Exterior And Gardens 
The property is approached from the front via a pedestrian gateway opening from the footpath on Yeld Road with paving leading to the front door.

To the rear the approach is via a driveway leading off Burton Edge which provides off-road parking for two vehicles. A stepped path at the side of the garden leads from the driveway to the rear entrance door.

The professionally designed and landscaped rear garden is remarkably secluded and has been opened to the public on several occasions through the Oxfam Secret Gardens of Bakewell event. It includes a circular lower patio area, elliptical lawn surrounded by a low wall, an ornamental pond with waterfall that is a haven for wildlife, curved beds and borders with mature shrubs and trees and an unusual timber feature that screens the large 12' x 8' shed that is equipped with power and lighting.

To the front is a pebbled area enclosed by a dry stone boundary wall and a paved path at the side that leads to the rear of the property via a timber gate.

The property may be considered equally as either a four bedroomed residence having a Master Bedroom suite with Dressing Room/Study and private bathroom, or as a five-bedroomed residence with two bathrooms.

The property retains many original features, including solid timber doors and elegant staircase, plate shelf and two feature leaded light windows. It has been sympathetically restored and extended by the present owners to achieve a consistent style throughout with new woodwork manufactured to match the original profiles. Picture rails have been replaced where they were missing and have been added in the new rooms where appropriate. The design of the leaded lights in the panels of the new front door is also a copy of the original pattern.

There is scope to open up the two reception rooms at the front if required by removing the stud partition wall that separates them to make a single room across the front of the property.
