Stone built granary and stables conversion in the Derbyshire Peak District in a rural location yet only five minutes from Matlock, Derbyshire
A very special property finished to an extremely high standard with all brand new fittings throughout and being newly decorated.

It is also equally suitable for a permanent home within easy reach of many towns and good schools. The property also benefits from being only a 40 minute drive from Junction 29 of the M1.
The driveway has been created from stone sets, next to which is a dry stone walled garden containing various shrubs and being made easy to maintain by the forest bark mulch. To the side is a border with a wooden railed fence.
The driveway leads to a stone flagged seated patio area which is bounded on one side by two old stone drinking troughs which are supplied by spring water, providing either a natural fish pond or else an ornamental feature.
Stone flagstones which were excavated from the granary building form the path down the side of the property, and together with a lawn lead through two stone gateposts to further stone and gravel seating or barbeque areas.
Privacy is assured by the presence of further dry stone walling. From the seated patio area a very large window (being the original granary door) with a centrally glazed door leads down two steps to the living room and kitchen.
The floor tiles are rustic terracotta and on a stone hearth stands a black Yeoman gas powered wood burner effect stove above which is an attractive sawn stone mantel piece.
The spacious kitchen area would easily house a table and chairs and comprises of oak base and wall kitchen units which conceal a mains gas combi boiler, integral dishwasher, integral automatic washing machine, and a stainless steel 1 ½ bowl sink with mixer tap.

A splash back is formed by way of rustic Italian tiles of mixed natural colours, and there is a deep recessed kitchen window.
Wooden open tread stairs lead from the living room area to the upstairs gallery / lounge which shares the large feature window and is suited to a variety of uses.
The floor is of luxurious solid oak and there is wooden ballustrading and a wrought iron decorative rail as protection across the feature window. This room has gritstone featuring and a further window overlooking the Derwent Valley.
An oak door leads from the gallery to a Study / Bedroom with superb views over the valley.
