We understand that the property was constructed in 1963 by the existing vendors family, originally having been registered as a Small Holding, but which is now lapsed. In more recent years, the property has been structurally extended to provide high-quality spacious accommodation, with early internal inspection highly recommended. The property also offers excellent opportunity for further structural extension or loft conversion, subject to requirements and obtaining the usual planning and building regulation approvals. The property has been designed in such a way, that all principal rooms are to the rear and are approximately south-facing with views over open countryside, and all have remote-controlled awnings with two also having inset lighting. Internally, the property has been extensively refurbished and we understand was rewired in approximately 2007, and also boasts a useful and highly adaptable range of outbuildings which not only has a stable block for the adjoining pony paddocks, but also a large workshop and adjoining barns, which would be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to change of use, together with planning and building regulation approvals.

Specification - The property is approached via the enclosed entrance hall with inner door leading to the reception hall, generous lounge with bi-fold doors to the rear patio and enjoying southerly views over surrounding countryside, separate sitting room, luxury living dining kitchen with a range of quality fitments and integrated appliances, utility room, master double bedroom suite with built-in wardrobes, en-suite dressing room and wet room, guest double bedroom suite with built-in wardrobes, en-suite dressing room and wet room, double bedroom three, and family bathroom. Outside, the property enjoys an impressive wide frontage of approximately 150-feet with semi-circular driveway, separate driveway to the side affording access to the outbuildings and paddock to the rear, extensive formal gardens with lawns and shrub borders, and to the rear full-width paved patio with southerly aspects. There is an extensive range of useful outbuildings to include double garage, outside WC, two loose boxes, tack room, mower store, large workshop with store, large barn, and field shelter, together with the adjoining pony paddock to the rear. We understand that Stonewold has a gross internal area (GIA) of approximately 2,348-sq. ft./218.2-m2, the outbuildings extend to 2,061-sq. ft./191.47-m2, and the garage block 366-sq. ft./34-m2 or thereabouts.

Horsley Lodge is within walking distance of the property, with Morley Hayes and two other golf courses at Breadsall Priory all within approx. one-mile travelling distance. The property enjoys a rural setting with delightful southerly views to the rear over the garden and pony paddock to countryside beyond.

Directions - When leaving Derby city by vehicle, proceed north from the pentagon traffic island on the A61 Alfreton Road, continuing straight across at the first two traffic islands, then at the third traffic island turn right for Breadsall Village onto Croft Lane.
