Of you like a touch of the gothic, but don’t want to be too far away from your modern conveniences, this 19th century converted Victorian pump house in Snarestone, Derbyshire, flagged up by @MattLunn74 on Twitter, could be your ideal place.
The building is believed to date back to 1892 and was in working order until recently, when it was converted into a domestic residence, one that mixes original period features with contemporary furnishings. For the former, we’re talking pump fly wheels, original steelwork, gothic windows and vaulted ceilings, for example.
The accommodation covers around 7104 square feet, with that space including a reception hall, breakfast kitchen, boiler room, cloakroom, inner hall, rear lobby, dining room, further inner hallway, utility, cloakroom, study, sitting room, cellarage, drawing room, billiards room and a galleried sitting room.
There are also two guest bedrooms with en-suites and one with a dressing room, along with a master bedroom suite and two further bedrooms with en-suites. Outside the property, you’ll find grounds extending to approximately 1.88 acres, mainly laid to sweeping lawn with mature trees. Within that, there’s also a double garage and workshop incorporating a one bedroom flat with kitchen and shower room.
If you fancy the move to Derbyshire, it’s on the market for £875,000.
