A striking Grade II-listed period house in Derbyshire, being marketed by our residential agency team with a guide price of £1,000,000, was the third most viewed home in the whole of the UK on Rightmove in April.
Kings Newton Hall, an imposing nine-bed property based on the edge of Melbourne, has secured third place in Rightmove’s list of the most viewed homes of the month for April 2024. 
Kings Newton Hall possesses a rich history, and Charles II is believed to have visited the property. It was also once sold to the Coke family, an English aristocratic family headed by the Earl of Leicester, who would then lease it out to many individuals of high respectability. 
Rightmove lists hundreds of thousands of properties across the UK, with the second most viewed property in April being a home in Cornwall and the first being a house in Glasgow. 
Alasdair Dunne, Head of Residential and Rural Agency, said: “It isn’t very often that a property like this comes along, so it is no surprise that it has caught the eye of those on Rightmove. 
“Kings Newton Hall is a very impressive Grade II-listed Hall dating from the 16th century. It was heavily restored in 1900 and updated in 1980 but is still in possession of many wonderful period features. 
“Whilst it is a property requiring refurbishment works, the renovation programme would be focused on the steady restoration of period features and celebrating the grandly proportioned rooms and beautiful architecture. 
“There is a wonderful central reception hall and staircase designed for making a grand entrance, and the property stands in delightful mature gardens with formal areas and woodland paths.”
