Rose Villa has some fine principal receptions rooms all of which enjoy a southerly outlook with generous-sized sash windows and French doors opening on to the garden terrace. The character of this period property remains largely intact with detailed moulding plasterwork, deep skirting boards, architraves and a fine central staircase. There are fireplaces on both floors and engineered oak flooring sweeps through much of the ground floor with underfloor heating below.
The orangery with its impressive glazing faces south and links the double fronted section of the principal house to the glorious drawing room. This elegantly proportioned room has a cast iron basket grate fireplace and triptych of deep sash windows overlooking the garden. The family kitchen breakfast room is open plan, extending to the bay window at the front. In addition there is a very useful, separate laundry/utility room. The fitted kitchen has black granite work surfaces, an AGA range cooker with extractor fan, double enamel sink, an integrated Bosch dishwasher, Caple wine cooler and space for a larder fridge. The tiled floor meets the wooden floor of the dining area where there is a wood burning stove and French doors on to the garden terrace. The bathrooms are fully tiled with contemporary fixtures and fittings, and the bedrooms all have generous ceiling heights.
The Coach House
Functioning as an independent house in its own right, this converted coach house has three sets of French doors facing the garden and drive. There are engineered floorboards throughout the ground floor with an open fire within a stone mantel in the sitting room. The fitted kitchen is open to the dining room and has Shaker style units with an enamel sink, Neff oven with hob and extractor, and an integrated Miele dishwasher. A separate laundry/utility room houses the boiler. The bedrooms all have vaulted ceilings and the main bedroom suite has a dressing area. There are three fitted bathrooms all with contemporary styling, one on the ground floor.
Double timber gates from Mitchell Lane open to the block paved driveway at the rear of the house with parking for several cars, a stretch of lawn and detached coach house, all set behind a high brick wall. The front garden is also accessed by double timber gates from Mitchell Lane. This is a broad and generous garden with a small pond, bounded by a well established hedge, mature trees, and in part a high wall on the eastern boundary. A raised stone terrace extends the width of the front elevation linking to the principal reception rooms. Shallow stone steps descend to an area of gravel and a large area of lawn beyond.
