About the property
Most impressive four / five bedroomed character detached period residence occupying fabulous plot measuring approximately 2.2 acres, backing onto beautiful open countryside. Planning passed for ground floor extension. Extensive living accommodation ideal for a family in a stunning semi rural location.
This is a rare and interesting opportunity to acquire a charming period residence with the original part dating back to 1740. The property has been greatly improved over the years and extended to now provide an extensive and versatile, superbly appointed characterful detached residence in a beautiful semi-rural location. The property is sold with the benefit of no upward chain and features mains gas and sewerage. It is a truly beautiful family home in a fabulous semi rural setting.
The accommodation is beautifully presented and features large entrance hall with feature fireplace, separate dining room, lounge with feature fireplace, open plan dining kitchen with utility off, rear hallway leading to the conservatory and fitted guest cloakroom. We would point out that there is currently planning passed for an extension to create a sun room instead of a conservatory and to extend the dining kitchen. Plans can be found at Amber Valley planning portal AVA-2019-1200.Pictures of the proposed extension and elevations area also attached as photos.
To the first floor the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, there are three / four further bedrooms and a period styled family bathroom. Located off one of the bedrooms is a feature balcony / walkway connecting the first floor accommodation to the useful attic room over the double garage, which could be converted to form a fabulous home office, subject to any planning consents.

The approach from our Derby Office is to proceed out of Town along Mansfield Road through Chester Green, continue along Mansfield Road turning right onto the A608 heading north past Oakwood and through Morley. Eventually turn left at the Rose & Crown Public House proceed around the sharp right hand bend up the hill onto Cloves Hill which becomes Wood Land and eventually the property is tucked away on the right hand side, shortly before the car garage. Please note if you have reached the pub you have gone too far.
