Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property has been a family home to the current owners for over 30 years. Improvements have been made to the property over the years and it has most recently undergone an extension to the rear providing excellent additional family living and entertaining space with full length windows overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside. Many original features and much of its charm have been retained and there is still potential for further modernisation and adaption to suit the purchasers own requirements. Having raised their family at Cornpark Cottage the current occupiers have latterly used the accommodation as a home along with bed & breakfast and self catering accommodation. The barn conversion is currently arranged as a holiday cottage and studio, offering potential to earn extra income subject to any necessary planning permissions.

This versatile property is likely to suit a wide variety of buyers as the accommodation could appeal to those looking to run bed & breakfast and holiday lets, or it could be a perfect combination for a family home with self contained barn conversion suitable for parents/dependant relatives. It may be that the property could be returned to two cottages - there are two front doors and two staircases - both could be used for rental accommodation whilst the owners occupy the barn. Alternatively, the barn could be used as an office/workshop for those desiring the plot for other business purposes (all subject to any necessary planning consents). With its extensive plot the property is also likely to appeal to those wanting to keep animals and generally indulge in the good life.

Situated in a rural setting surrounded by open countryside, alongside the A52, the property enjoys a good degree of privacy with no immediate neighbours. The mature gardens surrounding the property are full of surprises, as archways in hedges reveal secret picnic areas, a static van, henhouse, tennis court and pavilion, large fishable pond and vegetable plot, all enhanced by stunning views over the adjoining countryside. Conveniently situated within approximately 2 miles of Ashbourne town centre and with The Peak District National Park, Carsington Water, Alton Towers and the Churnet Valley all on the doorstep.
