This South Derbyshire idyll, famed for its public school and history, provides a beautiful setting for this extended home with its stylish reception spaces, two good-sized bedrooms, and a spacious garden.
Set back from the lane, behind a wrought iron fence, the pathway leads up through the garden to a pretty entrance archway. And, behind the attractive façade, you’ll find an equally chic interior, which balances original features with contemporary comforts.
Period style tiled flooring features in the hallway, its lofty ceilings imparting a sense of airiness. The light continues in the lounge, which is as bright as it is cosy. Hunker down here on cooler evenings in front of the fire, reminiscent of a traditional log burner with its display of dancing flames. Views extend over the green through the modern sash windows and make this space, with its sense of hygge, a real sanctuary for relaxation.
At the heart of the home is the stunning dining kitchen, remodelled and extended to also accommodate a squishy sofa with ease. An expanse of oak worktops contrast with shaker style cabinetry, and lines are clean thanks to a host of integrated appliances. Lazy weekend brunch, anyone? The range cooker is a striking centrepiece for even the keenest of chefs, and there’s ample room to sit and eat together, accompanied by friends, family, and the Sunday papers.
The complementary central island with its quartz worktop is home to the breakfast bar area and the Belfast sink, whilst the modern lighting adds beautifully to the ambience. Attractive flooring flows up to the French doors, which lead directly out onto the patio area for al fresco good times, and the glass atrium roof light allows natural daylight to pour into the space.
Household chores are easily taken care of in the utility room, with its tiled floor and oak worktops, and there’s a guest cloakroom for added convenience.
There’s plenty of storage on the landing and, just off here, you’ll find both good-sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom, with its wall panelling and painted floorboards, oozes laid-back, soporific vibes. An ornamental, period style fireplace set off this space, and blinds diffuse the light streaming through the modern sash window.
Enjoying views over the rear garden, the second bedroom also features an original style fireplace, and, again, painted floorboards underfoot remain true to its inimitable cottage style.
Head to the contemporary, period style bathroom when nothing but a long soak will do. The roll top bath, complete with attractive ball-and-claw feet and period taps, is your licence to wallow. And, when a quick refresh is the order of the day, the fully tiled, dual shower is the place to be.
Entertain at leisure in the spacious rear garden. There’s a large patio for summer dining, a lawn for stretching legs and paws, and a shed for gardeners or those who just prefer to potter.
