Derbyshire period property

Chantry House is a very fine Grade II listed period house which dates back to 1725, located in the popular Derbyshire village of Melbourne. The house was enlarged and refaced in the 19th century with further alterations in the 20th century. Constructed of red brick under a tiled roof, the property now forms a striking, handsome family house.

Classic Georgian proportions mean that the stone flagged reception hall gives access to the downstairs reception rooms which include the drawing room, dining room and sitting room, all of which have good high ceilings and open fireplaces.
