If you have been looking for a property that provides you with the opportunity to create your dream home, this is it! Glenholme occupies a picturesque setting at the foot of Butterley Reservoir and is surrounded by lovely countryside where you can sit out and just enjoy the sound of the stream meandering along the bottom of the garden, and listen to an array of birdsong. The current owners have had plans drawn up for a fantastic scheme to utilise the integral barn and hayloft as well as extending the property to create an absolutely stunning residence and they will be available to see when viewing the property. As it stands, Glenholme is a lovely stone built detached home ready for the next owner to come in and make it their own. The property sits in 0.64 acre of well-established gardens and mature trees. It is nicely tucked away, yet still accessible to all the village amenities, train station, and public footpaths take you up onto the Pennine hills.
