Where Is Epworth House? - A short uphill walk from the lovely town centre Epworth House stands elegantly on New Street. Matlock is ideally located for commuters who can take the line to Derby or drive the nine or so miles to Chesterfield, both stations providing access to national rail hubs. Sheffield is an easy commute of approximately half an hour, whilst Derby and Nottingham are within reasonable driving distance. Matlock is a large market town, dramatically overlooked by Riber Castle, and is increasingly drawing independent stores, farmers and Victorian markets whilst being ideally located for Chatsworth, Haddon, and Hardwick halls. A large Sainsbury's and M&S Food Hall are within a two minute drive. The beautiful Peak District with dramatic wooded valleys, pastures and the river Derwent in the valley below sets the scene for this lovely family home.
The Home: - Epworth House is a beautifully preserved, homely, but undoubtedly grand family home or, it could be a wonderfully popular B&B, its position just off the town centre definitely lending itself to this role. The home has light, space and character in heaps but the owners have managed to inject a contemporary feel without compromising the integrity of the original home. Stone built to impress, steps lead up to the entrance foyer which provides plenty of space for boots and coats. The entrance hall is spacious and stunning - think country house gatherings! Original panelled doors lead off to the various rooms, while the impressive staircase sweeps up to a galleried landing on the first floor.
The Ground Floor In Brief: - The family sitting room to the left of the hallway is a lovely room. Large, light, bright and spacious, it has wooden floors, a refurbished column radiator, a feature fireplace, complete with 'Clearview' stove. Huge sash windows overlook the front garden with the views to the south. To the right of the hallway is a fabulous drawing room, also used as a formal dining space. Again with a feature fire surround and this time an open fire with raised quarry tiled hearth, again, the room has huge sash windows to the front and a wooden floor. Beyond is a music room or study the entrance to the storage cellar, a cloakroom with lovely stained glass panelling leading to the room and an excellent wet style, fully tiled shower room.
The dining kitchen is just the best family gathering space - an eclectic but wonderful mix of faux beams, hand-painted wooden base and wall storage units, solid wooden worktops, a Belfast sink with separate veg sink, integral wine fridge, 12 setting dishwasher, a fridge and freezer, Neff microwave, plus a Tecnik range style cooker which has five gas burners, a double oven and grill and an extractor hood over. There is space for a washing machine and space either in the kitchen or in the boiler room for a tumble drier. With plenty of room for a large dining table, this really is a fantastically cosy kitchen which has very cleverly mixed the traditional and contemporary.
The First Floor: - The impressive staircase with hardwood banister has a contemporary sisal style runner which extends onto the landing on the first floor. To the left is a fabulous WC complete with original restored Victorian pan seat and cover. There is a pedestal wash basin and chrome ladder style radiator.
Opposite is a family bathroom, with wooden floor, loo, basin and roll top bath sitting on ball and claw feet. The bath has a chrome traditional style shower mixer tap. Again, there is a modern chrome ladder style radiator/towel rail.
The landing window has spectacular views towards Riber Castle. Such a lovely window, with stain glass in an unusual pattern featuring starbursts in each corner. Across the landing, under a plaster arch with corbels and up a couple of steps towards two good sized double bedrooms, both rear facing with feature fireplaces, wooden floors and sash windows. Beyond is a substantial bedroom, again rear facing with a built in original wardrobe and feature fireplace. Opposite and front facing is a similarly sized bedroom, a significant space, with lovely views and similar, original built in wardrobes.
The smallest bedroom sits between the last bedroom and the master and would definitely be ideal if converted into a great sized, Jack and Jill bathroom for the two rooms. The master room is a huge room with masses of space for all the usual furniture along with sofas if required.
The loft is insulated and partly boarded - it has a large velux which floods the space with light which passes into the landing space through a stained glass ceiling window - a clever feature of homes of this period. The loft space would easily make two substantial further rooms or potentially an annexe or master bedroom suite.
Outside Space: - The garden is compact but it is a perfect space in that it features all you need. There is a lawn, pathways, planting, private, sunny seating areas access direct from the kitchen, storage space and parking. The boiler room to the side of the kitchen provides a great secure storage space for all of that equipment ie bikes, canoes etc to go with your new life in the country!
Services: - The home is served by mains gas, electricity and water. The waste is by means of a septic tank. Council tax band to be confirmed.
