Blending traditional with contemporary Cofton House is a handsome period home set over three floors. Full of history and charm, this spacious home offers five large double bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a feature open plan contemporary bespoke live in dining kitchen with large living room and conservatory off, all set within private landscaped gardens. NO CHAIN.

This three-storey home is part Georgian with later Victorian additions, all of which add up to create an architecturally resplendent property. It has been the much-loved home of the current owners over the past 37 years and they have carefully restored and created a warm family home blending period features with contemporary additions.

Location: It lies in a prominent position within the heart of the pretty hamlet of Kings Newton, which lies on the outskirts of Melbourne. Unlike many villages in Derbyshire, Kings Newton is not mentioned in the Domesday book and is a "new town". Originally the hamlet was called Newton but the prefix of Kings was added to differentiate it from other Newtons in the surrounding counties. After the successful campaign at the Battle of Sobraon, Henry Hardinge was created Viscount Hardinge of Lahore and of King’s Newton in Derbyshire, with a pension of £3000 for three lives. Why this small village was chosen for his honour is unclear.

Melbourne is a small Georgian market town in South Derbyshire about 8 miles south of Derby and 8 miles from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Meandering through the narrow streets is an absolute must, marvelling at the array of boutique shops, deli’s and numerous pubs and restaurants, Amalfi White being highly recommended. For families, schools and leisure pursuits are in abundance and for the commuter, access to Derby, the M42, M1 and A50 are all just the other side of Swarkestone Bridge.

Accommodation: Stone steps lead you up to a black panelled classic entrance door that opens into a wide reception hallway with beautiful staircase and Derbyshire Horton stone flagged floor. The reception room on your left is a charming oak floored sitting room with lovely fireplace and dual aspect sash windows with original feature shutters.

Returning to the hallway, on your right is a glorious and welcoming formal dining room with open fireplace at its focal point. Again, there are the sash windows with original shutters alongside deep original skirting boards and a picture rail.

A beautiful contemporary addition to Cofton House is the outstanding luxury ‘live in’ family kitchen, which seamlessly combines both kitchen, dining and living spaces. Planned by Micheal Holden design It features a German Rational luxury bespoke kitchen offset with deep American walnut countertops. There is oodles of storage, a central island with breakfast bar and Integral appliances comprise; a five-ring gas hob with stunning floating extractor hood over, oven, microwave combi oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher.

Floating ceiling panels make a striking feature and the inset downlights flood this room with light. The dining area of the kitchen has an open fireplace and French double doors leading directly out onto the garden. This kitchen is further complimented by the adjoining conservatory that overlooks the beautiful garden; a perfect spot for the Sunday newspaper and a cup of coffee.

Further enhancing the open plan living the vendors have opened the kitchen into the adjoining fabulous oak floored living room which has at its focal point open fireplace, sash window with original shutters, alongside deep original skirting boards and a picture rail.

Ascending the beautiful staircase and off the generous landing you will find three double bedrooms, all of quite some size, along with a shower room.

Particular attention must be drawn to the master suite and master bathroom; thoroughly modern in design with wall mounted panels and a whole bank of fitted wardrobes running seamlessly along one wall. The adjacent en-suite is stunning; fully tiled and featuring a freestanding curved contemporary bath, wet room style shower area and a bespoke fitted vanity unit along one wall with full height mirrors over, inset WC and two wash hand bowls above.

On the top floor are two further large double bedrooms set within the attic space and a modern shower room with oversized shower, WC and wash hand basin.

Outside the property has plentiful parking afforded by the stone block paved driveway.

Wrought iron gates lead you into the beautifully landscaped rear garden with steps leading up to a neat lawn with mature planted borders surround. The garden enjoys a fabulous degree of privacy along with a south westerly aspect and features two patio areas, one lower and one ‘secret’ patio area set behind mature hedging with a raised koi carp pond adjacent.

This stunning property really must be viewed.
