An exceptional, detached residence in extensive garden grounds with large, new, two-storey garage.

Understood to have originally been constructed during 1930’s this high quality property has more recently been extensively enlarged and re-configured so that it now provides an individual and spacious family home which most successfully combines the style, elegance and character of the original property with the requirements of modern day family living.

Retaining such features as the superb coloured Minton tiled hall floor, comprehensive extension works have resulted in the creation of a fantastic, five-bedroomed house with two formal reception rooms and a stunning ‘L’ shaped, open plan living kitchen which has direct access to the rear garden. The internal accommodation is completed at ground floor level by a guest cloakroom and also a most useful boot/utility room which houses the central heating boiler. The large master bedroom suite has a wonderful en suite shower and a separate dressing room. Extensive use of oiled oak flooring combined with underfloor heating together with a top of the range Shaker style kitchen by de Vol complements the build quality.

A particular feature of 49 Derby Road is the large detached, two-storey garage situated to the rear of the house. Having bi-fold doors to the front and a veranda open to the extensive rear garden there is, at first floor level a most useful, two-room home office, hobbies room, work room or similar which has a shower wet room.

Internal viewing is essential for full appreciation.
