The property is situated in rural surroundings, yet only 1 mile to the east of the village of Codnor, 12 miles from the City of Derby and 14 miles from Nottingham. It is situated in an elevated position with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Access to the property is gained from Aldecar and taking Aldecar Lane (passing under the A610) and continuing for approximately 1 ½ miles whereupon the property is situated on the right hand side.

The sale of Castle Farm offers a wonderful opportunity to develop this site with a large former Grade II listed farmhouse, currently split into two cottages and requiring renovation, together with a range of traditional farm buildings that have planning consent for conversion into three dwellings. The property sits on a site extending to 3.36 acres. In addition, a former milk bottling plant is available as an option, subject to separate negotiation. The site of the option is shaded blue and extends to 1.32 acres.

Castle Farm adjoins Codnor Castle and it is understood that Codnor Castle dates back to the 11th Century.

The farmhouse itself is constructed of brick and stone under a tiled roof and has a ground floor area in excess of 2,000 sq ft. Parts of the farmhouse are three storey, parts two storey together with additional cellars. There are a range of what would be classed as residential outbuildings in close proximity.

The nearby farmbuildings, constructed of brick under a tile roof, have a mix of single and two storey buildings and have planning consent granted by Amber Valley Borough Council (Reference: AVA/2011/0039) for renovation and conversion for use as three dwellings. Please see the planning section for further details. There are also a number of former agricultural buildings.

The former bottling plant measures some 220ft x 80ft and is shaded blue on the attached plan. It is considered that there may be some potential for conversion or alternative use (subject to planning).

Overall this represents a wonderful opportunity.

Viewing is strictly by appointment only through the sole agents Bakewell Office 01629 812 777. Please note that parts of the property are in poor repair and viewing the site unaccompanied is not permitted.

Planning consent was originally refused under application AVA/2006/1051 on the 4th June 2007. An appeal was submitted and allowed with the decision dated 18th March 2008 (appeal reference is APP/M1005/A/07/2053745/WF). A further application was submitted (AVA/2011/0039) to extend the previous planning consent and this was approved on the 18th April 2011. Full details are available on Amber Valley Borough Council’s website.
