The Property - We understand the property was constructed by the highly regarded local developer, Michael Goodall Homes, to their 'Sheridan' design, in approximately 2001/2002, and the current vendors are the only vendors to have occupied the property. Since construction they have undertaken further improvements and extensions, to include an extension to the rear to the kitchen in 2007, and refitting with modern fitments and and integrated appliances, a conservatory extension in approximately 2005, and enclosing the entrance porch. The property offers excellent and delightfully appointed and highly adaptable, spacious Family accommodation, which can only be appreciated by early internal inspection. The property is approached via the enclosed entrance porch to the reception hall with modern cloaks/WC off, front lounge with attractive fire surround, separate dining room with double doors to the conservatory, fourth reception/sitting room, extended dining kitchen with modern units and integrated appliances, and utility room. To the first floor, a semi-galleried landing affords access to the large master bedroom with en-suite shower room, guest bedroom two with en-suite shower room, a further three bedrooms, and family bathroom. Outside, the property benefits from an integral double garage, long driveway affording car standing, front garden, and pleasant landscaped rear garden.

Location - The property enjoys a quiet and secluded, pleasant cul-de-sac setting off Station Road, with the additional advantage of adjoining open countryside to the rear, with the Mickleover railway walk and cycle track, and the old Station Masters House. Whistlestop Close is on the fringe of the sought-after suburb of Mickleover, which is well served by local amenities to include primary and secondary schools, local shopping, restaurants, public houses, churches, library, doctors surgeries and dentists, and is within the catchment area of the highly regarded John Port school at Etwall. The property is literally within minutes walking distance of open countryside, and within easy access of the Royal Derby Hospital and the principal works of Rolls Royce and Toyota.

Directions - When leaving Derby city by vehicle, proceed on Uttoxeter Road towards Mickleover passing the Royal Derby Hospital on the left-hand side, continuing on Uttoxeter Road to the centre of Mickleover, and at the roundabout turn right onto Station Road, following the road for approximately three-quarters of a mile before finding Whistlestop Close on the left-hand side.
