“Set in a glorious position on the outskirts of the historic and highly sought after village of Repton. The renowned Repton School, founded in 1557, sits within the centre of the village which has a wealth of period houses and buildings.” Estate agents say another selling point of the home is its fantastic transport links, Staffordshire Live reports.
The spokesman added: “”The village lies to the south of the nearby A50, which provides excellent access to a wide range of surrounding regional centres, including Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and South via the nearby A38 to Birmingham. There are a good range of local facilities and amenities within the village itself.”
The front door of the house leads to the kitchen diner and snug, featuring a bespoke fitted kitchen with matching wall and base units, a straight edge solid wooden worktops, Belfast sink with mixer tap over, integrated fridge freezer, an induction hob, an electric oven and grill above it and an electric AGA.
To the left of the kitchen diner is a “cosy snug that provides an ideal space to relax” with a log-burning stove and exposed brick surround and mantle piece above. A door from the kitchen leads into the utility room which has a back door leading to a pathway for the driveway and garden, with a further internal door leading into the sitting room.
The sitting room has a wealth of character with the log burning stove being the focal point of the room. Double doors lead through to a garden room and French doors leading out onto the landscaped garden.
Upstairs it has three bedrooms with a three-piece shower room and a separate family bathroom. The main bedroom spans the width of the home, looking out over the countryside. The adjacent shower room comprises a walk-in shower, low level WC and wash hand basin with mixer tap and vanity unit below.
There are two further bedrooms towards the front of the property having double glazed windows. A family bathroom completes the first floor comprising a roll top bath with handset and mixer tap, low level WC and wash hand basin with a mixer tap over.
The estate agent added: “The outside of the home has a generous block paved driveway to the side that leads to a double garage with up and over electric doors. From the driveway a pedestrian gateway leads into a landscaped patio area, enclosed via a low brick built wall, providing far reaching views to the rear aspect.
“To the other side of the property there is a lovely garden with an immaculate lawn, matured flower beds and seating area. Views from the seating area can be enjoyed of breathtaking countryside and really is one of the show pieces of this home.”
