St John’s Farm is situated within the village of Woodthorpe. The village has a basic range of facilities including a primary school and the Albert’s Inn public house. A more comprehensive range is in the nearby market towns of Staveley (1.4 miles), Chesterfield (6.5 miles) and Worksop (10 miles) including supermarkets, high street shops, restaurants and secondary schools. There are many nearby local walks and bridleways for those who enjoy the outdoors. The property has a semi-rural setting, however benefits from excellent access onto main roads leading to the M1 motorway at junction 30 and the A619 and A61 providing quick access into the city of Sheffield being 15 miles away. The property is located for quick access to Chesterfield and Sheffield Train Stations for those commuting by train.
From junction 30 on the M1 motorway, take the A616 road towards Barlborough. At the first roundabout, take the fourth exit onto the A619 Worksop Road towards Mastin Moor. At the first set of cross roads with traffic lights, turn left onto B6419 Bolsover Road. Proceed along the road for a short distance and take the first right hand turning onto Woodthorpe Road. Follow the road into the village of Woodthorpe, past the Albert Inn public house and then turn left onto Bridle Road, and the property will be found on the left hand side.
We understand from the vendors that the house originally dates back to the early 19th Century. The property has been occupied by the vendor’s family for nearly 60 years and has been substantially modernised during this time. The property has not been on the market for some time and similar opportunities are few and far between.
St John’s Farm offers a wonderful opportunity to purchase a detached property overlooking the generous garden, all situated in a semi-rural location with the benefit of having outbuildings and land.
