This attractive rural village of Edlaston is situated just south of Ashbourne off the A515 in the much sought after Golden Triangle and Church Farm is located on rising ground approached via a farm track and enjoys views over adjacent farmland.

This wonderful property offers an impressive family home with equestrian potential, together with the ability to generate an income from the holiday cottages or accommodate an extended family.

The property is approached to the side from the driveway area with a half glazed door leading into the hallway having tiled floor with timber wainscoting. There is a utility room having appliance spaces, plumbing for an automatic washing machine, tiled flooring, WC and wash hand basin.

From the hall, a door leads directly into the impressive farmhouse style kitchen which has tiled floor and wonderful exposed beams together with the oil fired aga. There is a range of farmhouse style timber base and wall cupboards surmounted by worktops with an inset one and half bowl sink and mixer tap having tiled splashback, further appliance spaces with plumbing for a dishwasher and a slot-in electric double oven cooker, together with glazed French doors opening to a side patio. A wide opening leads directly into the kitchen living room which has fabulous inglenook style fireplace having timber mantle over of some age and inset brick fireplace housing a decorative period cast iron range (not working). There is a cupboard to the side housing the oil fired boiler, access to brick cellar and door leading to the enclosed back staircase. A small lobby has a door opening to the side courtyard.

There is a spacious further living room, again with fabulous exposed beams and woodwork and an impressive large Derbyshire stone fireplace with large inset log burner on hearth and cupboard to the side. There is a decorative half glazed door leading to the front porch having windows either side and wonderful brick thralls forming a seating area, together with study space and stairs off to the first floor.

To the rear is a very impressive large snooker/games room or family room having a period marble fireplace with bookshelves to recess, dual aspect windows and French doors opening to the garden. The full sized billiard table is available by negotiation.

On the first floor there is a landing having a tiled shower enclosure and an adjacent bathroom having bath in tiled surround with shower over and glazed screen, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. Adjacent to this is a double bedroom which houses the airing cupboard and also having the back stairs leading back down to the ground floor.

Off the landing, stairs ascend to an attic room which has a Velux roof light and was converted some 20-25 years ago which can be used as a study or occasional bedroom as required.

The property is approached via a farm drive off the road with right of way in favour of other users. The property sits in its own gardens with zoned patio areas which serve the house, together with separate gardens to the two attached holiday cottages. Details of the holiday cottages can be found on and each of these has been let very successfully on an ongoing holiday basis but would equally serve to accommodate an extended family or relatives.

To the rear of the property, a gate leads into an extensive parking and manoeuvring area serving both the farmhouse and the adjacent holiday cottages, flanked by lawn areas. A field gate leads into the paddock and small orchard area which has fruit, apple and damson trees and extends to approximately 1 acre of fenced paddocks, with a hard base for the erection of a stable if desired. There are also an additional 2 acre available by separate negotiation.

There are two holiday cottages – Orchard Cottage and Church Farm Cottage. These are both independent holiday cottages attached to the farmhouse at the rear and both have electric heating whilst Orchard Cottage also has a log burner and Church Farm Cottage enjoys an open fire. Both have private areas of garden to the rear plus parking and have proven very popular with guests.
