Full description

A dramatic industrial conversion creating a much loved family home – on the market for the first time in its history. Redhill sits on a country lane, alongside a riding school above the village of Tansley. Originally an industrial building, the owners could see the beauty and potential of the site and set about converting it approximately ten years ago. This architect designed contemporary family home is flooded with light from the huge custom made windows.

Where Is Redhill? - Redhill is situated above Tansley, a large village on the southern edge of Derbyshire’s Peak District, two miles east of Matlock.

A riding school for the disabled sits next to our property. This is a lovely family home, with space outside for children to roam freely whilst being only a short drive from all the necessary amenities and being extremely well positioned for national transport hubs and/or commuting destinations.

Commuting Distances: - Sheffield 22 miles, Chesterfield 10 miles, Nottingham 23 miles, Derby 19 miles, East Midlands Airport 32.5 miles. Trains are available from nearby Matlock (a 5 minute drive), leading to the national rail hub at Derby.

A good sized wooden double garage or workshop and log store is positioned beyond the driveway along with a large hardstanding area. To the rear is a narrower fully enclosed stretch of garden, currently accommodating the family’s chickens and rabbits! To the right side of the property is a lawned area, bordered by stock fencing, creating a boundary between Redhill and the riding school and stables next door. The property has an air source heat pump and a covered bore hole which provides water to the property.

A neighbouring barn and small woodland is positioned behind Redhill, whilst mature shrubs and larger trees provide a green backdrop to the magnificent views found to the front of the property looking towards Riber Castle.

A Word From The Owners - Living at Redhill has been everything (and more) that we hoped it would be when we first had the idea of converting the building. We chose a local architect to design our home and worked with a well established builder from the village to complete the conversion. We moved in in 2010, three months after the birth of our youngest daughter. It has been a fantastic place to bring her, and our other two children, up. They have all attended the excellent local primary school and our eldest have moved onto the very well regarded secondary school. We have been able to work locally and further afield thanks to the good location. With family based throughout the UK it has always been important to us to have optimal access to the motorway network.
Our favourite thing about living here are the amazing, ever changing views down the valley. We love the feeling of space around the property with the large windows letting in loads of natural light.

We put a great deal of time and energy into creating what we hope is a flexible, spacious home in which we have made many happy memories.

More About The Area: - Everything one could possibly need can be found just a four minute drive away in nearby bustling spa town Matlock – which has bars, restaurants, independent stores, a lovely park, a Sainsbury’s and M&S Food Hall. Wirksworth, Belper, Bakewell and Ashbourne are all beautiful market towns, two with independent cinemas and are also all within a short driving distance. Chesterfield is a very large town, just ten miles away.

It really is too difficult to list the opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts in this area. There are numerous public footpaths and bridleways, the Derbyshire Dales being a magnet for walkers, riders, cyclists, and of course, watersport enthusiasts, as Carsington Water is a mere 20 minute drive from the house and Ogston Reservoir close by. There is climbing potential, approximately 20 minutes drive away at Black Rocks. Further famous climbing opportunities at Stanage and Burbage ‘Edges’ are only 30 minutes away. The diversity of geology in the countryside of the Park offers every possible escape, from pot holing to hang gliding, from the hills and valleys of limestone in the south or ‘White Peak’ and the granite in the ‘Dark Peak’ of the North.

We are proud that this area is home to some of the best National Trust (eg Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle), and privately owned (eg Chatsworth House Tissington, Kedleston and Haddon Halls) country houses in the country.
