Seller Interview - "As soon as we set eyes on this property, which was at the time divided into three different dwellings, we could see its potential to be transformed a fantastic family home once again," says the current owner of 27 The Settlement. "Therefore, we set about doing just that, making it into the five-bedroom home it is today, whilst retaining many charming original Victorian features such as the picture rails, coving on the ceilings and gorgeous sash windows, as well as original fireplaces in most rooms. There is real feeling of old and new having been combined to create a unique, welcoming home."

"The Settlement is a very special area, entering it is like stepping back in time," continues the owner. "It is a conservation area, it is largely left untouched, with a whole host of beautiful Listed buildings all set in peaceful surroundings, very secluded, like a village within a village, The Settlement is extremely charming. The popular village of Ockbrook itself is very nice, with the Apple Tree Coffee Shop, four different pubs for food and entertaining, as well as fantastic schools in both the private and state sectors." Particularly notable are Ockbrook Moravian Private School and the local primary school, with further local amenities consisting of a post office, a range of shops and facilities including a supermarket in neighbouring Borrowash. Ockbrook is also convenient for Derby city centre and Nottingham via the A52, and the Peak District only 30 minutes drive away.

The gardens are another desirable feature of this property, beautifully kept and exquisitely planted. "The previous owner, over 100 years old, was a very passionate gardener," says the current owner, "and had already established various species of perennial flowers, shrubs and trees. All year round there are surprises shooting up and coming into bloom, so there is always some colour in the garden. It is particularly lovely in Spring when the snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils begin to emerge."

Best thing about the grounds
"The yard seating area gets the morning sun at breakfast time, while the rest of the garden is in the sun all day."

What they will miss most
"We will greatly miss our home, the particular warm and welcoming charm of this lovely property."

Favourite room
"I love the kitchen, which is very spacious and light, It is perfect for entertaining or cooking with the family."

Memorable event
"With three reception rooms, the house has provided plenty of space for entertaining over the years, its welcoming atmosphere being conducive to intimate dinner parties and relaxed evenings with friends and family."
