The Crescent is situated in a popular residential area within the ancient Derbyshire village of Repton. All properties on The Crescent have a delightful outlook over an area of public open space, known as The Green, which provides a lovely area for games and relaxation.
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, Repton, founded in 1557 by Sir John Port. The Crescent is very well positioned for access to the school and to the village Primary School. In addition, other notable schools in the area include Repton Prep, Denstone College, Derby Grammar School and Derby High School. Repton Prep is just 2.5 miles away and St Wystan’s Preparatory School is located in Repton.
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, but the village itself also benefits from connection to a network of footpaths.
Repton is very well placed for accessing the major road networks including the A38 and the A50, which links the M6 with the M1. A mainline railway station is easily accessible at East Midlands Parkway (approx. 18 miles) with a journey time of 1 hour 25 minutes to London St Pancras. The cities of Derby, Nottingham and Leicester are all within striking distance.
1 The Crescent offers beautifully presented and versatile accommodation over three floors. Since purchasing the property from new in 2016, the Vendors have continued to improve and maintain it to a very high standard to create an outstanding family home.
The front door opens into a reception hallway which has stairs rising to the first floor and wood effect Karndean flooring which continues through to a fabulous open-plan kitchen, dining area and living space. The kitchen has an impressive range of fitted units, incorporating a butler’s pantry/drinks cabinet with shelving, a substantial island unit with stainless steel sink within an Apollo Slab Tech solid work surface. A full height unit to one wall has space for a large fridge/freezer and bookshelves. Within the island there is also an integrated under-counter fridge which can be used in addition to where the main fridge would be located. There are additional cupboards and drawers below, together with a Neff dishwasher, double bin cupboard and three drop lights above. Further built-in appliances, all by Neff, include two ‘slide and hide’ ovens, an induction hob and extractor, a combination/microwave oven and deep warming and proving drawers. Bi-fold doors lead out to the rear garden. The Karndean flooring continues through to the dining area. Adjoining the dining area is an attractive living room which has a deep square bay window overlooking the front of the property and The Green. An inner hallway from the kitchen leads to a WC and a large utility room, which has further cupboards, a sink unit, space for a washing machine and tumble drier, a store cupboard, and a door out to the rear garden.
Off the reception hallway is a playroom/snug with glazed door and a separate study. A wall with a window separates these two rooms. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
On the first floor, at the front of the house there are two double bedrooms, one having an en suite shower room and to the rear an inner alcove/recess with storage cupboard gives way to two further double bedrooms, one with two double wardrobes and an en suite shower room. These two rooms would be suitable as a master suite, with the second double bedroom being fitted for use as a dressing room if required. There is a family bathroom with a bath, twin wash hand basins with drawers under, a separate shower cubicle and ceramic non-slip floor tiles with underfloor heating. On the landing is a useful linen cupboard.
Stairs continue to the second floor to further double bedrooms and an en suite shower room. Again, this floor would be suitable for use as a master suite with dressing room if preferred.
At the front of the house a wide gravelled driveway enclosed by attractive metal fencing provides parking space for several vehicles. A canopied porch with oak pillars on brick plinths frames the front door. A pathway at the side of the house leads through to the rear garden. The rear garden has a lawn and patio area with grey Indian sandstone paving.
