Tor House is a particularly spacious detached property just a short stroll from the centre of the village of Crich. Occupying an elevated position, its greatest asset is the panoramic view out across the Derbyshire landscape. Simply stunning! The accommodation is set over three floors and is very versatile with a self-contained two bedroomed apartment on the ground floor, perfect for a guest suite, housing a dependent relative or even a holiday let. It would make the ideal home for a growing family or for those with older or returning children. The main living area is on the second floor with a fabulous open plan lounge/diner/kitchen with floor to ceiling windows taking full advantage of the east facing outlook. Off the kitchen is an office area. On the middle floor is a shower room, double bedroom, and master suite which incorporates a large double bedroom, dressing room, en suite bathroom and access to a fantastic balcony. On the mid-level floor connecting the ground and first floors is a reception hallway with plenty of storage and a utility room which could also serve as a workshop. There is a driveway to the front of the home which provides ample off road parking and to the rear is a fully enclosed and low maintenance courtyard garden with access to the balcony. The property benefits from gas central heating and uPVC double glazing throughout. There is also the benefit of an electric vehicle charging point. Viewing Highly Recommended. VT available.
Crich, a former industrial town noted for its cultural heritage to lead and lime mining as well as framework knitting, is now a pretty village, home to the Tramway Village and the Crich Stand, a clifftop memorial. On the edge of the Derbyshire Dales, the village sits high in the rolling Derbyshire hills and is within easy access of local towns such as Matlock (approx 5 miles to the north west) as well as Derby and Nottingham. Tor House occupies an ideal location close to the centre of Crich, yet is set in a peaceful spot, well back from the main road. There are plenty of amenities in Crich itself including schools, a medical centre, post office, public houses, butchers, Indian restaurant, Fish Bar, general store and 'The Loaf' (well known for its on-site bakery and excellent coffee shop). A wide selection of walks and rural activities are available on the doorstep.
