Rose Cottage is a distinguished, Grade II Listed property nestled along Main Street yet is set well back from the road enabling you to immerse yourself in the beauty this charming property offers, and the feel of being quiet and secluded.
The property artfully combines features which are typical of a Charnwood cottage such as beamed ceilings and commanding fireplaces alongside the everyday requirements of modern living with a combination of striking and cosy reception rooms, generous bedrooms and stylish bathrooms. Rose Cottage is a perfect family home.
Once comprising of two individual cottages, with parts which date back to the 16th century, together they now offer four bedrooms, adaptable to six, three well-appointed bathrooms, and four spacious reception rooms including a lovely sitting room, adorned with a striking exposed cruck beam and two hearths.
The heart of the home is the farmhouse kitchen with inglenook fireplace, plenty of space for a dining table and built-in appliances which include a fridge and dishwasher plus space for a range cooker. To keep this area cosy, there is underfloor heating. The utility room off provides further useful storage space and the ground floor is completed with a cloaks/WC.
The garden room is truly stunning and boasts a fully glazed gable providing an abundance of natural light and offers a seamless transition to the outdoors.
Upstairs is typical of a joint cottage; the first staircase leads from the kitchen up to the principle bedroom, dressing room and en-suite along with a further bedroom showcasing a feature fire surround and beautiful bathroom featuring a freestanding bath and walk-in shower cubicle as well as built-in vanity units. From this landing is a further staircase leading to a study/landing space (which could be utilised as a bedroom if required) which in turn leads to a further double bedroom.
The second staircase leads from the sitting room and up to a through room and in turn to a double bedroom (which could be 2 separate bedrooms if desired or a study/dressing area to the double bedroom) and another immaculate bathroom with claw foot bath, walk-in shower and stylish vanity units. This area could be perfect as a guest suite.
Enveloped by quintessential English cottage gardens which have been thoughtfully laid out with space to entertain, establish a vegetable garden or kick a football. There is parking for numerous vehicles behind a pair of electric gates and a coach house garage with studio above was added in the early 2010’s which provides covered parking, storage and a great place to work from home.
Situated a stone’s throw to the scenic Bradgate Park and Newtown Linford village cricket pitch, Rose Cottage is perfectly positioned for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits and hobbies. Waking up of a weekend and enjoying breakfast at one of the many local cafes is a treat whilst there are two public houses to frequent, The Bradgate and Working Men’s Club. For families, the village primary school is nearby and bus routes lead to neighbouring villages and onto major local towns.
