Rosemount is approached from a no-through country lane via a sweeping gravel drive which leads up to the house and a parking/turning area. To one side of the drive is a Heritage style two-bay garage with a lean to log store. Immediately to the front of the house there is a large lawn, which provides the ideal vantage point from which to enjoy views over the property’s garden and far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Beyond this lawn there is a further lawn with a former kitchen garden to one side. Bordering the garden and the entrance drive is an attractive area of mixed woodland with some magnificent mature oaks. Located within the grounds is a timber garden store and a weatherboard and tile barn/wood store which is in need of repair.

Adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room and enclosed on three sides by the house is an attractive sheltered paved courtyard which is ideal for al fresco dining.

Situated on one side of the house and adjacent to the sitting room is a further lawn from which an opening leads through a laurel hedge to a small paddock area. The gardens and grounds provide a lovely tranquil setting for this beautiful period family home. In all about 3 acres.
