Full description

Aficcionados of Period property will undoubtedly relish the glorious symmetry and aesthetics of
this classic 19th Century property that carries a Grade II Listing and which, as with many properties of this ilk, was built by a local industrialist for he and his family - in this case, the local silk manufacturer, Joshua Brough. It originates from c. 1750 but the classic front elevation was an extension undertaken in 1837, but overall, it could be argued that it is a genuine architectural gem and it is one set within lovely grounds that feature an abundance of specimen trees and shrubs, whilst the neighbouring properties are similarly stylish and distinguished Period dwellings. All this within walking distance of open countryside, the town centre, and the
appropriately named Brough Park!

It is refreshing that some original features remain within the accommodation, such as internal doors, cornices, architraves, and sash windows and window shutters, whilst many will appreciate the unrealised potential given the desire these days for restoring a property to its former glory, and at the same time, incorporating personal tastes and requirements. There is a long Entrance Hall to one side of which is a 20'10" Lounge/Sitting Room, and to the other, a good sized Living/Dining Room, whilst a good square Kitchen provides potential for a practical working area and access to a delightful Sun Room together with a Utlity Room, off which is a useful downstairs Cloakroom. An attractive Landing on the first floor leads to five principal Bedrooms, one of which some may choose to utilise as an en-suite, whilst a Hobbies Room/occasional Bedroom No 5 can be accessed through Bedroom 4. Completing the accommodation is a Bathroom, with a separate W.C.

Outside, in addition to the previously mentioned gardens, there is cobbled driveway which leads to a single integral Garage, together with a range of brick built Outhouses. Leek remains a friendly and traditional market town that comprises a wide range of fascinating property together with a pleasant shopping centre complemented by its popular traditional markets. There are good social and recreational facilities, together with schooling for all ages, whilst the surrounding countryside is glorious in the extreme, with the town being on the fringe of the Peak District National Park. Other centres are easily accessible by way of the excellent road
network.
