Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is situated in a particularly interesting and very attractive setting within the grounds of the historic village Church with the property enjoying a very pleasant aspect towards the Church.

Forming part of the village conservation area, High Street is a relatively peaceful and very pleasant location (not to be confused with the main road through the village) with the property itself occupying a commanding and very prominent position.

The village offers a good range of basic local facilities and amenities and stands within a very pleasant part of Staffordshire with easy access to Dimmingsdale. More comprehensive facilities are available in the nearby market towns of Ashbourne and Uttoxeter with the A50 standing approximately 8 miles away at Uttoxeter.

From the A50 Westbound from Derby, turn right at the second roundabout at Uttoxeter towards Rocester and Alton. At the next roundabout at Rocester, turn left towards Denstone, turning left at the next ‘T’ junction at Denstone and then follow this road towards the village of Alton. On entering Alton, turn right on the sharp left hand bend towards the centre of the village and on reaching the centre of the village, turn right on the sharp left hand bend onto High Street. The property is then situated on your left hand side by the Church.

An imposing detached Grade II Period residence in this very interesting and attractive setting. The property was constructed circa 1845 and is believed to have been built on the site of the Moot Hall (parish meeting place). The building was for many years the local Police station with evidence of the original Police cells still in situ.
