Character 3 bedroom cottage in an outstanding elevated position with wonderful views over local countryside.

Rose Cottage is the larger of 2 attached cottages that is positioned a ridge to take full advantage of some far reaching panoramic views down to Charmouth. The property is believed, in parts at least, to date back to the 19th Century and has over the years evolved into what is now a spacious comfortable home that takes full advantage of its position. In recent years, the property has undergone a comprehensive programme of renewal and refurbishment that has taken in much of the fabric of the house with the installation of an Aga in the kitchen, a woodburning stove in the fireplace in the sitting room, the addition of a conservatory, the majority of the fenestration, the reworking of the family bathroom, the installation of an en-suite shower room and the general decoration throughout the property. The principal room of the house is the sitting room/dining room which to one end has a sitting area centred around an inglenook-style fireplace equipped with a multifuel burner and to the other a formal dining area. One end of the sitting room leads through to a conservatory designed to take in the views behind while to the other end of the sitting room near the dining area a door leads through to the kitchen which is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards, the Aga, an electric cooker and hob for the summer months and a floor that is laid to polished quarry tiles. Beyond the kitchen there is a useful utility room with a hanging cupboard to one end and a cloakroom to the other. Upstairs there are 3 good bedrooms, 2 of which have built-in wardrobes. One bedroom has an en-suite shower room with the 2 remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. The property is in good decorative order throughout, has oil fired central heating in addition to the Aga which creates hot water, is double glazed for the most part with the exception of some of the east side of the house and has private drainage.

Rose Cottage lies in an elevated position on the ridge leading down to Whitchurch Canonicorum on the west side of Morcombelake.

The village of Morcombelake lies approximately 6 miles to the west of Bridport and has a post office, a farm shop and a village shop selling the famous Moores biscuits and a wide range of West Country food products.

The market town of Bridport with the pretty harbour at West Bay lies approximately 6 miles distant, and the area provides the opportunity for enjoying the Jurassic Coast, designated a World Heritage Site.
