More of the period features run through this room and there are French doors leading through to a conservatory; a useful room overlooking the rear gardens with French doors leading to the outside. There is also a useful study room with a further sash window to the side elevation. The Breakfast kitchen is a nice size and has a range of storage cupboards along with sink unit and tiled flooring.

Vendor Interview - Whitaker Road is a pleasing leafy street and a prestigious Derby address. Andrew and Hazel were charmed by the area and the Victorian elegance of number 101. The large elegant rooms and original features, of what was once a coach house, combine with the modern comforts of twenty first century living, to create an ultra comfortable family home. The family have loved their seventeen years in the house.

The location was perfect for the needs of all the family. It is within walking distance of vibrant Derby town centre, the Royal Derby Hospital and there are excellent state and independent schools. There is a wide choice of cultural and sporting amenities, plus an annual book festival in June.

Derby is centrally placed for easy access to Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham which provides opportunities for work and pleasure. The fast train service into London St Pancras enables a daily commute and one which Andrew benefitted from for work.

As you step into the majestic and light flooded hallway, you are aware that this is going to be a very special house. The family have enjoyed the entire house, where each room offers its own special character, and a warm and inviting ambience.

The chic sitting room is where you can sink into comfy sofas by a winter fire, and totally unwind: soothed by the calming mood. The room’s perfect proportions; large attractive window and finely detailed cornice, make it an impressive and superb formal entertaining area.

Hazel explains that the refined atmosphere continues into the dining room, where the beautiful bay window and period fireplace create another charming space. The door through to the conservatory extends the space for large sociable gatherings, and summer guests can spill into the garden.

Everyone gathers in the kitchen for everyday meals and chats round the table, but there is also room for everyone to have space of their own. You can settle to read in the pleasing first floor landing area, the second floor bedrooms are perfect retreats for the children, and the study provides a work base.

The large, private garden is a tranquil retreat for al fresco meals, or perhaps a glass of wine, whilst unwinding in the hot tub.

Andrew and Hazel will miss Whitaker Road, as they have appreciated its peacefulness and luxury of space. It has been very much a family home and a home that welcomes people. They are certain the next owners will be as content as they have been.

Outside - The home is accessed via a sliding electric gateway leading onto a gravelled driveway. This in turn leads to the garage which is a large space including a workshop area. The gardens wrap around the home and there is decking to the front and to the rear. The home offers privacy with trees screening the front elevation and, due to being on the corner, the home has deep gardens. To the rear of the home the decking has space for a hot tub and there are two further outbuildings.

Location - The home is situated conveniently close to Derby City Centre located off Burton Road, which is a link road through to the popular Littleover Village where many amenities can be found. Close by are Derby Grammar School and strong state schools with further private schooling being found in Repton and Ockbrook. It also offers ease of access to the University and the Hospitals of Derby. For the able, you can walk into the city in less than ten minutes and the commercial centre of Derby and Pride Park are close by. It also gives you convenience to Derby Railway Station and its mainline links into London, but is situated with ease of access onto all major link roads in and out of Derby. The location of the home is close to many country walks with Derby itself being a gateway to the magnificent Peak District National Park and all the tourist attractions it offers. There are also many large parks close by, including Markeaton Park.
