GENERAL INFORMATION


THE PROPERTY


This is a very rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a historic building located on a substantial 0.33 (approx) of an acre plot. Positioned on the outskirts of the grounds of Elvaston Castle. Originally built by Countess Harrington in 1862 and featuring an impressive plaque on the front elevation stating 'Refuge for the aged poor'. Originally built as flats for the old retainers of Elvaston Castle, more recently used as a nursing home and currently a fine family home. The property has beautiful front and rear elevations, constructed of brick with stone dressings including stone sills and mullions, as well as two beautiful square bay windows to the front elevation which also bears the Harrington coat of arms in a moulded stone surround.


The property is well screened from the road behind mixed hedging and mature trees, surrounded by lawn sections and features private block paved courtyard, extensive gravelled driveway accessed by wrought iron gates.


Internally the accommodation is highly versatile, spacious and well proportioned with an impressive entrance hall which is completely open from front to rear featuring staircase to first floor. The accommodation is gas centrally heated and comprises lounge, formal dining room, reading room with kitchenette off, ground floor w.c., inner lobby/ utility with secondary staircase to first floor, light and airy breakfast kitchen. The first floor landing leads to master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, bedroom two with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms, study/ occasional bedroom and bathroom. To the second floor there is a sixth bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, study/ occasional bedroom and separate shower room.


Potential annexed accommodation incorporating lounge with potential breakfast kitchen off. These two rooms along with the neighbouring bedroom could form ancillary accommodation for a dependant relative/ au pair/ lodger.


Outside, as previously mentioned a true feature of the sale is the well established private plot on which the property stands measuring just on 0.33 of an acre. The property provides ease of access on foot to beautiful Elvaston Castle, lake and woodland. The garden itself incorporates lawn sections surrounding the property, mature hedging, private courtyard ideal for outdoor dining, timber garage and gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking.
