This beautiful detached cottage which formed part of the Lord Howard estate until the 1920 s is believed to date back to 1677. This property has since been extended in the early 1800 s and most recently by the current owners in 2009. On Derbyshire Level, one of the most sought after locations, the property sits on the border of the Peak National Park with beautiful surrounding countryside, but within a short distance of Glossop town centre s shops and train station.
The property is approached by a private drive leading to an area of parking for several cars, an interlinked double and single garage. The garages have power and lighting with a multi-fuel burning stove. The is also a large greenhouse. Landscaped gardens surround the house comprising lawned areas, mature flower beds and shrubs, a small pond and many mature trees. There is a useful attached outbuilding with cold water supply. All the gardens are connected by gravel paths and are enclosed by fenced boundary.
The house has fantastic size rooms, is gas centrally heated, double glazed throughout and is all mains connected. The main entrance to the property is in the newer part of the house with downstairs WC and office. The office provides a versatile room that whilst currently an office, could equally be used as an additional reception room, playroom or bedroom. The hall then extends further into the property where the stairs are situated and also access to the lounge which has a lovely stone fireplace and dining room with aspects to the front and rear. Off this is the kitchen leading to a utility room. To the first floor are four fantastic double sized bedrooms. Two of them have en suite shower rooms and there is a good sized family bathroom.
We were attracted to White Cottage by it s character, charm and space. The secluded gardens with proximity to the Peak National park give it a wonderful rural feel whilst still being within walking distance of Glossop town centre. It is a wonderful family home and ideal setting for a growing family.
