It’s a grand old place with many original features still intact, and presents a great opportunity with the potential to update and improve its stunning rooms.

From huge and impressive fireplaces, to parquet flooring, stone mullion windows and solid oak beams, the character of St John’s Farmhouse is considerable.

Its grounds, too, are impressive, with open countryside adjoining. There is well over half an acre of gardens, so a lovely, private location with proximity to Chesterfield and Sheffield, and just a short distance from the main motorway network.

The reception hall gives a strong impression with its large feature fireplace.

Another striking fireplace in gritstone is a focal point of the family-with-dining room, along with heavy oak beams. There’s a Minster fireplace in the spacious sitting room with its French windows, then the kitchen with a range of units and a leaded window.

A utility and shower room is also on the ground floor, with access to the double garage, that could possibly be converted to a larger kitchen or other use if preferred. And there’s a basement cellar.

An open tread staircase leads up to a galleried landing with four bedrooms off, then up again to a further four attic rooms.

One main bedroom has its own en suite facility, along with the family bathroom.

The property has its own private driveway with plenty of parking space and the garage. Lawned gardens have scattered fruit trees.

Part of a paddock is for sale by separate agreement.

St John's Cross Farmhouse, Marsh Lane, holds an asking price of £695,000.
