A Brief History
Southlands is a Grade II listed building, built circa 1850 making it a Victorian property built in the Georgian style. It is located in the centre of the village of Matlock Bath which was developed as a Spa town. The house is constructed of dressed Yorkshire stone with a welsh slate roof and a Roman Doric style portico. It was originally part of the Methodist Church buildings. The property was originally known as number 1 Fountain Villas. The property has been a bed and breakfast guest house. The current owners have owned the property for over 30 years and have used the building as a very successful and respected residential home for a good part of that time and latterly have chosen to split the property into two substantial dwellings.
The ground floor apartment has four double bedrooms, the first floor apartment has two. The three ceiling roses on the ground floor were commissioned, designed and fitted by a local craftsman. The moulds were destroyed making them unique to this property. All sash windows have secondary glazing.
