Situated within a favoured edge of town location, which commands superb views to the hillsides across the Derwent Valley, a modern detached three bedroom home.
Offering scope for some updating, this traditional 1960’s built house presents a rare opportunity to those seeking a comfortable family home in one of the town’s more sought after locations. The brick and tile property stands to a larger than average garden plot, which takes full advantage of the south westerly aspect and valley views, whilst also being pleasantly situated, tucked away from the roadside, at the end of a private driveway, which provides the benefit of off street parking and a detached single garage. A later extension to the property provides additional ground floor utility and shower room, which complements the original breakfast kitchen and open plan sitting through dining room. At the first floor, there are three good bedrooms and bathroom all set around a spacious landing. There is ample room for further extension if required and subject to any necessary planning consents.
Matlock’s town centre facilities lie less than one mile away and there is the benefit of well respected primary schooling closer at hand, not to mention access to the delights of the neighbouring Derbyshire Dales countryside. Good road communications lead to the surrounding townships of Bakewell, Chesterfield and Alfreton with the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all within daily commuting distance.
