Rose Cottage is a charming period country property with its core dating back several hundred years. The house offers good family accommodation with the benefit of a well-proportioned drawing room and sitting room, as well as a comfortable dining room situated conveniently next to the kitchen. The kitchen has large windows looking out over the pretty cottage gardens and is fitted with wooden cabinets and an Aga cooker. Upstairs the main bedroom with en suite shower room can be found, benefitting from a triple aspect with lovely rural views at each window, as well as three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Rose Cottage is in Mortimer West End, a hamlet to the west of the village of Mortimer; an active village on the Berkshire Hampshire border.
The village of Mortimer itself is a thriving one with an excellent range of local facilities including a supermarket, bank and post office. The larger towns of Reading and Newbury offer
a more comprehenisve range of amenities,
including larger independent retailers,
theatres and sporting facilities. The village
itself offers excellent commuter links with the
easily-accessible M4 and M3 motorways and a
railway station boasting a short journey time
to Reading or Basingstoke and good links to
London Paddington and London Waterloo
respectively. The range of state and private schooling in the area is excellent, including Bradfield College, Elstree School, Downe House and Pangbourne College. There are a variety of recreational pursuits available in the area, and the surrounding countryside is renowned for walking and riding.

Rose cottage is situated off a no through track in an attractive and tucked away rural environment. The house sits well in its grounds and abuts Englefield Estate land, providing a beautiful outlook. There is a two bay green oak frame garage building and cedar greenhouse. The garden is laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and mixed borders. On the south elevation the gardens finish at a small stream beyond which is Englefield Estate woodland. There is a large south facing terrace overlooking these attractive grounds.
