Rolle Cottage is a Grade II Listed, thatched property which we understand dates from the late 18th or early 19th Century. In more recent years the property has been the subject of considerable improvement and expenditure which has been sympathetically carried out, thus retaining much of its original character and charm.
The beautifully presented accommodation is well proportioned and offers many features including oak parquet and wide planked flooring to a number of the rooms. There are two good size reception rooms, both enjoying a dual aspect and there is a separate dining room along with a good size kitchen/breakfast room which has a feature vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers along with wide French doors accessing the garden. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a good range of storage, solid wood worksurfaces along with integrated appliances and a fitted AGA. The ground floor also offers a useful cloakroom/WC and accessed from the reception hall, turning stone steps lead down to a cellar.
To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master bedroom being exceptional with its original feature barrel-vaulted ceiling, along with feature fireplace. There are well fitted en suite shower rooms to both the master bedroom and bedroom two and there is a very spacious family bathroom which includes a freestanding roll top bath.
From the first floor landing stairs rise to a further bedroom/hobbies room which has exposed roof timbers.
The accommodation is tastefully decorated, has quality fittings throughout and features gas fired central heating.
The property is approached via Buckley Road through electric double gates which open onto a good size parking and turning area, giving access to a detached double garage (5.85m x 5.4m) which has an electric up and over door.
The gardens are very well presented and have been designed to provide interest and colour throughout the year. There are areas of lawn, with adjoining well stocked shrub borders and adjoining the rear of the house there are extensive paved areas which are ideal for entertaining, provide privacy and enjoy views over the neighbouring farm land.
Beyond this is a large partly walled area of garden which was a former orchard. Mainly laid to lawn, this area enjoys lots of privacy and lovely views over the valley.
Within a few steps of the kitchen is a detached stone former stable which has been cleverly converted into a good size laundry room with ‘Belfast’ sink and offers lots of space. Adjoining this is a useful garden/mower store. There is also a large timber built summerhouse/gym (4.4m x 2.9m) which is partly glazed with double doors and has light, power and a TV point.
The property offers a rare opportunity to acquire a beautifully restored home which enjoys a most attractive sheltered position, along with stunning views from both the house and gardens.
Rolle Cottage occupies a slightly elevated position, enjoying a south westerly aspect and takes full advantage of some lovely views over the adjoining farm land and across Sidbury village to the surrounding hills.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside and lovely walks, the property is within walking distance of the village centre where local amenities and a regular bus service can be found. Sidmouth which is set on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast lies approximately three miles away and offers an excellent range of facilities, with a busy High Street having a number of independent shops, popular cafes and eateries, beautiful public gardens along with the Regency esplanade and seafront.
