This pretty stone built cottage is tucked away on Tutton hill, a stones throw from the sought after high street of Colerne. It offers everything you would hope to find in a countryside character property and so much more. Lovingly renovated by its current owner over the last 20 years, this home is beautifully presented throughout. It enjoys a wealth of retained period features and has been finished to an extremely high standard.
The cottage is entered through a traditional kitchen side lobby. Its deep bespoke oak storage cupboards perfectly compliment the hand built oak wall and base units in the kitchen and the reclaimed French terracotta tiled floor runs seamlessly between the two rooms. The Kitchen boasts two perfectly placed cottage windows overlooking the garden, a gas range oven and ample space for a breakfast table. The open plan sitting room and dining room has a hand dimpled period stone fireplace with wood burning stove, French feature radiators and wooden flooring. The light flooded garden room has built in bespoke oak furniture, double doors that lead onto the sun terrace and exposed wooden beams. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the garden, regardless of the weather.
On the first floor you will find a stunning master bedroom with garden views. The master is linked to a further small bedroom that is currently being used as a dressing area but could easily be used as a nursery or small child's bedroom. It could also be converted to create an en-suite bath and shower room if required. There is a further pretty double bedroom with original Elm floorboards, a period fireplace and built in wardrobes. The first floor is completed by its beautiful bathroom.
Rose Cottage is named perfectly as tucked behind its unassuming blue gate is the most wonderfully maintained garden with far reaching views across the Box Valley. The winding paths and secluded hollows of this walled private garden are truly wonderful. A gardeners delight with its south west facing position, the mature garden is a key feature of this charming property and has been lovingly established over the years, to require minimum maintenance going forward. With the sound tricking brook and bird song the abundance of David Austin and Old Roses, a mature variegated Maple, honeysuckle, a Rowan and Acer, Irises, Hydrangeas and Lavender fill the air with scent. There are beautifully level lawns, productive fruit trees and a vegetable garden along with a greenhouse, a stone out house and log shed, and a pretty paved sun terrace.
