About the property
A WONDERFUL PERIOD RESIDENCE OFFERING EXCEPTIONAL, VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION WITH FABULOUS 6 CAR GARAGE COMPLEX, QUIETLY SITUATED IN THE CONSERVATION AREA IN THE HEART OF THE HISTORIC AND MUCH FAVOURED VILLAGE OF REPTON
This substantial period property offering exceptional versatile accommodation is situated in a quiet location in its fabulous walled gardens and grounds, yet minutes' walk away from the amenities within the village. This rare opportunity to acquire such an impressive home with its superb garage complex is not to be missed.
The property believed to have been built in circa 1840 has been skilfully extended and upgraded under the direction of the current owners creating accommodation that is suitable for modern families with extended dining kitchen incorporating a garden/family room area, modern principal bedroom suite with en suite wet room, underfloor heating and thermal solar panels, yet allowing for further updating.
The gated approach leads into the extensive driveway giving access to the garage complex and to the residence. The entrance to the property is via a glazed porch leading into a magnificent dining hallway with an original oak plank floor. Oak display and storage cabinets flank the chimney breast which has a Derbyshire stone fire surround with tiled insets and cast-iron fire grate inset. Stairs leads off to the first floor and doors give access to the cellar, the lounge, sitting room, kitchen and rear lobby. The formal sitting room enjoys views of the garden with period French doors leading out and sash windows giving views. There is a marble fire surround with period tiling and cast-iron grate. The lounge area again offers a Derbyshire stone fire surround but with the convenience of a living flame effect gas fire inset and French doors leads into the Orangery. Here you can enjoy the garden in the cooler days or come into the shade on warmer days. There is a quarry tiled floor, Velux windows and French doors giving access out into the garden.
The dining kitchen with garden room is at the heart of the house. The kitchen has Jerusalem limestone flooring and is fitted with a superb range of period storage cupboards with a modern blend of period style cabinets. A large island has a hardwood worktop with stainless steel sink inset with a Zip tap with hot and boiling water over and an insinkerator. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, there is space for a fridge freezer and inset within a chimney breast is space for a range style stove. A sash window looks out into the garden. Oak flooring continues through to the dining area with the Jerusalem limestone flooring continuing into the seating area, both having the advantage of underfloor heating in these spaces. The seating area has beautiful oak window casements and views of the garden and giving access to the terrace. The dining area doors lead out to the rear lobby and into the utility and pantry room. Here there is space for a washing machine, base cupboards and ample shelving for storage.
The rear lobby is part of the modern extension and has a ceiling lantern, glazed doors leading out to the terrace and kitchen garden beyond. Doors lead off to the hobbies room, principal suite, plant and drying room and the guest cloakroom which is fitted with a French suite comprised of a hand wash basin with high back and period style high level w.c with oak seat inset into a cast iron stand. The ground floor principal bedroom would make a great space for elderly relatives as a guest suite or teenage hideaway. There are windows looking out to the side and front aspect, there are built in wardrobes with sliding doors and a modern ensuite wet room with underfloor heating, dual head shower with glazed side screen and a fitted high level w.c and hand basin within vanity units. There are attractive tiled surrounds. The hobbies room or again a guest bedroom has French doors to terrace and windows looking out over the garden and a vanity sink basin.

The first-floor principal suite has a window out with views of the gardens, lots of original storage cupboards and en suite shower room with a coloured suit that is equipped with a tiled shower enclosure, w.c. bidet and wash hand basin. The three further bedrooms all offer ample space for bedroom furniture and all offer views of the garden and grounds.

There is a very useful timber carport with storage and an amazing garage complex that also incorporates a shower room (to be finished by purchaser) and two garden stores. The Thermal solar panels are also housed on the roof here. There are five double oak doors giving access for each car space, power, light and ample storage .This does have the potential to be converted into offices or an additional annex subject to the relevant permissions.
These are beautiful walled gardens with sweeping lawn, a plethora of flowers, shrubs and trees offering all year-round colour and interest. There are formal garden areas, wild garden areas, a useful kitchen garden, fruit trees, and patio areas to entertain from. It is a real gardener's paradise.
