Property Description
Rose Lea is thought to date back to the 17th Century and until 2017 had been under the custodianship of the local primary school headmistress. The current vendors have undertaken a sympathetic extension and refurbishment program under the close supervision of the local authority and have created a charming home within the heart of this sought after village. The accommodation comprises a living room, second reception room and ground floor bathroom, in the original section of the ground floor of the cottage, and the extension lays home to a modern country-style kitchen. The living room features an original inglenook fireplace and the kitchen benefits from french doors which open on to the southerly aspect terrace, which enjoys views towards the village church. The first floor is simple in design and offers two double bedrooms, with the master benefiting from an en-suite cloakroom. The home has a mixture of secondary glazing in the brick/timber section of the cottage and modern double glazing in the extension. The self contained annex offers a studio style room that benefits from a kitchenette, as well as a modern shower room, and would be ideal as a home/income proposition, as well as ancillary accommodation to the cottage.

Gardens and Grounds
The front garden is laid to a variety of flagstone and pavers, giving a beautiful southerly aspect terrace which has a shielded elevation from the road, and enjoys views towards the village church. The rear garden is primarily laid to a dressed gravel driveway suited to several vehicles and there is a lawned area with mature flower beds, which form its borders. The annex can be found towards the rear boundary.
