"NO CHAIN" An elegant four bedroom period town house with garage/workshop and garden, offering potential for cosmetic updating.


Set back from the main roadside around half a mile from Matlock’s central shops and facilities, this traditional stone built town house provides quite spacious family accommodation. With accommodation across three floors plus a useful cellar, the house is in need of general updating and enjoys the benefit of modern double glazing and gas fired central heating. There is the rare advantage of an attractive garden and decked terrace set above a garage workshop offering excellent storage and ancillary space. A closer inspection is recommended.

Being conveniently located for the town’s amenities, County Hall is nearby as is well respected primary schooling. Good road communications lead to the neighbouring towns of Chesterfield, Alfreton and Bakewell and to the delights of the surrounding Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside.


A traditional four panelled door with glazed fan light, opens to an entrance vestibule with Minton tiled floor around a central mat well. A second door, with coloured leaded glass lights, leads to an entrance hall with built in storage cupboards, stairs leading off to the first floor and access to the remaining ground floor accommodation.

Sitting Room – 4.55m x 3.4m (14’ 9” x 11’ 1”) maximum, the longer measurement including the front facing square bay window which allows good natural light. As a focal point to the room, a period solid fuel fireplace with tiled cheeks and painted surround. The majority of the floor includes pine boards and there remains the ceiling cornice and centre rose to the high ceilings.

Dining Room – 3.55m x 2.84m (11’ 6” x 9’ 3”) accessed from the kitchen through an open doorway with windows to two elevations. There is an oak boarded floor and display recess to the chimney breast.

Kitchen – 4.51m x 3.14m (14’ 8” x 10’ 3”) overall. Fitted with a range of painted cupboards beneath wood block work tops and a range style cooker position within the period stone fire surround. The room is finished with a ceramic tiled floor, a rear facing window provides a pleasant outlook across the gardens and beyond and a back door gives external access. A stripped pine door opens to stairs which descend to the:

Cellar accessed via a flight of stone steps and positioned beneath the kitchen. There is a high level window, electric power and light together with a tiled floor with drain to one corner.

A further flight of stairs lead from the landing winding to the second floor where the landing incorporates a low void with roof light, built in store and with doors leading off to:

Bedroom 3 – 4.68m x 3.65m (15’ 4” x 11’ 10”) a full width double bedroom with front facing window and roof light.

Bedroom 4 – 3.55m x 3.4m (11’ 6” x 11’ 1”) a fourth double bedroom with rear aspect window and aspect to the roof void.
