Description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire in 5 Lots a traditional Derbyshire farm which offers so much potential to renovate and convert.

The Farm briefly consists of a family 4 bedroomed Grade II listed stone built farmhouse, substantial stone barn and other stone courtyard outbuildings and a large portal steel framed livery building in all housing 14 ponies with approx 101.87 acres of private grassland and woodland with superb open vistas of the Derbyshire countryside towards Dronfield and the Drone Valley.

The agricultural buildings offer the exciting opportunity for possible redevelopment and conversion to residential homes or holiday lets as a possible alternative to agricultural uses (subject to planning). The adjacent fields provide good quality grazing for both livery + livestock and for mowing all of which is contained within a ringed fence.

In addition to its picturesque rural location the property is conveniently located just 1 mile from the centre of Dronfield Town which provides a range of local amenities including shops, GP surgery and Henry Fanshaw School, rated as “Outstanding” in 2015 Ofsted inspection.

Larger urban centres are within easy access with Chesterfield being approximate 4.2 miles south and Sheffield less than 6 miles to the north.

Overhead electricity lines cross the property in a north-south direction offering potential connectivity back to the Grid or to supply future diversification projects (STP).

The land, identified by Natural England as Agricultural Land Classification as Grade 4, features light loamy soils over sandstone of the Rivington series mainly Bardsey type ‘slowly permeable seasonally wet acid loamy and clayey soils’ with the exception of Lot 5 which mainly features Rivington 1 type ‘freely draining slightly acidic loamy soils’.

The soils are well-suited for grass production for dairying and beef or cereal production for feed.
