Property DetailsA charming and well-proportioned partly thatched
cottage that has been extensively extended
3 Reception rooms
Boot room & utility
Rookley Cottage is a delightful multi-layered partly thatched cottage with the original parts believed to date back to the 17th and 19th centuries.
The property has a wealth of period features
typical of a cottage of its age. The current owners have sympathetically extended with a versatile architect-designed extension using traditional materials to echo the original building. This offers a very adaptable living space, with two ground-floor bedrooms, a bathroom and a garden room/study with a wood burning stove, offering the possibility of semi-independence for, say, teenage children, students or elderly relatives.
Also on the ground floor is a boot room, utility,
kitchen/ breakfast room with Rayburn, a good size dining room with a large inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and also access to the cellar. A stepped hallway leads through to the large sitting room with a wood burning stove. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms with a family bathroom.
The majority of the rooms are double aspect with views over the garden and the orientation sets the house away from the line of the road, making it feel peaceful and secluded.
The property is approached from the village
road into a leafy driveway with parking/turning
space at the top. The large secluded garden of approx. 2/3 of an acre has many mature trees, including fruit trees, and an extraordinary variety of cultivated and wild plants. There are also productive vegetable areas, wildlife pond, greenhouse and several sheds. The garden is
unusually rich in birds and other wildlife, which have been encouraged by making wild areas
ranging from small meadows to woodland
