Station Road, Brough

Brough, East Yorkshire, HU15 1DX


Roman House is a fabulous detached property of real heritage which affords extensively modernised accommodation with an array of brand new fittings. Standing on the site of the old Roman fort of Petuaria the property has an interesting history and has now been brought right up to date by a major programme of renovation which has created a home of real appeal. Ready to move straight into, with carpets and flooring fitted, the accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall, sitting room and a particular feature is the stunning living room with original inglenook housing a log burner. There is a brand new fitted kitchen, separate utility room, and cloaks/WC. At first floor are a series of five bedrooms together with a storage room and an eye-catching bathroom and en-suite. The accommodation has the benefit of uPVC double glazing and there is a gas fired central heating system installed. A remote controlled roller door opens to provide secure parking for two/three vehicles. Station Road has the added benefit of residential parking only. The enclosed rear garden has been professionally landscaped, creating a relaxed attractive area for entertaining, with a mix of patios and lawned areas, also featuring an original well.

No chain is involved therefore an early completion is possible.


The property stands in the historic part of Brough, the home of a Roman settlement and is situated close to the prestigious Cave Road. The property is ideally placed for Brough's wide range of amenities including local shops such as a nearby Morrisons supermarket, general amenities, primary schooling and secondary schooling at nearby South Hunsley. The property is ideally placed for commuting, being a very short walk to the mainline railway station which provides regular services to Hull, Leeds, Manchester and London Kings Cross. Immediate access is also available to the A63 leading to to Hull city centre to the east and the national motorway network to the west.


Roman House stands on the site the former Roman fort of Petuaria. An original building was constructed on the site of stone excavated from the old Roman road approximately 300 years ago. Some of the original walls are still standing on two side of the rear courtyard.

At a later date two dwellings, Rose Cottage and Westview Cottage, were created to encompass the original building.

Later still in the 1950's, Rose Cottage was shared as a private dwelling and a branch of the Yorkshire Bank.

In the 1970's the two properties were purchased and remodeled into one house named Ferry Cottage.

For the last two and a half years the property has been subject to major renovations by the present owner to create this magnificent property aptly renamed 'Roman House'
