Property Description

Set in a STUNNING POSITION with FINE OPEN COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS, this beautiful house has a RANGE OF OUTBUILDINGS plus MANEGE, in all about 19.5 ACRES.
Agnes Meadow Farm is a most attractive property with a beautiful Grade 2 listed farmhouse, stone barn, various outbuildings and nearly 20 acres of land. The property will be of particular appeal to those with equestrian interests or those wishing to run a small holding and live in a beautiful house. Much of the land is in view of the house and mostly lies to the south and west falling gently away to the Kniveton Brook which forms the western boundary.

The house and garden stand in an elevated position, with principal south and west facing elevations. It enjoys long distance views over the rolling countryside of the Kniveton and Henmore Brook valleys, just 2 miles east of the market town of Ashbourne, the gateway of the Peak District, making the location highly convenient with ease of access to shops, schools and other local facilities.

The house has fine period features including stone mullion windows, some with shutters and the main rooms are well sized with beams throughout (although some do restrict head height). The entrance porch, which has a vaulted ceiling and quarry tile floor, can be approached via a garden path or steps from the lower ground level and drive. The drawing room (19' 7" by 16'7") has an exposed pine floor, stone fireplace with log burner and the windows to the south and west provide stunning views over the valley. The dining room (21'6" by 16'4") which can equally be used as a second sitting room, also has a log burner in a large fireplace and this room overlooks the front garden. The farmhouse kitchen and pantry are on the lower ground floor and there are fitted units and a four oven Aga. On the first floor the master bedroom is a particularly generous size (21'5" by 16'7") with south and west facing windows offering lovely views and has a range of built in wardrobes and a stone fireplace with multi fuel stove. There is a large ensuite bathroom with white suite and separate shower cubicle. There are two further south facing bedrooms, a family bathroom with white suite and landing with an airing cupboard. The second floor has 2 further bedrooms and a sitting/dressing area and bathroom making this area ideal for older children or guests.

Outside there are attractive gardens around the house and these include a vegetable garden with raised beds. A pergola with wisteria is well positioned to enjoy the sunny aspect and over looks the land. Adjoining the house is a stone barn with loft, which could provide additional accommodation if required subject to obtaining the usual consents. It has previously had consent for the conversion of the 1st floor into a one bedroom holiday unit. Currently the building provides a workshop, store and stable and storage loft which is accessed by external stairs. There is a basic timber pole lean to machinery store (10.45 x 5.0 metres) to one side.
The stable barn (9.4 x 7.5m overall) has 4 stalls and access passage with light and power and has window openings with part wood cladding over block walls. There is an attached open fronted double garage (6.4 x 5.3m).
The three bay farm barn (13.6 x 9.0 m) has timber cladding on three sides and an open front which can provide space for fodder storage, horsebox (3.75m eaves clearance), machinery and livestock housing.
The manège is approximately 47 x 22 metres shale and plastic surface.
The property extends in total to about 19.5 acres and includes the house, garden, yard and buildings with land separated into 6 main fields. There is a pond and small area of woodland with an area of recent tree planting with a variety of fruit and amenity trees. The Eligible Area for SPS purposes as recorded on the Rural Land Register is 17.5 acres. Please note the Entitlements are not included in the price but are available by negotiation.
For those interested in walking and riding off road there are various rights of way in close proximity to Agnes Meadow Farm which provide circular routes.

Fixtures and Fittings
These are excluded unless specifically mentioned in these details although some may be available by negotiation.

Public rights of way, wayleaves and easements
The property is sold subject to all such matters whether mentioned in these details or not. Please note the footpath crossing the small field and larger field north of the house has been officially diverted and the old route which passed through the farm yard stopped up: this old route may still show on some maps.

From Ashbourne take the A517 towards Belper. After 2 miles at the cross roads turn left onto Corley Lane and continue downhill, over the Henmore Brook and then fork right onto Agnes Meadow Lane. The farm will be found on the left side after ¼ mile where there is a wooden gate between stone walls.

Not required as property is Grade II listed.
