About Property

A substantial village house with equestrian facilities, set within about 3.17 acres.

Pinfold Croft is situated on the edge of the delightful rural village of Stanley, amidst picturesque Derbyshire countryside and yet the city of Derby is just 6 miles away. There is a primary school in the village, together with St Andrew's Church, a local shop, post office, public house, and a village hall. The surrounding area offers lots of opportunities for country walks, cycling and horse riding, whilst Breadsall Priory Hotel and Country Club has a championship and a moorland golf course, with further courses at Horsley Lodge and Morley Hayes.

Secondary schools serving the area are Da Vinci Academy in Breadsall and Lees Brook Community School in Chaddesden. Private education is available within a few miles at Morley Hall Preparatory School and Ockbrook School. There are many other renowned private schools within driving distance, including Repton, Foremark Hall and Derby High School.

There are very good road links in the area. The A52, A38 and M1 are easily accessible. East Midlands Airport is about 17 miles away and there is a mainline train station at Derby.

Pinfold Croft is delightful detached village house, which was constructed in 1932. Over the past couple of years the current owners have carried out a substantial modernisation and extension programme on the property to create spacious family accommodation. The high standard of workmanship is particularly evident in the fabulous open plan reception room which spans the depth of the house and links the property to the old village hall. The property sits within 3.17 acres, including formal rear gardens, a stable yard and paddock land.

Pinfold Croft is presented to a high specification throughout, whilst retaining many original features and character of the house. The front door has an attractive stained glass window and opens into a small enclosed porch entrance and on to the reception hallway, which has a wooden floor, under stairs cupboard and the original 1930's staircase rising to the first floor.

The open plan reception room is a fabulous space for entertaining. This l-shaped room is extremely spacious and incorporates a reading/music area, sitting area and dining room. The ceilings are predominantly full height and ample light enters the room via two front windows, one being a square bay with window seats, and bi-fold doors in the dining area provide access to the rear patio area and gardens. Adjoining this room is a games room, which was once Stanley Village Hall. The Hall is of timber construction with the benefit of central heating and could be converted to provide additional living accommodation if required, and subject to any necessary consents. There is a second sitting room/dining room which has wheelchair access and is currently utilised by the current owners as a bedroom; it has a wonderful fireplace with ceramic tiling and ornate wooden surround, and a square bay window. Adjoining this room is a wet room with wood effect tiled floor and underfloor heating, making it ideal as a guest suite.

An inner hallway with WC leads through to a well appointed breakfast kitchen with a spacious dining area which has stairs rising to a large hobby room and adjoining study area, having a superb full height gable window providing fantastic views over the paddock and surrounding countryside. The high quality kitchen was made by Osbornes of Ilkeston and has a good range of Shaker style units surmounted by both granite and wooden work surfaces. Appliances include a four oven Aga, Neff electric oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Adjoining the kitchen is a large utility room which has a lantern ceiling and a full range of contemporary high gloss units incorporating a dishwasher. Doors lead out to a useful boot room and cloakroom and to a large garage with workshop area, electric up and over doors and wide rear door providing mower access.

On the first floor there is a spacious landing area and three double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large picture window at the front with countryside views, a built-in walk-in wardrobe and an en suite wet room. A generous family bathroom and separate W.C completes the first floor. From the landing the stairs rise to the second floor, which has two further bedrooms, with rural views, one having an extensive walk-in attic store, and a modern wet room.

The property is approached via a wide block paved driveway which leads to an extensive car parking area. Hedging and shrubs along the roadside provide privacy from the road. Steps lead up to a small paddock area which has a gate for vehicle access into the stable yard and larger paddocks. The l-shaped timber stable block comprises four loose boxes, a tack room and a hay store. The grazing land extends to approximately 2.50 acres.

Planning consent has been granted for a further extension to the rear of the property to provide additional living accommodation if required, and we are informed that foundations are already in place for this work. Planning Ref: ERE114/0032. For further details please contact Fisher German on .
