About this property

  • Occupying an elevated position within the Conservation Area of the historic village of Sutton Valence, Rose Cottage is a delightful terraced, Grade II listed cottage which is believed to date in part from the 16th century or earlier.

    Beautifully presented internally, the cottage enjoys good ceiling heights to most rooms and retains many period features, including a wealth of oak timbers and beams.

    The accommodation comprises dining and sitting rooms, the latter with a wood burning stove, a rear hall/boot room links the kitchen which is equipped with various freestanding appliances.

    There are three first floor attractive bedrooms with beautiful beams in evidence. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The southerly-facing rooms benefit from wonderful views over the Weald.

    Outside the current owners have carefully landscaped the garden, with steps leading up through terraced lawns, edged with lavender and various seasonal shrubs and trees. The highlight at the top of the garden is the decked terrace with panoramic views over the roof tops. A gate gives access to the Greensand Way and Sutton Valence School grounds.
