Carsington is a pretty limestone village which lies between the market towns of Ashbourne and Wirksworth and is surrounded by rolling Derbyshire countryside. Carsington Reservoir and Sailing Club are close by which is a haven for walkers, cyclists and sailing enthusiasts. The High Peak Trail is easily reached. The village is home to a well regarded Primary School with equally good secondary schools in Ashbourne and Wirksworth. There is a popular country pub 'The Miners Arms' and there is a strong community spirit. This home is located almost opposite the village green with seating and children's play equipment.

To the front of the property there has been some clever landscaping and garden work here resulting in two separate and quite private outside seating and dining areas. This is an ideal spot to enjoy that morning coffee or some al-fresco dining. Immediately to the rear of the property we find a timber shed, three log stores and sturdy, bespoke fitted, galvanised metal steps and balustrade that lead up past a wildflower garden to two further levels which again have been skilfully landscaped to provide two seating areas. The very top of the garden enjoys superb, far-reaching views over the village and towards Carsington Water. There is also a level which has been landscaped for growing soft fruits and vegetables.
Just to the rear of the kitchen and utility, we have this most useful outside store, accessed via an external uPVC door. The LPG gas combination boiler is located here.
