NO CHAIN - An attractive character village residence, with garage, outbuildings and garden.
Standing at the heart of this sought after village, with ready access to the delights of the Derbyshire Dales and neighbouring Peak District countryside, this interesting period property offers an excellent opportunity for those seeking a character home and those appreciative of the rare advantages offered by garage and workshop space.
