BENNET SAMWAYS are delighted to offer for sale this beautifully presented one bedroom characterful end cottage located on a popular road in Ashbourne with a surprisingly good sized enclosed garden to the side.
It could be a super holiday cottage, second home or even first time buy. A great location within Ashbourne, and walking distance into the town centre.
Interior - Entrance is via main entrance door leading into an open plan living room with bags of character, including painted beam ceiling. Stairs off to the first floor accommodation with a useful under stairs storage cupboard and side door leading into the garden. Also, wooden effect flooring and opening leading to a kitchen area. The kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units with associated worktops, stainless steel sink and drainer unit, electric induction hob, electric oven, plumbing for washing machine and space for fridge freezer.
On the first floor landing, access to the master bedroom and fitted bathroom. The master bedroom has a fantastic feature with the door leading onto an enclosed brick balcony which is an ideal place to enjoy a morning coffee with a partial view over Ashbourne. The fitted bathroom has a white suite, including bath with shower over.
Exterior - A charming gated access through an original brick wall leads into the main garden to the side of the property. The garden is surprisingly spacious and low maintenance. It creates a lovely place to entertain and also enjoys views over Ashbourne. Ample space for an outdoor garden room/office. The neighbouring two properties have an occasional right of way across the garden. This is hardly used and mainly for the neighbours if they are having any work done to their properties.
Locality - Ashbourne is a historic market town known as “The Gateway to the Peak District” due to its convenient location to the magnificent Peak District National Park. It is within easy access of the A50 (9 miles) which connects to the M1 & M6 motorway links. Famous for its annual Royal Shrovetide Football (dates back to 1667) which is played on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. There is a great array of amenities and facilities within a thriving town centre, which offers a plethora of individual, mainly independent shops and cafes. Ashbourne has a popular golf course on the outskirts of the town, and has the highly sought after secondary school of Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGs) which serves Ashbourne and the surrounding Derbyshire Dales villages. There is a bus station which helps connect Ashbourne to Derby and Uttoxeter with a number of regular services, and nearby train stations at Uttoxeter and Derby & Matlock.
Owner's perspective - "We have loved renovating this gorgeous house. It’s close to the town centre with easy access via the little alleyways that go down the hill, or stroll down the road and in 5 minutes we're at the market place. It's ideally placed for access to the Dales, and the Tissington Trail is less than a mile away. The house itself has been a joy! It has the original beams and great living space. Storage is good, with a built-in wardrobe and a handy understairs cupboard. We have carefully selected the curtains and blinds and we think that they enhance the living space. There's a lovely sunny garden, which we have enjoyed sitting in and looking out over Ashbourne. The balcony is an ideal spot for a morning cuppa. The house is easy and cheap to heat, and gets cosy very quickly! This may sound a bit weird, but the shower is amazing. Really good pressure makes it feel fantastic! We have really enjoyed owning this beautiful little cottage."
