THE VICARAGE COT­TAGE, BAKEWELL

Derbyshire Life - - Property -

Lo­cated close to the cen­tre of the town but tucked away and with the ben­e­fit of garag­ing and of­froad park­ing, this Grade II listed house has an in­ter­est­ing his­tory. It was orig­i­nally con­structed in 1870 by the noted Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tect Al­fred Water­house as the gar­dener’s cot­tage, coach house and sta­bles to the ad­ja­cent vicarage. Al­tered greatly into liv­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion through­out the 20th cen­tury, it has been lov­ingly re­stored over the last few years. Orig­i­nal pe­riod fea­tures have been com­bined with mod­ern bath­rooms and a re­cently fit­ted kitchen.

A high-ceilinged en­trance hall gives ac­cess to the kitchen, din­ing room and draw­ing room. The split-level draw­ing room has doors out to the gar­den and a lower tiled area with a cloak­room off and pas­sen­ger lift to the first floor. The kitchen fea­tures a range of units with built-in ap­pli­ances, while the ad­ja­cent din­ing room, with win­dows over­look­ing the front court­yard, has ad­di­tional stor­age un­der the stairs to the first floor. A sec­ond sit­ting room leads from the din­ing room.

The first floor com­prises two dou­ble bed­rooms and a large shower room, which lead from the main land­ing, and an in­ner land­ing/study area with views over Bakewell, fol­lowed by the master bed­room. This is a light, dual-as­pect room with en-suite bath­room and fit­ted cup­boards con­ceal­ing ac­cess to a large loft.

Out­side are two garages, one with plan­ning con­sent, and gar­dens at the front, rear and to one side with lawn, shrubs and ma­ture trees.
