Dating back to the C19th and believed to form part of the industrialist, Sir Richard Arkwright, era stands this substantial four bedroomed detached dwelling set within a convenient and popular backwater location having ready access to commuter links and the delightful surrounding countryside.

With spacious proportions evident from first entry into the broad front entrance hallway which leads to a number of generous reception areas to the ground floor to include bespoke fitted kitchen with Aga range and conservatory overlooking the principal gardens. To the lower ground floor is a converted cellar being fully boarded with light and power to offer a variety of uses. Off the first floor landing are four bedrooms one of which with en-suite facilities and most being able to take advantage of surrounding woodland views.

Having considerable scope to cosmetically improve but in recent years being sympathetically modernised to include a number of characterful features such as fireplaces, Suffolk latch doors, parquet flooring and ceiling mouldings. With oil fired central heating via the Aga and intriguing scope to better utilise the numerous outbuildings currently being used for storage purposes but, subject to the necessary consents, could perhaps incorporate additional living accommodation.

Primed for country living and would best suit the family purchaser or active outdoor enthusiast who will appreciate the external shower block and with business potential, bearing in mind the prominent location, likely suited for B & B/Guesthouse purposes.

Being set within a manageable private plot which boasts ample gravelled courtyard parking together with mature, gently sloping lawned gardens and in the distance being able to take advantage of woodland views. Positioned on the edge of the popular village of Cromford which offers an abundance of local amenities such as schooling, public houses, restaurants and shops together with strong commuter links and bus routes further afield.
