Reduced Price £795,000 as from 28th July 2015

Padley Hall sits on the outskirts of the historic Derbyshire market town of Ripley, which itself was noted in the Domesday Book.

Ripley provides an excellent strategic base, with Derby and Nottingham only 11 and 14 miles away respectively. To access the A38 requires only a 2 mile drive and junction 28 of the M1 is just over 8 miles to the
east. Train connections are excellent, with Ambergate station and Alfreton Parkway Station being within 4 miles with journey times of only 16 minutes to Derby or 30 minutes to Sheffield.

For the first time in over thirty five years, Padley Hall is offered on the open market.

The Hall sits in an enviable elevated position just outside of Ripley and is a spectacular residence. The current Hall retains features dating back to the late 15th Century half-timbered cross wing hall on the site. The visible facade of the property dates from the mid-17th Century with later, primarily 19th Century additions. The Hall is known to have been frequented by the poet DH Lawrence.

The Hall boasts a wealth of original distinctive period features that can only be appreciated by inspection. The calibre of the internal finish of the Hall is quite special.
