Belper, near Blackbrook, named originally Beaurepaire – meaning beautiful retreat, has a wealth of history with the historic Strutts Mill located at Bridge Foot, looking up to some of the most beautiful surrounding country in the Derbyshire area. Belper is blessed with a wonderful history as a World Heritage Site but has much to offer as a thriving market town as well.

Holly House Farm sits on a hill-top location and the plot has been sympathetically designed using the area’s strong rural heritage. The stone from the original building could be incorporated in the construction of the building.

This is a rare opportunity to create a unique residence in a beautiful, well-sought after and prestigious area of Derbyshire.
