Overview

A substantial and attractive stone fronted semi-detached home providing spacious three bedroom accommodation with good parking, garage and gardens.

Description

Believed to date from the 1930’s, a traditional semi-detached house of elegant proportion, which offers scope for some modernisation, although has clearly been well maintained over many years. The stone fronted house stands beneath a blue slate roof and enjoys the benefit of a quite substantial garden plot. To the ground floor, three reception rooms are set around a spacious hallway and complemented by a small but well fitted kitchen. Whilst at first floor level there are three good bedrooms, bath and shower room, plus separate WC. The gardens are similarly well maintained and pleasantly landscaped and of a size not often found in new homes today. All together an excellent family home with opportunity for cosmetic improvement to suit the buyers needs.

Good road communications lead to the neighbouring centres of employment to include Bakewell (5 miles), Matlock (3 miles) and Chesterfield (10 miles), with the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all lying within daily commuting distance. The delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside are all on the doorstep.
