Sheldon House is set back from the road with a driveway to the right passing Sheldon Barn and leading to an area of off road parking and the garage.
Ground floor: The oak front door opens into the entrance hall. On the left is the dual aspect drawing room with stone fireplace and inset wood burning stove and a door opening onto the sitting terraced area and rear garden. To the right of the hall is the dining room which is again dual aspect. An inner hall has a trap door down to a small cellar and a cloakroom/boiler room off. The rear hallway has a staircase with under stairs storage and doors opening onto the driveway with Sheldon Barn and the garage opposite and to the terraced sitting area. The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the house is of excellent proportions and features a full range of Churchwood wall and base units with granite work surfaces incorporating a twin Belfast sink unit and a range of appliances including a two oven LPG fired AGA with companion electric oven with LPG gas hob. The floors through the kitchen, cloakroom and hallways are laid with Italian ceramic tiles.
First floor: To the rear are two excellent double bedrooms each with en suite shower room which our clients have used as very successful B&B rooms in the past, they are accessed from the rear hall via a separate staircase offering privacy to the main house. At the front of the house is a good sized double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a second double bedroom with en suite shower room and a further potential bedroom currently in use as a large linen room.
Second floor: This whole floor is given over to the wonderful master bedroom suite and comprises a large dual aspect master bedroom (formerly two bedrooms), a good sized walk-in wardrobe, a sitting/dressing room and a spacious shower room with full suite.
Rebuilt in the late 1900s and developed to now comprise a large garage, workshop, utility and office together with a well-presented, self-contained two bedroom first floor flat which offers flexible accommodation for a dependant relative, guests or teenagers or as a source of potential income through holiday letting or long term letting. There are a wide variety of possibilities for an incoming purchaser.
Ground floor: Utility/boot room with office off, a good sized workshop with wall mounted Alpha boiler and fitted workbench. A door from here leads through to the garage with electric up and over door and a separate side door. This floor would lend itself well to conversion into further accommodation (subject to planning consent) or would be ideal for the self-employed/small businesses.
First floor: Stairs lead up to a landing giving access to all the accommodation, to the left is the light and airy sitting/dining room with lovely views over the surrounding countryside and adjacent kitchen well fitted with a range of wall and base units and appliances including an Amica electric cooker and hob and a Beko fridge. At the other end of the landing is a twin bedroom with en suite bath room, a double bedroom and separate bathroom.
Outside: There is a good area of off road parking laid to tarmac to the front and rear, offering ample parking for the house and barn alike. To the side and rear of the main house is a charming private area of garden, a further garden is situated beyond the parking area with lawn, a greenhouse and borders flanked by trees all of which overlook open countryside. There is also a separate log store.
Sheldon House and Barn offer an incoming purchaser the opportunity of gaining a significant additional income if required as both the house and barn apartment have been successfully run as B&B and holiday accommodation for many years with a loyal following of repeat business as well as attracting new bookings from those seeking excellent walks straight from the door and onto the Limestone Way close by. There are various outdoor activities available nearby including cycling, climbing, riding, golf and places of cultural interest including Arbor Low stone circle, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the spa town of Buxton with its famous crescent and Opera House. Sheldon Barn apartment now has full residential planning permission making it a fantastic space for those wanting to carry on with holiday lettings, or alternatively it lends itself well to long term lettings for a regular monthly income.
