With annexe providing the opportunity for multi-generational living, in addition to a purpose-built home office presenting excellent home working potential.
Offering superb, inspiring, open countryside views to the rear, this extensive elegant 1950's detached residence is modestly under-stated from the front, whilst enjoying over 3700sq ft of floorspace and benefitting from a linked large double garage and a large storage /workshop space. The ground floor annexe wing includes a bespoke purpose-built home office presenting excellent home-working potential but also a large double bedroom with ensuite shower room and galley kitchen with lounge area providing the opportunity for self-contained, multi-generational living.
The property enjoys a prime village location within Repton which is famous for its schools and history whilst being well-placed for the A38, A50, M1, M42 and M6, together with excellent access to the nearby centres of Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham. Just a short distance away are East Midlands Airport, Birmingham Airport and the cathedral city of Lichfield with its excellent train service to London.
Accommodation: The property is set on a superb plot of 0.736 acres with the advantage of a large gravelled driveway providing ample parking as well as an oversized double garage and workshop/store.
A double-glazed front entrance door opens into the porch which in turn leads to the reception hall with wood effect flooring, stairs rising to the first floor and doors leading off.
The first reception room is the lounge with a fireplace providing the focal point, wood flooring and a superb deep curved bay window with window seat providing views across the rear garden. A door leads onto the garden room with matching deep curved bay window with views across the rear garden, a large picture window and French doors opening out to the rear. An open archway leads to the breakfast kitchen which is well appointed with a range of base and eye level units, work surfaces and integrated appliances including an oven, hob, extractor, fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with additional cupboards and space for further appliances.
Also off the main hallway is a separate dining room with a fireplace and a large picture window framing views across the front.
From the kitchen there is an inner hallway with doors off to a guest WC and the sitting room which has a window to the side and rear and an archway gives access to the useful music/hobby room area. Double doors open into a superbly appointed study with a range of fitted furniture comprising desk, cupboards and well thought out storage.
There is a second entrance which provides access to the music/hobby room and also allows for independent access into the annex, which has a bedroom with fitted wardrobes across one wall, shower room and the advantage of its own lounge/kitchen area with a door out to the rear garden. This space also has the potential for a variety of uses including a separate dedicated work space.
Stairs rise off the main hall to the first-floor landing which has a window to the front and doors leading off. There are four double bedrooms on this floor; two of which enjoy deep curved bay windows offering superb views across the gardens and beyond.
The master bedroom is a particularly impressive double with a window framing far reaching view to the rear, a large walk-in wardrobe and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also has the benefit of an en-suite shower room and adjoining these two bedrooms is a 'room with a view', having glazed windows to the rear and side offering an ideal first floor sitting room/snug or study.
The family bathroom is well appointed with a suite comprising panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and WC, and a useful built-in double storage cupboard.
The property benefits from a generous gravelled driveway leading to an oversized double garage (21'3 ft x 19'5ft) with twin up and over front entrance doors and a door leading through to a good-sized workshop/store room (19'6 ft x 13'2ft) with double doors opening out to the rear and a useful internal hallway leading into the lounge. Over the garage and work shop there is loft space with skylight and the benefit of a staircase off the workshop being plastered out and painted.
The property stands on a fabulous 0.736acre plot with good stretches of lawn, established borders, fields to the side and rear together with being well concealed from the road by an established hedge. Given the width there is also plenty of potential with the plot, subject to planning and building regulations. The property originates from the 1950's and has been substantially and sympathetically extended enjoying a superb position on the fringe of this popular Derbyshire village.
