A fabulous detached period cottage offering versatile and stylish accommodation in a highly sought after and peaceful hamlet on the southern fringes of the city, backing onto open farmland with wonderful gardens and paddock of approaching 2 acres. Listed Grade II as being of Special Historic or Architectural interest, the house is believed to date back to the early 17th century and has been beautifully renovated and thoughtfully extended to a very high standard, carefully retaining and enhancing the period charm and character yet with a contemporary feel for practical modern living. With a bedroom, kitchen/living room and shower room on the ground floor (complete with a separate entrance door and garden), the property offers well balanced and versatile accommodation and would also suit those wishing to work from home, house a dependent relative or, perhaps, try Airbnb. There is an extensive driveway providing parking for many vehicles, various outbuildings (to include stabling workshop, garden room/home office, sheds/garden stores and a hen house).

The extensive rear gardens are approximately 210’ x 155’ in size, have been loving designed and tended to create several fabulous and interesting sections; be it for vegetables, an orchard, flowers, trees and shrubs. There are lawns, numerous sitting areas to take account of the sunshine or shade, a chicken run and coop and a lovely garden room/home garden office, greenhouse, various sheds, a workshop, outbuildings and garden stores.

A separate paddock is approached either directly from the garden or by the gated access on the lane and is about 450’ x 72’ in size.

Rose Cottage occupies a special and peaceful position, standing on the edge of open countryside yet in the heart of Pipehouse - a very popular and convenient hamlet on the edge of the thriving village of Freshford (with its excellent Primary School, community shop/café, railway station and riverside pub). Wonderful walks are available in the immediate vicinity, the centre of Bath is only 5 or so miles away (served by bus or train from Freshford halt), whilst the various shops and amenities in the pretty town of Bradford on Avon are also nearby.
Although not necessarily the quickest, the easiest way to reach Rose Cottage is to leave the centre of Bath heading south on the A36 Warminster Road. Proceed through the traffic lights at Monkton Combe, over the viaduct and up the hill. The road levels off and after about ½ mile you will see the right hand turning to Pipehouse . The house will be found on the right hand side after about ¼ mile.
