Property Description

Full description

** Of interest to steam enthusiasts and Fred Dibnah fans ** This Grade II listed building is the former home of the late Fred Dibnah MBE and offers a chance in a lifetime to own something very special and preserve a piece of our heritage. The property has featured in the many TV documentaries and films Fred made about his life and his passion for steam and our Industrial Heritage. The appearance is that of a single storey Victorian Gothic gatehouse from the front and was built around 1854. It was then sympathetically extended in 1990 to create a unique property having a traditional cottage feel with stone, tile and mock beams, feature fireplaces and a refurbished range all complemented by a fitted kitchen with Rayburn and a bathroom with shower. The plot adjoins the Fred Dibnah Heritage Centre, which is also for sale through Greenwood James, and includes his engine shed, workshops and a mine shaft - complete with winding gear. Please contact us for full details.

Overview - The house itself was originally built around1854 and was used as a park keepers lodge. It is a Grade II listed building of a somewhat unique design, appearing to be single storey when viewed from the road, but being two storey at the rear. The current owners also operate the adjoining Heritage Centre as a business, running tours of the works and house, and even offering overnight stays in a guest bedroom in the house for the real Fred enthusiasts. Greenwood James are also acting for the sale of the adjoining Heritage Centre which means that there is the opportunity to either own and run the business or to receive a rental income from the site. Please contact us for further details.
