My theme on today’s #Rightmovecrush was: ‘Which Downton would you Choose?’. I showcase a wonderful selection of historic homes all of which and in sadly in need of a new owner. One particular property completely stood out for me, Hathersage Hall. Not only is it situated in the dramatically beautiful Peak District, the grand property has a warmth that tears at your heart.
May I present my Downton Abbey – Hathersage Hall.
Offered for the first time on the open market in a generation, a unique opportunity has arisen to acquire this elegant grade II * listed family home dating back to the 15th Century.
Hathersage Hall is situated in the picturesque village of Hathersage in the Derbyshire Peak District. Set within beautiful gardens and grounds of approximately 4 acres with secure gated entrance, walled gardens, mature shrubberies, herbaceous borders and impressive fruit trees.
The accommodation with its impressive classical facade is made up of 3 parts, the most beautiful part is Jacobean with its Oak staircase and superb dining room. The front part of the house is typically Georgian and the oldest part a Tudor fortified dwelling dating from 1496.

Exterior and Gardens
To the front the property is approached via the main Hathersage Road through two stone gate posts and double electric gates with sweeping gravelled driveway leading to the main front entrance door framed with climbing roses and wisteria.
Plans have recently been drawn up for new garaging and have been looked upon favourably by the local planning office.
Beautifully maintained and level lawned fore garden with its impressive Copper Beech tree. There is extensive parking and turning area, a side entrance within a walled courtyard and further walled courtyard area with gardener’s WC.
To the side is a secret garden with stone circle. To the rear, beyond the stone archway and wrought iron gates are delightful grounds consisting of mature shrubberies and walkways, an ancient English rose garden, a herb garden, wild flower beds and an expanse of neatly
shaped and level lawns with flower borders and seating areas.
Beyond this the Sundial walkway leads to the lovely fountain orchard, a former kitchen garden serving the house, ornamental woodland, pond and 17th century pond house.
The entire gardens which extend to approximately 4 acres are walled providing privacy and security to this magnificent family home.
