Abbey House is a detached stone village property believed to date back to the 1850’s and was probably built for a manager or engineer employed by the Ironstone Company who were extracting the mineral deposits in Rosedale. At the time of the property’s construction, the old Priory (which was established in 1154), was still fairly intact and this provided a ready source of cut, dressed stone with which to build Abbey House along with several other properties in the village. Today, all that is left of the Priory is the stairway turret immediately behind Abbey House. Inside, the property has a wealth of character features such as old ceiling timbers, window seats, and an antique range in the dining room believed to be from the 1900’s. Over more recent years the property has been sympathetically restored and refurbished to create a comfortable and spacious family home set within splendid, south-facing gardens affording a good degree of privacy, and with an array of established shrubs, trees, lawn, rockery and a water feature giving colour, shape and interest all year round. Of particular note is the Monkey Puzzle tree that stands proudly in the centre of the garden with back drop views of beautiful open countryside.
