Little Croft is situated in an attractive area of Derbyshire, less than half a mile south of the rural village of Longford, with good access to a number of conurbations and major roads. The A50 and M1 are both easily accessed from Longford, with Derby City centre and East Midlands Airport within easy reach. A range of services are available in the neighbouring villages, whilst a wider range of services are available in Ashbourne, Derby and Burton on Trent. Longford is on the edge of the Peak District National Park which offers wonderful landscapes and great opportunities for walking, cycling, climbing and horse riding. Carsington Water is about 14 miles away and offers water sports activities and fishing. A range of schools lie within easy reach including Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Ashbourne and a number of independent secondary schools, notably, Derby Grammar School, Derby High School and Repton School.
Little Croft is a superb, four bedroom detached new build home, offering a high-end specification across the accommodation which extends to about 2332 sq.ft. Traditionally constructed with reclaimed style bricks, beneath a Staffordshire blue pitch tiled roof and a contemporary rear glazed elevation, making the best of the stunning rural views from balconies to the master suite and bedroom two. A dramatic full height void forms a unique dining area off the spacious living kitchen and leads to the charming sitting room, with feature fireplace.
The first floor offers four bedrooms, with a stunning master suite having a dressing area and en suite. The centrepiece is the galleried landing area, which takes in the views and acts as an impressive circulation area.
The grounds are fully enclosed and take in the most delightful rural setting, with a southerly aspect to the rear. There is parking and a detached oak framed garage.
An open oak front entrance porch with pitched roof allows access into the largely open plan ground floor. A return staircase rises to the first floor galleried landing. Double doors lead through to a living kitchen which is to be completed to a high end specification with painted Shaker style units surmounted by Corian work surfaces and having a large coordinating central island. Integrated appliances include Neff double oven and warming drawer, full height fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a wine cooler. There is a useful boot room/utility room immediately off the kitchen and a guest cloakroom. The ground floor is flooded with natural light from the glazed rear elevation, having sliding doors which run from the living kitchen, into the dining area and continue into the sitting room. A feature fireplace incorporating a stove, and double doors open into the sun room.
The first floor galleried landing, which overlooks the living kitchen/dining area allows circulation to all principle rooms.
