Derrington was awarded Best Kept Small Village in Staffordshire 2012 and also features very pleasant recreational areas of Millennium Way, Millennium Field and Dudda's Wood.

A very rare opportunity to acquire a most attractive and substantial residence, situated within the heart of the village.

In addition there is an adjoining self-contained two bedroom cottage. Superb range of traditional buildings incorporating two/three car garage, stables, tack room and store which offer potential for conversion into Studio/Office etc (subject to relevant planning consent). There are formal gardens.

The main house dates back to the early 18th Century (1708) and has a wealth of both charm and character and many exposed timbers and original features. We understand that the cottage dates back even further to the 17th Century (1606). Both of which are Grade II Listed.

Our clients purchased the main house and cottage in 1980 and immediately undertook a thorough and comprehensive programme of works. They have over the years continued to maintain the property with external decoration, the doors to the outbuildings were replaced with fine handmade oak doors with wrought iron antique style hinges and furniture.

Attractive courtyard and outbuildings. Lovely secluded garden areas.

Derrington is a very appealing village having a country pub, millennium green which was officially opened by the Princess Royal and surrounded by some lovely countryside.

The county town of Stafford has a wide range of amenities including high street shops and stores, general hospital, university, mainline intercity railway station and junctions 13 and 14 of the M6 provide direct access into the national motorway network and M6 Toll.
