Newton House is situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Newton Solney in South Derbyshire near Repton. This delightful conservation village can trace its history back to the 10th Century and there are a number of notable houses with fine architecture.
The village offers a very good range of amenities including a school, a shop, a 12th Century church, a village hall, a recreational field, two pubs and a hotel with conference facilities. The village is
notable for its strong community spirit and has been voted best kept village in Derbyshire on a number of occasions. The historical village of Repton is just over a mile away and offers
an excellent range of amenities and a useful range of shops. Repton is home to one of Britain's oldest and finest public schools, founded in 1557. In addition, other notable schools in the area are Foremarke Hall Preparatory School, Denstone College, Derby Grammar School and Derby High school. Road communication links in the area are excellent with Birmingham, Leicester, Derby and Nottingham all within commuting distance. Rail links and East Midlands Airport are also within easy reach.
Newton House is a hugely impressive property in very special gardens and grounds. This outstanding home displays a wealth of delightful architectural features and has mellow brick elevations under tiled roofs. The property offers generously proportioned and particularly versatile living accommodation over two floors, together with a section that can be divided off from the main accommodation to create an independent annexe. In total the accommodation, including the extensive cellars, runs to about 7448 sqft.
The Barn is wonderfully light and airy and is of unique character and size. Of note, is the fine joinery, including handmade oak doors with bespoke ironmongery, and superb exposed beams. Newton House stands in truly exceptional grounds and gardens extending to about 3.28 acres.
An entrance porch with double doors and limestone flooring leads to a wonderful full height reception hall with an open fireplace and wood burning stove. High arched windows overlooking the stunning gardens are a superb feature. A wide flight of stairs leads up to the first floor galleried landing with a trussed beam ceiling. French doors open out to a walled terrace with a display of topiary and a cobbled pathway leading to the magnificent gardens. Off the hall, there is a cloakroom and a utility room. The hallway continues past the study, with French doors out to the gardens, and on to the spectacular living kitchen/breakfast room. This is a fabulous room with a full range of painted Shaker style units, incorporating high quality Miele and Gaggenau appliances and surmounted by quartz work surfaces. A superior island unit with part wooden and part quartz tops, incorporates an induction
hob and a breakfast bar. Adjacent to the kitchen area is a spacious breakfast/sitting area with double doors to the rear gardens and an enclosed porch which provides access to the extensive cellars (extending to about 1700 sq ft). Beyond the kitchen there is a lovely day room and a hallway which leads through to an attractive bedroom with french doors and an en suite bathroom, a further bedroom with dressing area and bathroom. This area has its own access to the front of the property and would be suitable for separation from the main house to create an independent annexe if required. To the south east of the reception hall is a fabulous dining room
which has doors opening to an enclosed garden. Exposed king trusses, exposed brickwork and an open fireplace with wood burner are fantastic features. Beyond the dining room is another
impressive sitting room, again having exposed king trusses an attractive timber clad pitched ceiling. There is a useful adjoining bathroom and two pairs of fench doors opening out to the
enclosed garden area. Off the sitting room there are two charming double bedrooms, each with its own en suite and access to an enclosed side terrace. The wonderful first floor galleried landing has a stripped timber floor and exposed roof timbers. The master suite has a dressing room and en suite bathroom with walk-in shower/wet room; there are two further bedrooms with exposed ceiling timbers, a family bathroom and a study/library with an adjoining balcony overlooking the front gardens and beautiful countryside beyond.
Grounds and gardens
Newton House is as impressive on the outside as it is internally, with tarmac drive to the front, edged with lawns and estate fencing lead to an electric five bar gate, which opens to the generous gravelled parking area. Good levels of privacy are gained via the mature range of shrubs and hedges which enclose the lawn. The principle gardens to the rear take in a south westerly aspect and extend to circa 3.28 acres, being mainly laid to level lawn and are immaculately presented. Pathways weave through the grounds to a central circular lavender garden and trimmed
hedges allow natural breaks and areas of privacy. To the head of the garden is a wooded area and small paddock, together with a "secret garden", having the most charming pond and viewing
gazebo with deck. There are further areas of intrigue to explore and wonder, with a deep patio immediately to the rear of the property and a delightful walled garden opening to an enclosed block paved courtyard, which allows access to the spacious detached outbuilding/barn, with twin door access. To the eastern side of the property, solid timber gates allow vehicular access from the front to the rear, together with a substantial hardstanding area.
