An excellent and unique opportunity to purchase an idyllic three bedroomed detached farmhouse requiring modernisation with barn, workshop and garages set in approximately 0.68 acres of land and gardens contained within a traditional stone wall just a mile west of Chesterfield. The Property sits in open countryside in a beautiful, secluded area of Derbyshire. Included is a substantial partially rebuilt stone barn adjacent the house which has excellent conversion potential (STPP) and a workshop with adjoining garages.

The stone farmhouse consists of a diner kitchen and two reception rooms with solid fuel stoves, with 3 double bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. There is opportunity to update, redesign and extend within the surrounding grounds (STPP) to make this a lovely family home.

The adjoining barn (approx. 30’10” x 15’3”) originally built in circa 1858 has fantastic conversion potential perfect for a family member, holiday let, home office/gym or even a “tea shop” for people using the bridleway/camping etc (STPP) . The workshop and garages (totalling approx 42’10” x 14’10”) could also be part used for livery to complement the paddock to the rear of the farmhouse.

The property benefits from a large grass field to the rear and mature lawned garden to the front and side, with a separate small paddock leading from the garden which also connects to the main field giving privacy and the opportunity to keep livestock and to grow produce within this picturesque area bounded by woodland and a stream just the other side of the rear garden wall.

The curtilage of Wood Farm is marked edged red on the site plan.
