Rose Cottage
Situated in a particularly tranquil small hamlet with panoramic views and being within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are excellent walks and bike rides through the surrounding countryside including towards the beach of Brighstone Bay. The Isle of Wight Cycle Route passes through Thorncross leading to a network of country lanes. The nearby poplar village of Brighstone (around 1 mile distant) has good local facilities including a shop, newsagents, primary school and doctor’s surgery as well as a popular tennis club. There is excellent access from the property to a number of beaches along the south-western coast of the island as well as glorious downland to the north.

Rose Cottage is one of a pair of 17th Century cottages that were extensively refurbished in around 1998 and have been subsequently holiday let. A range of period features remain including impressive period beams and attractive period fireplace with a bread oven within Pool Cottage. Each cottage has gated access to a separate parking area and a largely west facing garden with large terraces and a principally lawned garden extending to the field to the rear where there is the option of purchasing some additional land, (of about a quarter of an acre behind each cottage).

Ground Floor

Entrance Porch

Outside
A gated gravel driveway leads to a parking space whilst a low stone wall runs the majority of the boundary with the lane enclosing a largely lawned garden extending up to a hedge backing onto a field. An extensive terrace adjoins the southern and western elevations whilst immediately to the front of the property there is a further terrace from which the views can be enjoyed, as well as a pedestrian gate with a stone path leading to the front door.

Note It is understood that there was formerly an opening adjacent to the entrance lobby into Pool Cottage which could easily be recreated. There is the option of purchasing additional land to the rear (approx. 0.27 acre behind Rose Cottage and 0.25 an acre behind Pool Cottage).
