Tenure: Freehold

A substantial Grade II * Listed important and historic 18th Century house which has been sympathetically upgraded and modernised, set in approx 7.6 acres of partly walled gardens and grounds.


The property is situated to the edge of the attractive village of Lea, with a wonderful open aspect. The Hall is within easy reach of Matlock, with an excellent range of local facilities and amenities and the larger regional centres of Derby and Chesterfield are also within easy reach, with excellent access to a wide range of transport networks. The property is also within easy reach of the Peak District National Park, which has an array of outdoor pursuits and with the historical attractions of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall all nearby.


This is a glorious and historic Grade II* listed country house. The
original stone house dating from the 1700's with a wonderful Georgian front extension added in the mid 18th Century. The current owners have sympathetically upgraded and modernised the house over the last few years and it now offers excellent family accommodation arranged over three floors.

The house also has an integrated cottage which offers additional
accommodation and could also be used for a housekeeper or
potentially a manager's house should somebody wish to use the
property for holiday letting. The principal rooms are of generous
proportions, decorated and finished to a high standard and all enjoying wonderful views to the open countryside beyond the house. There is an excellent range of substantial stone buildings within the grounds, some of which offer potential for extending or creating additional accommodation, subject to necessary consents, or to provide potential holiday or ancillary residential accommodation.
