Bubnell Hall is a superb Grade II listed family house situated on the edge of the popular village of Baslow in the heart of some of Derbyshire’s most desirable countryside. The house is built of sandstone under a stone slate room and dates back to the mid 17th century. The property has been added to over the centuries and now represents one of the most important houses in the area.
The Hall is approached through a large set of private gates, over a formal driveway to the large parking area adjacent to the front door. The Hall is dominated by stone mullioned windows on the front elevation and the impressive nature of the house is immediately apparent on arrival.
Ground floor: The front door gives access to a wide entrance hall giving a good indication of the stature of the rooms internally. The drawing room lies in the south-eastern corner of the house and is a superb panelled room with a particularly high ceiling and a large open fireplace. There is an inner hall leading into a charming dining room with a further open fireplace and storage cupboards. On the western side of the house is a cosy study for informal entertaining as well as a large ballroom with two sets of double doors leading onto the gardens. The utility room lies beyond. The kitchen is on the northern side of the property and is separated into a dining area and cooking area with immaculate kitchen units surrounding three sides of the property and an AGA as well as a central island.
