Seller Insight - Ivy Cottage is a late Victorian house that enjoys a superb location, overlooking and surrounded by the beautiful, rolling Stafford and Derbyshire countryside. It allows you to appreciate an idyllic, rural life style, only a short walk from friendly Hanbury village.
The owner explains that the glorious, scenic views stretch out from the house to the horizon towards Dove Valley, Ashbourne and the Weaver Hills. It is magical to watch the changing weather daily and the transformation of the countryside throughout the seasons. When you sit at the dining table with the panorama spread before you, there can be no better and more tranquil place to be. Ivy Cottage has a tremendous wow factor.
The French doors between the kitchen and sitting room enable you to create a sociable living area, where the cook can remain in conversation range with family or friends. Al fresco meals in the stunning garden ensure that you feel at one with the natural world around you. The only disturbance will come from the cows and sheep grazing in the opposite fields.
Hanbury has an active social life, with a wide variety of clubs, centred in the village hall, church, and The Cock Inn. The cricket team plays on a picturesque ground and there are footpath walks around the village which generally begins and ends at the pub.
This peaceful location has easy access to the comprehensive facilities, in the neighbouring towns of Tutbury, Burton-on-Trent and Uttoxeter, whilst Alton Towers is only a twenty minute drive away. For those who love walking, Hanbury, on the edge of the Peak District, is a walkers paradise.
The present owner explains that he is sad to leave the cottage, as this was the perfect place for retirement, but is now moving to be closer to family. He believes Ivy Cottage would also be an ideal holiday home, where you can escape the stresses of modern life.
