An exceptional opportunity to acquire a detached character country property in a stunning rural location with far reaching views, comprising spacious accommodation with seven bedrooms, and internal annexe together with adjoining paddocks and stone outbuildings, all set within circa 5.92 acres (2.40 hectares) providing exclusive countryside living, with an additional 2.36 acres (0.96 hectares) available separately.

The ancestors of the current owners came to Woolley Farm as tenants of the Stubben Edge Estate in the early 1900’s and purchased the property in circa 1911. As such, this is the first time the property has been offered to the market in over 110 years making the opportunity to now acquire it truly unique.

Woolley Farmhouse is situated on the fringe of the peaceful village of Woolley Moor, which offers a range of amenities including a primary school, garden centre, Church/ village hall and public house. The property is ideally located for easy access onto the A61 and the A6 connecting to the nearby towns of Matlock (4.5 miles), Chesterfield (6.0 miles) and Bakewell (10.0 miles). These towns offer a wide range of amenities and facilities including supermarkets, high street shops, restaurants and secondary schools. The area is renowned for its beauty and offers many local walks, trails, outdoor activities and beauty spots, such as Ogston Reservoir which offers bird watching, fishing and sailing.

From Matlock town centre, head south on the A615. Continue along that road for approximately 2.0 miles, passing through the village of Tansley before turning left just after the garden centre on to the B6014. Continue for circa 2.65 miles passing through the village of Ashover Hay and proceed past Ogston Reservoir on your right before taking a left turn on to Badger Lane, signposted for Woolley Moor. Follow the road for approximately 400 yards and the property can be seen located on the left, indicated by our ‘For Sale’ board.
