Rose Hill House and Butterhill House on South Street were originally one, and the buildings were listed as having Grade II historic significance in 1951.
The structure dates to the 18th Century or before, but in 1830 the decision was made to split the properties into two – and so Rose Hill House and Butterhill House were born.
During the Victorian era some additions were made to the land, most notably the large Italianate and Tudor style buildings around the paddock and Rose Hill arch, which once acted as an elegant entranceway to the property.
Today Rose Hill and Butterhill remain popular and attractive developments. When you visit, be sure to take in the view of the paddock through the historic brick arch to get a glimpse of times gone by.
