VIDEO VIEWING AVAILABLE. A Grade I listed IMPRESSIVE HISTORIC five bedroom town house located near the town centre of Ashbourne, part of a former school dating back to around 1600.

This Grade I listed historic five-bedroom town house is located in a fantastic position within walking distance of the town centre. The house is part of the original medieval Grammar School which was granted its charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1585. The building was constructed between 1586 and 1604. School Mews was formed from the redevelopment in 1998 of the former school to create three houses, with the advantage of utilities at that time. The current owners purchased the property in 2016 and carried out updating, refitting, flooring, decorations including landscaping and garden.

The accommodation is set over three floors and provides an abundance of character, presented to a high standard throughout. It has a fine drawing room with feature fireplace. There is a separate dining room, adjacent to the large high-ceilinged kitchen which has been modernised with fitted units and granite worktops. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes. The bathroom and shower room have both been refitted. The landscaped garden enjoys views over Ashbourne and St. Oswald’s Church.

Ashbourne is an historic market town known as "The Gateway to the Peak District" due to its convenient location to the Peak District National Park, with easy access to the A50 (9 miles) connecting up to M1 & M6 motorway links. Famous for its annual Royal Shrovetide Football which is played on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Blessed with a vast array of amenities and facilities, this thriving town centre offers a plethora of individual shops. Ashbourne has a popular golf course on the outskirts of the town and the sought-after high school of Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (QEG’s). There is a bus station which helps connect Ashbourne to Derby and Uttoxeter with a number of regular services and nearby train stations at Uttoxeter and Derby.
