Vendor's Insight - Having lived here all our lives, this house makes a fabulous home, say the current owners of this splendid four bedroom, three storey, stone built, detached family home set in the bustling Derbyshire village of Crich, on the edge of the Derbyshire Dales.
During a lifetime in the property, the owners have made various improvements to the house. We have updated and redecorated to create our ideal home, they say, adapting the house to suit our changing needs. The house itself has real character, with large windows flooding the living spaces with plenty of natural light and making the most of the fabulous views over the Amber Valley. The large dining room and generous bedrooms make this the perfect place to host visiting family and friends, too.
The outdoor space has much to offer too. The garden is low maintenance, yet picturesque, say the owners, being mainly laid to lawn and serving both the house itself and the two bedroom cottage annexe which sits within its grounds, known as Standcliffe Mews.
The cottages location provides easy access to local amenities and village life, being on the edge of picturesque Crich. Home to the Crich Tramway Village and Crich Stand memorial to the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment, the village has much to offer in terms of everyday convenience, too. As well as its friendly village atmosphere, Crich has a broad selection of shops and services, say the owners, so there is no need to go further afield should one wish to stay close to home. However, there are four larger towns within easy reach - Ripley, Alfreton, Belper and Matlock - as well as swift access to the M1 for wider road networks. The beautiful setting of the village is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as walking, mountain biking and climbing, too.
The airy, double aspect lounge is definitely our favourite room, and the one in which we spend most time, with windows on two sides creating a connection with the outdoors beyond.
We shall miss the magnificent views from the home on a clear day we can see for 30 or 40 miles across the Amber Valley.
Being situated at the top of the village, we are within easy reach of all the amenities and activities it has to offer, whilst enjoying those beautiful far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
The large dining room is ideal for dinner parties and Christmas lunch, while the guest bedroom tucked away in the loft provides visitors with private space whilst remaining connected to the rest of the home.
