Situated along Dane Road and steeped in history is this period double fronted terrace property, Rose Lodge was built around 1825 and was one of the original buildings on the plot, by the famous Shell Grotto. Offered to the market with NO onward chain, we understand the property was originally a school and features in many history books stating that the grotto was discovered underneath the house when in 1835 Schoolmaster Newlove lowered his son into a hole he found while digging a fish pond in the back garden.
The current owners bought the property five years ago and since then have undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment from re-wiring and re-plumbing to fitting a new bathroom whilst keeping all the charm and character in the property and exposing original features. The property boasts sash windows, high skirtings, original wooden floorboards and fireplaces.
Set back from the road behind a gated entrance and grass front gardens, as soon as you set eyes on the property you appreciate just how special the building is, the ground floor comprises an open-plan lounge/diner with original double glass doors leading out to the garden, a separate reception room to the front and a kitchen designed using reclaimed furniture from a school with an exposed brick wall. There is also an spacious cellar running under the front of the property. To the first floor there is an incredible light and spacious landing with another set of glass double doors leading to a balcony and three good size double bedrooms. There is also a family bathroom with a walk-in shower including exposed wall where the chimney originally was, creating a beautiful arched shape.
