Full description

Tenure: Freehold

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. There are formal gardens and paddock.

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. 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. There are excellent walks in the area via the old disused railway setting which gives access to Stafford and the villages of Haughton and Gnosall. 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.
