Full details

An attractive stone cottage in this splendid village location and offering considerable potential.

*No Chain*


Milldale is an idyllic hamlet standing aside the River Dove, on the southern fringe of the Peak District. Locations such as this are few and far between with the village of Alstonefield being just half a mile to the north and the market town of Ashbourne being just over 5 miles to the South.


From Ashbourne take the A515 towards Buxton. Having passed the town to Thorpe and Ilam, take the next turn signposted towards Mill Dale. Follow this road down hill, keeping left at both junctions and on reaching the Hamlet, turn right and Rose Cottage is then on your right hand side.


An attractive stone built cottage standing on a generous plot extending to approximately 0.13 of an acre with the added benefit of an additional stone built shed situated across the road on this small plot of land.

The property offers considerable potential with pre-application enquiries indicating the planners would be receptive to the property being extended.

As its stands the property currently comprises; entrance porch, living room, kitchen and at first floor level, bedroom and bathroom together with a separate utility room/toilet accessed externally and within the grounds there is a large former Glasshouse (in need of repair). The building across the road from the property offers further potential standing within its own stone walled plot.

Overall, this is quite an exceptional opportunity.
