Rose Cottage is a charming semi-detached period property situated in the heart of the quintessential Cotswold village of Shilton. Dating back to the 18th century the cottage is full of charm and character boasting original features including exposed beams and stone hearths. The front door opens onto an entrance porch with cloakroom to the right. A glazed door leads into the main hallway laid with limestone flooring which continues throughout the ground level. To the right is the elegant sitting room featuring original beams and an open fireplace and stone hearth. Two pairs of French doors open out onto the terrace area and beautiful gardens beyond. The dining room at the front of the cottage also features oak beams and an open fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with painted units and has a wooden worktop plus a large pantry cupboard. Off the hallway is a separate utility room. Stairs with a wooden handrail rise up to the light and airy first floor landing where tongue and groove latch doors open onto two double bedrooms both with good ceiling height and with windows looking out to the front of the house. There is a family bathroom and an airing cupboard on this floor. A further flight of stairs leads up to bedroom three on the top floor and to an adjoining fourth bedroom/dressing room.

The private and enchanting cottage garden to the rear of the house is a delight and provides a glorious setting. A patio area beside the French doors makes an ideal place for al-fresco dining. The garden is partly laid to lawn and bordered by variety of trees and shrubs. A path runs beside a pretty and well-stocked herbaceous border down to the far end of the garden where the stream meanders its way amongst the willow trees and under bridges to the pond. In addition there is a vegetable plot and greenhouse and several outbuildings. A car port beside the house provides parking for two cars.
