VIDEO VIEWING AVAILABLE * EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE traditional detached residence, SYMPATHETICALLY EXTENDED and VASTLY IMPROVED to provide a STUNNING FAMILY HOME with a useful DETACHED OUTBUILDING/STUDIO, set in a delightful plot extending to approx. 0.9 ACRE on the edge of the highly sought after village of Doveridge.

Relatively rarely does an opportunity similar to this come to the market, Kamloops is a hugely impressive Victorian detached double fronted residence originally built in 1896, retaining many original features, with a useful and adaptable outbuilding having a registered smallholding status. Situated within walking distance of village amenities and sold with no upward chain involved.

Providing well proportioned and balanced family sized accommodation, appointed and presented to a superior standard throughout, the property is in turn key condition, ideal as a family home or a buyer looking to work from home, or as a multi generational residence.

Set within walking distance of amenities available in the highly desirable village of Doveridge including a village shop/post office with an attached coffee shop, First School, village hall, public house and sports club. The towns of Uttoxeter and Ashbourne are within easy commutable distance as is the A50 dual carriageway that links the M1 and M6 motorways plus the cities of Stoke on Trent and Derby.

A traditional tiled canopy porch with a part obscure glazed entrance door leads to the welcoming hall which has a feature Minton tiled floor and an original staircase rising to the first floor plus original doors to the spacious ground floor accommodation.

At the front of the property is the dining room which could easily be used as a sitting room depending on the buyers requirements, that has a deep walk-in bay window, ceiling coving and a focal fireplace with a cast surround. To the opposite side of the hall is the matching family room having the same deep bay window and coving plus a coal effect gas fire with cast surround and a decorative ceramic tiled insert.

The heart of this lovely home is without doubt the well-proportioned principal living/dining room which has windows to three sides including bi-folding doors to the rear garden all providing an abundance of natural light plus a focal fireplace with a living flame LPG fire set on a granite hearth and sandstone surround.

Glazed double doors lead to the next highly impressive feature of the property, the superior fitted dining kitchen which has an extensive range of base level units and island unit with plinth heater, a matching pantry cupboard, granite work surfaces, an inset sink unit having a Quooker tap set below a window overlooking the rear garden, integrated Bosch dishwasher and Maytag Trilogy fridge freezer, wine cooler, built-in oven and combination oven, induction hob and space for a Range stove in the chimney breast. A door returns to the hall and French doors open to the garden.

Completing the ground floor space is the utility/boot room which has fitted units and work surface with inset sink unit, built-in Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer, a freestanding oil central heating boiler, a door to the rear garden and a door to the downstairs WC.

To the first floor the lovely L-shaped landing has a front facing window and doors leading to the five good sized bedrooms all able to easily accommodate a double bed, and the superior fitted family bathroom which has a white four-piece suite incorporating both a bath and separate shower cubicle with feature tiled walls and under floor heating. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a lobby area leading to the luxury en-suite, again with under floor heating, which also has a four-piece suite incorporating both a panelled bath and a separate shower cubicle with tiled walls. The third bedroom also has an en-suite facility (under floor heating), though this time having a white three-piece suite with tiled walls.

The property benefits from an alarm system, security lighting and CCTV.

To the rear a block paved patio enjoys a good degree of privacy and offers a lovely entertaining area with a summerhouse and access to the useful outbuilding/studio. There is also access to the front via both side elevations. At the bottom of the garden a timber five bar gate leads to the enclosed paddock presently home to five Hebridean sheep and has access to a useful large timber framed shed suitable for housing animal feed or implements. A further timber five gate leads to the orchard which has a wildlife pond and over 30 fruit bearing trees plus a gate leading to the allotment area containing raised beds, greenhouse and potting shed.

To the front is a garden laid to lawn with shaped borders containing established shrubs and space for shed.

A block paved driveway with electric operated wrought iron gates provides off road parking leading to the double garage which has two up and over doors.

Attached to the garage is the extremely useful studio/office ideal for anyone working from home but also offering a huge amount of potential to be used as an annexe, subject to obtaining the necessary change of use planning permission. With its own central heating system, a recently refitted kitchen having a range of base level units with work surfaces and inset sink unit, inset hob, built-in combination oven and a Bosch slimline dishwasher. A door leads to two separate storage areas which are protected by wrought iron security panels and electric roller shutters. A further door leads to the spacious studio/office that has French doors to the rear and a side facing window. Stairs rise to the first floor where there are two well proportioned rooms and a fitted bathroom which has a white three-piece suite.
