The Property

The former Stainsby School is situated in a fabulous position on the edge of the charming rural village of Stainsby, within the Hardwick Hall Estate and has superb views over the surrounding countryside. The site was formerly that of Stainsby Manor, a medieval manor house with a chapel, moat and rampart, and in recognition of its archaeological significance the site is now part of a scheduled ancient monument known as The Earthwork. A wide range of facilities are available in Clay Cross about 5.5 miles away, including a supermarket, a community hospital, library, leisure centre, medical centre, a church and various sports clubs. The towns of Chesterfield and Mansfield are 7 miles and 7.5 miles away respectively. There is plenty to see and do in the area, including a wide selection of walking trails, cycling, sailing at Ogston Reservoir, and a visit to nearby Stainsby Mill, along with a number of impressive stately homes such as Hardwick Hall, Bolsover Castle, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. The Peak District National Park is within about twelve miles. Stainsby has a well-established folk Festival which is held every summer. The area is extremely well served by major roads including the M1, A61 and A38, which provide good access to both north and southern areas of the country. East Midlands and Doncaster Sheffield Airports are both within striking distance and rail services are available from Chesterfield. There is a good selection of schools in the area, including primary schools in Heath, Doe Lea and Pilsley and secondary schools in Tupton and Tibshelf. Independent schools include Mount St Mary’s College and Barlborough Hall School, St Peter and St Paul School in Chesterfield and St Anselm’s Preparatory School in Bakewell. Description Stainsby School is approached via a driveway off Hawking Lane. The property is believed to have been constructed around 1895 of sandstone block with ashlar facing under a tiled roof and is a good example of 19th century school architecture, with much of its external appearance remaining unchanged. Key features include a steep pitched roof with low eaves, tall slim windows and a carved, ashlar lintel with stone pilasters above the main entrance. Stainsby School offers great potential for conversion for a variety of uses, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
