A splendid and authentic Grade II Listed detached farmhouse, complete with an adjoining one-bedroom cottage, set on 4.02 acres of land offering stunning Derbyshire views.

BENNET SAMWAYS is thrilled to present this splendid and authentic Grade II Listed detached farmhouse, complete with an adjoining one-bedroom cottage, set on 4.02 acres of land offering stunning Derbyshire views. Nestled in the rural area of Snelston Common, this property is conveniently located near Ashbourne and the A50, providing excellent commuting links to the M1 and M6 motorways. This charming home is rich in character, featuring tasteful decor throughout, expansive gardens, a private gated driveway, a large rear paddock, and multiple substantial storage buildings, including a double garage. The main farmhouse boasts a gross internal area of 2,750sq.ft., while Barleycote Cottage offers 700sq.ft. of living space.

Interior - The original reception hall, while no longer used as the main entrance, leads to a more practical rear lobby with direct access to the utility/boot room. Adjacent to the utility room is a home office, ideal for those with flexible work-from-home arrangements. The farmhouse kitchen is well-equipped with base and wall-mounted units, solid marble countertops, and features an Aga for hot water and cooking, supplemented by an electric induction hob and oven. Additional kitchen amenities include a fridge freezer, dishwasher, limestone effect flooring, beamed ceilings, and a walk-in pantry. A distinctive feature is an exposed well with a glazed cover. The dining room showcases a brick fireplace and beamed ceilings. A reception room off the hall, with its own fireplace and beamed ceilings, can extend the hall space, leading to a rear lobby with a guest cloakroom. Double doors open into an impressive 'L' shaped drawing room with a feature fireplace and beamed ceiling, perfect for entertaining.
The first floor features a spacious landing with a dressing room to the right, equipped with fitted wardrobes, cupboards, and drawers. The master bedroom is generously sized with a recently refurbished luxury ensuite shower room, complete with an illuminated mirror and skylight. Another bedroom with fitted wardrobes and the main family bathroom are also on this floor. The second floor offers a bright and airy landing with exposed beams, flanked by two bedrooms.

Barleycote Cottage - Situated off the rear courtyard, Barleycote Cottage is ideal for dependent relatives or as a holiday let or Airbnb with appropriate planning permission. The single-story accommodation includes a modern fitted breakfast kitchen with appliances, an impressive sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed purlins, and a brick fireplace. The bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe, and the bathroom, which requires modernisation.

Exterior - The property is approached via a gated driveway leading to the main parking area within a paved courtyard. The double detached garage includes an upper room suitable for a hobby space or home office. Additional large storage buildings and a beautifully situated summer house overlooking the paddock offer an excellent spot for relaxing on summer evenings. The expansive gardens include a hidden vegetable garden behind a mature beech hedge and an impressive greenhouse. A tree-lined driveway provides an alternative main approach, enhancing the property's opulent feel. The grounds, including a large paddock, total 4.02 acres.

Locality - Nearby, Snelston village is an attractive small estate village, located 3 miles southwest of Ashbourne. Snelston is built around the Gothic style Hall. Old Queen Farm is located not too far from the popular Norbury C of E Primary School, and within a few miles there a number of private schools - Abbotsholme School and Denstone College.

Owner's perspective - "Old Queen Farm is an idyllic farm house set in a beautiful backdrop with far reaching views of some the Peak District national parks most iconic scenery. Looking out through fields dotted with oak trees across the weaver hills, Thorpe cloud and Dovedale, the vista from the ample gardens and land is stunning. A short walk down the footpath at the end of the garden leads to the chocolate box hamlet of Snelston. A beautiful walk on a sunny day that myself and my family enjoy regularly. The property its self is set in sumptuous gardens with lovely lawns and a large and well tended vegetable garden, complete with a sizeable, Victorian style, greenhouse. Inside; the house the rooms are large and welcoming, with a few hidden features to surprise guests. The annex is surprisingly large and yet cosy at the same time and would make a great holiday let. It has served us as an office for our business and the previous owners as a dependency unit which demonstrates its versatility. There is storage in abundance with the connecting barn and office and the room above the double garage. It has been a wonderful and unique place to live, raise children and entertain guests and will forever hold a special place in our hearts."
