ROSE COTTAGE is a 3 bedroom semi detached cottage situated in The Square, a highly sought after location in Freshwater Bay. The bay itself is a short walk from the front door, as is Tennyson Down with its stunning cliff top walks to The Needles. The cottage was built in the very late 1800's and retains character features including the original front door which is now the door to the hallway. The current owners have made this a lovely family home and added double glazed french doors off the south west facing living room to the front garden, which is bathed in afternoon and evening sunshine during the summer months. The recently extended entrance hall adds light and excellent utility storage. Further accommodation includes a dining room, kitchen, study, 3 bedrooms, bathroom and WC.
The cottage has a very large garden to the rear and an enclosed garden with climbing roses to the front, plus parking for two vehicles.
The Square is a hidden gem of the bay with a lovely community feel, and is situated just off Gate Lane. Within the bay itself are Dimbola Lodge museum and Tea Room and the iconic St Agnes Church, the only thatched church on the island. Within short walking distance are The Piano Cafe, Farringford House, and Orchards, a great little corner shop run by the same family since 1885. The larger village of Freshwater itself is also easily accessible on foot.
The accommodation is described in further detail below.
A brick paved path leads to a smart wooden double glazed door opening to the entrance hall.
