Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Mid 19thcentury, three storey, 4 Bedroom, 2 reception, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, mid-terraced house with dedicated covered side entrance to the rear, millstone grit stone-built, a 1970's conversion of 2 weavers town cottages with gas central heating and double-glazed throughout. Sturdily built with 18 inch thick stone walls which make the house noticeably warm in Winter and pleasantly cool in Summer. The house is in very good repair exterior and interior and with smart, freshly painted exterior. Interior decoration is also very good but will inevitably need recarpeting in due course. The house has a dedicated covered side entrance with lockable UPVC door to the front and which is wide enough for storage. The passage passes from the street into a very private garden at the rear. Unlike many of the houses in Glossop, the property is Freehold.

Garden: this 30ft long garden has a great deal of privacy and is given over largely to stone flags with steps and an ironwork gate and arched trellis to a slightly raised flagged patio. The patio is furnished with a double swing arbor, a small raised pond with 3 goldfish, there is also an insulated workshop, a greenhouse and an insulated summer house with hot-tub suitable for 4 season use. The patio also has two low stainless steel standard lamps and power is also supplied to the workshop. There are three small sheds and two garden storage units which may be made available to purchasers if desired.

Ground floor:

Sitting Room:  A small internal front porch off a quiet street enters into a comfortably sized living room with oak beamed ceiling and rough plastered painted walls, a large millstone grit fireplace with wall seat and media shelf, gas fire and central heating. Ceiling and wall lighting. From the living room, there are sliding double doors through to the dining room.

Dining Room: this is large, also oak-beamed, but smooth plastered painted walls; there is a door to an under-stair storage clipboard and a louvered double door to a storage cupboard which also houses an old but extremely reliable gas central heating boiler. There are a ceiling lamp and two wall lamps.  From the dining room, there are two purpose-built exit doors one to the fully enclosed stairs and one through to a modern kitchen extension.  The room is large, much larger than shown on the inaccurate floor plan, and actually, measures 13.1' x 13.1' (4m x 4m) which is why the first floor appears to overlap the ground floor on the plan.

Kitchen: This is of breeze block construction with tapered expanded polystyrene slabs under a well-constructed quality felted roof such that there is no puddling in wet weather.  The internal walls are largely tiled, with one wall rough plastered and painted, laminated flooring laid over ceramic floor tiles which in turn are laid over concrete. The exterior is well coated and tastefully painted. The kitchen is large enough to house all the necessary white goods, has ample work surface and a small breakfast bar for two. There is also ample storage space in wall units and base units; there never seems to be sufficient power sockets in any kitchen but this has four well spaced double sockets, which we find sufficient; there is concealed lighting under all wall units, LED ceiling lights and a cooker hood with additional lighting. Two large windows provide plenty of light and there is a glazed back door leading into the garden.

First floor:

Master Bedroom: this is a large room off the landing at the front of the house which, at present contains an Infrared Sauna which may be made available for purchase if desired.

Visitors Bedroom: Alongside the Master Bedroom at the front of the house is a smaller visitors bedroom into which a double bed will fit albeit rather tightly. This room contains a fitted double wardrobe.

Bathroom: Along the landing slightly towards the rear is a large bathroom which, although being a little dated, is furnished with a bath, an electric over-bath shower and an extractor fan all in good working order. In this bathroom is a cupboard for the hot water tank and rough storage.

Study/single bedroom: Finally, along the landing to the back of the house, is a small single bedroom/study with window mounted extractor fan. Even when fitted with the office furniture it had left enough space for a three-quarter bed-settee suitable for temporary accommodation for guests albeit an extremely tight fit and unsuitable for long-term guests.  

Second Floor.

From the study/bedroom, around the corner of the landing, is a fully enclosed stairway to the second floor.

Second-floor bedroom: This is a converted weaving room with a dormer window and with a sturdy floor constructed to take the weight of a loom. This has created an enormous space for a double bedroom, workspace, en-suite toilet, washbasin and shower heated by an electric towel rail. The room has sliding doors to a large walk-in (stooping slightly) under-eave storage. Out the window is a beautiful view of the hills above Glossop and of sunsets over them. This was our favourite room until our knees started to suffer and shortage of breath from the climb. The extent of the storage space is not shown on the floor plan and in effect adds 1.2m to the length of the floor space.

Miscellaneous

The neighbourhood is just off the A628 to Chapel-en-le-Frith and our street is far enough away to be quiet and relatively traffic free. The neighbours we have found to be very quiet and friendly. Parking, like a large part of Glossop, is on the street but this has not proved to be a problem and in our 21 years of residence there has been only one minor incident; the perpetrator has since departed.

Glossop is a small, quaint Victorian style town with a very low crime rate. There are good schools, pre-school and a park within a very easy walking distance of this property. The town centre of Glossop is also within easy walking distance as is the rail station and bus stops ideal for commuting to Manchester. For those commuting by road, the M67 is close by and the approval for the construction of a by-pass in the near future will further facilitate travel to and from Manchester. As Glossop is a relatively small town all the amenities - leisure centre, library, swimming pool, supermarkets, parks etc are readily accessible on foot. Glossop is within the bounds of the Peak District National Park so is only a very short drive from the beautiful countryside of the White and Dark Peaks.

We are now retiring to a rented bungalow so there is absolutely no queue at our end of any contract. We would favour a quick sale but this is not essential. The property will have vacant possession by the end of April but an earlier date could be negotiated.
