This impressive six/seven bedroom detached property, which enjoys a prime position in the sought after spa town of Buxton, is surrounded by a typical English country garden, where garden parties on the manicured lawn are a must have as well an opportunity to show off the ornamental fish pond and point out the ornate bridge spanning the property's babbling brook.
Although a 10 minute stroll through the delightful Pavilion Gardens will lead you to the market town's enviable selection of quaint shops, cafes and the famed Opera House, you may be reluctant to leave this beautifully preserved and well-presented home with its plethora of charming original features including; leaded windows housing intricately patterned stained glass, generous sash windows, grand marble fireplaces and the ornamental architraves of a glamorous bygone era.
This deceptively spacious and incredibly versatile property would be perfectly suited to the larger family seeking a spacious home bursting with character as well as would-be innkeepers wishing to revert the property to its glory days as a sought-after boutique guest house.
The front door's stained glass windows conceal a quaint vestibule which leads into the elegant reception hall complete with traditional style black and white floor tiles which you must take a moment to appreciate before exploring the beautiful ground floor living space made up of; four generous reception rooms (one boasting an en-suite which could be utilised as the seventh bedroom), a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room complete with hand crafted units topped by gleaming granite worktops, a study, cloakroom and utility room (ready plumbed for the installation of an additional downstairs shower room).
Wine connoisseurs and beer enthusiasts will love the sizable triple chambered cellar with a plethora of space for hosting tasting sessions of the latest tipple.
As you glide upstairs to the first floor you can't help but admire the lengthy gallery landing, off which are four generous bedrooms all with gorgeous en-suite bathrooms in addition to a sizeable store.
Last but not least is the superb second floor; an original part of the property and home to two character bedrooms one of which offers en-suite bathroom facilities.
To the rear of the property's 0.35 acre plot is a generous tarmacked area providing plenty of secure parking spaces and housing a detached double garage. This area offers the potential to extend the 4,400 sq foot property. (Subject to planning permission)
