A 5 bedroom house with 11 en suite letting rooms in Riber, Derbyshire set in approximately 2.5 acres.
A unique opportunity to acquire a superb and historic listed building set amongst some of the county’s finest countryside in a picturesque and characterful hamlet.
In addition to the home the former stables, converted about 20 years ago to form eleven en suite bedrooms, are currently used as self catering units but present potential for conversion to holiday cottages or other ancillary use. The Hall is surrounded by approximately 2½ acres of wooded ground including formal gardens and tennis court, all approached by a cobbled driveway.
The front door opens directly into a reception hall with flagstone floor, beamed ceiling and leaded mullions windows. An inner hall from the sitting room leads into a study with beamed ceiling and exposed stonework. Access leads off to a range of cellar accommodation. From the inner hall a flight of steps open to the half landing with access to the principle reception rooms on two levels. The kitchen with quarry tiled floor throughout, fully tiled walls and good natural light from the skylights above leads to the preparation area. A door from this room leads to the outside and walk in store off. There are also ladders that lead down to a useful void that would be ideal for additional storage and further conversion. From the reception hallway some stone steps lead to a rear hall and reception offices both with character features.
From the half landing period stairs with turned oak balustrade leads to the first floor landing. To the first floor are two good sized bedrooms, three further double en suite bedrooms and a well fitted bathroom.
To the front of the Hall, a paved private seating area with original stone steps gives access to the cellar and leads to a private garden with mature borders. Steps lead to a further area of garden with walled and gated access to the drive and with similar interestingly stocked borders and colourful planting.
The cobbled drive which gives vehicular access to the property, leads from Riber Road past a former stable block which now gives high quality bedroom accommodation which the current owners have used as letting apartments. Each room has been superbly appointed with period furniture, en-suite bath or shower rooms and with small kitchenettes. Our client informs us that the income generated from this element of the property is currently in the region of £120,000 per annum. The rooms have been consistently let frequently to large parties for weekends away or family gatherings. The eleven en-suite bedrooms are complemented by a conservatory sitting room, dining room and a range of ancillary storage space.
At the head of the cobbled driveway is an extensive area of level parking, with secondary access to Riber village and with nearby informal woodland with small paddock and surfaced tennis court.
