Built in the 1960s of local gritstone and for owner occupation, the original planning consent granted subjects the property to an agricultural occupancy restriction. The spacious two storey home provides versatile living space with potential for single storey living if required. Internally there is three/four bedroomed accommodation which has been well maintained over the years but offers opportunity for general updating. With large hillside garden, the plot is set well back from any main thoroughfare and commands truly superb views across the tree lined Derwent Valley landscape. The plot extends to almost one acre and includes two drive accesses, mature landscaped gardens, ample car parking, garage and other storage.
The village of Cromford and neighbouring Wirksworth provide an excellent range of local shops and amenities whilst the local road network provides links to the neighbouring centres of employment to include Matlock, Alfreton, Derby and Nottingham. The delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside are all close at hand with the more local attractions including the High Peak Trail, Black Rocks and Carsington Water.
