Rosebank Cottage is a charming three/four bedroom period property. With superb views over the surrounding Chew Valley and towards the lake, this property truly personifies an English country cottage.
Upon arrival at the cottage a five bar gate opens to the driveway with the garage beyond. As you pass the garage and the raised vegetable beds you arrive at the front door. The front door leads to the inner hallway with a staircase rising to the first floor and doors to the relevant rooms on the ground floor. A stable door opens to the incredibly spacious kitchen/dining room, in fact this room spans the entire width of the cottage. The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching wall and floor units and there is space at the far end to accommodate a dining table. The kitchen also accommodates an oil fired AGA (the AGA is purely for cooking) and a range of further appliances. Additional accommodation on the ground floor includes the attractive sitting room, with a doorway leading to the private garden area and a feature fireplace. There is also a cloakroom located on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one of which has a dressing room off, this could also be converted to create a 4th bedroom if required. Also on the first floor is a useful study area and the family bathroom, finished in classic white and comprising a four piece suite. A flight of steps lead from the first floor landing to the attic room, this could be used either as an office or indeed a play room.

Outside, the property benefits from a lawned garden which adjoins the sitting room, there is an area of raised vegetable beds to the front and for those looking to live the ‘Good Life’ there is ample room at the rear of the cottage for a chicken coup.
