Location 
Averill Farm is situated in a popular rural location just outside the village of Morton. The village of Morton has a small range of facilities including a post office, public houses and a primary school. The market towns of Chesterfield and Alfreton offer a wider range of facilities including supermarkets, high street shops, restaurants and secondary schools. There are many nearby local walks and bridleways including the Five Pits Trail. The village has rural countryside surrounding, however benefits from excellent access onto main roads leading to the A61 within 1.5 miles and the A38 leading to the M1 motorway within 6.25 miles away providing quick access to the market towns of Alfreton (6 miles), Chesterfield (8 miles) and Clay Cross (4 miles) and the cities of Derby (20 miles), Nottingham (20 miles) and Sheffield (21 miles) away.

Background  
We understand the vendors have occupied the farm for the past 40 years, therefore the farm has not been offered onto the market for some considerable time. The main farmhouse dates back to the 1950's and the present owners have expanded the farm over this time. The sale arises due to retirement of the current owners.

Directions  
From junction 28 on the M1 motorway, head west towards Alfreton on the A38 dual carriageway. Take the junction signposted for Alfreton. Take the third exit onto the A61 Chesterfield Road and continue into Alfreton. Continue forward straight through two sets of traffic lights and out of Alfreton down the hill. Follow the A61 into the village of Shirland then onto the village of Higham. Continue along the A61 round a sharp right hand bend passing the Greyhound pub on the right, then onto the village of Stretton. After the turning for Mickley, take the next right hand turning onto Morton Road sign posted for Morton. Continue along Morton Road merging into Stretton Road into the village of Morton. The first property on the left will be Morton Grange and the driveway to the farm will be on the left passing down the side of Morton Grange as indicated by our ?For Sale' board. Continue down the lane and the farm stead will be found after half a mile.
