Stretton Cottage, Highstairs Lane, Stretton, Derbyshire, DE55


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying a secluded plot accessed via a private driveway, Stretton Cottage couldn't be better located. High Stairs Lane has long been regarded by local househunters as the very best of its type; a country lane lined with historic, characterful and exclusive properties. Despite its distinctly rural feel, the property is within easy reach of excellent local amenities at nearby Alfreton and Higham and is conveniently placed for access to the wider motorway network and the major cities of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. Built from local stone and retaining much of the original character from its beginnings as a farm building, the property now offers luxurious, spacious and flexible accommodation that will appeal to a range of potential purchasers. Stretton Cottage offers three reception room, five bedrooms (three of which are en-suite), extensive parking in the front courtyard, a garage and a beautifully landscaped rear garden enclosed by dry stone walls.

The property is accessed via a private drive and electric gates, which lead to the paved courtyard to the front of the property. The building flanks two sides of the courtyard; the nature of the building meaning it is effectively in two wings (which could easily be split into two separate dwellings) and as such there are two entrances, entrance hallways and staircases. The ground floor offers three reception rooms, joined in the centre by a beautifully appointed kitchen. The living room and dining room are open-plan and enjoy views of, and access to the garden and there is a generous separate sitting room. There is also a study, ground floor WC, ground floor showerroom, a utility room and access to the garage. The jewel in the crown of the first floor is the master bedroom suite that boasts a large walk in wardrobe and a stunning ensuite with large walk-in shower and centrepiece freestanding bath. There are four further double bedrooms, all of which look onto the courtyard and are accessed via the long, well-lit landing which joins the two staircases. The bedrooms are all doubles and many feature the exposed beams of the original building. Two bedrooms have en-suites and all are complimented by a generous family bathroom. Externally there is a beautiful, tiered, landscaped rear garden with manicured lawns, paved seating areas and stone built BBQ.
