Full description

Almost hidden from the road, screened by high mature hedging, affording great privacy stands this hidden gem.
From first glance one may feel Rose Cottage would be a rather modest cottage, however be prepared to be surprised, as this is a home that goes on and on. The sheer quirkiness and character is rather captivating, therefore viewing is highly recommended and for us well worth the 25 minute or so commute from York City to visit.
Rose Cottage dates back to circa 1800's, since there has been a number of an extension to the rear and side elevations, opening out the accommodation, offering great flexibility to be used just as one would wish. Great fusion is offered between the rooms where old and new just knit together succulently, indeed as each door opens one is not sure what will lie beyond, this is the beauty and the versatility and charm Rose Cottage offers.
The accommodation in brief: a recently erected useful vestibule porch with a ground floor cloakroom. The sitting room and snug are all inherent of the original build, retaining great working open fireplaces. There is a winter snug for the chilly evenings, a dining room and an open plan family room, situated centrally and close enough to the kitchen to see children playing.
The kitchen has been quite cleverly designed to the side of the home, it maximises the views of the mature grounds through fabulous arched floor length windows with a matching door, opening out to a terrace area with lawns beyond. This area is so light and really good to work in.
There is a utility room, a ground floor shower room and a conservatory plus a ground floor bedroom serving as number 4 or alternatively maybe a room for a study for the homeworker.To the first floor lie three double bedrooms and a house bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are fitted with wardrobes.
Externally the grounds are very mature and extensive. Indeed there is so much space to the side Selby District Council agreed to outline planning permission for the erection of a four bedroom detached house with garage. This has lapsed now but the sellers are happy to pass forward the plans and relative paperwork.
To summarize, if you are seeking a home with a little difference, Rose Cottage may just capture your interest and appeal to you.
Barlby is a popular village, positioned just behind the bypass serving commuters well as the A19 does connect with major road networks serving Leeds, West Yorkshire and beyond. The market town of Selby has a station for commuters wanting London with a direct service or a change at Doncaster.
