The Property - A detached period property, originally being the Coach House to the main property at the front, which some years ago was converted to form an extremely spacious Family Home, with excellent potential for further accommodation within the roof space, subject to requirements and obtaining the usual planning and building regulation approvals. Offered with immediate vacant possession, the property does requires some further cosmetic repair. Approached via the entrance hall with inner hallway, lounge with feature fireplace, separate dining room, third reception/bedroom five, kitchen, rear hall, utility room, and cloaks/WC/shower room. To the first floor a landing affords access to the master double bedroom with double French doors opening to the feature balcony area with castillated decorative brick walling, a further three bedrooms, and bathroom.

Location - The property enjoys a particularly secluded setting, approached via the shared tree-lined driveway and whilst enjoying this extremely private location, the property is accessed off the sought-after Whitaker Road, which we understand lies within the catchment area of the highly-regarded Littleover Community School, and is within minutes walking distance of Burton Road and Littleover centre, with a regular bus service to Derby city centre.
