House-hunters flock to view cottage on the edge of Peak District
A stone cottage near Glossop is causing a stir among house-hunters, with dozens of viewing requests within a few hours of the property going live on the SDL Auctions website.
Nestled within a cluster of similar properties, 6 Chew Wood in Chisworth is on the edge of a wooded area surrounded by open countryside just minutes from the Peak District National Park, yet only three miles from Glossop’s town centre.
The three-storey property is to be sold by SDL Auctions – now the UK’s most successful live-streamed property auctioneer* – in its July auction, with **guide price of £95,000+
The cottage features a lounge and kitchen area on the ground floor, a double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, and a second double bedroom on the top floor. Outside there are paved seating areas at the front and rear.
Andy Thompson, head of auctions North West said: “What a great buy this will be, at an incredibly attractive guide price for this area, providing the potential for a great return for an investor.
“The property ticks all the right boxes; a fine old cottage packed with character and kerb appeal, a low-maintenance outdoor space and an incredible location. It’s no wonder we’ve had so much interest from potential buyers already.”
The cottage, which has gas central heating and double glazing, is thought to be around 200 years old and built for mill workers at the 19th-century Chew Wood Mill, which fell out of use in the 1930s and was subsequently demolished.
Andy said: “There is potential here to create a fabulously stylish home without losing any of the property’s charm and character. It would be ideal for a first-time buyer, a small family or a developer looking for a unique renovation project. And with walks, cycle rides and woodland right on the doorstep, the location couldn’t be more perfect.”
Public transport links are excellent with regular bus services into Glossop and Marple town centres, and the nearest railway station being at nearby Stockport. Manchester city centre is around a 40-minute drive away, making it an ideal location for commuters seeing a quieter life.
Since the start of lockdown, SDL Auctions has switched its room auctions to live-streamed auctions with remote bidding only, attracting huge audiences and raising more than £55 million for sellers.
