Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Stanton Mill Cottage is a most charming period stone built property, substantially renovated in the 1980's and provides comfortable three bedroom accommodation. An adjoining double height barn is believed to provide further opportunity to extend the accommodation, subject to the required planning approvals. The cottage is enhanced further by quite extensive gardens and grounds including informal lawns, patios and woodland.

Formerly in the ownership of Stanton Estates, alongside neighbouring Stanton Mill, now also a private dwelling, the cottage is set well back from the main road via a private driveway, the access shared with neighbouring property.

The rural location provides privacy, together with access to a network of good local roads leading to the surrounding market towns of Bakewell, Matlock and Chesterfield and beyond to the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham. Ready access is gained to the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside, whilst also lying within the catchment for the highly regarded Lady Manners School, all in all a rare opportunity for families and those who appreciate access to an outdoor lifestyle.

OUTSIDE

Stanton Mill Cottage is blessed with a delightful rural setting and is complemented by sizeable gardens and grounds. A lane access from the rear passes formal banked lawn and continues through to a parking area by the house and further continues through the gardens with the possibility of exiting via a gated right of way on the opposite boundary.

The gardens are laid quite informally, principally to lawn and on differing levels which provide interest for garden design. Well stocked herbaceous borders planted with shrubs and spring bulbs add further colour and interest and there is ample scope for creating vegetable plots, orchard or other uses.

Adjacent to the front of the cottage is a broad paved patio, gravel display area plus decked terrace, all of which is well placed for outdoor entertaining and enjoying the garden vista. The whole garden is surrounded by an area of woodland and some amenity land, being a haven for wildlife drawn in from surrounding quarry and estate land. A right of way exists across the driveway from Main Road, being shared with two other neighbouring properties.
