Mount Farm is situated in a wonderful position about half a mile north of the village of Marston Montgomery and enjoys far reaching views over undulating Derbyshire countryside to the south. Facilities in Marston Montgomery include a primary school, St Giles’ Church, and The Crown Inn. The village lies approximately 6 miles south of the market town of Ashbourne, and about 15 miles west of Derby.

The area is popular for many leisure pursuits including walking, horse riding and cycling, with a range of footpaths and bridleways around Marston Montgomery. Water sports can be enjoyed at Carsington Water and the edge of the Peak District National Park, with its renowned scenery, is approximately 11 miles distant.

Despite its rural location there are good transport links via the A38, A50 and A512 Derby to Nottingham Road, providing access to the M1 and M6 motorways. Rail services are available at Derby with fast links to Birmingham and London St Pancreas Station. There are a number of renowned schools in the area including Denstone College, the JCB Academy, Abbotsholme, Repton School, Repton Prep, Derby High School and Derby Grammar School.

Mount Farm includes a charming period farmhouse, approached via a long tree-lined driveway, and standing in a commanding position with far reaching views to the south.

There is a good range of traditional buildings, some of which are attached to the house, and which may provide scope to be put to a variety of uses, subject to the necessary consents; two modern farm buildings also provide stock housing and general storage but also provide scope for other uses. The property includes about 20.05 acres of grazing land plus a number of spinneys, including a range of specimen trees, and extends to approximately 23.63 acres in all.

The Accommodation
The front door leads into a reception lobby area and then into a dining hallway with views to the south and an oak floor. The adjoining living-dining kitchen extends to an impressive 8.48m x 6.60m and includes a bay window with seating, a range of fitted units with a Rangemaster cooker, Karndean flooring, a woodburner, and a tiled pantry. Off the kitchen is a utility room-cum-boot room with a boiler room and space for a washing machine and tumble drier. An adjoining rear hallway provides access to the courtyard and attached traditional building.

The sitting room is well proportioned and includes a fireplace with woodburner and a bay window with seating and wonderful views to the south. A door leads into an oak framed garden room with woodburner and door leading to the garden.

The first floor accommodation includes a master bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite shower room, and benefits from great views to the south. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and one with exposed ceiling timbers. There is a family bathroom with a shower.

A long tree-lined tarmac driveway leads off Roston Common and splits by the house with a spur leading to the modern farm buildings and a second spur leading through an archway into an attractive courtyard of traditional buildings adjoining the house. The buildings currently provide general storage, open fronted garaging, a home office, kennelling, and workshop space but present exciting potential to be converted to a range of uses. These uses could include secondary accommodation for guests, dependant relatives, or let accommodation, further office space, a leisure wing, stabling, or a base for a business. This would be subject to obtaining the necessary consents. In all the traditional buildings extend to about 4,000 sq. ft GIA.

A second yard to the north of the traditional buildings provides access to two modern farm buildings:

Livestock barn - Galvanised steel portal frame, concrete floor, concrete panel lower walls, profile metal sheet upper walls. About 2,370 sq. ft GIA.

General storage/livestock barn - Steel frame, concrete floor, concrete panel lower walls in part, space board upper walls. About 576 sq. ft GIA.

Further buildings include a summer house, storage shed of timber framed construction, and a green house.

Gardens and Land
Mount Farm includes a limited area of formal gardens with the tree lined driveway flanked by lawned areas. The farm includes three spinneys extending to about 1.5 acres in total and are a lovely feature of the property. Tree species include Oak, Beech, Wild Cherry, Silver Birch, Mountain Ash, Hazel and Field Maple. Adjoining the eastern spinney is a large, spring fed pond of about 65 metres in length which has an island.

The farm includes about 20.05 acres of grazing land divided into a number of enclosures by a mix of hedges and fences. The land drops away from the house and runs down to Marston Brook on the southern boundary, with portions of the brook included in the ownership of Mount Farm.

PV Panels
A range of solar panels were installed in 2011 and we believe the contract runs until 24/11/2036, and have generated a payment which has averaged £2,200 per annum over the past five years. This is in addition to the cost saving from electricity consumed at the property that has been generated by these panels.

Title and Tenure
The property is split into two titles being DY2334455 and DY440335. The freehold of the property is for sale with vacant possession on completion.
