Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in the early 1900's of local gritstone beneath a rosemary tiled roof, this property retains some elegant period features and has been well maintained and upgraded through recent years with three bedrooms, three reception rooms and breakfast kitchen. There are also ancillary rooms, good garden areas and the rare advantage of a detached double garage and off street parking. This excellent family home is further enhanced by a convenient yet tucked away cul-de-sac location, handy for access to nearby schooling, County Hall and the Chatsworth Hall Annexe and Matlock's wider town centre facilities lie just over a mile away.

Good road communications lead to the surrounding centres of employment and to the delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside all being close at hand.
