Occupying a leafy location in the Staffordshire village of Rolleston on Dove to the north of Burton upon Trent, Old Hall Cottage, a mews house built circa 1800, has an abundance of character and an interesting history.
Originally part of the Mosley Estate, the mews provided accommodation for serving staff, with part of the cottage itself acting as a fire station housing the fire cart and horses. More recent history has seen the cottage being sympathetically extended, with many period features being reinstated by the current owners.
‘We fell in love with the village and made the decision to move here whilst sitting by the roaring fire of the local pub. We wanted a house with character where we could raise our family. We had an overwhelming welcoming feeling when we first stepped inside Old Hall Cottage and we loved the quietness and seclusion of the mews, ’ say the owners.
Rolleston on Dove is a picturesque village with plenty of green space and a pond, waterfall and woodland at its centre. It’s a vibrant community with excellent amenities, including a post office, village shop, two excellent pubs, hotel, social club, church, primary school and pre-school. The village hosts several events throughout the year, including a carnival and agricultural show. It’s ideally located for people commuting to Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham.
‘The house has lots of period charm and character and all renovations are sympathetic to the age of the property. We have landscaped the courtyard and garden to be a relaxing place to spend time.’
‘The kitchen as it’s been the hub of the house where we have enjoyed cooking, chatting and enjoying time with family and friends.’
‘The kitchen opens out onto a lovely secluded courtyard garden, with pizza oven and barbeque, which is great for outside dining. The main garden, which is gated and walled, is very secluded. We feel lucky to live in such a lovely village, one with a great community spirit and where our children have been able to safely walk to school with their friends.’
‘It’s been a wonderful house for hosting family gatherings – the layout and many reception rooms make it a great party house.’
‘We love Old Hall Cottage and will miss its period features and the welcoming atmosphere. We’ve purchased some barns in a nearby village and are planning to convert them – after many happy years it will be hard to leave. The house has been a wonderful place in which to bring up our children and we will miss the village and all that it offers.’
Externally the home has off road parking for numerous vehicles to both the front and the rear of the home in front of the respective garages. There is a stone driveway which sweeps around to the rear of Mosley Mews and serves all of the properties. To the immediate rear of the home there is a lovely terrace garden with flagstone paving and walled gardens. This is a great sun trap in the mornings and has a built in pizza oven with gated access leading to the rear parking. Opposite the front door of the home, and across the driveway, is the main garden. A beautifully landscaped and private garden area surrounded by mature trees with a flagstone terrace and barked borders, perfect for entertaining. While secluded, it enjoys all day sunlight.
The Cottage is located in the heart of Rolleston On Dove.
