VENDOR INTERVIEW "When we first viewed Hall View Cottage nearly 15 years ago, it was the views of Hardwick Hall and the rolling countryside that sold it to us immediately. We're quietly tucked away down a track off a country lane which makes the positioning completely idyllic and the surrounding fields very much feel like part of the garden which gives such a feeling of space," say the current owners.
"We visit Hardwick Hall regularly and we will miss not having it on our doorstep. There are several walks around the immediate area that we enjoy and it's great to be able to leave the car at home and access the countryside straight from our back door. There are a good range of amenities in the local area and Chesterfield is less than 10 minutes away which offers a good range of shops and restaurants, as well as various sports and recreational facilities. We enjoy days out in Bakewell and Buxton, the Tissington and Monsal Trails, Carsington Water and Chatsworth."
"Our garden is peaceful and private. The split-level lawn has been fantastic for our daughter to sledge down in the winter and roll down in the summer. We've celebrated her birthday parties here in the garden every August and the memories of blue skies and children enjoying themselves will last forever. It's very relaxing to sit under the stars on a summer evening with a glass of wine listening to the sound of running water from the water feature and we enjoy sitting with a good book under the tree at the bottom of the garden."
"The kitchen is the hub of the house as it is so spacious and we love the warmth of the AGA, whilst the lounge is a great room for all seasons. We open the French doors in summer which really does bring the outside in and it's very cosy with the log burner lit on a cold winters evening. The span of windows allows the seasons come alive."
"We like the size and layout of the house and we have loved living on one level. It's a small hamlet where we know all our neighbours but have privacy and peace too. Rural living combined with such well-connected roads has been perfect for us and having easy access to the Peak District has enabled us to make the most of family and leisure time," conclude the current owners.
"The entire property underwent a complete scheme of renovation in 2018 and we've made other enhancements too, including the addition of the southerly facing lounge with French doors opening onto the patio area which has meant that the views of the countryside could be fully appreciated. The changes have increased our living space both in terms of work, leisure and storage and have worked positively for us. Cosmetically, it has been lovely to see the property completed and we have thoroughly enjoyed living in the finished product!"
