A characterful and charming Grade II listed property located on the fringe of Buxton, this handsome cottage is enveloped in beautiful gardens. The age of the limestone building is uncertain but parts of the property are believed to date back to the early 17th century. Pevsner mentioned the cottage in his book Buildings of England.
Attractive original features include exposed timber beams, charming stone mullioned windows, traditional fireplaces and a stained glass window, thought to be from the nearby church at Fairfield which was rebuilt in 1838.
The large open plan living room was previously two separate rooms and includes fireplaces at both ends. There’s also a spacious breakfast room with an Aga, a main kitchen, a utility room, study, entrance porch and wc. There are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate wc on the first floor.
The marvellous gardens were designed in the 1950s and completely surround the cottage. They feature large lawns and a sweeping driveway that leads to a garage/workshop at the rear. Yhelt Cottage has views towards High Peak Golf Course and enjoys a convenient location within easy reach of Buxton’s various amenities and its renowned Opera House.
