"Ideally located in the glorious Derbyshire countryside, just a mile from the bustling town of Matlock, is Masson Lees Farm, an exceptional property that boasts twenty-six acres of land, superb equestrian facilities, a beautifully refurbished farmhouse, as well as a charming holiday cottage. When we began looking for a new home some thirteen years ago, I must admit that we had quite an extensive wish list. We wanted a lovely big family home that sat in its own land, that wasn't close to any neighbours or a busy road, however we also didn't want it to be a million miles from civilisation. When we came across Masson Lees Farm, it ticked every single box. It sits in this beautiful rural location and is surrounded by acres of private land. It's very peaceful here, totally private, the views are incredible and yet we can jump in the car and be in Matlock town centre in five minutes."
"We wanted to transform the house back into a really lovely family home and one that would suit modern living, however, to some extent we also wanted to return it to its former glory. So, as well as creating a large family kitchen with painted units, granite worktops and under-floor heating, stylishly updating the bathrooms and beautifully redecorating throughout, we also restored and enhanced those features that had survived and reinstated those that had been removed. It's now a very spacious, light, bright, comfortable house and one that also has a huge amount of character and charm, striking the balance between old and new."
The house sits in the middle of the twenty-six acres, and beyond the boundary of the property is nothing but rolling farmland and woodland, so the views are incredible.
"Over time we've added a range of equestrian facilities and we've improved the overall quality of the pastureland so the fields are now full of a variety of wildflowers, herbs and grasses, all things that horses really thrive on. We also have a beautiful cottage garden with open lawn and gorgeous herbaceous borders that create a riot of colour during spring and summer, and there are lots of lovely places to just sit out, relax and soak in these amazing surroundings."
"We have a fabulous array of shops, good restaurants, pubs and amenities just minutes away, so we're by no means isolated, and yet within the house and grounds you really do get the feeling of being miles from anywhere."
"We've decided that the time is right to downsize, and if we could find everything we have here on a much smaller scale we'd be over the moon. We've been so happy here and we know it's going to be extremely hard to find anywhere else quite so idyllic."*
