This five-bedroom Victorian home in Duffield Road, Derby, has gone on the market for £895,000.
The grand property, which dates back to 1850, is made of traditional red brick and features gorgeous original sash windows with stone lintels and sills.
With a long, sweeping driveway set back from the main road, and walls on all sides, this detached home offers enough privacy to make you feel tucked away from the hustle and bustle.
There is also a self-contained flat which is perfect for guests or even to be rented out to earn some extra income.
Upon entering the main hallway on the ground floor visitors will find four reception rooms – a lounge, dining room, sitting room and a family room – all but one with original exposed wooden floorboards. The hallway floor itself boasts original Victorian Minton tiles.
The most spacious of all the ground floor rooms is the lounge, which features a stone, open-grate fireplace and two impressive floor-to-ceiling windows looking out into the garden.
As in many of the rooms the lounge also has cast-iron radiators which add to the historic feeling of the home.
The sitting room, which has a tiled floor, is fitted with tall in-built bookshelves and currently doubles up as an office. A desk built into the wall in the corner offers a perfect spot to buckle down.
The dining room has plenty of space for a big dining table and the large bay windows fill the room with natural light.
And the family room, which is being used by the current owners as a music room, is equally spacious and is ready to be transformed into whatever your heart desires.
The large and modern kitchen is a surprising element of this Victorian house. With bespoke fitted units in an attractive grey and a spacious island at the centre it’s easy to forget that the property dates back more than 150 years.
There are also two Belfast sinks, an Aga oven, a built-in wine cooler, LED mood lights and underfloor heating to bring this kitchen bang up to date.
Upstairs, via an elegant wooden staircase and past stained-glass windows, you will find four double bedrooms and the house’s self-contained flat.
There are also two bathrooms, both will roll-top baths, one of which could be converted into an en-suite for the master bedroom by changing the position of the door.
The flat, which is accessible via a separate entrance, has its own kitchen/diner, double bedroom and bathroom.
Outside to the rear of the home is an impressive walled garden, complete with a terrace and a lit decking area, which leads to a charming brick summer house.
