Guide Price £750,000

Full Description

** SELECT PROPERTY ** Sitting within a phenomenal 2.5 acre plot, this fantastic period home not only showcases an already extended and improved four bedroomed family home, but also offers an extremely unique opportunity for development and extension for both personal and equestrian use. A much loved family home for over 30 years, Manor Lodge dates back to the early 1800s, originally serving as a gatehouse to the local Manor. With Victorian features, both restored and improved upon, this is a unique opportunity to acquire both prime land and a wonderful family home with unrivalled potential in a desirable South Derbyshire Village.

The accommodation on offer very briefly comprises: Reception lobby/snug with feature fireplace; study; spacious living/dining room; a generous dual-aspect living/kitchen/diner; separate utility room; four well proportioned bedrooms (three with fitted wardrobes) and with en suite to the master bedroom; fitted family bathroom.

Outside, the property continues to impress, with a two-car driveway directly in front and double gated access to the side to a hard-standing area providing parking for a dozen or more vehicles. A 30ft plus barn resides at the far end of the parking area, which is a further redevelopment opportunity for stables or additional garaging to service the incredible 2.5 acres sweeping grounds of the property, adorned by feature trees, mature foliage and a relaxing brook punctuating the North side of the plot.

Although private and secluded, Manor Lodge has immediate access to countryside walks and the Barrow-on-Trent Nature Reserve. It is also extremely convenient for local amenities, including shops and schools as well as having excellent road and public transport links to Derby, Rolls-Royce, the Royal Derby Hospital and much more. Barrow-on-Trent also provides excellent access to the A50 (1.7 miles), M1 (8 miles) and the A38.

A viewing is truly essential to appreciate the size, standard and position of the property and plot on offer.
