The Old Stables is one of eight privately owned homes in a co-housing community in this beautiful valley within rural Derbyshire. All of the buildings are Grade II listed with a rich heritage. The owners share 21 acres of land which is managed primarily for nature conservation and increasing bio-diversity on a Nature England Environment Stewardship Scheme. Eco-friendly communal services include a reed bed water drainage system and a central wood chip boiler for communal central heating and domestic hot water. There are also shared outbuilding available for storage, workshop space, community meetings and social events.

The land predominantly comprises a park-like setting bounded by the Henmore Brook and within which lies the Atlow Moat which is an ancient monument together with an additional area of ancient woodland, small pasture, orchards and allotment gardens providing endless opportunities for self sufficiency.

Sellers Insight
"In the time we have lived at EarthHeart we have been enriched by the experience and the diverse community living here. Being part of a co-operative and becoming co-directors alongside everyone else is unusual and you may be initially cautious to explore further as we were, however, everyone gets on with their own lives in the same way as living anywhere else, the only difference being we share the use and management of community buildings and 21 acres of land in an incredibly beautiful environment. This green valley includes fields, pasture land, gardens, ponds, woodland, a willow labyrinth, allotments, outbuildings, an orchard, and those incredible valley views especially at sunrise and sunset.
Living in close proximity to wildlife and the land encourages an ecological focus for the whole community keen to promote and support biodiversity and sustainability. It is a fascinating and protected place to live, as anyone who visits will tell you, it is a beautiful and peaceful place. We have loved the richness of the landscape and the diverse ecology that reveals itself through the seasons. There’s always plenty to do outside whether it be forestry, gardening, growing your own food, beekeeping, looking after the chicken & ducks or just walking around the estate. The enjoyable and sociable monthly work days (with "bring and share" lunch ) draw the community together as a team to tackle the essential and seasonal maintenance tasks that keep Atlow Moat estate in fine fettle. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and your belly full!"
