Vicarage Cottage on Butts View, Bakewell, constructed in 1870 and designed by the noted architect Alfred Waterhouse, was converted into a family home during the 20th century.

And, it is being marketed by Fine & Country for offers over £850,000.

The current owner of the Grade II listed house said: “We have: re-wired throughout, replaced the boiler and both bathrooms, refitted the kitchen, redecorated and re-carpeted all the rooms at least once, upgraded and maintained the passenger lift to conform to current safety standards, re-painted the exterior, and replaced and re-built the upper garden terrace.

"We also acquired planning permission to convert two of the three garages into a large guest bedroom, bathroom, store, utility room and study.”

The garden spans 0.41 of an acre and boasts the oldest walnut tree in Bakewell, the owner added: “The yew hedges are thought to date from the original design in 1870, and are accompanied by numerous shrubs, lawns and other flora. There are three patio areas – one with a well - and an upper terrace. Re-built in 2016, this fantastic terrace provides views towards Bakewell Church and the golf course across the valley.”
