Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Set on a plot in excess of 0.5 acres in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Rose Cottage is tucked away down a no-through lane in the lovely village of Burrington. With a picturesque 13th century church, village school and direct access to The Mendip Hills this really is a country lovers paradise.

Rose Cottage is the perfect marriage of old and new. An orangery connects the original cottage providing timeless cosy accommodation, with a more recent conversion of an attached barn with bright airy rooms and modern features such as underfloor heating supplied by a ground heat source pump.

Another outstanding feature of this property is its delightfully secluded landscaped gardens.

An elegant front door leads straight into an extremely spacious reception hall/orangery with beautiful tiling and underfloor heating. With windows to the front and back, French doors to the garden and a roof lantern this area is flooded with light and provides an exceptionally attractive welcome to the property. Heading left is another capacious similarly styled reception room overlooking the garden and paved dining terrace, providing an ideal setting for gatherings and al fresco dining. The two rooms together provide a magnificent space for entertaining.

Perfectly complementing these is an additional room overlooking the garden which could be used as a games room/bedroom 4, a downstairs shower room, and a fabulous sitting/music room. A conversion of a former barn outbuilding this room has a real "wow" factor with a double height beamed ceiling, beautiful original lintels, a picture window with village views and solid oak flooring with underfloor heating.

Transitioning to the older section of the cottage, a breakfast room featuring quarry-tiled flooring opens to a spacious farmhouse-style kitchen. This central hub of the home showcases handcrafted cabinetry, a Rayburn range, a double oven, space for a dishwasher, and an induction hob. An adjacent laundry/shower room adds practicality, offering space for laundry appliances and extra storage.

A door from the kitchen leads to the dining room to the rear which is a lovely bright and airy room with a recessed window and doorway with access to the drive.

The ground floor accommodation is completed with a cosy sitting room. This room is packed full of character emanating from a traditional beamed ceiling, attractive minster-style stone fireplace with wood burner and lovely bay window with fantastic views of the garden.

Moving upstairs one immediately senses the tranquil ambiance of the property within the two spacious double bedrooms boasting picturesque rural and village vistas. Additionally, this floor has a corridor of fitted wardrobes leading at the end to an airy, spacious family bathroom with bath, separate shower, storage and a lovely view of the garden. A further double bedroom, adorned with beamed ceilings, on the third floor, captures sweeping views of the Mendip Hills. This room also offers fitted cupboards, bookshelves, and an appealing window seat.

Outside - the external spaces of Rose Cottage are truly exceptional. Bordered by stone walls, the long lawn is beautifully framed with borders adorned by a rich variety of mature shrubs, perennials, and trees, creating a sanctuary for wildlife and ensuring the owner's privacy. Winding pathways crisscross the garden, leading to hidden gems such as a charming newt-inhabited pond, a functional "working area" with a shed, bonfire zone, and compost bins, as well as an ample kitchen garden complete with raised beds, a greenhouse, and fruit cages.
