** NO CHAIN ** Stanedge Lodge is a unique and imposing eight bedroom, six bathroom detached residence with outstanding views and huge development potential, which occupies a fabulous position in the Peak District National Park. The property enjoys a substantial and secluded plot of around seven acres. The masses of versatile living accommodation includes an entrance vestibule with access into the spacious stone floored entrance hall, which spans the full width of the rear of the lodge. The drawing room features a large fireplace, a bay window and a door to the front lawn, and original panelling. The panelling continues into the dining room, which also has a large open fireplace. Superb kitchen/breakfast room with double sized butler sink, and a four oven AGA which is oil fired. Large cellars, including an original Victorian wine cellar. A further sitting room with large stone fireplace, and separate utility with access into the garage/work shop. Staircases rise from either end of the house to the first floor where there are five generously proportioned double bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms, and three further bathrooms. One of these bedrooms has a mezzanine level, a seven metre high climbing wall, and two Velux windows with remote controlled solar powered blinds. The master bedroom suite benefits from a superb four piece suite bathroom and a separate dressing room. A further room on this floor can be used as a study. The rooms on the second (attic) level of the house are reached by three separate staircases. To the south end of the house is a large room lined with custom made oak shelving, with shower room attached and a small roof terrace accessible through double doors; to the centre of the house are two attic rooms, both with Velux windows, and the mezzanine level. The staircase at the north end of the house reaches a further large attic room with a single window, and a final attic room.
Large outbuildings with scope to convert into four separate dwellings, subject to the relevant planning permissions, which if used as holiday lets could generate an income in excess of £100,000 a year. Double garage with direct access to the house.
Stunning moorland views from every aspect. The property is accessed from Redmires Reservoirs via a private, gated driveway approximately one mile long. A stream runs alongside the driveway on the section closest to the Lodge.
