Rosebank is an unlisted family home and comes to the market for the first time in over 60 years. It is located in a conservation area, in the most sought after location of Ringmore, Shaldon on the River Teign.



Rosebank's long history includes being occupied by two families with the north wing accessed via its own door to provide a 2-bed letting cottage. The house retains many original features, including large sash windows which provide fantastic views over the garden and to the river Teign.

From the kitchen, a further door provides access to the utility area where there is plumbing and storage area where there is plumbing for a washing machine and electrics. Door to outside courtyard with path to rear gardens/orchard. From the main hallway, a flight of stairs leads to the first floor landing with access to the master bedroom which has a bay sash window with stunning views.

The property is complemented by a level area of lawn to the front of the property. To the rear there are various areas of lawn providing separate garden area to the rear of the north wing or via a number of winding pathways and steps through a former stone walled boundary into the main area of garden and orchard. There are former vegetable areas with a paved level area for the greenhouse and a large number of apple trees providing dessert and cooking apples. This area has many paths running through and offers the purchaser the opportunity to create a larger area of formal gardens if they wish.



The property benefits from a detached single garage, pitched roof and provides ample space for a car or boat storage with work bench at the rear and to the side. Alongside there is parking for at least 2 vehicles. Right of way from the road to the left of property leading to the orchard. There is a pathway which leads round to the side of the property to a stone and brick built shed for garden storage.



Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are connected.



There is a restrictive covenant placed upon the rear orchard of Rosebank in favour of a neighbouring property, which prohibits any residential development other than a greenhouse, summerhouse or shed. On two occasions this century, the last being 2012, flooding of the driveway and garden has led to 5cm in the two sitting rooms of the house. Occasional flooding at other times. Flooding alleviated by environment agency scheme.



From Shaldon, proceed towards Ringmore passing the Shipwrights Arms. The road follows the banks of the River Teign and, just before the road goes uphill, the turning to the property is on the left hand side.
