The original cottage is thought to date back to 1700, the farmhouse created in the 1830's and the shooting lodge added around 1900. The current owners have lived in the property since 1976 and having brought up a family in this beautiful setting, are now ready to move onto pastures new. The long barn is ripe for conversion to ancillary use to the main dwelling, or as holiday lets subject to the necessary planning consents. The property requires general modernisation and upgrading, but retains immense charm and character, has many appealing features, benefits from oil fired and lpg heating and would make an ideal Equestrian unit, the substantial cattle byre which could create an indoor ménage or school, three stables and double car port. The property stands in pretty gardens which include a double garage and separate driveway access, and has magnificent views across moorland towards Strines in the distance. The property sits in the Peak District National Park and whilst occupying an extremely private and secluded location, is within a 15 minute drive of the outskirts of Sheffield, with the facilities of the city and falls within the catchment of the highly rated Bradfield School and is within a few minutes drive of High and Low Bradfield. No chain involved.
