The main garden is mainly laid to lawn with a combination of stone wall and hedge boundaries, herbaceous borders, mature trees and a lovely stone paved patio. There is also a second south facing and gravelled garden area enclosed by a combination of laurel and privet hedging and with views over the fields making the perfect spot to enjoy an evening glass of wine.

The village of Swarkestone is a small picturesque village just under six miles south of Derby and about three miles from the Georgian town of Melbourne. The ancient bridge and causeway date back to medieval times and span the River Trent; and with 29 arches and at just under a mile long, is believed to be the longest in England. The river is popular with local fishermen for barbel, roach, dace and the occasional pike. The Trent and Mersey canal is less than a mile away and is frequented by both boatmen and hikers alike. The local sailing club (with excellent facilities for disabled members) can be reached by car within a few minutes. Nearby is access to Route 6 of the National Cycle Network. The ever popular Chellaston Academy for boys and girls is conveniently placed just over two miles away. There is easy access to the A50 and onwards to the M1 and M42 motorways.

Tenure: Freehold (purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).
Services: LPG oil tank. Drainage is via a septic tank shared with neighbours. Mains water and electricity are believed to be connected to the property but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.
