Property Summary

Now only the second time on the open market in 170 years, Rosebank Cottage was built around 1800 originally as a two-up, two-down typically Georgian cottage and extended between about 1852 and 1870 to its current footprint. The house was in the ownership of the same family from 1852 and reconfigured from time-to-time to meet their needs and part of the building was often let. A sign above the original front door advertised Henry Edmead, a boot and shoemaker, who lived in the property in the late Victorian period. In 2013 it was purchased by the current owners, sympathetically renovated and reverted to a single dwelling.

There are many original features including open fireplaces, two of which now have multi-fuel/wood-burners, timber floorboards and authentic lime plaster and there are modern sash windows. The excellent accommodation can be very flexible and adapted for modern day living/working from home. There are five bedrooms, four of which are doubles, with the 5th being used as an office and a further study area. There are also 3 lovely reception rooms, kitchen with a pantry, utility room and two bathrooms. There is plenty of off road parking to the left and more could easily be put in to the right, where there is a prefab garage currently used for storage.

Blays Lane is approached from Wick Road, so close to the grounds of Virginia Water/Windsor Great Park, yet still only a five minute walk to the village shops and schools. For those who need to commute into London Egham station is about 1 mile away with access to Waterloo in approx. 40 minutes. Junction 13 of the M25 can be reached within about a 5-6 minute drive, giving easy access to the M3, M4 and M40. EPC Rating: D
