Price on application  (Sold Subject to Contract)


Lincoln is a cathedral city and the administrative and major shopping centre within the County of Lincolnshire with an urban area population of 130,200 (2011 Census). It is also a university city with over 14,000 students and staff contributing an estimated £250 million into the local economy. The city attracts circa 3.7 million tourists annually spending £1 billion.

Rose House is situated on the western side of Tentercroft Street at its junction with the High Street and forms part of a recent city centre regeneration programme. The vibrant Brayford Pool waterfront, Lincoln University and Lincoln train station are all within short walking distance.


Rose House comprises a recently completed development of four retail units and 11 apartments over ground, first, second and third floors with car park (9 spaces), cycle and bin storage to the rear. The property was built as a condition of the planning permission for the recently completed East West Link Road and replaces similar properties with heritage status that had to be removed in order to enable the new road to be built.

Rose House is named after Rose Musical Warehouse which was founded by William Rose on the site in the 1860s. Williams youngest son, Edwin Samuel, inherited the business which stayed in the family for five generations until Jane Kinnear (nee Rose) and John Rose agreed to sell it to Lincolnshire County Council in order to allow the East West Link Road to go ahead.
