Chestnut Way is situated on the edge of the popular Derbyshire village of Repton. 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; No.15 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. The property overlooks a
playing field to the rear and footpaths lead to the playing field and on to the village centre to the east and into open fields to the west.
15 Chestnut Way is a very well-presented family home, which was constructed in the 1960's. The flexible accommodation extends to about 2,323 sq. ft and the current owners have carried out an
extensive and detailed scheme of improvement including significant re-wiring and re-plumbing works as well as comprehensive improvement of the accommodation which is now presented to a very high standard.
The reception hallway is attractively fitted with oak details and a parquet floor, with a door leading to an open plan sitting/dining room which is wonderfully light and spacious with a stunning herringbone oak floor throughout. There is a fireplace with a dual fuel stove (log-burner), a Brazilian slate hearth with built-in light box, and a ceramic oak-effect lintel. Display alcoves flank the fireplace, with solid oak shelving and LED lighting. A bay window overlooks the driveway and a large picture window frames a view of the garden to the rear. Bi-fold doors open to the patio area from the dining room and a serving hatch links to the kitchen.
The kitchen is fitted with base and wall mounted units incorporating an integrated Belling oven, a Lamona four ring gas hob with extractor above and space for a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. An oak pocket door with soft-close mechanism leads through to the large utility room where there are base and wall mounted units with solid wood worktops, porcelain stone wall tiling and a Belfast style sink. There is space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and free-standing fridge/freezer. A heated cloaks/storage area is a useful addition. An oak fire-door leads to the double garage and an external door leads to the rear gardens. Completing the ground floor is a WC with black and white quarry tiled floor, and a study / fourth bedroom with exposed pine floorboards.
Stairs, with oak bannisters and twisted steel spindles, lead from the hallway to the spacious first floor landing where there are large storage cupboards with handmade doors. The master bedroom is a light room of generous proportions which has built in wardrobes with mirrored aluminium sliding doors and internal lighting. An archway with feature alcoves leads into the en suite bathroom which has a free-standing roll-top bath and a large curved glass shower cubicle with Aqualisa Quartz digital drench shower. There is a large wall-mounted Roca sink with bespoke wooden wall panelling and black and white tiled flooring.
There are two further bedrooms with oak flooring, one with a built-in vanity unit with a wash hand basin and built in storage cupboard, and the second with bespoke storage cupboards. A family bathroom has polished limestone floor tiles, metal bath, Aqualisa Quartz digital shower and bath filler, wall mounted basin and built-in storage cupboard and feature LED lit alcoves.
Grounds and gardens
The property benefits from a large in-out driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles, and a limestone water feature mounted on a circular raised bed. The double garage is accessed via sliding doors. Lit flowerbeds to the front and side of the property have well-established plants including a mature acer and several mature camelias. The front boundary is defined by a low brick wall and new wooden panel fencing. There is side access to the extensive rear gardens with a large patio area including a water fountain, a recently installed circular, brick fish pond and extensive raised beds with herbs, evergreens and shrubs. An established silver birch tree with surrounding rockery garden is a key feature of the garden.
Outbuildings include a studio which is insulated and very well presented. This is currently used as a gym but could work very well as a home office. Further buildings include a summer house, and a workshop, benefitting from power connections and lighting, plus a wooden garden shed. There is also a children's play area with climbing frame. No. 15 sits on a generous plot which would easily allow for further development or extension of the property if desired, subject to the necessary consents.
