The Rosehill in the Fern
A fabulous restoration of a fine Cornish house (Grade II listed) tucked away in almost 6 acres of wooded gardens, orchard and paddock. Conveniently located in a picturesque rural valley just a few miles inland from the north Cornish coast between Camborne and Hayle.
A spacious and versatile arrangement of accommodation comprises elegant reception rooms and bedrooms, galleried landing, uniquely styled bespoke fitted kitchen and
luxurious bathrooms. In addition to the Master and Guest bedroom suites, two further suites of rooms offer the potential for separate annexes. One with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, sitting room and garden access and the other with study, library, bedroom, bathroom and courtyard access.
The house is Grade II listed. It is a handsome Cornish house and a fine example of its period as well as an inspirational example for the restoration of a Regency building which features some later Victorian additions. The restoration and further extension work took two years to complete resulting in a “Certificate of Excellence” being awarded by the Federation of Master Builders for the quality of the work.
The period features that one would expect to find in such a property have been lovingly and painstakingly restored or replaced including beautiful plaster cornices, roses,
arches and plinths along with completely restored “Crown Glass” sash windows with working shutters. There are panelled doors with ornate surrounds, moulded architraves and beautiful coloured staircase windows with brilliant-cut and etched decoration. The staircase itself is an elegant and dominant
feature of the house.
The restoration has also permitted the introduction of an array of modern-day comforts including the installation of mains gas central heating, luxury bathrooms with spa features and a uniquely styled bespoke fitted kitchen with granite worktops. As to be expected the house has been completely rewired and re-plumbed and also re-roofed.
The courtyard single-story roofing has been wet-laid in scantle slate and is a work-of-art. Fundamentally the house offers a very versatile arrangement of accommodation. Whilst large and spacious for a growing family the house could be sub-divided into three areas; the main house, an annex to the rear with access independently from the courtyard and a further apartment on the first floor with access to the garden at ground level.
