Commanding a wonderful hillside position overlooking the Derwent Valley and Chatsworth in the distance and nestled in a rural location. Amenities found in the nearby towns of Matlock and Bakewell.

Situated close to the various amenities of Matlock, including a railway station that makes the property easily accessible by both road and rail, the property is a great base for making the most of the surrounding countryside. The hillside position of the property offers outstanding views across the Derwent Valley. Set against the back drop of Jughole Woods, the property is just a short drive from the pretty market town of Bakewell with its many shops and cafes that offers a great place for a gentle stroll.

Situated at the end of a farm track, the property is entered via a hallway that’s perfect for keeping muddy boots and outdoor clothes. On this floor there is a study-lounge which opens into a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed. Two stable doors lead out onto the pretty patio garden and add a wonderful sense of country charm to the room.

Upstairs there is a bathroom with underfloor heating and travertine wall and floor tiles. The bathroom contains a bath, shower-over, hand basin and toilet. Steps lead through to the open-plan living space, with a kitchen that is fully equipped with all the essentials. The cosy lounge area provides a lovely space for relaxing and watching TV. The inverted set up of the property makes the most of the spectacular views, and the windows in the living space perfectly frame the vistas of the surrounding landscape.

There is outdoor seating to the front of the property to make the most of the stunning views or a secluded patio area to the back where you can enjoy a BBQ on a summers day.

Very nice space, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Lovely views as property is in an elevated position. Access is via a fairly steep private, unlit road with a poor surface so care is needed especially at night although, this wasn't a major problem for me but it is not the easiest access. Mattock town and facilities are a 10 to 15 min walk.

Considering the rental paid (600) would have expected conditions to be immaculate

Beautiful conversion, well equipped although some appliances are a little tired now and the chopping boards were unusable. Stunning views and a great location. Provision of a dishwasher where the old fridge is located would have been welcomed.
