Settled on a wooden deck, overhanging the crystal clear, rippling waters of the Long Clough Brook, one can sit for hours enjoying the peaceful surroundings of this surprising home. If you’re fortunate you may spot a brown trout swimming by or enjoy an appearance by a Heron, Moorhen, or Mallard duck. Nestled between the tall trees are various areas of sanctuary incorporating stone benches, circular paving and outdoor furniture ideal for appreciating this stunning garden. A gorgeous summer house provides for shelter on raining days and neat walkways connect various secret patches via beautiful archways and natural planting. A wooden pergola offers an al fresco dining area and a large flag stone terrace provides for wheelchair access.
Unassuming from the road, this home delivers one surprise after another. An elegant water feature is set in a lush lawn with the backdrop of a spectacular purple rose bush lovingly trained into an archway to the front door. The home was built in 1959, but an impressive loft conversion in 2021 increased the size and value substantially by adding an additional two bedrooms and a second family bathroom. The current owners have done most of the decorating themselves to an extremely high standard, with quality modern finishes and a tasteful creative touch.
The hallway is bathed in light with a Velux skylight illuminating the new and freshly carpeted staircase. The living room features oak laminate flooring with an ornate fireplace set in an impressive feature wall and fitted with an electric fire. The sociable dining kitchen is modern and bright. Charcoal painted cabinets are contrasted by wooden counter tops and flawless subway tiling. The flooring is Amtico tiles in a parquet style which is impactful yet practical. A brand-new Hotpoint cooker with stainless steel extractor has been fitted and the sink is matt grey composite with a chrome mixer tap. There is plenty of room for a family dining table and a new electric fireplace.
Leading off from the kitchen is a wonderful sunroom with floor to ceiling glass revealing the gardens beyond and with doors leading to the terrace. A practical utility room provides for two fitted appliances. The attached garage has been converted to an en-suite bedroom with a separate toilet, a shower room, small dressing area and a fitted wardrobe. This is an ideal teenage pad or guest suite. There are two additional bedrooms on the ground floor. The first double bedroom has a fitted wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors. The second room has immaculate wooden flooring and a huge picture window providing views of the gardens. The family bathroom has a natural stone clad feature wall that offsets the stand-alone double tub bath and designer black freestanding taps.
The loft conversion has added two large bedrooms and another family bathroom to the home. The main bedroom cleverly incorporates a walk-in wardrobe cum dressing room and features high gloss polished wooden flooring. The second bedroom similarly includes this feature with additional storage space behind. A black framed shower enclosure characterizes the bathroom.
There are 7 garden sheds of varying sizes cleverly hidden around the gardens, providing for ample storage. The drive provides parking for three vehicles. The home is ideally located in Glossop on the edge of the Peak District and easily commutable to major centres.
