It goes under the hammer on Tuesday, October 13 in an auction to be held at the Maynard Arms in Grindleford.

The farm is up for sale with two Grade II listed barns and 4.1 acres of land.

James Ross, Director at estate agents Eadon Lockwood and Riddle, which has offices in Sheffield, Rotherham and North Derbyshire, said: “This is an incredibly unique and quite striking property.

“Its Grade II listed status puts it in a group with only 20,000 other properties in the UK.

“Old Hall Farm will be a fantastic project for prospective renovators. The outbuildings have the potential to be transformed into equestrian facilities or even holiday homes, taking advantage of its setting in the beautiful Brightholmlee.

“With a guide price of just £60,000-£80,000, the lot has already attracted national interest from investors and developers.”

Dating back to the 15th century, Old Hall Farm was originally a cruck barn.

ELR said because of the condition of the property internal inspections cannot be carried out ahead of the auction, but external viewings are welcome.

Brightholmlee, which is a designated conservation area, was once a farming community consisting of four farms.

Old Hall Farm is a timber framed property with two crucks.
