Description - Roseland is a Georgian detached Cottage dating from 1829 with only 1 change of ownership in the previous 100 years and offers charming accommodation primarily over two floors resulting in 17 rooms totalling 4289 Square Foot. The property backs onto a spectacular gardens of 0.8 Acres which have been sensitively transformed from an apple orchard into an English Country Garden with a patio area adjacent to the house, leading to sprawling lawns with mature borders and raised beds for the market garden ( planted with courgettes and salads ) that gradually transforms into a more rural setting at the back of the garden with a copse and composting facilities.
The property, thought to have been originally been a Bakery, was left to the National Trust in 1988 and the current owners took occupation shortly after and begun an exhaustive, yet sensitive, renovation and extension in 1995 to create a charming property that has all the proportions and period detailing expected of a historic home alongside the inherent benefits of a modernised property with double glazed hardwood windows and a modern heating system. Where possible the original features have been retained such as flag stone floors, timber lintels and fireplaces alongside modern essentials such as damproofing, new roof, new electrics, plumbing and solar panels as well as bespoke kitchen, bathrooms and utility areas and windows that were previously blocked up due to the window tax re-instated to create a bright and airy home.
Modern fitted solid oak kitchen with granite worktops, integrated appliances, large island unit and free standing Aga set into a former fireplace with timber lintel. Insulated electric Zip Blinds for total privacy.
Dining Room with flag stone floors, salvaged maritime timber lintel over the original bread oven.
