access to the rear of the property. The ground floor layout includes a useful laundry room with shower room and WC.

      The elegant staircase leads to the first floor with a principal bedroom boasting a sizeable stylish en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are four additional bedrooms and a contemporary house bathroom.

      The house extends to over 3,000 sq ft and has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners with the added addition of new sash windows. The original features running through the property have been delicately enhanced with high ceilings, deep skirting boards, architraves, ornate ceiling roses along with detailed moulding and a fine staircase. The owners have added engineered oak flooring to most of the ground floor with the benefit of under floor heating.

      The Coach House is a detached former garage that has been extended by the current owners creating flexible accommodation of over 2,000 sq ft, perfect for an independent relative or for guests. The property could potentially be adapted to return part of the building to garaging without affecting the rest of the living space. To the ground floor there is a generous hallway leading to the large sitting room with an open fire and stone mantel above along with two sets of double French doors opening to the front. On the other side of the hall is the open plan kitchen and dining room with French doors. There is a separate utility room with boiler and a downstairs shower room. To the first floor the principal bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room and dressing area. There are two further bedrooms with a house bathroom.

      The houses are approached via double timber gates on to a block paved driveway with ample parking and a garden to the side of the entrance. The garden to the main house can be accessed from double timber gates from Mitchell Lane, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a mature hedge on three sides, mature trees and a small established pond. To the front of the house is a raised terrace running the width of the property with French doors leading into the dining area, dining room and orangery, ideal for entertaining or family life.
