About the property
SUPERB POTENTIAL FOR AN EXTENSION/LOFT CONVERSION (Subject to Planning) - Beautiful three bedroom bay fronted semi-detached residence with extensive driveway, detached garage and delightful garden, occupying a fabulous plot in Darley Abbey Village backing on to the River Derwent - No Upward Chain
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a beautiful bay fronted semi-detached residence on the highly sought after Folly Road in Darley Abbey Village. The property is sold with the benefit of no upward chain and as with other properties on the road offers excellent potential for a large extension/loft conversion to create a larger family home (subject to necessary planning consents).
Currently the property is double glazed and gas centrally heated with porch, hallway, sitting room to front with bay window, dining room, breakfast kitchen, garden room/occasional bedroom with wet room off. The first floor semi-galleried landing gives access to three bedrooms and a shower room.
A true feature of this sale is the impressive plot on which the property stands, set back behind an extensive driveway runs down the side of the property and leads to a detached single garage. The rear garden is a beautiful addition to the sale measuring approximately 260 feet long and is extremely well-kept and maintained over the years and would ideally suit a family. The garden backs directly onto the River Derwent and benefits from fishing and mooring rights.
The property's located at the heart of Darley Abbey Village which is extremely sought after due to a thriving community and excellent selection of restaurants/bars/café in the Darley Abbey Mills area of the village. There are some beautiful walks through Darley Park and around the River Derwent. The village also offers a highly regarded primary school, church, village shop and bus service. Derby city centre is within walking distance.
