An attractive period cottage set in the heart of Wrington Village. Having been occupied by the same family for over 100 years, Rose Cottage is a recognised and much loved landmark of the village. Now in need of full modernisation throughout, this is a wonderful opportunity to restore a unique family home and it bring it back to the glory of its past times.
This pretty painted stone cottage, is set back from the road by a paved front garden enclosed by wrought iron railings to the front with local stone walls to either side. Entered via a handy storm porch you continue into the entrance hallway, off which you will find two front facing reception rooms which could be utilised as a living room and separate dining room if desired. It is believed there may be a hidden inglenook fireplace within the living room owing to the thickness of the side wall. To the end of the hallway there is a large storage cupboard and a door leading through to a kitchen and ground floor bathroom.
A winding staircase rises to the first floor where you will find four rooms, three which would make perfect family bedrooms and the fourth that could be utilised as first floor bathroom should you wish to bring one upstairs.
To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard garden and a small outbuilding/garden shed.
Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington (www.wringtonsomerset.org.uk) is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset. Picturesque with a lengthy and interesting history, it benefits from facilities usually reserved for a larger town, including two pubs (one with an excellent restaurant), church and a chapel, a primary school (awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted), post office, public transport, petrol station, pharmacy, dentist, coffee shop, grocery shop, off licence/convenience shop and even two florist/gift shops (one in the village centre and one on the outskirts). Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk), also recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (with transport for local children provided daily), and which also benefits from a modern sports complex open to the general public. Further schools, both state and private, are at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and the Chew Valley. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles. The village itself is within commuting distance of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway station at Yatton.
From the centre of the village turn into Silver Street and the property can be found on your left hand side just past the village pharmacy and the turning for Lawrence Road as you round the corner.
