A superb opportunity to acquire a fine detached residence of style and character with a delightful garden setting, offering a high degree of privacy with a warm southerly aspect located on the edge of the very sought after village of Duffield.

The property stands in a slightly elevated and prominent position enjoying pleasant views across the Derwent Valley.

We believe the property was built in the 1860s and is constructed of brick beneath a pitched tiled roof, with the main elevation having an attractive appearance revealed by impressive gables and matching UPVC double glazed windows with leaded finish.

The property is approached via secure twin wrought iron electric gates opening onto a driveway providing an in-and-out system leading to a brick built double detached garage with games room/studio over.

The first floor landing leads to five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

A beautiful private garden extends to approximately 2 acres and enjoys sweeping lawns, well stocked flowerbeds, rockery, Indian flagstone patios and specimen trees.

The property is sold with the benefit of a detached brick and tiled indoor swimming pool with two double bedroom apartment/annex over.

Location -

Park Leys is located approximately 1/2 mile from the extremely sought after village of Duffield, with its excellent range of amenities, including a varied selection of shops and schools, including The Meadows & William Gilbert Primary Schools and the noted Ecclesbourne Secondary School.

There is a regular train service to Derby City centre, which lies some 5 miles to the south of the village.

Local recreational facilities within the village include squash, tennis, football, rugby, cricket and noted Chevin golf course.

Derby's outer ring road provides convenient access to major trunk roads including the A38, A52 and A50, serving the M1, M42 and M6, making the area highly accessible. East Midlands International Airport is approximately 30 minutes drive.

The famous market town of Ashbourne lies some 10 miles away, known as the gateway to The Peak District National Park, which is Britain's oldest park and provides some stunning scenery including Dovedale.

A further point of note is that the Derwent Valley in which the village of Duffield nestles, is one of the few World Heritage Sites.

Private education nearby includes Repton School and Derby High School in Littleover.
