 Description

The coach house inspired design of Higher Rosebank is informed by its neighbouring architectural styles whilst its southerly aspect and positioning has been calculated to maximise solar gain. The pleasing, clean lines of this property come from a carefully chosen and juxtaposed pallet of modern materials incorporated in ‘Chalk White’ rendering and vernacular stonework set under a natural slate roof.

As part of the design ethos ‘to bring the outside in’ expansive window and door openings on all levels achieve this with stunning effect. Noteworthy is the double-height fully glazed reception hall; the living floor view lines and the first floor mullion inspired landing window and its aspect out and on through the guest bedroom to its balcony. Set over two principal levels, the interplay of the ‘L’ shaped design creates a lower garden level which the front door opens into a double height wall of glass which provides an abundance of light, a theme repeated through the house. Off this reception is a study/bed 5 plus a cloakroom (and possible shower room), whilst a utility room leads into the integral garaging.

Climbing the stairs, passing the bank of glazing and rising to the ‘living’ level arriving at the sitting room the view lines reinforce this harmonious space. At this juncture, doubling back passed the glass wall is the master bedroom with its own en suite and dressing room, this room is focused with a corner window taking a view out and along the frontage of the house. Back in the sitting room with its wood burner as its focal point, a full depth view is achieved right through the house out to the covered terrace off the kitchen. From the dining area a staircase rises to the first floor landing, the mullion inspired window captures the best of the stunning view. On this bedroom level at one end is the exceptional guest bedroom with an en suite shower room and built in wardrobes which boasts a private balcony, accessed via a French door, that leads out in to the garden. Both this suite and bedroom three have corner windows to enjoy the view whilst bedroom four and the main bathroom look out over the rear walled garden.

The approach passes the classic architecture of its neighbour, a former merchant’s house, into a gated driveway to the front of the integral garage. The garden shape informs that of the house, being L’ shaped it is predominately walled on three sides and levels with local stone capped walling and extends to approximately 750 m2 and includes a 5m x 4.1m covered terrace with a  5 x 2.1m balcony.
