Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious four bedroom stone built period country house carefully renovated and extended to create an outstanding home of great charm, in a delightful private setting with views down towards Ogston Reservoir


Yew Tree Farm sits above Ogston Reservoir in a fine rural setting and within easy reach of Matlock close to the borders of the Peak District National Park. There are excellent road connections linking to the A38 and the M1 Motorway at Junction J28 being approx 6.5 miles.

Access to the house from the south is best approached proceeding off the A38 and taking the A615 to Matlock. Follow the signpost turning right at Wessington Village to Brackenfield and follow the road through to Woolley and Ogston Reservoir. Proceed past the reservoir on Ogston New Road.

After the entrance to the sailing club proceeding up the short hill, continue straight on into Quarry Lane and the property will be seen on the left hand side.

From the north proceeding south on the A61 turn right onto the B6014 at the White Bear Public House, proceed towards Stretton and take the left fork continuing on the B6014 towards Ashover Hay. Ogston Reservoir and the sailing club will come into view and take the left hand turning onto Quarry Lane towards the sailing club and just before the road bends round to the left towards the club take the right hand turning and the property will then again be seen on the left hand side.


The extensive property has been carefully created from the original period stone farmhouse extended into a range of original agricultural buildings to create a home of great style and character. The house is virtually double glazed and with oil fired central heating, under floor in part. Generous garaging, storage and workshop set to the side. The setting of the house above Ogston Reservoir allows commanding views down across the gardens to the reservoir and sailing club and the open countryside beyond.

The accommodation in brief comprises an open entrance porch to
a lovely sitting room with a carefully conceived and installed historic low rise oak staircase which leads to the upper floor. There is a well proportioned principal drawing room which leads onto a wonderful double height garden room/studio with under floor heating which leads outside into its own private courtyard and terrace area and the main gardens beyond. Within the original main house is the very well presented and fitted breakfast kitchen, a rear hallway with secondary staircase to the upper floor, dining room and an inner hall with cloaks, laundry/utility and a good sized walk in pantry.

The first floor has a split landing which leads to a master bedroom suite with a deep picture window which looks across the double height space of the garden room to the countryside beyond. There is a generous separate en suite shower room and W.C. The principal library landing area gives access to three further good bedrooms, two with built in wardrobes/cupboards and a carefully conceived separate bathroom with walk in dressing area.

The property is approached into a spacious gated paved courtyard area which leads onto the substantial double garaging within an adjoining barn with storage and secure workshop which links through to the garden room.

The setting and gardens of the house are a particular feature with generous lawns, well stocked mature plantsman borders and an upper lawned garden area with mature fruit trees and all with wonderful views down toward Ogston Reservoir and the sailing club. There is a lower walled area with soft fruits and vegetable area.

The house has PV units fitted to the side elevation with Aurora PV solar units.
