Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the character and quality of this superb period home. Steeped in history the earliest part of the property is believed to be over 400 years old with the beautiful Georgian frontage added approximately 200 years later. It formed part of the Chatsworth Estate until 1950 when it was sold to the tenants, the Sterland family, to contribute to the death duties payable by the Duke of Devonshire. The current occupants are the 4th generation of Sterlands to live at Amberside.

The comprehensively appointed breakfast kitchen has a gas Aga, stone French sink, useful separate utility room and guest WC. The inner hallway provides access to the vaulted cellar from the dining hallway, stairs lead to one of the servant's rooms which still requires some modernising.

The central staircase leads to a half landing with four piece family bathroom off and galleried landing with large sash window overlooking the gardens. There are two generously sized double bedrooms and three further double bedrooms to the second floor.

The property benefits from gas central heating, recently installed in 2014, with character sash windows and hardwood entrance doors.
