This historical village offers an excellent range of amenities, shops and pubs and is home to one of Britain's oldest and finest public schools, founded in 1557 by Sir John Port; 12 Chestnut Way is very well positioned for access to the school. In addition, other notable schools in the area include Foremark 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. 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.
Public footpaths lead off Chestnut Way across the adjoining fields to the south and west, and also to a playing field and the village centre to the east. A great choice of public footpaths can be accessed from Repton leading across the adjoining countryside with some providing access to the River Trent and Foremark Reservoir.
12 Chestnut Way is a well presented and spacious family home which was constructed in the mid 1960's and sits within a generously sized plot of about 0.31 acres. From the tarmac driveway the front door opens into an enclosed porch with a glazed door through to a wide reception hallway. Accessed off the hall is a sitting room of 21'6"x 13'0", which has an attractive fireplace with coal effect gas fire and a very large picture window providing a lovely outlook over the garden. Double doors can be opened from the sitting room to connect the adjoining dining room, which also has a door from the hallway and French doors leading to the patio.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and incorporates a dual fuel range cooker. An external door opens onto the patio and rear garden.
There is a further spacious reception room on the ground floor which has an en suite WC and separate shower room. This room previously had a fitted kitchenette and the services are still in place. This is an ideal room to provide accommodation for a dependant relative, guest accommodation as a fifth bedroom, or as a home office space. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom accessed off the hallway.
Stairs lead from the hallway to the first floor landing. The dual-aspect master bedroom has a large range of fitted wardrobes and also an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor, one currently used as a study, and a family bathroom.

A side gate provides access to the extensive rear garden which is a great feature of the property. There is a patio area at the rear of the house and a path leading down the garden which is laid mainly to lawn and incorporates a range of conifers but also a fantastic display of Acers. The garden is south-west facing.
