5 bedroom semi-detached house for sale
Castle Hill, Duffield, Derby, DE56 4EA
A very rare opportunity to acquire one of these fine Edwardian semi-detached period residences located in this extremely sought after area just off Hazelwood Road and close to Chevin golf course.
The house is believed to date from between 1900 and 1910 constructed of brick beneath a roof of tile with the front elevation relieved by imposing ground and first floor stone mullioned cant bay windows, sash windows together with a decorative timber gable with matching surrounds. It is set back from the pavement edge behind a natural stone wall and foregarden.
The property benefits from a driveway to the rear providing off-road parking for several vehicles and a detached double garage with electric up and over door. It also offers excellent potential to convert the loft for further accommodation (subject to planning permission). Yet another feature of the sale is its delightful large lawned rear garden with several patio areas, two timber sheds, outside brick store, greenhouse and outside w.c.
In brief the accommodation comprises entrance hall with stairs leading to first floor, fitted guest's cloakroom, lounge, separate dining room, breakfast room, kitchen and utility room/pantry. The first floor landing leads to four double bedrooms, nursery/bedroom five/potential en-suite and fitted bathroom.
The accommodation is light and spacious with many character features.
The village of Duffield is extremely sought after with an excellent range of amenities including a varied selection of shops and schools including The Meadows and William Gilbert Primary Schools and the noted Ecclesbourne Secondary School. There is a regular train service to Derby city centre which lies some five miles to the south of the village with Derby's outer ring road providing onward connections to the principal trunk roads, the motorway network and other East and West Midlands centres.
The thriving market town of Belper is situated three miles north of the village and provides a more comprehensive range of shops and leisure facilities. Local recreational facilities within the village include squash, tennis, football, rugby, cricket and Chevin golf course which is a short distance away from the property.
A further point of note is that the Derwent Valley, in which the village of Duffield nestles, is one of the few World Heritage Sites.
