Bradley Brook Farm is situated on a quiet country lane on the edge of the small rural village of Bradley. Bradley is about 3 miles east of the historic market town of Ashbourne and is located amongst winding lanes in captivating countryside. The village is made up of a small collection of attractive houses and includes All Saints Church and a primary school. A large number of public footpaths run from Bradley across the surrounding countryside. The village is also well located for easy access to the A52 which provides a quick link to Derby, and also to the A38 and M1. Derby Railway Station provides a mainline service to London St Pancras in approximately one and a half hours.
The southern tip of the Peak District National Park is less than 5 miles away providing spectacular walks and a wide range of other sporting activities including cycling, fishing, sailing, and climbing. This beautiful region is home to some of the country's finest stately homes, enchanting market towns and picturesque villages. Local attractions include the beautiful valley of Dove Dale, Alton Towers, and Carsington Water. The village has a primary school, whilst secondary schooling is available at the well-regarded Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Ashbourne. There are a number of independent secondary schools within reach, which include Denstone College, Repton School, Trent College, Derby Grammar School and Derby High School.
Bradley Brook Farm is a very attractive three storey double-fronted farmhouse set within delightful gardens and grounds of just under an acre. Since purchasing the property in 2016 the vendors have carried out renovation works to create a beautiful home suitable for a modern family which has some wonderful period features seamlessly blending with contemporary design.
The well-appointed and versatile accommodation extends to about 3595 sq.ft.
The extensive gardens and grounds, including sports pitch, double garaging and ample parking, add to the appeal of Bradley Brook Farm.
Stone semi-circular steps lead up to the double front doors, with windows on either side, opening into the reception hallway, which has an attractive parquet effect tiled floor, half-height wall panelling, and exposed timber posts supporting the staircase which rises to the first floor. Doors lead off to two reception rooms, both located at the front of the house and which have half height wall panelling and sash windows overlooking the front gardens. The sitting room has a brick fireplace and a door into the kitchen. The second sitting room/snug is dual aspect and has a heavily beamed ceiling and exposed polished floorboards. A corner stone fireplace with wood mantle houses a Clearview multi-fuel burner.
From the entrance hall two steps and a latch door lead up to a dining room, which has an original bread oven set within an exposed brick wall and a copper wash; the copper bowl has been lined to serve as a drinks cooler. A door leads out to the rear patio area. This is a lovely light room and a great space for entertaining but could also be used as a home office or boot room if preferred.
The heart of the house is a wonderful, L-shaped living-dining kitchen which offers an extensive space combining cooking, dining and relaxation areas. There is a substantial central island, topped with a timber work surface which has pop-up electric sockets, a breakfast bar at either end and cupboards underneath. A further range of painted timber units with timber work surfaces incorporate an electric Aga, a dishwasher, fridge freezer, combination microwave oven and a Belfast sink with instant hot water tap. Full height cupboards include space for a large fridge freezer with a wine rack above. A door leads through to an entrance lobby/boot room with an external door to the front. Double doors lead out to the rear patio area. An inner hallway
between the kitchen and the dining room connects to a utility room and a shower room. A trap door provides access to the cellar.
On the first floor a wonderful master suite comprises a bedroom with a Victorian fireplace, a heavily beamed ceiling and polished wood floorboards. A door leads through to a large dressing room fully fitted with a range of wardrobes and a dressing table, which
in turns leads through to an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with a high ceiling and exposed brickwork, and the second having an en suite shower room. A luxury bathroom includes an oversized inset bath, separate shower, and WC, plus an inset wall-mounted TV.
Stairs continue to the second floor, with a useful storage cupboard within the eaves and a spacious landing area. There are two generous double bedrooms and a 6th bedroom/nursery/ dressing room, which has potential be converted to create a potential en suite if required (subject to any necessary consents and regulations).
Please note - the chimney and fireplace in the sitting room are not currently operational.
Gardens and grounds
Bradley Brook Farm is approached via a pair of automated timber gates leading to a tarmacadam driveway with car standing space for several vehicles. A sweeping gravelled driveway continues to a further parking area beside the brick-built double garage. The garage also has a log store area. Attached to the garage is a useful workshop space which is accessible from the patio, close to the kitchen door.
Both front and rear gardens are extensive. The front gardens are south-facing and have a couple of delightful gravelled seating areas adjacent to the house, one having a charming pergola and a stone table and seats. The gardens are on three levels and are predominantly lawned, supported by gabion basket stone walls, interspersed with mature trees and herbaceous borders. There is an enclosed all-weather sports pitch (circa 22m x 14m), suitable for football, basketball or tennis, together with a useful timber shed. There is a second double access gate at the front of the property near to the sports pitch.
At the side of the house a gate leads through to the rear gardens which are fully enclosed. A wide flagstone patio area on two levels is ideal for outdoor entertaining. A retaining stone wall with steps leads up to an extensive raised lawn area, being fully enclosed and overlooking paddock land. Both front and rear gardens have outdoor electricity points. The lawns have been set up to be mown by a robot mower which is available by separate negotiation.
