 A classic, early Georgian house offering excellent family accommodation over three floors with bright and well- proportioned rooms.  The road from Ilam leads all the way to the house which is approached through a fine pair of stone gate pillars topped with ball finials and a pair of wrought iron gates leading to a courtyard to the front of the house with parking for several vehicles.

Casterne sits with the Peak District National Park, is a stones throw from Dovedale and has access to the many outdoor amenities the Park has to offer including walking, cycling, riding, climbing, shooting and fishing to name but a few. Other fine historical places of interest are within easy reach including Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. Good schools in the area include Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Ashbourne, Derby Grammar, Repton, Denstone and Abbotsholme as well as Foremarke and S Anselms Preparatory schools.

Historical Note

It is thought that there has always been a dwelling at Casterne since the earliest of days. The field around are littered with Iron Age, Bronze Age and even Stone Age remains. There are Roman remains in the cellars and therefore have been important Roman and Saxon finds around the house. The grange at Casterne was owned by Burton Abbey until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It was acquired by Roger Hurt, younger son of Nicholas Hurt of Ashbourne, who settled there in the mid 16th Century.

The Hall in its current guise dates from circa 1735 when it was rebuilt for Nicholas Hurt (1710-1767) with the architects Smiths of Warwick and local master mason Richard Trubshawe of Haywood in Staffordshire and the Georgian front was added to a Stuart and mediaeval back of the house.
