THE VICARAGE COTTAGE, BAKEWELL
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.
