Main points to remember
Large property with Mediterranean styling
Awesome terrace area – great for a party!
Really pretty location
This well-equipped and spacious family home was built in the 1840s as the chief engineers residence during the construction of the Midland Railway and has now been sensitively modernized and extended to offer terrific accommodation in this lively and attraction-rich region of Derbyshire
The house retains some original character and much Mediterranean styling, with a cast-iron wood-stove, pine doors, and many areas of Spanish-tiled floors with scatter-rugs. Sensitive remodeling has created a comfortable lounge with a pretty morning room, and the picture windows look across the old Station to river meadows and valley woodland below, with plenty of space for groups to spread out
The BBQ, covered terrace, conservatory and inset patio chess board are great fun!
On the ground floor there’s a large open-plan lounge with wood-stove & dining area, and with separate sitting/games area (with table football). A large beamed conservatory through double-doors from lounge, with separate washroom off. Quality fitted galley kitchen, with access to living room & conservatory, and serving-hatch to terrace
