Wildersley is a very attractive stone built grade II Listed property which requires full renovation and has a wide range of outbuildings offering commercial/residential development opportunity (stpc) with walled gardens and paddock extending to approx. 2 acres set in an idyllic rural location with magnificent countryside views.

Property Description
We are informed by the seller the farmhouse is steeped in history and is known to be one of Belper’s oldest properties and the Queen Mary of Scots is thought to have passed by the property on the old Coach Road. There has been a dwelling in its present style, n the plot of land since Elizabethan times, although a dwelling can be traced back a few hundred years earlier, the land was once part of the Duffield Frith and owned by the De Ferrers of Duffield Castle. Wildersley was a clearing in the wood, used as a place to rest and partake of refreshments during the deer hunt, The beautiful former stone built former farmhouse has extensive character accommodation arranged over three floors and requires a full scheme of improvement and upgrading throughout. Internally the property has been stripped out and in brief comprises entrance hall, generous sized sitting room measuring 27’4” x 17’ with open inglenook fireplace, separate dining room with open inglenook fireplace, staircase to first floor, study, potential kitchen diner (no fitted units), rear lobby and staircase to first floor. To the first floor landing there are several rooms allowing themselves for conversion into a number of bedrooms with bathroom and en-suite subject to usual building regulations. There are also three loft rooms also allowing themselves for further potential conversion subject to usual planning consents. Outside to the front of the property there are beautiful landscaped gardens with magnificent countryside views enjoying a southerly aspect. The property is approached via a single track through some beautiful open countryside with gated access leading to the property where there is an extensive range of mainly stone built outbuildings comprising a former pig shed, a stone built garage with adjoining sun room and store room. There is a further stone built single storey former barn/stabling, a separate former shire house stables which is one and a half storey, and to the rear of that there is a dilapidated stone barn with lapsed planning permission (AVA/2005/0056 for further ancillary and holiday accommodation). Located to the rear of the old dilapidated building is an old block built hay barn which measures approximately 70’ x 15’. Please note there is a further three bedroomed dwelling that the owners have lived in for a number of years however we are informed there is no residential planning been approved and prospective buyers would be advised to make their own enquiries. Properties of this character and potential rarely come to the market and in our opinion would allow itself for a number of different uses including to run as a small business i.e. kennels, cattery, potential bed & breakfast, conversion into further residential units, these all subject to the approval of planning permission and building regulations. We would strongly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate the wide range of outbuildings on offer, the stunning former farmhouse and the beautiful rural setting.
