The Property

An enchanting Grade II listed period property of great historical charm with a wealth of architectural features and original detail.

Built in the early 19th Century and adorned in stunning pyracantha and forsythia complementing a handsome façade typical of the period. The versatile accommodation is of elegant proportions and whilst little has altered from the original design, it may now benefit from some updating and modernising. Rockdean has retained a wealth of original detail and character and still offers charm in abundance.

There are three reception rooms on the ground floor, a useful parlour and the kitchen with a brick floor opens on to a potting conservatory.
An elegant staircase leads to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and a large family bathroom.

The property benefits from two rooms in the cellar.

Rockdean stands within its beautiful walled gardens of approximately half an acre. There is a partially shared driveway leading up to the rear section of the gardens where there is a period stable block, shepherd's cottage and a large barn with a store room and wood shed, some of which may be suitable for conversion subject to consent.

The landscaped gardens are a particular feature of the property and provide a secure and enchanting environment in which to relax and enjoy. The gardens have been beautifully designed and tended and have been planted with a variety of mature shrubs and plants.

There is an attractive orchard of apple, plum apricot and ancient mulberry trees beyond the lawned area along with a period conservatory.

All main services are connected.
