Overview

Benefiting from extensive refurbishment, a character stone built cottage within a convenient town location.

Description

Combining traditional character with quality and style, this attractive stone built terraced property has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. A sympathetic modern finish is evident throughout the two bedroom accommodation and includes newly fitted kitchen and bathroom, impressive stone fireplace with stove to the sitting room and the benefit of a useful outside utility room. The property enjoys a convenient and tucked away location around half a mile from Matlock’s town centre, yet set back from the main thoroughfare and ideally suited to the first time buyer, professional couple or perhaps second home investor seeking a bolt hole in the town.

Matlock boasts a wide range of local shops, cafes / restaurants and bars and lies within the Derwent Valley amidst the surrounding Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside. Good road communications lead to the neighbouring market towns of Bakewell, Chesterfield and Alfreton with the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all within daily commuting distance.
