Lightbounds offers a wonderful family home set in beautiful gardens on the edge of the market town of Uttoxeter. The location is readily accessible with convenient commuting to the major cities and towns in the Midlands. The A50 trunk road, which connects the M1 and M6 motorways, is just over a mile away, Derby is about 19 miles, Nottingham 38 miles, Birmingham 40 miles and Stafford 14 miles.

There are good senior schools within reach; Thomas Alleynes High School in Uttoxeter, Denstone College (7 miles) Abbotsholme (6 miles), Abbots Bromley for Girls (7 miles), Repton (16 miles) and Derby High School (18 miles). Most of these schools offer a bus service from Uttoxeter. 

The Accommodation The house is understood to have been built in 1902, in Edwardian times, with arts and crafts themes running through it. Most of the windows have been replaced with hard wood double-glazed windows but retaining the original stained glass top lights. The accommodation is elegant and spacious with high ceilings and large windows. There is potential for extending the accommodation above the attached garage block. There is a large, enchanting reception hall and leading off it are four particularly well-proportioned reception rooms including a breakfast room which has French windows opening onto the broad South-facing sun-terrace. The drawing-room has a gas-fire and a corner bay, with fitted seating, which overlooks the Summerhouse lawn. The dining-room with a wide bay window and open fire is an excellent size for a large table. There is also a separate sitting-room. There is a modern kitchen through the wide arch in the breakfast room and a utility room beyond that which houses a washing-machine, dryer, freezer and extra storage cupboards. Beyond that again are two large store rooms. 

On The First Floor The generously-sized, galleried landing has a wide picture-window with French windows opening onto a balcony with views over the Racecourse and to the hills beyond. Each of the four bedrooms are good sized doubles. Three have dual aspect, one has an en-suite bathroom including a separate shower, another has an en-suite shower room. The large family bathroom has a shower above the bath. All bathrooms are modern and less than ten years old.

The 5th bedroom is on the 2nd floor and is currently used as a study. This floor also provides good storage with three full-size doors into walk-in attic spaces. 

Outside The house sits in nearly three acres of mature garden and paddock. It is approached up a long sweeping drive to one side of the front garden that leads to two garages, one of which has been converted into the two store rooms but could easily be returned to being a garage. The large loft space above the garages is boarded and is suitable for conversion if further accommodation was required. There is enough parking space for eight or more cars. There is a small lawn immediately in front of the house with stone steps that lead down to the main front lawn which is surround by trees and shrubs and an herbaceous border.

The rear garden faces South. French doors open onto a large terrace. To one side is the Summer House lawn and ahead are the main lawns, again with herbaceous borders and flower beds. The garden is divided into different parts with many quiet sitting areas, green paths, a "wild" area, a bamboo garden, a "bog" garden and many interesting and unusual trees and shrubs.

The paddock of about one and a quarter acres runs down the whole of one side of the formal garden and has a double gate at the far corner into Wood Lane. The current owners have managed the paddock as part of the garden grounds and it includes trees, an enclosed vegetable garden towards the top of the paddock with a steel fruit cage and a mature asparagus bed.
