An immaculately presented village house with
outbuildings and fabulous rural views.
Longford House is situated within the village of Kirk Langley. The village offers a village hall, church, a highly regarded primary school and a public house. A good range of local amenities can be found in the nearby village of Mickleover, with a wider range of shops and facilities being available in the city of Derby, about 6 miles away.
The area has excellent commuter links with good access to a number of conurbations and major roads. The A52 provides links to the A38 and A50 trunk roads, leading to the M1 and M6 motorways. Mainline train links are available at Derby and East Midlands Parkway. East Midlands Airport lies approximately 20 miles to the south.
Kirk Langley lies about 9 miles from Ashbourne, on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The area offers wonderful landscapes and great opportunities for walking, cycling, climbing and horse riding. Carsington Water is about 11 miles away and offers water sports activities and fishing. A range of schools lie within easy reach including a primary school within the village, Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Ashbourne and Ecclesbourne School catchment area. There are a number of independent secondary schools, notably Derby Grammar School, Derby High School and Repton School.
Longford House is an exceptionally well presented four bedroom detached, character village home, having been updated and extended in recent years and extending to about 2,368 sq.ft. Dating back to the late 18th century and remodelled in the Victorian era, character features are evident throughout and blend with modern touches to include a superb garden room with glazed apex ceiling.
Longford House stands within the most stunning rural setting, with views to the front and the rear, which is south facing. The grounds extend to circa 0.50 acres in all and boast an in/out drive to the front, mature lawned gardens and an excellent range of detached brick outbuildings, offering a double garage, storage and first floor studio/home office.
Approached from the front, an entrance hallway, with stairs rising to the first floor and tiled floor which continues throughout much of the ground floor, allows access to the two spacious reception rooms, both of which have fireplaces. One is believed to date back to the Arts & Crafts era and houses a multi fuel stove and the other features an open fire.
The dining kitchen is well appointed, with a good range of base and wall units, beneath quartz work surfaces and having a range of integral appliances, to include a double oven, which supports the Aga. There is a superb garden room, which flows effortlessly into the kitchen area, with glazed apex and patio doors flooding the space with natural light. There is an engineered oak floor with underfloor heating beneath. Off the kitchen is the utility room, which is fitted with a comprehensive range of units beneath quartz work surfaces. There is a rear hallway, with a second staircase rising to the first floor and a modern shower room, with walk in double unit.
Rising to the first floor from the front entrance hallway, there is a spacious galleried landing, with picture window taking in the delightful views and flooding the space with natural light. To the front are two symmetrical bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and bespoke built-in wardrobes. At the rear, there is the family bathroom, fitted with a four piece suite, to include claw feet roll top bath. The study area/bedroom five allows access to the two remaining bedrooms and landing to the rear staircase.
