Old Rosemore is situated just outside Whitbourne village in a wonderful rural but not isolated position surrounded by rolling countryside with Teme Valley views and walks on offer. A long private drive shared by one other property leads up to Old Rosemore where a five bar wooden gate opens into the gravelled parking and turning area. The property is a charming black and white timber framed and stone residence converted from period farm buildings some 30 years ago with exposed beams and stonework, offering tremendous character throughout and flexible living space benefitting from not being listed allowing more freedom to alter without restrictions. The grounds around Old Rosemore of over 3 acres, abundant with wildlife, offer a diverse natural attraction for families of all ages and include two pony paddocks and stabling. The solid oak entrance door opens into a wonderfully light and spacious reception and dining hall with a two storey window enjoying open views to the surrounding countryside. Off the hall there is a cloakroom with a further cloakroom to the other end of the house. The very spacious drawing room is ideal for entertaining and features an exposed stone working fireplace and French doors opening out to a southerly garden terrace. There is also a separate substantial well-proportioned sitting room with a multi-fuel log burner sat on a flagstone hearth. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of floor and wall mounted pine kitchen cabinets with electric hob and a centrepiece oil fired Aga with two ovens and two hotplates within a feature recess. Off the kitchen is a study/snug with fitted book shelving, staircase to a first floor landing and a cast stove with attractive exposed flue sat on a quarry tiled hearth. Further off is a rear hall with a stable door out to the front courtyard. Off the rear hall is a utility or boot room with a Belfast sink, space for numerous laundry and utility appliances and a stable door to the rear garden. A solid wood staircase extends from the reception hall to the principal galleried first floor landing, off which is a large master bedroom with recently fitted ensuite shower room and door access to an extensive loft storage. There is a further good sized bedroom, both bedrooms enjoying excellent countryside views. There is also a refitted contemporary family bathroom with a freestanding oval bath, separate shower enclosure, pedestal wash hand basin, wc and bidet. A second staircase extending from the study/snug leads to a further two double bedrooms, also enjoying wonderful countryside views and a second family bathroom. Completing the accommodation to the lower floor is an annex with a fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a double bedroom with seating area and an attractive square bay window, fitted wardrobes and ensuite double shower. The annex offers a great space for an elderly relative, teenage child or a fifth guest bedroom.
The drive to Old Rosemore passes an ancient pond and onwards to the generous gravelled parking and turning area with central raised circular shrub border. Attached to the house is a double garage with two single up and over doors and an internal entrance door to the rear hall.
The generous gardens which predominately lie to the south extend to 3.15 acres and have matured over many years and include an orchard of specimen trees such as walnut and a selection of fruit trees. A low stone wall divides the gravel parking area from the gardens which run down to a timber stable block with two loose boxes and two paddocks. From the orchard the land slopes down to a large pool with timber jetty abundant with pond plants and beyond this pool is a smaller feeder pond which together provide a haven for wildlife. To the rear of the house is a lawned area and in a southerly aspect from the sitting room.is a paved terrace with further lawns.
