The “charming” stone-built property, Hill View House, in Matlock currently has two bedrooms but has planning permission for a two-storey side extension to create an integral garage at ground floor level and an extra bedroom in a contemporary designed first-floor extension with terrace.

The property has off-road parking, elevated tiered gardens with far-reaching countryside views but is just a few minutes’ drive from the shops and amenities of Matlock town centre. It has a guide price of £225,000.

The house, 46 Hackney Road in Matlock is due to be sold in SDL Auctions’ national property auction on May 28, which will be conducted by managing director and auctioneer Andrew Parker from the company’s auction studio and broadcast live over the internet.

Robert Stone, head of auctions East Midlands, said: “As the weeks of lockdown turn into months, people are clearly craving some space around them, with countryside properties with gardens becoming more in demand. This Matlock cottage is surrounded by fields with incredible countryside views, yet just a few minutes from the town. It offers the best of both worlds and nobody could object to being locked down here.

“Both of these properties show that you don’t have to head into the middle of nowhere to get the green space you dream of; you can find it right here in Derbyshire and at an affordable price, too.”
