Situated well back from any main thoroughfare, to the highly regarded Hackney hillside, Derwent View enjoys stunning views across the valley and to the countryside opposing flanks to Oker with Bonsall Moor and Stanton Moor to the west forming the horizon.
Conversion works to the gritstone barn were completed in 2009 to create an individual home with great character and style. The accommodation retains a country feel, with exposed stone and timberwork, natural floorings and high vaulted ceilings to the first floor all of which combine with the modern attractions of hardwood double glazing, oak internal joinery, granite surfaces to the kitchen and underfloor heating throughout. Excellent family living space includes an open plan ‘living kitchen’, separate sitting room, four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is room for further extension, if required, subject to necessary planning consents.
Outside there is the benefit of a grass paddock, informal garden and terrace, positioned to take full advantage of the views and southerly aspect.

The cities of Sheffield Derby and Nottingham are all within daily commuting distance.
