Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying a truly stunning plot and position approaching one acre, this wonderful home has formal landscaped gardens with a pretty stream bordering onto open countryside to the rear.

Built in 1998, by a local builder under architect supervision, the property offers a versatile split-level interior extending to over 3000sq ft of living space (including the garage). It is elegantly decorated with Farrow & Ball paintwork and exudes inherent charm of its own, with both style and modern sophistication blending perfectly with a chic interior, this is a family home to be truly proud of.

The property is further enhanced with the construction of the 'Hayloft', a triple garage with a luxury apartment over measuring nearly 1500sq ft. It has been designed by renowned local architect David Granger and offers a business opportunity with planning consent granted for the apartment to be used as a small bespoke boutique B & B. There is potentially a further opportunity to develop the triple garage into further B&B accommodation (subject to obtaining planning consents) to provide supplementary income.

The main house benefits from an efficient oil-fired central system and there is a separate system for the 'Hayloft'.

On entering the property, you will find an impressive reception hall and four reception rooms including a superb dining room with views to the galleried landing, splendid lounge with a wood-burning stove, a garden room which takes full advantage of the aspect over the landscaped gardens and a spacious study. There is a bespoke handcrafted kitchen with integrated appliances, and completing the ground floor is a laundry room with stairs off leading to bedroom five which is ideal as a teenage suite.

On the first floor is a spacious galleried landing which looks down into the dining area. The master bedroom enjoys built-in wardrobes and a recently refitted, luxury en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms including bedroom two which also has an en-suite shower room. Completing the first floor is the main family bathroom, also recently refitted to an exceptionally high standard.

Outside, the property is situated off Main Street via a shared, hidden driveway serving two properties. It leads to the front of the property where there is a continuation of the driveway which leads to the side and rear and through to the 'Hayloft'. The current owners have carefully tended and landscaped the formal lawned gardens, creating many outside spaces and sun terraces designed to take full advantage of the sun as it moves around the property. The gardens are stocked with a wonderful array of flowering and herbaceous borders with many annual and perennial plants, specimen trees and shrubs.

A natural spring hugs the right hand boundary, hence the house name, and the rear of the garden backs onto National Trust Woodland and open fields beyond.

Smisby is a small village situated in South Derbyshire with great local amenities including: two pubs serving excellent food and ales, a village hall, playground, nursery, children's out of school and holiday club, church, allotments and the Bluebell Arboretum. There is a friendly village social scene, with the Parochial Charity organising twice-yearly events such as hog roasts and tea parties. The village has a network of public footpaths, biking trails and bridleways leading towards Calke Abbey, the River Trent and the Peak District with sailing clubs at Staunton Harold Reservoir and Foremarke. Excellent road links include A42, AA38, M1, A444 and A511.

Freehold (purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).

Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas are believed to be connected to the property but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.
