Rose Hill is a historic home located at Front Royal, Warren County, Virginia. The original section was built in 1830, and is a two-story, a central-passage, single-pile plan frame dwelling with vernacular design elements derived from the Federal style. A two-story, brick rear ell with vernacular Greek Revival design elements was added in 1845. The front facade features a one-story, one-bay, hip roofed, Greek-Revival-style porch with paired Doric order wooden columns. Also on the property are the contributing two-story frame cottage, probably built originally as a kitchen/slave quarters, and two frame sheds clad in novelty siding (c. 1937).[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
