Millway is a three bedroomed detached home with just under half a acre of land. The home is built of Derbyshire stone and believed to date back to the 16thcentury. The depth of the window ledges illustrates the solidness of the original construction and the beautiful, exposed beams throughout the home represent the charm and character of the era. Incorporating many traditional features such as an ancient lead pane window thought to date back to the 1500’s and an antique stove in a stone hearth, the home perfectly balances the old and the new, providing a family home ideally suited to modern living!
The large, bright kitchen has been fitted with new cabinetry, beautiful faux wooden tops and feature down-lighting, offering a modern and functional room with enough space for a breakfast table. The spacious room comfortably incorporates an original Aga which warms the room during the winter months. A large double sink sits in front of a picture window looking out on the terraced garden which allows the morning sun to stream into the room.
A large utility room adjacent to the kitchen, provides ample space for appliances and storage and has a back door to the terrace. Also leading from the kitchen is a spacious dining room with a fireplace set in a stone feature wall and framed by characteristic wooden beams. A sunroom off the dining room is an ideal breakfast or reading room with double glass doors opening out onto the terrace. A separate study offers a work from home option, but both these rooms could be repurposed to suit any requirement.
The living room features an exposed stone wall and brick fireplace incorporating a practical log burner and flagstone flooring. The room is dual aspect with windows allowing the sun in throughout the day and double cottage paned French doors open onto the terrace.
The generous hallway is an ideal second sitting room featuring a striking cast iron stove. It provides access to the guest w/c, under-stair storage cupboard and broad staircase leading to the first floor.
Upstairs are three generous bedrooms and an exceptionally large family bathroom. The main bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom and a charming dressing room with walk in wardrobe. All bedrooms have feature beams and large windows offering views of the beautiful gardens and surrounding hills. The main bedroom also has a granite framed fireplace.
Outside, the terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and incorporates a millstone table as a feature. There is a large log store and a double garage. With the very popular Beehive Inn a short walk away, this home is ideally located in the village and ticks all the boxes!
