Rosebank Farm is a highly individual country property, dating from 1735 when it was built as a farmhouse. The house has been completely renovated and extended since the current owners bought it in 1971.
Period features include the inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, a galleried fitted study area and a bar area, beyond which is the south-facing garden room. The kitchen has been fitted out in traditional style and the morning room has very fine French windows out onto the terrace.
Upstairs four bedrooms lead off the main landing, while a further staircase leads up to the master suite with its unique round spider-web window.
The terrace is great for outdoor entertaining and comes with a barbecue hut currently used as a gym. A traditional outbuilding has been converted into a party barn; a further range of outbuildings includes a workshop, tractor shed, garden store and a games room.
