5 Bedrooms, 4 Receptions, 2 Bathrooms, Detached, Freehold

An individual detached five bedroom home in a desirable location right in the heart of the thriving Derbyshire village of Breaston. It was built to a high specification in 1996 and is offered to the market for the first time. A family home with potential for multi-generational living, it must be viewed to appreciate its size as it is deceptively spacious.

The Ground Floor accommodation comprises a fully-glazed Porch, Dining Hall, Living Room with adjoining Conservatory, Kitchen with separaty Pantry and adjoining Utility room, Master Bedroom with adjoining Bathroom, Snug and Cloakroom. The woodwork throughout this floor is solid hardwood.

An open staircase leads to the family bathroom and four further bedrooms, two of which are doubles.

Outside, the gated driveway provides off-road parking for five cars. There is also a detached double garage. The corner plot provides gardens on three sides of the house.

The house is a stone's throw from a range of facilities in the centre of the village, including shops, a Post Office, churches, pubs and eateries.

Breaston village has excellent transport links. There are frequent buses from the village green to Nottingham and Derby. Long Eaton Railway Station is also close by with trains to London in 1.5 hours or Manchester in 2 hours. The nearby M1, A50 and other trunk roads provide ready access to major cities and towns. East Midlands Airport is a 20 minute drive away.

The block paving driveway at the front of the house is gated and provides off-road parking for five cars.
To one side of the house is a detached double garage with power, light and a remote control door; there is a paved area behind. The garden surrounds the other three sides of the house and includes a greenhouse (with power and light), water supply and an 'outside' WC (integral to the house, but with a door to the garden only).

The side and rear gardens are mostly laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and ornamental trees in the borders. In the side garden the pond has been filled up for safety, but could be readily reinstated. The rear garden is a private space and to its side is the Duffield Close park.

These deatils are for guidance only and form no part of any contract. Measurement and floor plans are also for guidance.
