The Old Nursery is a magnificent detached country residence enjoying an elevated position that commands an outstanding panoramic outlook of breath-taking, far-reaching countryside views.
This five bedroom (plus study/sixth bedroom) family home provides versatile accommodation ideal to create a home office suite or annexe, showcasing a wealth of character and being offered with no upward chain. The grounds include a mature secluded garden of 0.6 acre and the house enjoys a stunning open outlook over an adjoining paddock which extends to 4.7 acres.
Although in a very central location close to good road networks, the property is in a secluded spot, nestled against ancient woodlands, and located at the end of a no through country lane which leads on to a bridle path, making it an ideal location for those with equestrian interests.
The Old Nursery originally dates back to the early 1700s, and has been remodelled and extended over time to create a spacious and impressive family home. The interiors have been bespoke finished by the current vendors, having a quality fitted kitchen and utility room, a reclaimed stone fireplace and carved oak accents throughout. The property offers versatile interiors including a ground floor guest wing which could easily be converted into a self-contained annexe or home office suite. The property is serviced by hardwood double glazing, oil fired central heating, a private drainage system and a security alarm.
The grounds include a raised stone paved terrace that overlooks the generous formal gardens which include a kitchen garden, orchard, netted soft fruit area and a decorative pizza oven. The house conveniently looks onto adjoining level and well drained pasture land that extends to 4.7 acres and benefits from gated access out onto Wood Edge Lane.
The front door opens into a spacious reception hall which leads off into two generous reception rooms, a dining kitchen, utility and cloakroom to the ground floor. Two bedrooms and a bathroom are also off the reception hall being ideal for use as a guest annexe, Air BnB type rental or home office suite. To the first floor are four double bedrooms serviced by a modern en suite and family bathroom. Outside, a detached double garage with electric doors is set to the top of the lane and there is gated access to a generous driveway to the front enjoying stunning open views out across the Dove Valley to the Peak District.
