Rosebank Cottage

Rosebank is a charming period cottage, with the oldest part of the property believed to date to the mid-1700’s, created from two attached cottages in 1979 and extended in 1993 to provide a sitting room and two additional bedrooms.
4 good sized double bedrooms, first floor family bathroom, ground floor shower room.
This attractive redbrick cottage (not listed) has a double aspect sitting room with a large wood-burning stove and door to the garden
The dining room, with traditional beams and a cast-iron oil fired stove, also has access via the original front door to the garden.
A snug with an oil fired Aga is adjacent to the galley kitchen and provides an opportunity to create a kitchen/breakfast room.
Set within a ¼ acre garden, this pretty property is set under a clay tile roof with fine views to the Malvern Hills.
A useful entrance porch and boot room opens to the kitchen, with the W.C & shower room to one side.
The first floor landing has a useful study area, with scope for a home office.
Light and bright throughout, with the retention of many original features, this property would benefit from some modernisation, including the installation of central heating.
