EweMove Leek & Hanley are honoured to offer to the market this stunning 17th century farmhouse in Calton, Staffordshire.

The Property Itself

Well? Where to begin? How about from the very start? This sensational stone built farmhouse had it's beginnings deep within the 17th century. As the industrial revolution began to spark into motion and the country itself prepared to spread it's reach across the globe, this property duly followed suit and was expanded to a grander size, with the expansion work finishing in 1773. As well as fulfilling the purpose of a simple farmhouse, the property has also acted as a cheese factory and has now come to rest as a gorgeous countryside retreat, set in the centre of 16 acres of rolling fields, offering panoramic views of some of the best countryside the Staffordshire Moorlands has to offer.

Field House Farm would be a fabulous opportunity for large or extended family and for those with equestrian, outdoor or farming hobbies.

The Grounds

Clocking in at 16 acres, the land which accompanies this property is vast. Field House Farm sits centrally and is surrounded by well maintained gardens and an extremely generous parking area. Interspersed throughout the luscious green fields are 70-80 large trees, which provide shelter on the boundaries, as well as shelter for a plethora of wildlife. However, also contained within the estate are a separate cottage, aptly named The Cottage, a self-contained studio apartment with a treble garage and a huge stable shed, which contains eight stables with two attached lean-to's. These are currently used as a wood store and a storage area respectively. Three separate, free standing stables are located within the grounds in addition to the stable shed.

The Surrounding Area

Field House Farm and it's land is set within The Peak District National Park border. A short drive, 4 miles in fact to the south, is the thriving, picturesque Derbyshire market town of Ashbourne. Famous for it's medieval charm, historic buildings, high quality shops and for being home to two of the best performing schools in the country.

Rental Income Streams & Opportunities

One of the biggest allures of this property is the rental potential of the various outlying buildings, which can provide a generous income as you enjoy all the estate has to offer. First up is a 2 bed cottage. Converted from a stables in 1986, it is currently occupied and has a rental income of £650 PCM. Set behind The Cottage is a self contained studio apartment, built in 1974 and set on top of a triple garage - although one garage has been converted into a storage room. This could be let as a studio apartment, due to the inclusion of a kitchen and bathroom, or an office for a young aspiring business. The large stable shed, which contains 8 stables and was built in 1986, is perfect to let out to eager riders and can realise £200-£300 PCM, per stable. And of course, there is the accompanying land which can be utilised with the stables as a package or even as a holiday park for 'caravanistas' who wish to enjoy all that The Peak District has to offer.
