Located in the highly desirable conservation village of Harlaxton, Rose Cottage is a unique property, skillfully restored, updated and improved by the current vendors to provide a very well proportioned, special and very comfortable home.
Once inside the property the attention to detail is clear to see, many of the original period features some dating from 1790 have been retained and include: a stone well and its winding mechanism, mullion windows, wooden latch doors, cast iron window fittings, leaded lights, original tile hanging, lath and plaster walls, exposed stone and brickwork, turret spiral stairwell, revealed well head and ceiling beams, priest’s hole, open fires, multifuel stoves and a fabulous original bespoke chimney pot in the shape of a castle chess piece, a particular feature of Harlaxton village houses.
There are four reception rooms all of which benefit from dual aspect windows at least, and a dining hall which has well placed, bi-folding doors which open out to the sun terrace. This room also links the main property to the garage which has a studio annexe above. To the rear of the property there is a comprehensively equipped kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and an island unit which can also be used as a breakfast bar. Leading off from the kitchen is the utility room, cloakroom and a bright and spacious living room.
The master bedroom with a four piece en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom are all located on the first floor.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
To the front of the property is a garage with a studio annexe above (ideal as extra bedroom accommodation, working from home office or cinema/games room) a further garage and a workshop. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a sun terrace which has been thoughtfully designed as there is access to it from the dining hall and is a wonderful addition to the many reception rooms throughout the summer months. The rear garden offers privacy and tranquility with beautiful views of the village church, a bespoke, handcrafted garden gazebo and several patio or terrace areas.
