Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Rose Bank, originally the village piggery, is a charming country cottage believed to date back to the 1750's. With whitewashed stone elevations, contrasting clay roof tiles, dove grey joinery and set centrally in a lovely garden, it is an exceptionally pretty property and ideally located in the centre of Congresbury with all its excellent amenities.

Extended about 100 years ago it now offers spacious family accommodation with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 inviting reception rooms all featuring traditional elements. It also has many attributes which add character, including beamed ceilings, recently replaced hardwood recessed windows, many with seats, wooden doors, and cosy feature fireplaces.

A welcoming entrance porch leads straight into the hallway. Turning left you'll step into a beautifully proportioned sitting room with a magnificent, beamed ceiling and an inglenook fireplace with a warming log burner. Each window is recessed, providing delightful window seats from which to admire the garden.

Continuing through an inner hallway, you'll discover another spacious reception room, currently arranged as a playroom/office. This room also features a beamed ceiling, recessed windows, another substantial inglenook fireplace, and charming shelving crafted from the hayloft staircase.

Moving through to the back of the property you will find a superb 31ft kitchen/ breakfast room. With a southwest aspect it is flooded with light thanks to plentiful windows overlooking the landscaped gardens. The kitchen area is furnished in the style of a farmhouse kitchen, featuring wooden units and worktops. It also includes an integrated electric hob, a double oven, and space for a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The breakfast area not only has space for a large table but also a freestanding dresser.

Off the kitchen, providing a practical area for storage there is both a back lobby with space for coats and shoes and access to the back garden, together with a roomy cupboard under the stairs.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful laundry/utility room offering not only extra storage but also space for a washing machine, dryer and the added benefit of a downstairs w.c. and shower.

Rising to the first floor the property is fashioned in the style of a Somerset long house with a long landing providing access to the bedroom accommodation. Velux windows ensure that this landing is attractively light and bright.

Here you will find 4 bedrooms, each with their own character and views over the front garden. 3 out of the 4 are large doubles and have fitted wardrobes, some of them with far reaching views towards Wrington Hill. At the end of the landing is a large family bathroom with stripped floors and a three-piece suite.

Outside - Approached via a classic five bar gate that leads to a large part gravelled and part tarmac driveway, Rose bank sits almost centrally in its grounds which are approaching 0.4 of an acre. With mature hedging and many established trees including silver birch and a magnificent horse chestnut, it is incredibly private and has a lovely open lawned garden to the front and a more formally landscaped garden to the rear.

The garden also features many attractive seating areas including a wonderful pergola with wisteria and clematis, a quaint "bus stop" shelter where one can enjoy a sheltered morning coffee together with numerous other terraces and hidden spots.

In addition, Rose bank offers ample driveway parking, a single garage and a studio/barn that offers the potential both for an extension or potential annexe to the property STPP.
