Full description

NO CHAIN - PART EXCHANGE CONSIDERED - ECCLESBOURNE SCHOOL CATCHMENT Breathtaking panoramic views surround this stone built, four bedroomed detached farm house positioned at one of the highest points in the borough of Erewash with generous surrounding gardens of approximately 0.45 acres and substantial parking facilities.

The charming property originally dates to circa 1780, being remodelled from original materials in 1921. It has been sympathetically extended, most recently in 2008 to now provide a comfortable family home of modern day proportions incorporating quality mahogany hardwood framed double glazing and a state of the art oil fired central heating system.

The unrestricted views on offer here are undeniably spectacular panning across Derby city centre, North Leicestershire, Staffordshire, as well as Breadsall Village, Allestree Park and Golf Course. As you may expect, all bedrooms share this Southerly view as well as the ground floor living rooms. A generous plot extends to approximately 0.45 acres made up of a large gravelled driveway with secure gates, substantial garage and workshop, formal gardens and an additional expanse of lawn with sand stone patio and mature fruit trees.

The property is approached via a long lane serving just this house and two others, one being Bleak House's only nearby neighbour owing to this idyllic location. Although addressed as Breadsall, the property is positioned on the border with Little Eaton which has a generous range of local amenities, close by are three well regarded Golf Courses including Breadsall Priory with attached Country Club and Hotel. The A38 is extremely accessible leading onto the M1 corridor. Derby city centre is just a few miles away.
