A 5 bedroom detached farmhouse with office building set in approximately 3 acres close to the popular village of Tideswell
The house is approached off the road by a private driveway with parking for a good number of vehicles. Ornate steel gates lead from the parking area and road into the pretty front garden with stone paths to the front door. The house has many original features including wood parquet flooring and stone fireplaces.
Ground floor: An entrance lobby opens into a generous hallway. The dining room overlooks the garden and has a wood burning stove. To the rear is a utility room with wall mounted LPG fired boiler and stable door to the rear patio. The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of units and work surfaces, there is a Stanley range cooker which also acts as a boiler providing some hot water and heating and a good sized dining area overlooking the front garden. Adjacent is the large drawing room with stone fireplace, Clearview stove and two full length windows to the front, a door leads to an inner hall with a staircase up and a large cloakroom/shower room off which also houses a sauna. A further door from the drawing room leads to a rear hallway giving access to the large double garage, a staircase to the studio room and a back door.
First floor: There are three staircases to the first floor. To one end is a wonderful triple aspect studio room which is hugely flexible in use and has a wood burning stove and two built in beds. There are two further double bedrooms, each with a wall mounted sink, a large master bedroom with fitted cupboards, a further dual aspect double bedroom and the family bathroom with bath, twin sinks and low level W.C.
Office/workshop block: This is situated to the rear of the house and is arranged with four offices to the front of the building, two on each floor and access from the first floor into a large studio room to the ground floor with a further office and kitchenette area to the first floor. This building is ideal for someone wishing to work from home, alternatively it would not be difficult to transform it into an income producing holiday cottage (subject to planning consent). It benefits from a three phase electricity supply.
Gardens and land: To the front of the house is a very pretty 'cottage garden' laid mainly to lawn with mature and well stocked border surrounds. To the side is a further area of lawn and a terrace in form of a GARDEN STUDIO (with three phase electric) which is currently in use as a pottery studio but could offer a host of other uses, there are two rooms, the main studio and a garden store room. To the rear of the house is a paved area which is a real suntrap and has to one side a large pond and water feature. Steps lead up to a further lawned area surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. A gate at the top of the garden opens into a croft which has recently been incorporated into the field to the side of the property, ideal for those with an equestrian interest or perhaps wishing to keep a few sheep, at the bottom end of the field on the road side are the magnificent, mature Lime trees which give the house its name.
Entrance lobby and hall; drawing room; dining room; kitchen/breakfast room; utility room; four double bedrooms; studio/bedroom five; bathroom; shower room with sauna.
Office/workshop building with great potential; stone-built garden studio; double garage; off road parking; attractive gardens, croft and pasture land, in all approximately three acres.
Wheston is a small hamlet a mile and half from the bustling village of Tideswell which offers excellent local amenities including shops, pubs, restaurants and the renowned St John the Baptist Church known locally as The Cathedral of the Peak. The market town of Bakewell and the spa town of Buxton are both within an easy drive with their more extensive shopping, transport and recreational facilities. Manchester and Sheffield are also easily accessible. The hamlet sits within The Peak District National Park and therefore there are endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits, from a cultural perspective, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Buxton to name but three are nearby.
