About This Property

Detached four bedroomed period residence having been sympathetically renovated throughout, set in the heart of Atherington village & benefitting from off street parking, a large stone garage & enclosed walled garden.

Rose Cottage was constructed in 1733 offering many of its original and charming features, yet has been sympathetically renovated to provide a prime residence with new décor throughout whilst retaining its character that such a historic building brings. Set in the heart of the village, Rose Cottage offers everything desired of a family home with generously proportioned rooms and space for the whole family to enjoy. The period property is not listed and has the benefits of double glazing and oil fired central heating throughout. Set behind a stone wall with a portico leading to the impressive front door, that includes the historic pulley door bell, leading to an entrance hall with a central staircase and access to the two reception rooms. The first of the reception rooms to the left has an impressive fireplace with stone surround, wood burning stove and slate hearth making a real feature of the room. The room is light and airy with a large window looking out to the front aspect of the property. As with the accommodation throughout, the room benefits from high ceilings. The second reception room also benefits from a fireplace with wood burning stove and an old bread oven to the back, surrounded by an exposed stone wall making a real feature of this room. The front aspect window again allows for plenty of natural light to flow and there is built in storage cupboards and shelves. The second reception room gives access through to the kitchen which is the heart of this home and overlooks the rear garden. A new kitchen has been fitted with granite effect worktops and white gloss base units, a stainless steel sink & drainer with mixer tap and integrated oven and hob. There is an oil fired Stanley which operates the central heating system and with the timber mantel makes a central feature of the room. The understairs cupboard provides plenty of storage and from the kitchen both the utility and boot room can be accessed. The utility room has also been newly fitted with a range of wall and base units and granite effect worktop, a stainless steel sink with mixer tap. The exposed stone walls against the white gloss units make a fantastic contrast. The boot room is accessed via the rear stable door and lends itself perfectly for a busy family home with plenty of space for coat hooks and muddy wellington boots. The cloakroom with WC is accessed from the boot room.
The first floor is accessed from the central staircase that leads to a split level landing. Each bedroom has a characteristic feature with the master bedroom boasting superb gable roof trusses, an exposed stone wall and lovely views across the rear garden and beyond. The second bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes and a timber mantle above the front aspect window. The third bedroom also benefits from a built in wardrobe and has a characterful panelled ceiling. Finally the fourth bedroom has wooden panelling and has been fitted with additional electrical sockets so could be used as a home office if desired. The family bathroom has been newly fitted with a white suite comprising a panelled bath, walk in shower unit, close couple WC, wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.

The property enjoys a delightful and yet readily accessible position situated in the centre of the pretty village of Atherington. Atherington provides a thriving village hall located at the playing fields. Here there is a pop-up post office which also provides the facility to order bread and eggs. There is a hair salon, two all weather tennis courts, children’s play area and football pitch. Further local facilities available at nearby High Bickington and Umberleigh.
