Tenure: Freehold

Being of natural stone elevations beneath a slated roof stands this imposing four bedroomed detached family home offering considerable scope to cosmetically update and having been extended, in recent years, to the rear with perhaps further opportunity to create additional living accommodation either with further extension or, indeed, utilising the detached stone barn which is sited to the rear of the main property, and currently having home office potential, as used in the past. With many original features retained wherever possible to include exposed stone walling, inglenook fireplace to the dining room, Suffolk latch doors all of which are blended with modern day conveniences such as a fitted oak kitchen which includes double Aga stove, bathroom and en-suite facilities together with UPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating and solar panels. Sitting within a quite superb elevated position taking in the most stunning 180 views across the Derwent Valley from its approximate 1.5 acre plot which enjoys a blend of low maintenance seating areas and mature gardens to include small woodland area and ample parking provisions and a private pea gravelled drive, integral garage and two cellar stores.

Set within this highly sought after and popular residential location lying within close proximity of a number of local amenities to include schooling (being within the Lady Manners catchment area), shops, public houses and commuter links to Matlock and Bakewell's main stream town centre facilities. Ideally suited for the family purchaser looking to take advantage of the generously apportioned accommodation or perhaps those who may wish to cohabit and utilise the detached barn perhaps as a small annexe. A viewing is highly recommended at the earliest opportunity to appreciate this quite rare opportunity and its delightful surroundings.
