Built in the 1920s with an attractive stone front elevation, the remaining walls being white rendered and all beneath a hipped tiled roof, this traditional detached bungalow stands with good sized gardens to both front and rear, off street parking and a detached garage. The property occupies an elevated position on Darley Hillside from where stunning panoramic views along and across the rolling hills of the Derwent Valley are enjoyed. The three bedroom accommodation is well proportioned and well suited as a family home or for the professional couple and retirees alike.

Countryside walks are available from the doorstep and the wider recreational delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District are all close at hand. Good road communications lead to the neighbouring market towns of Matlock 3 miles, Bakewell 5 miles and Chesterfield 10 miles. The cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham are all within daily commuting distance.

Overlooking the valley, a part glazed door opens directly to a:

Sitting Room – 5.41m x 3.63m (17’ 9” x 11’ 11”) a comfortably proportioned room with front facing square bay window which takes advantage of the superb views with Bonsall Moor to the south, Stanton Moor straight ahead and reaching towards the slopes above Rowsley and Chatsworth in the west. Oak panelling and plinths are set around a feature fireplace siting a copper canopied electric fire. There is access to the roof void, doors from the hallway and an open arch leading to the:

Dining Room – 3.96m x 3.36m (13’ x 11’ 1”) offering a place for formal dining or perhaps an additional snug living room. There are similar panoramic views towards the wooded slopes rising to Stanton Moor and with Stanton Woodhouse on the hillside straight ahead. A feature stone fireplace has a raised tiled hearth, living coal gas fire and book shelving to each side of the chimney breast.

Central Hallway with a pair of multi-paned doors leading from the sitting room and with a glazed door from the porchway out to the rear entrance. Built in cupboards provide useful storage and house the gas fired combination condensing boiler which serves the central heating and hot water system.

Breakfast Kitchen – 3.7m x 3.6m (12’ 2” x 11’ 10”) also accessed directly from the rear porch, the kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards, drawers, work surfaces and stainless steel sink unit. With gas cooker point, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and concealed to a wall mounted cupboard, the electric meters and consumer unit. Windows to the side and rear and third feature window all draw good natural light.

Bedroom 1 – 3.63m x 3.35m (11’ 11” x 11’) a rear facing double bedroom with views to the roadside gardens and the wooded slopes of the hillside beyond. Built in wardrobe provides useful storage.

Bathroom with double width walk-in shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low flush WC. Complementary ceramic tiling and obscure glazed window.

Bedroom 2 – 3.63m x 3.47m (11’ 11” x 11’ 5”) a good rear facing double bedroom.

Bedroom 3 – 3.63m x 2.74m (11’ 11” x 9’) well proportioned and rear facing.

The bungalow stands to an individual plot with gardens to both the front and rear. The garden’s south westerly aspect makes good use of the day’s sun and the valley views which reach deep into the Peak District to the west. It is clear that time and care has been spent over the years and the gardens offer ample opportunity for the keen gardener for years to come.

From the lane, a tarmac drive provides car standing and access to a detached single garage with up-and-over door, windows to two elevations and separate personnel door. From here, pathways lead through the rear gardens dissecting two areas of lawn, each being surrounded by herbaceous borders planted with a variety of low growing shrubs and perennials.

The larger garden area is found at the front of the house on the valley side, a truly delightful position for pottering and relaxation. There are lawns on two levels, deep herbaceous borders and maintained hedge boundaries. To the lower lawn, a wooden potting shed and aluminium framed greenhouse.
