Hammer time for Derbyshire holiday home
30th September 2014 – A delightful holiday home in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside is set to go under the hammer with Graham Penny Auctions next month for potentially as little as £95,000+.
The Old Chapel in Wheatcroft near Matlock, a former chapel believed to date back to the 16th Century, has been carefully converted into a holiday cottage with many features in keeping with its historic past and is going to auction on Thursday 23rd October at the iPro Stadium.
Andrew Parker, director at Graham Penny Auctions, commented: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire a superb holiday let in the heart of some of Derbyshire’s most beautiful and rustic countryside. The property is nestled into a hillside position in the heart of the Peak District but with easy access to local amenities.”
The Old Chapel features a terracotta floor entrance lobby leading to a large dining kitchen with marble work surfaces and a spiral staircase to the living room. In the living room is a cast iron multi-fuel stove standing on a heavy flag stone, there is an exposed beamed ceiling and multi paned double glazed windows to two sides with far reaching views over surrounding open countryside. An enamelled steel framed staircase continues to the mezzanine bedroom with en-suite which overlooks the living area with chapel-style balustrade which are believed to be the remains of the original chapel pulpit.
The Old Chapel is ideally suited to the holiday let market being a short drive from the Peak National Park, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Carsington Water. Matlock, Matlock Bath and the Crich Tramway Museum are just a short drive away.
Andrew added: “The attraction of buying a property at auction is that it’s a straightforward, transparent and quick process. On the fall of the hammer, the sale is secure, contracts are exchanged and the sale is completed within only a month.”
The Old Chapel, Wheatcroft, Matlock, DE4 5GU has a *guide price of £95,000+ and will be going under the hammer at the iPro Stadium on Thursday 23rd October. The legal packs will be available online for any potential buyers to view no later than seven days prior to the auction.
