Property SummaryA delightful and carefully thought out Grade II listed property set over three storeys with some lovely touches making the most of the space available. With extensive views over the village and the Amber Valley, this is a remarkable home which offers all the benefits of semi-rural living with the amenities of both Belper and Derby just a few minutes away by car.
Much care has been taken to ensure the property has the feel of an authentic Peak District country cottage, evident immediately after walking through the front door into the open-plan living room and kitchen. Solid wood beams in the ceiling are matched by the floor and shelving in the recessed alcoves either side of the chimney breast, which incorporates a cast-iron wood burner set in a brick-built fireplace with heavy natural-stone lintel. In the kitchen space, custom-made wall and base units are fitted above solid-wood work tops with white splash back tiles fitted above the cooking and preparation areas. Freestanding oven with hotplate and hob above while a gold-coloured mixer tap has been fitted above a Belfast-style, ceramic sink beneath a window overlooking the courtyard garden. There is also space for an upright fridge-freezer adjacent to a small floating breakfast bar with a handy wine rack above and below, while additional light is provided by overhead, adjustable spotlights.
Bathroom with an arch-shaped ceiling and slate-tiled floor is accessed via a solid wood door from the living room and yet again - the space reflects the careful thought put into the design of the property. A natural-stone feature wall is fitted with a chrome ladder-style heated towel rail and modern wall-mounted lights while the remainder of the room is tiled and includes a sink with storage cupboard beneath and mirror above. A second mirror is fitted to a small cabinet above the low-level W/C with dual flush while the white panel bath includes chrome grab handles, a glass splash screen and a power shower above.
Carpeted stairs lead to the first floor from the kitchen to the first-floor where a latched solid-wood door opens onto the double bedroom used as a nursery by the current owners. It includes custom-built shelving, ceiling-mounted adjustable spotlights and a wall-mounted radiator, with extensive views over the Amber Valley.
More stairs from the first floor lead to the carpeted master bedroom on the second floor, which includes an authentic cast-iron feature fireplace, a wall-mounted radiator for additional warmth in winter, solid-wood beams, ceiling and wall-mounted lights controlled by a dimmer switch and, of course, the same delightful views over the Amber Valley.
The property is in the middle of West Terrace, a row of well-cared-for cottages on the slopes above the River Derwent. Divided from the communal walk to Shaw Lane by a low stone wall, the house is fronted by a paved courtyard garden with a small outhouse for storage and with trellises for climbing plants along the south-westerly walls. There is also access to a larger garden accessed via stone steps and laid mostly to grass. Bordered by stone walls and hedges, the space includes a timber pagoda and larger than-average timber shed with shade in the summer offered by a number of mature trees.
Milford is a pretty village and World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Derwent in the Amber Valley in Derbyshire, just a little south of Belper and around eight miles north of Derby itself. Amenities in the village include the village primary school rated good by Ofsted at its last inspection in June 2016. All the facilities of Belper including a cinema, a Morrisons superstore, shops, pubs, restaurants and bars are just a couple of miles away with buses from Milford also running regularly to Ripley and Bakewell from stops on nearby Hopping Hill. Services from Belper railway station also offer regular connections to Derby, Nottingham and Matlock with a daily direct connection to London St Pancras, which is approximately a two-hour journey south.
