Are you looking for a spacious, luxurious, show home quality four-bedroomed detached home with beautifully established gardens and surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Derbyshire?
Opportunities like this don’t come along often, and don’t stay on the market for long. This home on Burley Lane has never been on the open market and owned by the family since 1979. The current family members owning this much loved home have extensively improved it over the past 6 years.
Follow the Lane, just off Derby Road, and pull through the red brick pillars and on to the paved driveway, past mature hedges, to reveal the stunning property standing proudly within its large plot of established, manicured gardens.
Standing within the picturesque village of Quarndon, this remarkable property really does have the best of all worlds. The sought-after village is home to a thriving local community – there is something for everyone to enjoy. Travel links are a stones throw away, and with Derby city centre less than five miles to the south and Nottingham half an hour to the east, that commute is an absolute doddle. East Midlands airport is within close proximity for those destinations further afield and all amenities (including a host of excellent schools) are easily reached. Kedleston Park and Kedleston Golf Club are a short distance away providing opportunity for all outdoor adventures within an area steeped in history.
This substantial red-brick home nestles in the centre of charming, easily maintained grounds. Park up in front of the double garage, and take in the tranquil elegance of the setting. Make your way to the porched front door, where those first impressions are well-met, and walk into the light-filled entrance hall.
The classically styled, bright and welcoming entrance hall with Karndean flooring, leads to all the principal reception rooms including sitting room, lounge, kitchen/diner, ground floor WC and utility room – it also holds a connecting door from the utility room to the garage.
From the hallway, the sitting room with its beautiful Karndean floors and classic features sits ready and waiting to house the largest of sofas for nights full of family fun and entertainment.
The lounge, with more bi-folding doors, an elegant red brick feature fireplace with wood-burning stove and room for the biggest of entertainment systems opens out onto that glorious garden beyond, bringing a real sense of the outside, in. There is plenty of room for seating. The neutral décor reflects the abundance of natural light, with sightlines in all directions.
The remarkably sized, light-filled, modern-styled kitchen/diner is absolutely first rate. Tones of white accent the contemporary units and quartz worktops to perfection and Karndean floors flow throughout. Direct access to outside (through another set of bi-folding doors) for al fresco dining and the garden beyond adds the cherry to the top of the cake, and the dining area makes this space ideal for family living. A large breakfast bar and ample storage solutions and top of the range appliances add yet more elegant, effortless flavour to the heart of this home – and the utility room (with internal access to the double garage) is a practical addition, yet also full of storage and style.
From the sitting room, the oak and glass staircase leads to the light and bright first floor landing, fully in keeping with the rest of this elegant property. Four bedrooms (including master suite) and family bathroom can be found here.
The master suite is a glorious size, extending over a large portion of the first-floor footprint. Light cascades in through the large, dual aspect windows overlooking the front and side of the property, with lovely views over the surrounding area. More than ample fitted storage solutions in the dressing room will house the best dressed of us and the spa-like ensuite bathroom enhances this superb space even further.
Bedroom two is a good size, well-proportioned double room, complete with its own ensuite shower room, and lovely views over the front of the property. Those light, neutral tones seen throughout this home give a great sense of flow and ensure this room is a cosy, calm place to bed down for the night.
Bedrooms three and four share views through large windows to the front and rear of the property. They are classic, elegant and brimming with natural light, making them perfect for children’s’ bedrooms or extra office space. A fully tiled family bathroom with separate shower and soaker tub also serves this level.
The games room/office, with its feet in the eaves and brimming with skylights is located on the second floor. It is perfect for a number of uses – a craft or music room perhaps, or a home office, games/play room or homework space – the options are endless in this practical, quiet space with views over the garden and beyond.
Take the stairs back down to the ground floor and pop outside to find a host of treasures just waiting to be discovered…
The outside space around this home has to be experienced to be truly believed. It is simply lovely. This large plot is linked to the house by paths and patios meandering around the property, past the well-maintained lawns and decked areas. Low maintenance and lush - simply mow and admire nature at its finest.
The outdoor living room sits surrounded by a wide decked area, just right for sun loungers and outdoor entertainment - and with direct sightlines into the reception rooms and kitchen/diner, it is just the ticket for keeping an eye on everyone whilst making the most of this luxurious addition. A host of boundary-lining trees provide privacy, contentment and a real feeling of tranquillity within this incredible family property. There’s even room for a hot tub! What’s not to love?
