Tenure: Freehold

Set well back from the road is this particularly attractive two bedroomed detached bungalow situated in the picturesque and highly convenient village of Barrow-Upon-Trent which is ideally placed for the A50 which provides swift access on to the M1 motorway and East Midlands Airport.

Internally the well maintained and proportioned living accommodation has the benefit of gas central heating, majority secondary/ double glazing and in brief comprises an impressive entrance hall with built in cloaks, a generous sized lounge through diner measuring 20’0” in length, a brick built uPVC double glazed conservatory, modern fitted breakfast kitchen room, two bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside to the front there is a neat hedge with a well kept fore-garden and an adjacent driveway leading to an adjoining carport with a single garage and double doors. Immediately to the rear there is a beautiful enclosed landscaped garden that offers a certain degree of privacy that can only be truly appreciated when viewed.

The historic and picturesque village of Barrow-On-Trent located south of Derby between the river Trent and the Trent and Mersey Canal. The village itself offers some beautiful period architecture along with a village hall, public house, Sale and the sought after Davys Church of England Primary School, St Wilfrid's Church and the children's play park as well as a larger park with both full size and smaller football pitch. Interestingly Barrow-On-Trent was home to the writer Anne Mozley (1809- 1891) and the famous artist George Turner (1841- 1910) moved here from the historic village of Cromford near Matlock.There are excellent nearby road network connections providing swift access on to the A50, M1 motorway, East Midlands Airport and further regional business centres.

The sale provides a genuine opportunity for a discerning purchaser looking to acquire an outstanding retirement bungalow enjoying an enviable and highly desirable south Derbyshire village location.

Interestingly planning permission was granted in 2007 (Reference Number 9/2007/0712/FH) for a single storey extension and loft conversion to form a five bedroomed family house with en-suite shower room providing versatile living accommodation suitable for a large family.
