THE GREEN in the Derbyshire village of Hope is one of the most imposing and prestigious houses in the area.

Dating back to 1900, it was originally the family home of Mr TC Harrison, who founded the famous national car dealership that bore his name. Mr Harrison was great friends with Tomorrow's World BBC TV presenter Raymond Baxter who was a regular visitor.

Since then, various owners have extended and improved the house to its present 7 bedrooom glory, and now featuring a heated indoor swimming pool.

FRONT  OF HOUSE

You'll be greeted by a wide sweeping drive around an ornamental fountain - parking space for around 10 cars.

REAR  OF HOUSE

Very sheltered and south facing - on a sunny day it's heaven if you're sitting in a deckchair with a chilled glass in hand..

SOUTH VIEW - GARDEN

Absolute privacy! And a wonderful mature wood at the end of the garden. Great for hide and seek.

EAST VIEW

View over the garden hedge, towards the Hope Valley. You are located in open countryside, yet only 2 minutes walk from the village centre, with 3 good pubs and several shops. The bars and music venus of Sheffield are only a 30 minute drive away - great for a stag or hen night out using local minibus hire.
