Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Bakehouse, being of 17th century origin, is quite rightly noted to be of architectural and historic importance through its Grade II listing. Many historic features are evident to include period timbers, stonework and fireplaces. Equally evident is the quality of renovation and refurbishment undertaken over the years which sympathetically blend the period character with high calibre fittings and finish. Internally the well proportioned accommodation provides three reception rooms including a conservatory, three good bedrooms set around a broad landing plus useful cellarage. The cottage is complemented by delightful patio gardens with mature planted borders and the rare advantage of a garage.

Standing to a no through road, set back and tucked away from Main Street and adjoining the imposing Winster Hall, The Old Bakehouse is handy for the nearby general store, two public houses, a dispensing surgery and is almost a level walk to both the church and the primary school. It offers direct access to countryside from the end of Woodhouse Lane. From the village there are walks in every direction and the more adventurous can find themselves readily across the local moors, wandering along the valley to Clough Wood or over to Birchover and Stanton Moor where popular local attractions include the Nine Ladies Circle and nearby Robin Hoods Stride at Cratcliffe rocks.

The local road networks lead further afield to the wider delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside and to the neighbouring market towns of Matlock, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Chesterfield. The cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all lie within daily commuting distance.
