Burrows Old Hall, Burrows Lane, Brailsford, Ashbourne


£1,200,000Sold STC

Fine Grade II Listed residence of charm and character set in delightful walled gardens and occupying a very pleasant position on the outskirts of the hamlet of Over Burrows with far reaching views.

Interestingly, the vendors have a fascinating historical story of the property in which it states that the older part is believed to date from 1639 and is of stone base brick construction beneath a roof of Staffordshire blue tiles with the front revealed by stone mullioned windows, one with drip stone over together with an entrance door having a dressed stone reveal. The principal part of the residence dates from 1765 as indicated by the date stone and also incorporating the initials SO (Samuel Osborne) who was the original owner’s grandson. This part of the house is again double fronted with two elevations finished in dressed stone with the front being stone base finished in brick beneath a roof of Staffordshire blue tiles.
