Lumb House comprises an individual detached residence occupying the most delightful setting extending to 0.65 acres and enjoying magnificent views over the surrounding rolling Derbyshire countryside.

Interestingly it comprised the site of a former stone built cottage which was demolished in the 1960's and the noted local firm of architects (Derek Montague & Associates) was appointed to design the house which is constructed having an external finish in both render and natural random stone beneath a roof of tile. The thoughtfully designed accommodation ensures that all the double glazed windows take full advantage of the views over the gardens and the countryside.

The property is approached via a driveway which culminates in a car parking and turning area and access to an integral garage. The garden really must be seen to be appreciated laid out with extensive sun terraces, gently sweeping lawns, well stocked herbaceous borders and beds and a very large productive kitchen garden.


The charming hamlet of Hazelwood is one of the most sought after locations within this part of Derbyshire approximately 2 miles north of the village of Duffield which provides a varied selection of shops and amenities. Recreational facilities in Duffield include tennis, squash and golf. More extensive facilities are available in the City of Derby approximately 10 miles to the south. There is also a local train service from Duffield to Derby and a further service from Derby to London St Pancras of approximately 95 minutes. Derby's outer ring road provides convenient access to major trunk roads including the A38, A52 and A50 serving the M1, M42 and M6 making the area highly accessible. East Midlands International Airport provides daily flights to Europe.

The famous market town of Ashbourne lies some 10 miles to the west at the foot of the Peak District National Park, Britain's oldest National Park and provides some stunning and beautiful scenery including Dove Dale and Mam Tor. There are a number of excellent local preparatory and private schools in the area including Repton School, Derby High School, Derby Grammar School, Abbotsholme and Trent College. Lumb House is also within the catchment area for the noted Ecclesbourne School at Duffield. Motor sport can be found at Donington Race Circuit, flying at East Midlands International Airport, sailing at Carsington and Foremark Reservoirs, golf at nearby Duffield, Morley Hayes, Breadsall Priory and Mickleover.
