Standing on the edge of Cromford’s busy and historic Market Place, dating back to the Arkwright era, this traditional mixed use property offers a sound investment opportunity. Until recently, the ground floor retail premises has provided a respected butchery for many years, although are now with vacant possession. The premises enjoy a prominent position at the centre of the village. To the first and second floors, the property has been converted to provide two duplex apartments, ideal for short term or holiday letting and each providing a quality modern finish, whilst retaining period charm and character. Off a yard to the rear, is a good sized stone barn (with consent to convert to a holiday cottage yet equally offering useful storage), beyond that the rare advantage of an allotment garden with a smaller stone outbuilding.

The property is Grade II listed, noting the building’s architectural and historic importance as with many of the village’s central buildings, which all form part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
