Property description

Rose Cottage is a traditional village cottage, Grade II Listed, of stone and cob construction with lime rendered and colour washed elevations under a thatched roof, with a more recent addition at the front under a slate tiled roof and which comprises the Hall and Cloakroom. The cottage was fully renovated and modernised in 2006 and has since been well maintained by the current owners, benefitting from all the original character features one would expect from a property of this style and period including a massive stone fireplace in the Sitting Room, a most unusual former fireplace in the Kitchen/Breakfast Room, exposed ceiling beams on the ground floor and a charming little Victorian fireplace in the main Bedroom. Modern additions include natural slate flooring throughout the ground floor, Economy 7 electric heating, a country style Kitchen and a quality Shower Room. In all, Rose Cottage offers a charming cottage which would create a super second home, investment property or holiday cottage.
