A simply magnificent Grade ll Listed thatched cottage, set within glorious and secluded gardens, with several useful outbuildings including a summerhouse, a workshop and a detached garage. Rose Cottage is situated in a wonderful rural setting, surrounded by some outstanding countryside, yet is within easy reach of Selling village, with its pub, village shop and mainline station.
This delightful period cottage dates back to the early 1800's, yet has been thoughtfully renovated and utterly transformed to create an intelligent fusion of traditional character with modern style and luxury. Features such as traditionally styled radiators, oak internal doors, a contemporary kitchen and bathroom, new central heating with a Nest system, new electrics, many bespoke double glazed windows and contemporary dcor throughout combine to create a wonderfully high specification interior. This blends harmoniously with charming external features, such as pretty white weatherboarding, distinctive arched, leaded windows and a recently re-ridged thatched roof.
The front door opens into a small entrance hall, with lovely porcelain floor tiles which flow into a beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room with a dual aspect. This has been fitted with an excellent range of sleek, contemporary wall and floor units, set around oak work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances. A part glazed oak door leads from the entrance hall to a spacious sitting room, with wide double glazed French doors which flood this room with natural light and open onto the rear garden.
To the left of the sitting room, there are two bedrooms, a single bedroom and a dual aspect double bedroom. To the right of the sitting room, there is a luxuriously appointed shower room, fitted with a stylish, high specification white suite, including a walk-in shower enclosure and finished with attractive porcelain floor tiles with under floor heating.
Rose Cottage is set within beautifully planted and completely secluded gardens, which measure approximately 0.2 acre. These are mainly laid to lawn, with well established and colourful flowerbeds and tall, hedged borders, which provide a tremendous degree of privacy. A driveway leads to a detached, white weather-boarded garage, with power connected to it.
To the rear of the garden, there is a superb white weather-boarded summerhouse, which currently serves as a home office. Also to the rear of the plot, there is a dark weather=boarded timber outbuilding, currently used as a workshop and store, however it may be possible (subject to the necessary consents) to replace this with a more substantial structure, which could possibly serve as a guest annexe.
Rose Cottage is situated in the charming rural hamlet of Oversland, which is situated on the far side of Boughton village, near its church and its golf club. Also close by is the highly sought-after village of Selling, which has a good primary school, a pub, a village shop and a mainline railway station, and is just over half a mile from the property.
