VENDORS COMMENTS Dog Rose House, originally a farm bungalow, has been dramatically extended about 20-years ago, creating a very spacious family home of character. The property, located on a quiet country lane with open farmland on two sides, has a well maintained garden with distant views towards Breedon on the Hill and the Cloud Trail. Since the front aspect gives no idea of the character and spaciousness of this property, a personal viewing is essential.

The extensive ground floor accommodation is accessed through a recently added fully-glazed porch of eye-catching style and convenience, leading to the Dining Hall which forms the hub for the remaining rooms. Double doors lead to a fabulously spacious Lounge with exposed beams supporting a high vaulted ceiling. A feature stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove is backed by a large window with French doors to the south-aspect patio, also accessible from the kitchen, and providing the perfect space for outdoor living in quiet privacy.

The Kitchen is fitted with hand-made pine wall and base units providing ample storage. A Stanley oil-fired range provides central heating and hot water, but also independently offers cooking with a large twin hotplate and two ovens. A built-in eye-level electric twin oven/grill is complemented alongside by a Calor-gas hob. The Belfast sink is set in a granite surround which extends the width of the window.

A short passage leads to the Master Bedroom with dressing area and en suite newly fitted shower room with a walk-in shower space. The dressing area with built-in wardrobes can easily serve as a study or nursery. The two other ground-floor bedrooms are served by a newly fitted family bathroom with twin washbasins, a shower over the bath, and a walk-in shower space.

Conveniently close to the living rooms is a small toilet. All three bathrooms have new sanitary ware.

The stairs to the upstairs rooms are reached through a sliding door which affords privacy. The spacious double bedroom and smaller twin room have their own shower room between them. All have Velux windows.

The double garage has a block-paved drive and a remote-controlled electric main door. The block paving extends alongside the garage for more parking. The garage which has all-round shelving, is also conveniently accessed from the porch. A floored area above the garage, with loft ladder, provides more storage, with a Velux window, and electric power and light.

A side gate gives privacy to the back garden and wood shed which also provides shelter for garden machinery and a coal bunker. From here, the garden extends in front of the kitchen to a vegetable plot and accesses the oil tank. A serpentine path leads to the rest of the garden, mainly lawn, with flower borders, soft fruit area and established fruit trees. A tool shed and summer house (named "The Dog House") are useful facilities.

Solar PV panels provide free electricity which can be used e.g. for water heating, especially in summer. The system additionally earns typically £1,500pa, which is index-linked (vendor's figures).

The hamlet of Wilson is on the Leicestershire / Derbyshire border with Melbourne as the nearest town (1.3miles). Wilson has its own golf course, health club and swimming pool. The Cloud Trail is close by. Melbourne Hall is the local stately home with extensive parkland and nearby lake. The interesting market town of Ashby is 7 miles, Derby 10 and Loughborough 12miles. All road directions are provided by A453, A42, A50, M1, A6 and A52. East Midlands Airport provides internal and holiday flights, and East Midlands Parkway rail connections to London, and elsewhere via Derby or Nottingham.
