Rose House is a stunning detached Grade II listed house with origins that can be dated back to the 17th century yet beautifully combines this with contemporary family living. The house is built of brick elevations under a thatched roof and the current owners have carried out a significant programme of updating and now the house is presented in beautiful decorative order.
Giles Wreford-Brown of selling Agents Symonds & Sampson says “ Rose House is a truly stunning period house with all the character and charm one would expect with a property of this era, yet the main day-to-day living area of the house is fully equipped with all modern day conveniences and gives a real wow-factor”.
On opening the solid wooden front door one steps into a lovely hall with a staircase to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation is both spacious and flexible with one of the principal reception rooms having a large central fireplace with double sided wood burning stove. This room has served as a family room, study or second sitting room. Beyond this room is another room, currently used as a study but could easily be a ground floor bedroom with its own entrance if required and there is a beautifully finished fully tiled wet room providing ensuite facilities. On the other side of the hall and still in the old part of the house is a large sitting room with lovely Inglenook fireplace and from here a step through the door leads into the contemporary part of the house.
This is extremely well laid out and suited to modern living with a cosy snug which in turn leads to the magnificent kitchen / dining room. The dining room is a wonderful room, facing south with triple glazed sliding doors bathing the room in natural light and in the summer time bringing the outside in. The modern well-appointed kitchen has limestone floors, granite worksurfaces and excellent range of wall mounted and floor standing appliances with quality Miele integrated appliances. The kitchen has a lovely vaulted ceiling and there is a recently finished utility room with cloakroom and door to outside. Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a fabulous room overlooking the garden with luxury fully tiled bathroom and dressing room with bespoke wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms, a good sized single room and family bathroom.
Outside to the front there is a gravel parking area with attractive front garden, mature hedge and path to the front door. At the back of the house there is a stone terrace accessed from the dining room with the large garden facing due south and having plenty of attractive flower beds as well as mature trees and hedges providing privacy. The property sits in an excellent location in the heart of this highly sought after village.
