Full description

We are delighted to offer this substantial, stone built former farmhouse which is located in Bolehill, just a short distance from the vibrant towns of Wirksworth and Cromford. This home sits in a plot of around 1/4 of an acre and enjoys unrivalled, elevated views across the town and countryside. "Byways" has been sensitively updated and extended by the current owners whilst retaining a wealth of original features. This deceptively spacious home benefits from gas central heating and double glazing. The accommodation briefly comprises; entrance porch, entrance hall, three reception rooms, conservatory, kitchen, utility room, downstairs cloakroom and study. To the first floor are three double bedrooms (with a dressing room and shower room to the master), family bathroom and the attic space has been skilfully converted into a fourth substantial bedroom suite. There is a substantial garden to the rear and side of this home, well stocked and backing on to open countryside. Driveway for two vehicles and single garage. We recommend viewing this home to appreciate the depth and quality of accommodation on offer.

Byways - A Brief History - Whilst the current owners have records confirming that this property was here back as far as the mid 1800's, they have additional documentation which details the existence of this former farmhouse (previously known as "Homestead") being in existence all the way back to the late 1700's where it was linked to the other smaller cottages along this road, perhaps being part of a large estate.

The Location - Black Rocks and the 17.5 mile long, traffic free, High Peak trail are two minutes walk from the door. Five minutes drive takes you into Wirksworth which boasts excellent butchers, delicatessen and bakery, three food stores, a newsagent, various shops, cafes and bars. The Library and Town Hall give access to many pursuits and the local cinema, with vintage bar and tapas is a must. There are two excellent primary and secondary schools close by with Anthony Gell, the secondary school, being increasingly sought after.

Ground Floor - The property is accessed via the stone steps through the substantial stone pillars which lead up to the

Entrance Porch - 1.84m x 1.10m (6'0" x 3'7") - With a terracotta tiled flooring and windows to either side. A low level cupboard houses the electric meter and modern consumer unit. The substantial, part glazed original door with decorative light over opens into the

Entrance Hall - A most welcoming space which is full of character with the original ornate archway, architrave and cornice mouldings, deep skirting boards and the staircase rising to the first floor with painted spindles and a stripped mahogany banister rail. Attractive "herringbone" parquet tiles to the floor. Panelled doors open to the ground floor rooms as well as to a useful understairs storage cupboard. The first door on the left leads into the

Lounge - 3.98m x 3.61m (13'0" x 11'10") - An attractive reception room enjoying fabulous views through a front aspect picture window out over the garden to the valley beyond. The focal point of the room is the tiled fireplace and hearth with open grate. There is a second window to the side aspect.

Dining Room - 3.98m x 3.30m (13'0" x 10'9") - Currently used as a dining room but could serve equally well as a lounge. It is another charming room enjoying the same excellent views through the front aspect window as the first reception room.

There is a side aspect window into the conservatory and a wide opening to the
