About this property

  • Rose Green Cottage is Grade II Listed of Special Architectural and or Historical Interest. The property is believed to date back to the 15th century and displays a wealth of features associated with the period. The appeal of the property is no doubt enhanced by its wonderfully traditional appearance beneath the attractive pitched thatched roof. The entrance porch opens through to a central hallway with brick floors, exposed beams with a staircase to the first floor. To one side is the drawing room with further exposed timbers and on the other side of the hall is the snug sitting room with a fireplace with wood burner. The dining room also has a fireplace housing the oil fired boiler, tiled floors and two external doors to the front and back gardens. The kitchen is beyond the dining room and has a range of base and wall mounted units. There is also a shower/cloakroom. The first floor is accessed via two staircases. The stair from the entrance hall leads to a landing with a double bedroom to one side and a family bathroom. There is a further bedroom which also has a connecting door through to the main bedroom which is also accessed off the secondary stair landing along with a further bedroom.


    The cottage is set back from the road with the gardens surrounding the cottage on all sides with established trees and hedgerows. Beyond the garden is a wooded pond area.
