Dating from the mid 18th century with early 19th century addition, Bradley Hall is an elegant and spacious residence which was originally conceived as a stable block to a mansion house which was never constructed. The stables were subsequently converted into what is now Bradley Hall itself. There have been recent extensions undertaken with great care and attention to blend with the earlier architecture, creating a period house of great stature, ideal for 21st century living on a grand scale. The current owners have invested in a significant scheme of improvement works which were completed in mid 2013. The works carried out included the installation of a wood pellet fired biomass heating system for the full extent of the residential accommodation. This system generates a significant income through receipt of Renewable Heat Incentive payments. The combination of RHI payments and the income potential from the four apartments ensure that Bradley Hall is an excellent revenue generating property. Due to its extensive gardens and generous parking facilities it could also be used for smaller wedding parties and corporate events also offering the benefits of its accessibility and proximity to the stunning Peak District National Park.
The small village of Bradley is about three miles from the market town of Ashbourne. Bradley Hall is situated on the edge of the village and therefore offers easy access to the A52 which provides a quick link to Derby from where trains to London St Pancras take around 90 minutes. The A38, M1 and M6 are also nearby offering countrywide travel with ease. Bradley is close to the Peak District National Park and thus has access to excellent outdoor pursuits including riding, walking, climbing and cycling to name but a few. The cultural wonders of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the spa town of Buxton as well as many others are all within easy reach.
