    • Old Masson Farm Cottage sits in an acre of gardens and grounds, occupying an elevated position, displaying exceptional views over the Derwent valley. The property has been extended to the west elevation to create a contemporary, zinc clad addition which takes full advantage of the views and tastefully combines with the period stone features of the original dwelling.

      Offering over 2000sq.ft of recently refurbished accommodation, the property is arranged over two storeys with 4 / 5 bedrooms and a detached studio building, all set within one acre of well-maintained gardens and grounds.

An external door leads to the rear of the property.

      Steps lead down from the kitchen to a dual aspect study / bedroom five with solid oak strip flooring, a door out to the east elevation and an adjoining three piece shower room.

      The kitchen also leads on to a hugely impressive atrium dining room, displaying the open galleried landing with a glass roof, under floor heating and floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors leading out to the front.

      A sliding door leads from the dining room to the delightful, triple aspect sitting room with feature window to the front, oak flooring with under floor heating, fitted shelving and storage units by local company Pre-Eminence and a corner mounted RAIS wood burner.

      Stairs ascend from the kitchen, initially to a half landing, off which is a dual aspect double bedroom and then on to a spacious full landing, leading to the main family bathroom, fitted with a wash hand vanity unity, a concealed cistern WC, a back lit vanity mirror, heated towel rail, built-in shelving and a fitted bath with shower above. Also off the main landing sits bedroom three, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, shelving and drawers and the fourth bedroom which is a single bedroom. Steps lead down from the landing to the galleried walkway overlooking the dining room and on to the vaulted principal bedroom with amazing views out via the picture window to the north aspect. The main bedroom enjoys a walk-through dressing room, fitted with Pre-Eminence wardrobes, drawers and shelving and a fully tiled en suite with under floor heating, holding a corner shower enclosure, heated towel rail, a concealed cistern WC and a large Bauhaus wash hand vanity unit.

      The property is approached via a shared private lane, leading to a private gravelled drive, providing ample off street parking, with an electric car charging point to the side of the detached studio.

      The stone built studio presents an ideal ‘at home' working / hobby space, benefitting from a kitchenette with sink and fridge, a boarded loft, WC, underfloor heating and two sets of sliding doors to the front, in addition to a side door.

      The gardens cloak all four elevations of the property, presenting numerous seating areas, the most prominent of which is off the dining room, a carefully considered patio seating area, positioned to make the most of the sunlight and the superb views on offer. There is a stretch of lawn in front of this patio area, in addition to two small paddocks, one to the head of the plot and one to the left hand side of the drive, both of which are bound by post and rail fencing.
