About this property

  • Rocksite was constructed in about 1968, on a site of about 4 acres. Rocksite is built of intersecting logs and it has a grass covered roof over a PVC membrane. The house is one of a number of properties of similar design discreetly positioned within the moor and woodland of Glen Derby.

    Rocksite has been sympathetically extended by the current owners so that the accommodation retains all its original character but has the benefit of some useful utility spaces which include an entrance hall, with boot room and laundry room. The open plan living room, dining room and kitchen is a wonderfully comfortable and social space. The log walls give a lovely cosy atmosphere but a wall of south facing sliding doors bring lots of light into the living room. A large wood burning stove in the centre of the living room warms all the kitchen, dining and living spaces efficiently and there are also electric heaters. The contemporary kitchen is open to the dining area and has pretty southwesterly views over the garden. A sun room at the far end of the living room is a welcome additional space to use in the summer months.

    The principal bedroom at Rocksite has an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and a shower room.


    Rocksite is situated in about 4.38 acres of woodland and heathery hill and a short driveway leads to a parking area beside the house. The garden and ground at Rocksite are a particular feature of the property. Mown pathways lead to lovely walks and spots to sit out and enjoy the peace and the views.
