Property Description

Full description

With a charm that can only be found amidst the pages of a fairytale, Calton Moor House has a story that dates back to the 18th century. Originally built in 1725 as a coaching inn on the Birmingham-Manchester toll road, now the alluring building is one of the oldest surviving houses in the area that is still occupied.

This characteristic five-bedroom Grade II listed detached farmhouse, which sits approximately five miles north west of Ashbourne on the fringes of the Peak National Park, is surrounded by stunning countryside that allows for hours of exploring for even the most inquisitive souls.

Although situated close to one of the UK’s most breath-taking landscapes, favoured by poets and artists all around the world, many will find it difficult to leave this enchanting stone property and its incredible period features including a brick inset fireplace with log burning stove and beamed ceilings.

The spacious rooms and four en-suite bathrooms make this a perfect choice for growing families as well as those seeking a quiet haven to lose themselves in creative thoughts. Bursting with character, the current owners have chosen to combine traditional features alongside a range of modern updates such as specially built hardwood doubled glazed sash windows in the original Georgian style, which were fitted in 2014. The luxury fitted kitchen boasts Pippy solid oak units, granite work surfaces and range of integrated appliances.

The front door leads the way onto a charming Reception Hall with ground floor living space including; the main sitting room with beamed ceiling, a dual aspect family room that enjoys incredible views, a large hand-built kitchen, which was fitted in 2006, with wall mounted units, solid black polished granite work surfaces, Belfast sink, and Alfa Aga style cooker, along with a refitted utility room and cloakroom, both boasting Quartzite floor tiles.

However, hidden away lies further magic as the intrepid explorer will stumble across a set of stairs leading to the sizeable cellar. Consisting of several rooms and charming original features such as original salting stone, oven, water boiler and beer keg seats, this space is the perfect place for wine storage, business quarters or perhaps the ultimate children’s den, with tunnels built of Northampton brick leading from the original kitchen onto the spacious garden. One thing’s for sure the potential of this property is never-ending.

As you head upstairs, you’ll find the first-floor landing with doors off to three bedrooms featuring traditional fireplaces, modern en-suites, and views across the glorious fields. Last but not least, is the second-floor landing with bedrooms four and five and en-suite facilities.

Externally, prospective purchasers are welcomed by a decorative stone driveway providing ample parking and turning for numerous vehicles as well as access to the garage. The sizeable landscaped garden boasts an array of mature trees and can be accessed from two separate sides. Completing the external space is a delightful rear courtyard, ideal for al fresco dining.

Known as The Gateway to Dovedale, Ashbourne is a market town close to the Peak District National Park, offering more than 200 historical buildings and independent shops. Renowned for its Tudor and Georgian heritage, the area is a perfect base for those who enjoy leisurely walks, fascinating history and architecture and quaint cobbled streets. Cyclists, walkers, runners and horse riders will also be pleased to hear that the town sits at the start of the traffic-free Tissington Trail.
