In the sellers own words, The Old Post Office, Lea, near Matlock


We were looking to move into the area when we came across The Old Post Office. Though the building was in need of a lot of love and attention. We could see its potential to become an ideal family home In a place that we could see ourselves bringing up our family. Since then the property has undergone a complete transformation. With the layout of the rooms totally reconfigured to better suit residential purposes. Creating an open welcoming space, ideal for everyday family life and entertaining alike The huge living kitchen area is where we live our lives Enabling us to all be together or to employ the different areas separately according to our needs We have chosen decor which is bright and contemporary Taking advantage of large windows to enhance the feeling of space and light The old post office is a fantastically proportioned family home and we shall miss the amount of space we have here both inside and out We also did lots of work outside We have levelled out the plot for the rear garden, creating two main areas to include a decked area with lighting and fire pit Perfect for alfresco entertaining and enjoying the evening Sun To the side of the house is a driveway whilst the front garden is mostly laid to lawn We really love this location The local primary schools are outstanding with a very good teacher to student ratio and well regarded staff as well as a keen sense of community involvement in the running of the school There is also a shop, a park just across the street and a friendly local pub. We have the best of a quiet village setting here whilst just being ten minutes from Matlock and 25 minutes from Chesterfield and Derby It’s lovely and quiet here. Nothing disturbs us until the birds began to sing each morning Having put so much of ourselves into the house we shall take with as many happy memories from our time here from when the renovations began to the time spent living in the Old Post Office since
