The Location: - Located on the very edge of the Peak Park, with the River Derwent in the valley below, Milford House provides effective and attractive family living with lots of amenities on the doorstep.

There are excellent public transport links which include a restored line carrying steam trains along the valley to the east of the property. History permeates this area with nearby stately homes including: Chatsworth House; Haddon, Hardwick, Tissington and Kedleston Halls and Bolsover Castle. The beautiful scenery surrounding the home and the numerous country houses have long been inspirational Jane Austen is thought to have based Pemberley on Chatsworth and Charlotte Bronte found inspiration in the countryside of the nearby Hope Valley. For children or the young at heart, Gullivers Kingdom and the Heights of Abraham are found in Matlock Bath, whilst there are extensive walks, watersports, climbing, pot holing, trekking, birdwatching, and cycling opportunities galore all on the doorstep.

The market towns of Ashbourne, Bakewell, Buxton and Wirksworth are well within half an hour drive, whilst there are innumerable picture postcard villages located in the surrounding Peak Park.

Distance From: - Ashbourne 18 miles, East Midlands Airport 37 miles, Sheffield 23 miles, Derby 21 miles. National rail hubs are available at Derby or Sheffield.

A Word From The Family: - This is a dream house and beautiful family home. Milford House is truly unique, with large and spacious light rooms, gorgeous gardens, loads of parking and amazing views. It have been a real Grand Design for us, requiring just a bit of finishing off!'

The Home: - Approaching from the A6 at Two Dales, the Chesterfield Road gently sweeps around with Milford House set well away from the main road on the right. Double gates and a wide driveway and substantial parking area sit in front of the property with the garaging to the left.

The Downstairs: - The main entrance is an attractive and useful space with original Terrazo floor. The outer hall leads directly into a dining hall, which is home to the sweeping staircase to the first floor and includes a fabulous woodburner and a large picture window which takes in the truly enchanting views.

To the left of the dining hall is the hugely impressive living kitchen which provides the most amazing family/entertaining space. If ever there was a heart to a home, this is it. Words fail us, but essentially, you have an off-white ceramic tiled floor with underfloor heating, a huge range (including an enormous island unit) of white and dove grey handleless Hacker units with white quartz worktops. There is an integrated Atag double oven PLUS an original (not to the property) gas powered AGA and a NEFF hob which sits alongside the basin in the island unit. At the far end of the room is a large space for sofas and a dining table, while bi-fold doors lead directly out to the terrace and garden and also provide stunning views. The WC and boot room plus separate but large utility are also accessed from the living kitchen through the oak doors which feature throughout this home. The utility provides side access - perfect for four legged friends.

Back through the dining hall, is the family sitting room which is a lovely, bright, light and spacious square room with a contemporary woodburner. Double doors with side glazed windows lead directly into a sun room, which is a great space, especially as it once more features a range of b- fold doors leading onto the terrace and ensures that the wonderful views are visible from the sitting room.

The Upstairs: - The open staircase leads to a galleried landing and starting from the right, is a spacious front-facing double bedroom (there is also a large under-eaves cupboard on the landing). A rear facing second double is light and spacious and has a contemporary shower room with Velux window. The views from here are beautiful.

The master bedroom is breathtaking. Entering through the oak door - which is a feature throughout this home - the space is extraordinary. A huge open bedroom with a double door leading to a Juliet balcony ( to maximise the views) with striking exposed roof trusses which provide genuine architectural interest. The cherry on top is provided by a large walk-in dressing room and a separate, spacious and luxurious shower room with Porcelanosa fittings.

Beyond the master is another amazing double which could easily also be an alternative master. A lovely large space, again with a contemporary shower room and exposed roof trusses which create a unique space.
