5 bedroom detached house for sale
Church Road, Quarndon Village, Derby, DE22 5JB
Set in beautiful secluded gardens and grounds.
The Mount can be found just 3 miles north of the city of Derby in the sought after and attractive village of Quarndon. Facilities in the village include a school, cricket club, public house, church and village hall. Quarndon was once known as a spa village due to The Chelybeate Well which is located just a few yard from The Mount. It was said to produce iron impregnating spring water and was even visited by Robinson Crusoe author Daniel Defoe in 1727 during his grand tour of Great Britain. The water ceased to flow in 1817 due to an earth termor.
The village is well placed for the major road networks around Derby with the M1, A50, A6 and A38 all within easy reach. Trains from Derby reach London St Pancras in approximately 90 minutes.

Kedleston Hall is a short distance away and there are golf courses at Duffield, Kedleston and Allestree.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The gardens lie to the west, south and east of the house with the main area stretching to the east down to a babbling brook and beyond. A huge amount of work and attention to detail have gone into creating stunning gardens which cannot be seen from the road and come as a complete surprise once you reach the rear of the house.
Wide areas of beautifully manicured lawns are interspersed with intensely planted areas of garden with imaginative shapes and colours. Along the south boundary is a woodland walk and over the charming brook is a pretty wooden bridge.
