An extended semi-detached home within a highly regarded edge of town location providing four bedroom accommodation, well finished and presented throughout.
Through recent years, this traditional 1960’s semi-detached home has been extended, adapted and upgraded to provide well proportioned four bedroom family accommodation all of which is finished to a pleasing modern standard. The improvements include a well fitted open plan kitchen, dining and breakfast area with additional TV / play room.

The house is complemented by ample car parking and landscaped gardens all of which can only be truly appreciated by closer inspection.
Set back from the main thoroughfare yet offering convenient road access to Matlock’s central and surrounding facilities, Gritstone Road remains a favoured location. The neighbouring countryside is readily accessible whilst Highfields Upper School is also nearby. Good road communications lead to the surrounding market towns of Chesterfield, Bakewell and Alfreton and the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all lie within daily commuting distance.
