Detached House - Derbyshire
We understand that the house was formerly part of the Chatsworth Estate although it has been in private ownership for a number of years. Our clients have considerably modernised and extended the property including putting in the indoor swimming pool and hard tennis court. The house is approached through a pair of electric gates with a stone paved driveway leading up to an area of off road parking for several cars.
Ground floor: The fully glazed front door opens into and attractive conservatory entrance hall which in turn has a door into a good sized dining room, to the rear of which is a walk-in bar/store and the stairs to the first floor. To the left of the dining room is a large drawing room featuring a fireplace with wood surround and a calor gas fire. The room is lovely and light with three windows overlooking the front garden and a pair of French doors to the rear terrace. To the right of the dining room is a large master bedroom with an impressive stone fireplace with working grate and a luxuriously fitted en suite bathroom. To the rear of the house is the kitchen, well fitted with a range of wall and base units and a central island unit all with granite work tops and with a range of appliances including electric AGA and Kupperbusch five ring halogen hob, there is a large walk-in pantry. A rear lobby has a cloakroom off and a door to the parking area and also round to a very private terraced part of the garden situated to the front of the garage building. The kitchen then opens into a dining area which is open plan with a lovely bright sitting area/garden room with a panelled study off and a door to the rear terrace. To the rear of the kitchen is a large utility/store room with fitted wall and base units which gives access to the swimming pool complex comprising: a large indoor pool with a separate Jacuzzi, gym area, changing and shower rooms. To the front of the pool are three pairs of doors opening onto a protected paved terrace with a large stone pond and fountain.
