Derbyshire Life - - Property -

This splen­did mid-19th cen­tury prop­erty has been lov­ingly cared for over the years to re­tain dis­tinc­tive fea­tures while be­ing adapted to suit mod­ern fam­ily life. As it was ini­tially built for the own­ers of the gyp­sum mine in Fauld, the al­abaster fin­ishes to fire­places and stun­ning mo­saic floor­ing in the re­cep­tion hall are no sur­prise. The hall also has a beau­ti­ful cen­tral stair­case with gal­leried land­ing, wood pan­elling and a stained-glass and a leaded win­dow. The rooms are large and ‘won­der­fully light and bright’, ac­cord­ing to the owner; in to­tal com­pris­ing 7,500 sq ft. A spec­tac­u­lar draw­ing room, with sash and bay win­dows, in­tri­cate plas­ter­work ceil­ing and a log burner, is one of four re­cep­tion rooms – the oth­ers are in use as a for­mal din­ing room, a study and a gym. A rear hall­way, which leads to the gar­dens and ac­cess to an orig­i­nal But­ler’s Pantry – an ideal util­ity room – then leads to the break­fast kitchen in the rear wing. A Small­bone kitchen, it has a more con­tem­po­rary open-plan feel­ing and con­tin­ues into a Snug area fol­lowed by a rear re­cep­tion/ fam­ily room with a mod­ern spi­ral stair­case to the first floor. Up­stairs at the front of the house is an ex­ten­sive Master Suite – cre­ated by the cur­rent own­ers – two large dou­ble bed­rooms, a fam­ily bath­room and an ex­tra WC. A fourth bed­room and WC are in the cen­tre of the home; while en-suite bed­rooms five and six, in the rear wing, are ac­cessed by the spi­ral stair­case.

The prop­erty is set in just over an acre of pri­vate, land­scaped gar­dens.
