About the property

DESCRIPTION A rare opportunity to acquire a most substantial, detached period property situated in a premier location within a very short walking distance of the High Street and Sea. Rosebanks has not come to the market for nearly forty years and has been a much-loved family home during that time. The house has period features a plenty with high ceilings, cast iron fireplaces in virtually every room and an interesting bifurcated landing. There is a private driveway, garaging and a very generous walled garden. This beautiful home is now in need of refurbishment and early viewing of this rare gem is an absolute must.
