Full description

This is a wonderfully versatile detached executive home in excess of 3,200 square foot of well-appointed accommodation. The property is nestled at the end of a private drive in a substantial plot of approximately a third of an acre with a south facing aspect. Woodend is very secluded, yet close to many local amenities.

Accomodation - On entering the home, there is a welcoming reception hallway with wooden flooring and a galleried staircase leading to the first floor. From here there is access to the cloakroom and separate large utility room as well as the all the principle living rooms of the home.

Firstly, there is the large lounge which features dual aspect windows, a feature carved marble fireplace and access to the rear decked patio area and in turn glazed double doors leading to the dining room. The dining room also leads to the breakfast kitchen which forms a lovely central hub for the home and large enough for a dining table. It is also dual aspect and has solid maple units and granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances.

We then have the swimming pool suite. With a stunning vaulted Douglas Fir beamed ceiling, the garden pool room approaches 40’ in length. As you would expect there is changing facility and a shower room plus at the other end there is a wonderful reception area overlooking the gardens with a conservatory roof and featuring a wide bay. This is large enough for ample seating and a dining table. On either side there are twin sets of French doors leading out to different areas of the garden. The heated pool measures 24x12 foot with lighting and pool cover included. This room has been designed with flexibility which offer ample possibilities for an easy, inexpensive, conversion into a further living space or annex. The current owners previously considered changing it into a 1 bedroomed ‘granny flat’.

To finish the ground floor there is a large en-suite guest bedroom with full bathroom, comprising a walk-in shower and a double ended air jet bath. This suite could just as easily be used as another reception room or has further annexe possibilities.

I absolutely love the pool and conservatory, which is the most beautiful place to sit and we use as a second living room. We have replaced the all the windows, doors and roof adding a new vaulted ceiling and tiled roof. In addition, we added solar panels to the back of the house which are invisible from the ground yet make the house more economical to run.”

The First Floor landing is galleried with doors leading off to five generous bedrooms, the family bathroom and a large airing cupboard. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room as does bedroom two, and this room also has built in wardrobes and dressing table. The other three rooms to this floor are double bedrooms and all have built-in wardrobes . There is a well-appointed family bathroom with a walk-in quadrant shower, bath, wc and sink unit.

Seller Interview - Bought off plan, this was the first on a small development of 6 executive houses” says the current owner of 6 The Spinney.

“Spacious, extraordinarily quiet and easy to maintain - it has the feeling of being a house in the country whilst being in a village location.” “Occupying the largest and quietest of the plots, as it is tucked behind the others, it is so much more private and calm.”

“This is a very tranquil house. Everyone who comes here says it feels very homely and peaceful, while being deceptively spacious. People have often described it as a ‘tardis’ house, with a sweet, seemingly cosy façade, but surprisingly large once you get inside, with both house and gardens stretching back a long way back. It’s a lot bigger than it looks from the outside and you’d never guess it has the added luxury of an indoor swimming pool!”

“The gardens wrap around the L-shaped house, and my mother was a keen gardener so planted a huge variety of shrubs and flowers. The generous rear gardens are full of stunning mature, conservation order, trees and not at all overlooked. With a field next door and no houses behind, just land, it is a very private place.” says the owner.
“On the other side, the patio doors open from the living room onto the south facing garden so we spend all our time out there in the sun in the summertime. The huge lawn is large enough to be used for croquet, while the deck and summerhouse are ideal for entertaining purposes.”

“In the heart of the village, the house is surrounded by lovely country walks, yet convenient for travel to Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester, Birmingham and Manchester. It is also an easy trip to London, where I used to commute every day for some time.” says the owner. “As the train takes under 1.5 hours, I found it very easy to live near to Derby yet work in Kings Cross!”

“The village itself is lively and friendly, with lots going on, and has a pub, post office and a well-regarded new junior school.”

“The house is fabulous for entertaining. With 6 bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite, guests can have their own room and facilities. With the pool, sundeck and gardens, it is brilliant for parties, very easy and relaxing.”

“I will really miss the indoor swimming pool, an unusual luxury to have!

Outside - The home is nicely tucked away from all the main roads and the hustle and bustle and is a tranquil oasis within the village.

It is approached via a private driveway owned by this property and leads to a block paved frontage with ample parking and a turning area and leading to a single garage.
The rear wrap around gardens are a delightful space perfect for family life.

To one side there is a lovely south facing raised deck area accessed from the lounge, which overlooks the gardens; to the other is a substantial lawned area surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. The whole garden is very private and easy to maintain. There is summer house included in the sale which makes a delightful further seating area with the deck in front.

Location - The village of Brailsford is a delightful spot located halfway between Derby and the market town of Ashbourne. Within the village itself and within walking distance is a newly constructed primary school, a village pub, local church, village hall and shops including a post office, cafés and a beauty therapy spa. You can reach Ashbourne via the A52 in less than 10 minutes where a full range of amenities, including several supermarkets, a leisure centre and a newly built hospital, are on hand. The village is perfectly located for access into the Peak District and yet also convenient for commuting with the A50, A38 and M1 link roads all within easy reach. Leisure facilities include the Brailsford Golf Course and there is an activity park catering for young adults. There are 2 country parks nearby including Keddleston Hall.

Services To The Property - All mains services are connected. There are Photovoltaic solar panels to the rear roof which are owned outright.
