Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An elegant and attractive Hall of good proportions with its origins in the 17th century offered on the market for the first time since 1993. Whilst large the home is eminently ''liveable in" and has a cosy quality to it, it provides plenty of accommodation which will be ideal for the family market. Commanding superb, southerly aspects and a lovely, private walled garden to the rear which forms part of approximately four acres of land. There is planning permission granted for the development of four listed barns to form residential dwellings at little disruption to the hall's privacy, accessed from the rear lane, and the current vendor would possibly consider a separate sale of these barns.

Location Dunston Hall is situated off Dunston Road just before Dunston Hall Garden Centre, within a short journey to the centre of Chesterfield and the A61 which links the property to Sheffield. The property is situated on the outskirts of Barlow and Cutthorpe and will appeal to those who require easy commuting to the motorway corridors of the M1. Local amenities are plentiful in Chesterfield, with more comprehensive facilities available in Sheffield.  

Description In 1826 Elizabeth Smith, who was part of the Milnes family, remodelled the property, building a spacious two story extension and completely replacing the front facade to tie the two properties together. The splendid front garden, together with the parkland it overlooks, benefits from an historic park and garden designation. In total the gardens extend to approximately four acres of land, are immaculate and have been well maintained and designed by the current vendors. Despite its grandeur and original features the property has also been well maintained and been re-roofed in recent years. The current vendors have also obtained planning permission and listed building consent for four residential dwellings on the site of the existing barns. There is also an original ha-ha at the front of the property which would have been designed to keep the livestock away from the formal gardens. The property has mains electric, oil fired central heating and drainage via a septic tank.

The Hall is approached via two driveways, with one sweeping past the front formal gardens to a turning circle. The impressive stone storm porch opens to a fabulous reception hall with York stone flooring and a magnificent cantilevered staircase rising to the upper floors. Off the hall there is a cloakroom/wc set beneath the stairs. The drawing room has two full height windows and an original open fire, and on the other side of the hall the lovely dining room has a black marble surround to the open fire and broad timber flooring extending into the front bay. Off the dining room there is a butler's pantry and access through to the inner hallway which leads down to the library with fitted bookshelves and a further bay window. Beyond this the side lobby accesses the rear drive and the annexe area, which would be ideal for a live-at-home nanny, it contains a shower room, bedroom, potential for a kitchen/store and stairs to the children's rooms on the first floor. At the rear of the property the breakfasting kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units and overlooks the beautiful walled gardens to the rear and from the kitchen there is an additional staircase rising to the first floor.

On the first floor the master suite includes a dressing room and bathroom, with a nursery situated to the side. There is a first floor living room (with stairs descending to the kitchen) where you will find a white marble fireplace and lovely views over the walled gardens from its first floor vantage point. On this floor there are a further three double bedrooms and a modern bathroom. In the original part of the property a further flight of stairs rises to the second floor where you can find two further large double bedrooms, one of which features an en suite shower room, a gym, and an additional staircase that descends to the first floor living room.

Externally the property is surrounded by beautiful gardens including the magnificent walled garden area. The front façade is clad with Virginia Creeper and Wisteria, adding to its already notable charm. The courtyard garden to the rear features garaging for several vehicles. On the other side of the gardens there is access to the barns that have planning permission granted for residential dwellings, or which could also be retained and developed into additional garaging space or ancillary accommodation if so desired. It is suggested that the future residents of any development would share the beautiful arboretum gardens which are an absolute delight and add another facet to the already magnificent grounds.
