Recognised as one of 'Derbyshire's great family houses', Bubnell Hall is a glorious country residence
Derbyshire is fortunate to have many lovely and historic houses tucked away down its lanes. Given the right amount of attention, they can remain unspoiled while still offering a wonderful home for modern living. Situated on the fringe of the village of Baslow, just four miles from Bakewell, Bubnell Hall is a perfect example of what can be achieved when a period property has been beautifully maintained.
Regarded as one of the most important houses in the area, the Grade II listed residence dates back to the mid 17th century – though it is believed that the original hall was much smaller – and extensions in the 18th and early 19th centuries have resulted in a unique blend of architectural styles.
Built of sandstone under a slate roof, the hall’s striking main front is enclosed by two projecting wings, and the property’s impressive façade is dominated by stone mullioned windows. Incredibly versatile and spacious accommodation includes four reception rooms, a kitchen – divided into separate dining and cooking areas – a study for informal entertaining, a large playroom with doors leading onto the gardens, painting room, sewing room and a wine cellar.
There are eleven bedrooms in total – including a master bedroom suite with a private dressing room and bathroom – and three further bathrooms.
Outdoors, a converted traditional barn houses a reception room, billiard room, gym, swimming pool, sauna and a changing room with a shower and wc.
Guarded by private gates, the hall is approached via a formal driveway and occupies a generous plot of land extending to 3.37 acres. The immaculate and well-tended gardens feature mature trees, a summer house, fruit cages, raised beds and a hard tennis court, plus an excellent range of outbuildings including two stables and four garages. A particularly appealing home for those with equestrian interests, the land at Bubnell Hall includes a large field and a smaller enclosed field.
