Rose cottage is true to title when it comes to charm, quirkiness and all those lovely “old world” features. When it comes to the internal design and layout one will find oodles of space with above average sized reception rooms all of which are wonderfully bright and seamlessly flow from one room to the next, features which are not commonly associated with cottages.

Additionally, the attic has been converted and spans the entire width of the property. Here too there is magnificent light having been fitted with velux roof windows. This space has served as a library and music room and also provides excellent storage space as well as being a wonderful and peaceful place to retreat to.

To the left of the property there is a recently renovated detached one-bedroom apartment which include a separate office accessed via its own entrance. This building has many possible uses either as a separate dwelling &/Or office or both as its current function stands.

Rose cottage would not have reached this jaw dropping standard of design and layout if it wasn’t for its current owner who has a passion for interior design and architecture. It is evident that this project has been a labour of love, each room has been lovingly restored and sensitively decorated, contributing to the creation of an exceptional home with a wonderful vintage theme. Rose Cottage is picture perfect and is only short of being wrapped in a big red bow!

First impressions of this property will be long lasting. The entrance via a bespoke stable door brings you to a beautiful hallway, impressive features which include hardwood floors and doors are immediately evident. The theme continues throughout this lovely home and includes timber beamed ceilings, plantation window shutters, recessed lighting and in the sitting room you will find a cast iron stove set in original fireplace.

Perfectly situated on an elevated site and tucked away up a private laneway, this home has magnificent views of the Sugar Loaf and surrounding countryside. The extensive gardens are an appealing combination of manicured lawns separated by meandering paths, seated terraced areas which take full advantage of the South facing aspect and bespoke planter beds all cleverly arranged to attract butterflies and wildlife. In addition, there is a beautiful orchard as well as an area with raised vegetable beds. The garden also boasts its own pond.
