Property Description

This individual detached home is for sale for the first time since being built in the 1970s and as such offers a rare opportunity to acquire a family home with one of the largest plots in this highly regarded road. There is huge potential offered by what is already a substantially proportioned house that has been very well maintained over the years but that will benefit from updating. Subject to the relevant permissions being obtained, there is scope to extend and integrate the lower garage into the house, still leaving a detached double garage and an enormous drive. The current accommodation includes four large bedrooms, one of which has a full en-suite bathroom, a dining room and a 24ft double aspect sitting room, a breakfast kitchen and a cloakroom. The exterior space is one of the features that sets this house apart, having grounds of just under 1/2 acre (not measured), an extensive block paved drive, a detached double garage and a large integral garage. The south facing rear gardens have been beautifully maintained over the years and offer scope for further changes and use. We anticipate strong interest in this property and recommend viewing at the earliest opportunity.

Front Garden
The property has twin entrances from Hallams Lane, the first of which is at the lower side and is via double wrought iron gates with stone pillars. On passing through the gates, you are met by an extremely large herring bone patterned block paved drive with stone walls and brick edging. To each side of the drive are well established rockeries and herbaceous borders with an astonishing variety of plants, shrubs and trees. The driveway rises to an area beneath the house where there is a large integral garage with a roller shutter door. The garage has a concrete base and a large double cupboard that contains the central heating boiler. It is worth noting that the original design of the house made provision for a staircase from this garage that could arrive in the entrance hall to the main house above.
To the side of the first driveway a further drive ascends the hill to the second entrance. This is a substantial area with herring bone patterned block paving and surrounding Bulwell stone walls. There is ample space here for parking 6 or more cars. The very well surrounding flower and rose beds provide an opportunity to gain further privacy and a wrought iron gate gives access to the back garden. Also on this upper driveway is a detached brick built double garage with an electrically operated roller shutter door and a side pedestrian door. The lower garage also has light power and water. The width of the upper garage is 20'6 and the depth is approx. 20'10.

Back Garden
Without question, the plot and in particular the south facing back garden is one of the selling features of this property. Extending to approx. 1/3 acre(not measured) this is an extremely established and well cared for garden that has been lovingly tended for many years. Directly to the rear of the property is a large paved terrace area with exterior lighting and an electrically operated sun canopy. Extending from this terrace area is a further paved area behind the house that returns to the side and gives access to the rear of the detached garage. Throughout the garden are raised stone flower beds which, coupled with the gravel filled borders offer an array of all year round interest. There are numerous blossoming trees, conifers and leylandii as well as a large, shaped lawn. Screened behind a curved conifer hedge is a very generous vegetable garden that has apple trees, paved pathways, a greenhouse and potting shed. (NB this is the section for which there may be the potential to obtain planning permission.)

There is security lighting throughout the garden and surrounding the building, outside water taps and motion sensor lights.

Garage space for 3 cars.
