Full description

Built in 1766 and formerly used as the Coach House with hay storage for Cliff House the Coach House is a now charming and quirky country semi-detached cottage offering 2 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms presented on two levels, kitchen and bathroom. Outside there is a detached single garage (L shaped) with a workshop area to the rear with a mezzanine first floor and window. The garage could be looked upon for conversion into a main dwelling if larger accommodation was required (subject to appropriate planning being obtained). Our cottage is accessed via electric gates at the top of St Johns Road and enjoys a mature rear garden. Nested within the hillside with beautiful views including Riber Castle our property is one of three homes, close to local amenities (Matlock Bath and Matlock) it is ideally placed providing both a countryside escape with local town amenities.

Did you know?... Matlock Bath is set in a beautiful gorge lying south of Matlock with the river Derwent flowing through, only one side of Matlock Bath could be developed so footbridges where used to cross the river. In 1698 warm springs were discovered and a bath house built, Matlock Bath became a spa resort hence its name.

Cottage features include: Sealed unit glazed windows, gas fired central heating, oak staircase and Sitting Room floor, cottage style latched internal doors, Feature fireplace, beams, superb countryside views, secluded location with no through traffic and carefully refurbished throughout whilst retaining many original features.

As with most cottages the layout is cosy yet flexible certainly individual in design, this lovely conversion would appeal to a variety of potential purchasers and definitely a purchaser looking for some seclusion with views without compromising local amenity accessibility.
