Thank you for expressing an interest in Henmore Brook Cottage.
It is Victorian and would benefit from a couple of minor changes…. A log burner in the sitting room, the outhouse being converted to a utility room, office or a kitchen extension (subject to relevant building regulations & permissions). It is spacious and has an excellent heating system which heats the house in no time at all via the gas fired combination boiler within the dressing room cupboard
If you currently live in Ashbourne, you may be aware of the great location and the close proximity it is to the stunning dales countryside, it literally is straight across the road and a 5-minute walk. Once over the hill, you can take a minute to admire the beautiful Callow Hall, the views are breathtaking.
If you are new to Ashbourne, it would be useful for you to know that as well as being close to the countryside, the cottage is very well placed to all local amenities…. Schools, Health Centre, Leisure Centre M&S Food, Homebase, Aldi and they can all be accessed by the path behind the cottage that crosses over the pretty "Hemore Brook". This is a lovely walk into town, a mere 5-minutes away on foot, where there are many independent shops, bars, café’s and also some historical buildings such as Saint Oswald’s Church. Another interesting point is that if you walk to the town centre, you will pass the old railway line which is now a lovely walk through a tunnel that links you up to the outstanding Tissington Trail, great for a bike ride. There is even an aptly named “Tunnel” Café if you fancy a cuppa and a slice of cake!!
As you view the outside of the cottage, you will notice that there is a new development of houses being built. The land at the rear is going to be landscaped and a wall is being built. It is unfortunate that you are viewing the cottage/area when it is still a work in progress, however, I have seen the plans and it will all look very smart when finished. All of the cottages are owned and none are rentals at present. I have owned Henmore Brook Cottage since 2004 and am only selling due to unforeseen personal circumstances.
A little bit of Mayfield history……. On 7th December 1745 the retreating army of Bonnie Prince Charlie rode through here on its return north. The rebels shot an innkeeper and a local man named Humphrey Brown who refused to hand over his horse. Many of the villagers locked themselves in the church for safety. It is said that some of the soldiers were caught, tried for their actions and then hanged from The "Gibbets" erected by the bridge. Along with Gallowstree Lane these are grisly reminders of their fate.
I hope you enjoy viewing Henmore Brook Cottage and can see the great potential. Ashbourne is still a pretty unique market town and has fantastic schools as well as being a lovely place to live and raise a family.
