Grindsbrook Booth, Edale, Hope Valley
We are delighted to offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to buy a strikingly beautiful five-bedroom, 17th-century, Grade-II listed family home located at the very start of the Pennine Way, in the heart of the Peak District National Park and barely 40 minutes by train to the centres of Sheffield and Manchester.
The Old Parsonage is one of the most desirable houses in Edale, a thriving village with a school, shop, cafe and two pubs. Built of local gritstone, with a stone slate roof, it is flanked by manicured lawns, dry stone walls and a tumbling stream, and ringed by rolling hills with Kinder Scout forming a dramatic backdrop. It is coming on the market after 65 years of ownership by one family. The house needs some modernisation and retains many original features. We expect a property of such outstanding character to attract great interest, so we strongly recommend an early viewing. It is for sale with no onward chain. Outside, the Old Parsonage boasts approximately a third of an acre of grounds that include a workshop and other outbuildings as well as potential parking for up to three cars. The ground floor comprises a reception hall, sitting room with beamed ceiling and multi-fuel stove, family room with beamed ceiling and open fire, rear lobby, cloakroom giving access to small cellar, kitchen with Rayburn, dining area and larder/pantry, utility area. Separate dining room. First Floor: bedroom one with views over Mam Tor and Mam Nick and the sweeping front lawn, en suite dressing room and bathroom. Four further bedrooms and family bathroom. "
