Property Description

A TRULY MAGNIFICENT INDIVIDUAL 1920'S FAMILY RESIDENCE of distinctive appearance in The Lutyens, Arts and Crafts style and set on a SUPERB GARDEN PLOT OF APPROXIMATELY 1.2 ACRES close to the church at the centre of the POPULAR AND HISTORIC VILLAGE.

St Mary's Close must surely rank as one of the finest homes in the area, and has been carefully updated by the present vendor to deliver comfortable and contemporary accommodation ideal for the modern growing family.

Rolleston on Dove is widely regarded as a prime village with an interesting history linked to The Mosley Estate and being well-served by local amenities in addition to excellent road links for the major Midlands centres, along with excellent state and private schools including Foremark and Repton.

An enclosed entrance vestibule provides access via a large panelled door to the principle reception hall having original and attractive herringbone parquet flooring, stairs off with half landing and a guest cloakroom including a separate cloaks area.

The attractive lounge has plenty of character with a deep panelled inglenook housing a dressed stone fireplace with open grate and beam over, complemented by a beamed ceiling and dual aspect windows to the rear overlooking the magnificent garden.

The well-proportioned separate dining room has a stripped pine floor with stone mullioned window, again to the south garden, and a 1920's open fireplace for authenticity. There is an additional third reception room ideal as a separate sitting or family room with a dressed stone fireplace housing a log burner, windows overlooking the rear garden and a French door to the sunny patio area.

The family breakfast kitchen is by Creative Interiors of Derby and was refitted in 2017 featuring a plentiful range of base and wall units, surmounted by Quartz work tops, inset sink having a chrome mixer tap and Quooker instant hot water tap. A black three oven gas fired Aga is set within an illuminated and tiled recess with an additional electric oven module to the side and attractive timber over mantle. Additionally, there is an integrated dishwasher and fridge, LED ceiling lighting and a quality tiled floor.

Off the kitchen is a useful utility/rear hall which is fitted to match the kitchen again with base units and Quartz work tops including an inset Belfast sink with mixer tap, appliance spaces under with plumbing for an automatic washing machine, window and door to the front driveway and a very useful walk-in boiler/store room having a gas fired boiler and shelving. A door leads to the rear opening out onto an attractive covered Loggia with quarry tiled flooring, and access to the garden.

The first floor impresses immediately with a spacious and light landing incorporating a tall window over the stairs which feature a lovely oak balustrade having barley twist spindles and a further picture window to the front. Access if also afforded to a very large loft space via a drop down ladder.

The master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect principally to the rear and as with the other principle bedrooms has a lovely southerly aspect over the garden. This is also served by a high quality contemporary en suite with a walk-in tiled shower with glazed screen, wc and wall hung wash hand basin together with tiled flooring and surrounds, LED lighting, chrome heated towel rail, and window to the side.

Guest bedroom two has twin built-in wardrobes and incorporates the attractive stone mullioned bay window to the rear. In additional there are three further attractive family bedrooms. The bathroom is again beautifully appointed with a contemporary style suite comprising a centre fill bath with tiled surround with shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin, a separate tiled shower with glazed enclosure and chrome heated towel rail. Adjacent to the bathroom is a separate and highly convenient cloakroom/wc fitted to match.

The property is concealed within its own mature grounds with gated access off Church Road to a curving driveway leading to excellent parking and manoeuvring space along with a detached garage and is screened with ornate gardens and stone walling.

The grounds extend to a surprising 1.2 acres in all and comprise extensive lawns and patio areas with attractive borders and mature tree screening including a number of fine Cedar of Lebanon, some of which are subject to preservation orders.

The principle aspect is to the south west with the house designed to overlook the impressive and private gardens taking the maximum advantage from this most pleasant aspect and position.
