February 16, 2018

This week’s property of the week is this wonderful and sympathetic conversion of the Wirksworth Heritage Centre.

The house is situated over three floors and is located on the centre of this popular market town and on the door step of the Peak District.

On entering the home you instantly have an immediate sense of the character of Silk Mill House with its exposed beams. On this floor is a useful store room, well-appointed utility room with plumbing for washing machine and storage cupboards, along with the electric boiler.

The master bedroom is also located on this floor, a spacious double bedroom with original metal support and beam ceiling. It is well served by the first of the modern and sleek bathrooms with a walk-in shower room and toilet.

The first floor has a landing area with a door which gives access to the rear level where by there is a council owned car park. On this floor are bedrooms two and three, which share the principle bathroom, which features a freestanding slipper bath and a vanity wash hand basin. There is a walk in shower and the room is finished with limestone tiled walls.

On the next floor you get the spacious open plan lounge/diner/kitchen which is a wonderful room with a vaulted ceiling flaunting exposed beams, exposed stone work to the walls and plenty of windows flooding the room with light. This floor provides stunning views of the Market Town of Wirksworth and the hills and dales beyond.

This is open plan to the kitchen area, which has a raised breakfast bar area. The kitchen offers a full range of contemporary storage, which houses an integrated fridge freezer as well as a dishwasher, induction hob and a separate oven.

The outside space features an outside courtyard, large enough for some patio furniture and ideal for entertaining, which is adjacent to the front door. There is vehicle access up to the front of the house, and to the right a raised paved area suitable for outside potted plants. This raised area has planning permission to be dropped to create an exclusive parking area if required.

The home is located in the market town of Wirksworth with its imposing stone buildings, the town is the perfect location for those looking to be in close proximity of the Peak District and its attractions.

The nearest railway station is nearby Cromford, which offers a regular service to Nottingham, which is an hour away.  The city of Derby is also 30 minutes away by train or car.

The property is currently on the market for £400,000 through Fine & Country!
