Roughlea is an impressive detached property constructed of
brick beneath a pitched tile roof. Believed to have origins dating to the 1920's and the Arts & Crafts period, the property is thought to have been extended in 1947 and again more recently in the 1990's.

Well maintained, further improved and sympathetically
updated by the current owners today accommodation lends
itself beautifully to entertaining and family life. The double height glazed reception hall is undoubtedly a stunning architectural feature both externally and internally. Light floods across oak floors leading to other reception rooms and staircase rising to galleried landing. The drawing room is double aspect overlooking gardens to the rear with stone fire place. Other reception rooms include a dining room and a cosy snug with fire place. The Smallbone designed kitchen with granite work surfaces, central island, integrated Gagenau appliances and 4 oven electric Aga is open plan to the conservatory with breakfast area.

A hobby/games room could also be used as bedroom five and a single room/bedroom six has been fitted by the current owners as a dressing room.
