Description

In the heart of Buxton, this beautiful second floor duplex apartment is set within a Grade II listed building and has been beautifully finished with superb attention to detail. Exuding space with generously sized separate living and dining areas, the apartment has been furnished with classic masterpieces such as Duresta sofas and the finest 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen. Wonderful roof top views across the old spa town, famous for its diverse architecture, can be enjoyed, and the famous Edwardian Buxton Opera House is located just opposite, and is a fine example of this. Next door to the Opera House are the Pavilion Gardens, 23-acres of award winning ornamental gardens and home to over 100 diverse fairs and events each year.

Buxton itself is bursting with visitor attractions, and the helpful owner can offer help and advice on fishing, golf, brewery or gliding experiences. Just beyond Buxton is the well known and loved Peak District National Park with its natural contrasting beauty that spans four English counties. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy endless amounts of walking and cycling, through peaks, moors, hills and dales with a number of fascinating market towns and pretty villages, such as Eyam, Castleton and Bakewell, easily accessible within half an hours drive. The magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate, Haddon Hall and Lyme Park can all be reached in around 30 minutes and for golf enthusiasts, Buxton is home to Cavendish Golf Club which, as a MacKenzie course, is recognised as one of the finest in Britain. Wincle Brewery is just 20 minutes away. Finally Buxton’s train station is just a 5 minute walk from the property and offers a direct service into Manchester in around an hour.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
