DescriptionSavills are delighted to present to the open market Rose Hill House, Lee Road, a deceptively spacious period home in excellent decorative order situated within a quiet cul de sac setting.
The property was re-wired, replumbed and refurbished in recent years whilst keeping its period property charm and character.
Originally built c. 1895, the property has grown in size along the way and today is set out over three levels with each level maximising space and natural light thanks to its southerly orientation. Rose Hill House is a six bedroom plus study, family home situated in a little known cul de sac just off the start of the Lee Road, it is within minutes of UCC, CUH and the Bons Secours hospitals.
Upon arrival you are greeted by a coded pedestrian entrance and a large double garage with electric roller shutter doors providing off street parking for two cars. Making your way into the front garden brings you to a real city oasis where you can hear the sound of the Lee fields river cascading down the channel. This is an inspiring and private space made up of a level and manicured lawn space, limestone patio, raised flower beds and a repointed stone wall with recently fitted cast iron railings. Here you will also find an array of planting to include Wisteria plant making its way around the arched doorway and a beautiful Olive tree.
Stepping over the threshold of Rose Hill House brings you to an inviting hallway with high ceilings and original plasterwork. On the ground floor you will find a relaxing drawing room, library, a calming dining room, bright and private kitchen/breakfast room, a large utility room, guest lavatory and a perfectly placed wine cellar.
Making your way up the gradually ascending staircase, you will find a laundry room and services room on the return of the stairs followed by three bedrooms on the first floor including the maser bedroom which is home to a large dressing room and en-suite. The top of the house which is an addition to the original building provides three more bedrooms, a large office space and shower room.
The rear garden space can be accessed from both the ground floor and first floor. Here you will find two tiers of garden space bounded by an original stone wall. This space is almost completely private, the upper tier would make an ideal herb and vegetable garden.
Rose Hill House is ideally situated for anybody looking to be close to the convenience of the city whilst living in a beautiful period home which has been renovated and refurbished.
