Place: Edensor, Derbyshire
Property / Street / Road: -
Date: 1910 - 1914
Description/Historical Information: Very early Victorian stone built house, situated next to the church. The windows below the end gable face the church.
Pevsner (1953 Penguin edn) stated that the houses in Edensor were designed by a Derby architect called John Robertson and were built about 1839. The site of the village was moved because the sixth Duke of Devonshire did not wish to see the village from Chatsworth House.
A pretty oriel window on the first floor faces the road. The chimney stack on the right is topped with a trio of distinctive chimney pots with a spiral design.
The roof line is irregular, as are those of other houses in the development. Many have turrets or battlements.

- Edensor, St. Peter's Church is in the Derbyshire Picture Gallery in another part of this web site. Look carefully at the second picture down on that web page and you can just make out the chimney pots, although the house itself is hidden behind a tree.
