Holme Point lies in a secluded position within the heart of the popular Derbyshire village of Repton. This historical village has a vibrant community with many pubs, restaurants, clubs and social activities and 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. 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. From the property a rear gate opens on to a public footpath, which leads to the village centre.
Holme Point is a most impressive property which was very thoughtfully re-designed by the current owner in 2012, to create a high specification, spacious family home with very well presented
flexible accommodation. The property is accessed via the spacious, underfloor heated living kitchen which is the hub of the house. There is a good range of hand painted timber wall and base units, including a glazed light oak dresser unit, Fisher and Paykel oven and Neff microwave, steam oven and fridge freezer. A large island unit is surmounted by quartz work surfaces and incorporates a De Dietrich induction hob, sink with kettle tap and dishwasher. At one end of the kitchen is a dining area and at the other end is a seating area with another fitted glazed oak dresser.
From the kitchen there is a utility room with plumbing for washing machine and a stable door to the garden. Oak bi-fold doors open out on to the rear terrace leading to a small Spring garden, feature tiered pond and fruit and vegetable garden. Also from the kitchen half glazed oak sliding pocket doors lead through to a delightful sitting room. On either side and above the doors are fitted book shelves. There is an impressive York stone fireplace with an electric Gazco stove. A half glazed door leads through to a spacious hallway with door to a WC and small walkin airing cupboard. A lovely oak staircase leads to the first floor.
A door from the hallway leads to an area which is currently being used as a generous ground floor master suite. It would also lend itself to use as a ‘granny flat’ or semi-independent accommodation if needed, as it has its own front and rear doors and has been designed with wheelchair access in mind. This area comprises an inner hallway with doors leading to a fully tiled wet room with underfloor heating and plumbing for a washing machine. Half glazed double doors open into a generous reception room, which is currently being used as a bedroom. There is an impressive contemporary Opty-mist electric flame effect fire set in to the wall, a window overlooking the front garden and a door through to a dressing room/bedroom which has a range of rails and shelves, a bath enclosed within an alcove and a fitted dressing table with vanity basin. Whilst currently utilized as a dressing room, this room could be put to use as an office or bedroom.
On the first floor there is a spacious landing area leading to a well proportioned master bedroom, which has a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom. Planning permission granted in 2012 (and subsequently implemented) included the addition of a fourth bedroom on the first floor, which the vendors did not carry out but is an option for any purchaser if required.
The property is approached via a tarmac driveway with wrought iron gates off Mitre Drive which leads to a gravelled parking area for at least four vehicles. The driveway is bordered by a wall to one side and is surrounded by an interesting and colourful selection of trees and shrubs. Dividing the parking area from the garden is an archway and trellis fence, covered all Summer with roses, clematis and flowering shrubs. This leads through to the front garden,which has been extremely well designed by the current owner and has matured very nicely to create a wonderful display of colour and foliage throughout the year. The flower beds are interspersed with gravel pathways, box hedging and lovely seating areas, from which to enjoy this sheltered and sunny garden.
There is access to the rear of the property from both sides of the house. The rear gardens are as equally impressive as the front and it is evident that a lot of time and care has gone into the design. Gravelled pathways pass raised beds, including a wide range of vegetable and fruit beds, trellising and iron arches with climbing plants, and a shrubbery. There is a lovely summer house which overlooks a formal pond with central water feature. A gate leads out on to the adjacent footpath, which provides access to the centre of the village. The total plot area is approximately 0.28 acres.
