Property description

This charming three-storey, two-bedroom cottage is located in a highly desirable area of Derby, offering a unique historical significance as one of the first cluster houses in the world. The property occupies an elevated position, providing picturesque views.

The cottage is available with gas central heating for comfort throughout the year.

Upon entering the ground floor, you'll find a welcoming hallway leading to a guest cloakroom/wc with 'Victorian' style fittings. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a convenient pantry/store. The kitchen boasts a range of fitted pine units, an induction hob, and an electric Bosch oven. Additionally, there is plumbing and space for a dishwasher and a washer dryer. The living room, characterised by a beamed ceiling, features a gas-fired 'stove' set in an exposed brick hearth.

Moving to the first floor, the landing leads to a 'Victorian' style bathroom with a full suite and a mixer shower over the bath. A double bedroom on this floor comes complete with fitted wardrobes. A flight of stairs from this bedroom leads to a further double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Both bedrooms boast original cast iron grates in exposed hearths, adding to the property's character.

Parking is available on the street, and while there is no garden, the central location within the heart of Darley Abbey places the cottage in proximity to Darley Park and the river Derwent. Residents can enjoy the historical ambiance of the 15th Century Abbey Inn, making this property an appealing and well-situated home.
