54 Burton Road is situated within the highly regarded Derbyshire village of Repton. This historical village has a vibrant community with schools, shops, post office, pubs, restaurants, clubs and social activities being within walking distance of the property. The village is home to one of Britain's oldest and finest public schools,
founded in 1557 by Sir John Port. In addition, other notable schools in the area include Foremarke Hall Preparatory School, Denstone College, Derby Grammar School and Derby High School. Road communication links in the area are excellent with Birmingham, Leicester, Derby and Nottingham all within commuting distance via the A50 and A38 trunk roads. Rail links and East Midlands Airport are also within easy reach. The area offers a wide range of sporting facilities including sailing clubs at Swarkestone, Foremark Reservoir and Staunton Harold Reservoir, and motor racing at Donington Park. The Peak District National Park, with superb walks is easily accessible from Repton.
54 Burton Road is a very well presented property which dates from the early 1930's and occupies a generous plot, with the house being set back from the road and having outstanding views over countryside to the front and rear. The property, which has been well maintained by the current
owners, has lots of charm and period features, including high skirting boards and picture rails. The main entrance to the property is at the side; an open fronted porch with oak surround and front door leads through to a spacious entrance hall which has stairs rising to the first floor and a door through to an open plan living/dining room. The main focus of the living area is a wonderful brick built fireplace, with timber surround and incorporating herringbone brickwork and an open grate, which we understand is in full working order. Windows and French doors overlook the front garden and provide lots of light to the room.
The entrance through to the spacious dining area is framed by a timber surround and French doors provide further access to the front gardens. Adjoining the dining room is a breakfast kitchen,
which has a good range of wall and base units, supplemented by a splendid built-in dresser unit with cupboards and drawers and display shelving with glazed sliding doors. Beyond the kitchen
there is a utility room and a useful walk-in pantry; a door leads out to an attached brick built coal/tool shed and outside WC. From the kitchen a door leads out to an inner hallway, above which
hang the original service bells connecting to various rooms, and links the kitchen to the main reception hall. Also off the main hall there is a wonderful light, dual aspect family room, which the current owners utilise as a study and which has a wide, almost full height bay window and a glazed door to the front terrace. A cloakroom and an understairs storage cupboard complete the
ground floor. A staircase with an oak banister rises to the first floor and incorporates a half-landing with a large window providing fabulous views over surrounding countryside to the north. The
master bedroom has wonderful rural views to the south and a useful adjoining dressing room, which could be converted to an en suite, if required and subject to building regulation approval. There are four further generous bedrooms, two having walk-in cupboard space, and two bathrooms. This is a fabulous property, which enjoys wonderful views over countryside to both the front and rear.
The property is set back from the road and is enclosed by hedging to the front, providing a high degree of privacy. The long driveway has car standing space for several vehicles and leads to a
detached, brick built, oversized double garage (measuring 21’0” x 17’5”), which has power and remote controlled door. At the front of the house there is a paved area, including an enclosed seating area overlooking a large, well manicured front lawn. The gardens are very well stocked with an abundance of flowering plants, shrubs and mature trees, edged with rocks and incorporating gravelled pathways, stone steps, attractive flowered arch and a lovely paved seating area, from where to enjoy the evening sun. To the rear of the property there is a substantial brick built
workshop/gardener's store, which is suitable for a number of uses such as a home office, gym or other such use ancillary to the house, subject to any necessary consents. Circular steps lead up
to a paved seating area, ideal for outdoor dining. The rear gardens are as equally impressive as the front and comprise a raised lawn area enclosed by hedging and bordered by open countryside to the rear. There is a productive fruit and vegetable
garden and fruit trees include apple, plum, pear, damson and quince.
