An exceptional opportunity to purchase a delightful semi-detached cottage ready for modernisation, situated in a rural location with far reaching countryside views, together with a garage and grassland all totalling 1.3 acres.

The property is situated just outside the village of Bolehill, which lies in the Derbyshire Dales being just outside the Peak District National Park. Bolehill enjoys an elevated position and as a result the property benefits from far reaching countryside views. The nearby market towns of Matlock and Wirksworth have an extensive range of facilities including high street shops, doctor’s surgery, public houses, schools, supermarkets and fuel stations. There are many nearby local walks, bridleways, trails and beauty spots in the surrounding area with the Peak Park close by, excellent for those who enjoy the outdoors and with equestrian interests. Bolehill is well located for accessing not just the offerings of the Peak District National Park, but also larger conurbations, being approximately 4 miles south of Matlock Town centre, 1.5 miles east of Wirksworth Town centre and 6.5 miles north of Belper Town centre. The city of Derby is also in easy reach being 15 miles away.

We understand from the vendors that the cottage originally dates back to the 19th Century. The property has been owned by the family for over 20 years. The property has not been on the market for some considerable time and similar opportunities are few and far between.

The cottage offers a rare opportunity to acquire a superbly positioned property with a traditional semi-detached cottage with the land surrounding. The cottage requires complete modernisation but offers great potential to upgrade and extend, subject to the necessary consents. There is a small range of outbuildings and grassland all set within approx. 1.30 acres. The property is situated in a spectacular location with rural views over the valley. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential the smallholding has to offer.
