Property SummaryThis characterful, end-terrace house is located on a quiet lane in a charming village location with views across the Derwent Valley towards Shining Cliff Woods, nestled on the edge of the famous Peak District. With a useful outbuilding and cottage-style gardens, it would be ideal for a growing family seeking a home close to open countryside but not too far from busier centres.
Whatstandwell lies around five miles south of Matlock town centre, on the banks of the River Derwent. Nottingham is less than 20 miles away, with Derby just under 13 miles to the south with travel by car made relatively easy thanks to the proximity of the M1, A38 and A6 while Whatstandwell Railway Station is also close by. The Peak District is world-renowned haven for walkers and cyclists while local attractions include Crich Tramway Village a period village and home of the National Tramway Museum which also includes welcoming teashops, restaurants and pubs. If education is a consideration, Crich Carr Church of England Primary School is around 500m from the house and was rated good by Ofsted following its most recent inspection and has before school and after school clubs available.
The accommodation is beautifully decorated in a style that adds to the cottage ambiance. On entering the front hallway, the lounge is to the immediate left with an eye-catching feature fireplace that provides a secondary heating source if required. It has a stone hearth and a mantlepiece above, and there is built-in shelving to the alcoves on either side. Lighting is from spotlights, suspended on rods.
Further along the hall is the farmhouse-style kitchen dining room, fitted with a range of pine cupboards, drawers and shelving and with a tiled floor in contrasting black and terracotta. Cream-painted panelled walls add to the country style, there is space for a free-standing oven and hob as well as plumbing for appliances. There is plenty of room for a dining table and chairs, an open fireplace with brick-hearth makes an eye-catching feature while there is an attractive, stable-style split door leading from the kitchen to the back garden.
The house bathroom lies through the kitchen to the rear of the property, with a separate toilet beyond, and comprises a bath with shower above and a sink built into a cupboard unit with a shelf and mirror above. The walls are mainly tiled in white with patterned accents.
A door from the hallway opens into a corridor running the length of the house and gives access to a separate room offering additional space for a utility room, office or playroom.
