Brassington is a beautiful and historical village which has many wonderful buildings that have been carefully preserved. The village is set amongst the rocky limestone uplands of the
southern White Peak and is surrounded by spectacular countryside with far reaching views and wonderful walks. The village has two pubs, the award winning 400-year-old Ye Olde Gate Inne and The Miners Arms, recalling the lead mining history
of the village. The 900-year-old Church of St James overlooks the village and there is well-attended primary school as well as an infant group. In addition, there is a new sports field with a tennis
court. Although set in unspoilt countryside, Brassington is convenient for Wirksworth, Matlock and Ashbourne and commutable to Derby and Nottingham. The village is 10 minutes from the railway station at Cromford to give train access to London in just over two hours as well as other major centres.
Trough Cottage is a charming end-of-terrace cottage with an abundance of features including ceiling beams throughout, and a traditional stone fireplace. It is attractively presented and offers
well-proportioned accommodation, with an excellent flow of rooms.
There is a useful outbuilding, which offers workshop and storage space with a first-floor room above, and a courtyard to the rear of the cottage.
The front door leads into the breakfast kitchen which provides floor and wall mounted units including a full height pine dresser, a butler's sink with marble surround, a Esse range cooker, and tiled floor. A further door opens into the sitting room with a multi fuel log burner and stone surround. Off this room is a cellar. Wooden stairs lead up to the first floor where there are three
bedrooms and a bathroom.
To the rear of the house is an enclosed walled patio courtyard with raised flower beds and mature trees. Steps lead up to the workshop and store to the first-floor room. This building has scope to be put to a variety of uses which could include additional accommodation or a home office, subject to the necessary consents.
Grazing land extending to about 0.46 acres is available to the purchaser of Trough Cottage by separate negotiation. This land is located to the north of Brassington on Manystones Lane, about
660 metres from Trough Cottage.
