BRIEF DESCRIPTION AND GENERAL REMARKS
Closes Farm occupies a delightful rural location just to the south of Carsington Water and about 5 miles from the market town of Ashbourne, which offers an excellent range of amenities. The nearby village of Hulland Ward offers the usual village facilities, including a local shop and garage. Road connections are excellent and for those needing to commute, many midland towns and cities are within easy reach. Railway connections are available at Belper and Derby, with international airports at East Midlands, Birmingham and Manchester, all within about 1â€”1 1/2 hours travelling time.
Educational facilities are well catered for with Queen Elizabethâ€™s Grammar School in Ashbourne and independent schools of Abbotsholme, Denstone College, Derby Grammar and Repton, all within 20 miles.
Closes Farm is set in the most delightful south facing private location and offers tremendous business opportunities. Originally a diary farm, the present owner has concentrated on developing the equestrian enterprises using "Best Equest" internal stable fittings and it now affords a wonderful opportunity for anyone keen on breeding horses, livery or trekking holidays, bearing in mind the proximity to Carsington Water, with its excellent circular bridleway linking with other paths and public highways.
The stone barn adjoining the farmhouse has been refurbished structurally and lends itself ideally for conversion into additional living accommodation and any conversion work can incorporate the attractive old brick walls and fine exposed beams and roof timbers. The land is all down to grass and divided into convenient sized paddocks, many with water troughs and there is also an excellent road through the centre of the farm with a hoof friendly surface. This has been constructed to the same standard as the hacking ring/circular gallop to which it connects at the eastern end of the farm and this provides an excellent all weather training area for the horses. The land on either side of this track is open and has been used for grass conservation but could easily be fenced and used for grazing purposed if required.
This property offers huge potential and inspection is a must for anybody looking for a farm, business premises or development opportunity in the locality. Please note that prospective purchasers must make their own enquiries as to whether planning permission would be required for any works.
