Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A thoroughly charming detached cottage, believed to date back to the 1640’s, set within ¼ acre of beautiful gardens and situated on the edge of the village of Staple. The property is timber framed, with lovely white weather boarding, set beneath a fine thatched roof which was completely rethatched circa 2005 and has been recently overhauled to ensure many more years of life.

Rose Cottage’s interior is just as quaint as it’s exterior, with exposed beams throughout, old latch-key doors, a fine inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and typically cosy rooms with low, beamed ceilings and small, leaded windows.

At the front of the cottage, a stable door opens into a dual aspect dining room with a fireplace with a brick hearth which now houses the central heating boiler.

From here, a small inner hallway leads to the sitting room and a doorway also opens into the kitchen. This has a selection of traditional freestanding units (which shall remain) set around a Belfast sink and a ceramic tiled floor. A doorway leads to a fully tiled bathroom with a Victorian style suite.

The sitting room forms the heart of the cottage and is a wonderful room with many exposed beams, a deep, leaded bay window and an inglenook with a brick and tiled hearth.

To the rear of the cottage there are two double bedrooms, the smaller leading on from the master bedroom. Both rooms have a dual aspect and a wealth of exposed beams. Finally the accommodation is completed by a pleasant garden room.

OUTSIDE:

Rose Cottage sits within a generous plot of approximately a quarter of an acre, with beautiful gardens which are as interesting and unique as the cottage itself. To the front of the cottage there is a pretty rose garden with a delightful thatched well as its centrepiece. A long driveway provides parking for numerous cars and leads to a double garage with power and light.

To the rear, perfectly manicured lawns are interspersed with colourful flowerbeds and a host of mature shrubs and bushes. A large patio leads to a wide summerhouse with a tiled and covered veranda looking back towards Rose Cottage.

At the very bottom of the garden the plot reaches its widest point, and has been used to create Rose Cottage’s very own miniature railway! A miniature track weaves its way past pretty seating areas, mature trees, station signs, a signal post and even it’s own siding leading to a secure shed to house the trains, and on to ‘Staple Halt’ station. Whether young or old, it is hard not to see the charm and sheer escapism that this magical garden provides

AGENTS NOTE:
