Rose Cottage is an incredibly special period detached cottage located in an equally wonderful setting, almost completely surrounded by countryside yet only a 10-12 minute walk to the village centre and its excellent facilities and amenities.

For a period home, Rose Cottage is incredibly light, particularly the living room, which features a triple aspect with French doors to the large rear garden.

The house is believed to have been built in 1680. It is Grade II Listed and constructed with timber-framed and plastered elevations under a thatched roof. In the 1980s, the house was extended to create the living room, bedroom 1, and en-suite. The detached double garage was also built at that time.

The house is full of character and charm, with a wealth of original features, including exposed timbers, brick floors, and an inglenook fireplace. Yet it is practical in the modern sense, with spacious, versatile living accommodation, a kitchen with hand-crafted cabinets and an integrated Neff dishwasher, two bath/shower rooms on the first floor, a ground-floor wc and an incredibly useful detached annexe, complete with a toilet and shower, and small kitchen. The annexe is a perfect place for visiting guests to stay, and the covered terrace provides a charming and relaxing entertaining space.

A beautiful detached period cottage sitting in wonderful, tranquil gardens of over half an acre with versatile accommodation, oozing character and charm a detached, self contained annexe and a double garage.

A detached double garage with power and light has an adjoining office, a perfect work-from-home space located a few moments' walk from the main house.

There is parking for three vehicles on the paved drive.
