The property is situated off Chesterfield Road in the locality of Oakerthorpe, a village that sits approximately 1.7 miles west of Alfreton Town centre.

Furthermore, access to the picturesque Peak District National Park is just a short distance away, with Bakewell being 13.3 miles north west.

Heading north from Derby on the A38 towards the M1 junction 28, after the junction for Ripley, take the next exit for Alfreton. At the roundabout take the first exit on to the A61 and keep left on to Eachwell Lane. At the mini-roundabout take the first exit on to the A615 Wingfield Road and continue approximately 1.1 miles to the traffic lights, keeping to the right. Continue taking a right hand turn and continue up the short hill for about 500ft and the property can be seen on the left hand side indicated by our ‘For Sale’ board.

The site, formerly a working farm includes a range of buildings and the farmhouse. As per the approved consent, in addition to the six new dwellings the farmhouse is retained for renovation.
