Full description


This fabulous cottage is one of those gems which you come across from time to time, which suit such a wide variety of purchasers from those looking for a main home, a second home, or looking to generate an income. Rose Cottage is set in this very desirable village of Aislaby and within close walking distance of the popular local pub, The Forge. Currently, the second bedroom, with its private entrance, is being used to provide income as bed and breakfast, with further potential offered by the studio (subject to planning) for an additional room, annexe etc. Improved, upgraded and extended by the current owner, this really is something wonderfully quirky!

Approached up the steps from the pavement through the cottage style front garden, the half glazed, double glazed, traditional timber front door opens into…

Living Room cum Kitchen: 20'0 maximum 15'0 minimum x 14'4 This attractively shaped room has double glazed windows to front, side and rear aspect. There is a stone tiled floor with underfloor heating and a beamed ceiling. The staircase to the first floor rises from here, with a cupboard beneath. Set into the fireplace at the other end of the room, with a stone tiled hearth and a timber lintel above, is a hand forged, multi fuel stove, which stands out due to its unusual yet immensely practical design. It runs the central heating and the hot water for the cottage. Doors lead through to the second bedroom (Map Room) to the side and to the utility room at the rear.

The kitchen area itself offers a range of deep drawers and a wooden worktop with an inset, one and a half bowl, pot sink. There is a wall mounted plate rack with a shelf beneath, an electric cooker point, part tiled walls and space for a fridge under the worktop.

Utility Room: 7'8 x 5'3 In the new extension, the utility room has a half glazed, double glazed, timber door leading out to the rear garden, a stone tiled floor and an exposed stone wall. There is a double glazed window to the rear, space for the tumble dryer and plumbing for the washing machine. From here a door leads to…

House Shower Room: The shower room itself has a double glazed window to the rear, along with a conservation style Velux window in the ceiling. There is an electrically heated, chrome, ladder style radiator and a wall mounted, electric fan heater and extractor fan. The modern white suite comprises a wall mounted wash basin with tiled splashback, a tiled shower cubicle with a Mira Advance electric shower and a WC with a dual flush, low level cistern.

Stairs rise from the living room via a half landing to the first floor.

At the half landing level there is west facing double glazed window, looking over the fields towards the church, with an oak window seat and a hatchway leading through to the loft. This is approximately 17'0 long, lying above the workshop, with a window at the rear. This is useful storage, which is readily accessible on hands and knees, from the cottage.

Sitting Room: 14'1 x 13'5 The sitting room has a double glazed dormer window to both front and rear aspect, with double glazed French windows on the western end leading out onto a small roof terrace, ideal as somewhere private to sit in the evening sunshine.

Bedroom 1: 14'5 x 14'5 overall including en-suite and airing cupboard The main bedroom has a double glazed dormer window to the front and a conservation style, Velux window to the rear.

En-Suite Bathroom: The en-suite bathroom has a conservation style Velux window, part tiled walls and a radiator. The suite comprises a wash hand basin, panel bath and a WC with a low level cistern.

Map Room:
The second bedroom can be accessed either from the living room/kitchen, or via its own, private front door. This makes it ideal to be used as part of the cottage's accommodation, or as it currently is, as a room for bed and breakfast to generate an income.

Accessed from the front, a half glazed, double glazed, traditional timber front door opens into the bedroom (14'4 x 13'4 overall including en-suite), which has a double glazed window to the front, wood effect laminate flooring and a radiator. There is a beamed ceiling and wall light points, whilst a door at the rear leads through to…

En-Suite Shower Room: This internal shower room has a large shower tray with a Mira Sport electric shower over, a WC with a dual flush, low level, cistern and a pedestal wash hand basin. There is an extractor fan, a white, ladder style radiator, which runs off the central heating, or an electric heating element and a beamed ceiling.

Studio: The Studio has definite annex potential (subject to planning).

It is accessed from the pavement at the front of the property and attached to the cottage at the rear corner, there is no access between the two.

From the pavement, a stable door leads in and there are windows to all 4 elevations, as well as laminate flooring, a beamed ceiling and a radiator which runs off the central heating system.

To the rear of the Studio is a run of wooden worktop, with cupboards and drawers beneath, space for a fridge and an inset, Belfast sink, with a mixer tap above and tiled splashback.

It is an irregularly shaped room, so we have taken the measurements at approximately mid-points. This gives it dimensions approximately 16'11 x 14'9.


Front Garden: Accessed up some steps off the pavement, the front garden is in a colourful, cottage style and is south facing and sheltered, with stone flags and a sunken pond, surrounded by traditional and interesting flowers and shrubs.

To the side of the studio is a grass pathway which runs to the side of the cottage and widens out at the rear to become the back garden. It is understood that the neighbours have a right of way over this for access, but it is owned by Rose Cottage.

The cottage is bounded by a field to the side and rear and has a pathway leading up to the back door, which has a really sensibly placed coal bunker.

The rear of the garden is grassed, with a timber shed (12' x 8').
