ECCLESBOURNE SCHOOL CATCHMENT AREA - Victorian home of style and character dating from circa 1890 and is a truly superb family home, located off Hazelwood Road, close to William Gilbert Primary school and The Chevin golf course.

The Leys stands in an elevated and prominent position with views towards the Chevin and beyond. It is set back from the pavement edge behind a high retaining natural stone coarse wall incorporating a foregarden and benefits from a driveway and double garage.

It is constructed of brick beneath a pitched tiled roof with the front elevation having a very impressive and attractive appearance with sash period windows and stone lintels and sills.

The property is beautifully presented throughout and now offers light and spacious accommodation over 3,400 square foot. It now provides all the modern day advantages together with a wealth of character and charm with many original features throughout the home..

Duffield Village - The village of Duffield provides an excellent range of amenities including a varied selection of shops, banks, post office, library, veterinary surgery, historic St Alkmund's Church and a selection of good restaurants, medical facilities and schools including The Meadows, William Gilbert Primary Schools and the noted Ecclesbourne Secondary School. There is a regular train service into Derby City centre, which lies some 5 miles to the south of the village with Derbys outer ring road providing onward connections to principal trunk roads, the motorway network and other East and West Midlands centres. Local recreational facilities within the village include squash, tennis, cricket, football, rugby and the noted Chevin Golf course.

A further point to note is that the Derwent Valley, in which the village of Duffield nestles, is one of the few world heritage sites and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
