OUT LINE PLANNING APPLIED FOR! Dating back to 1839, Wishfield House is steeped in history, boasting an abundance of character, a property offering such scale & potential and is truly unique, seldom comes to market. This absolute gem could be a real statement residence for the decerning buyer, a fantastic forever-family home, standing proud in its own grounds of almost 1.5 acres of gardens & land to enjoy. Or is this prestigious property your next Company HQ? Centre of Excellence for Training and Learning? Boutique Hotel & Restaurant? Spar & Treatment Centre? A clinic or Veterinary Surgery? …..Etc. etc. So many possibilities. (all would require and would be subject to relevant licensing, regulations, and planning approvals) This is also an amazing opportunity for development and conversion, potentially into multiple dwellings, (subject to planning approval) with its large annex and separate period, detached barn buildings, which could offer excellent returns to an astute investor and developer.

Situated in the desirable and ever-popular Barlborough Village, Wishfield House stands proud in landscaped grounds, accessed from Chesterfield Road, along its own private drive of approximately 50 meters in length, leading to a large, elegant courtyard, both drive and courtyard are laid with attractive stone setts. The courtyard offers parking for many vehicles and access to a large garage and separate store room both situated in the self-contained annex. The Courtyard and annex look onto the beautiful grounds at the side of the main house. From the courtyard, a corridor gives access to the self-contained annex building, another smaller courtyard and the entrance to the kitchen of the main house.

As you enter the main house from the grand front entrance, you will be impressed by the period features, and the grandeur of the original staircase, pause and appreciate the lofty ceilings which run through most of the rooms in the main house! To the left is the formal lounge/family room, with stunning period plaster work which dress the ceiling and walls and feature fireplace, this grand room has a double aspect, with a beautiful bay window, allowing the room to be flooded with natural light. This is the first of three main reception rooms. Opposite this grand room is another dual-aspect living room, again with a bay window and beautiful plaster coving to the ceiling, this living room is equally impressive. A feature open archway leads into the main dining room, another amazing space with paneling, and two large built-in display cupboards and draws for storing crockery and fine tableware.

Leading off from the dining room you enter the large and spacious live-in kitchen which benefits from modern white wall and base units, granite worktops, and a beautiful red AGA cooker. The heart of the home is ample space for dining and lounge seating in this homely kitchen. From the kitchen, there is a good-sized room which is currently used as a utility room and laundry, fitted throughout with traditional style kitchen wall and base units.

Also on the ground floor of the main house, there is another large hallway with double glass doors leading out to the South facing aspect of the house and gardens laid mostly to lawn, with an array of well-established trees, a lovely area to relax, let the children play and the dogs explore! To the left of the hallway is a further room that could be used as a double bedroom, study, or home office. Opposite this room gives access to a separate one-bedroom apartment, ideal for dependent relatives, guests, or as potential rental accommodation. The apartment is well fitted with an open plan kitchen and lounge, and a separate bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. From the hallway, there is access to two cellar storage rooms and a wine store, a very usable space with full-height ceilings and flagstone floors, great potential for a gym or studio.

As we move up the beautiful staircase, take time to appreciate the wooden balustrade, the high ceilings, and period features. On the landing are two large double bedrooms and a family bathroom, fitted with a multi-Jet shower. Along the landing is the master bedroom, a great-sized room with two large windows, a separate dressing room, and a large en-suite, fitted with a traditional style four-piece bathroom suite. At the end of the landing is another good-sized double bedroom which leads to the upstairs access to the Annex building.

The substantial Annex boasts separate two-level accommodation, the ground floor comprises of two good-sized rooms, a kitchen, and a shower room with a separate W.C. Stairs lead up to the Annex's second floor, boasting two large rooms, which have until recently been used as offices, plus 3 further bedrooms! This part of the building and space has so many possibilities for development reconfiguration.

Please! wait there's more! In addition to the amazing main house, the lovely self-contained apartment, and the large self-contained courtyard annex, there is a very substantial separate range of period barn buildings, at the rear of the plot, with a separate driveway and independent access and grounds, these buildings have real development potential having previously had planning permission to be turned into four separate dwellings.

Barlborough itself has long been a popular and desirable location to live in, being so close to wonderful countryside and amenities locally. Good local transport links, located within easy access of the Junction 30 of the M1 making it ideal for regular commuters. If you need to be in the City you can travel by train from Chesterfield, Sheffield, or from Retford Station to Kings Cross/St Pancras in just over one hour & forty minutes. If you love the great outdoors you are in for a treat with easy access to the Clowne Greenway less than 1000 meters walk down the lane across the road from Wishfield House, you can walk or cycle to Poolsbrook country park. From your door, you are 2.5 miles to join the Trans Pennine Trail. Rother Valley Country park is less than four miles away and of course, you are in easy reach of the breath-taking Peak District and beautiful Clumber Park.
