Seller Insight - Coton Wood Lodge is a lovely detached home sitting within the original grounds of Coton Wood Grange and now offering an independent home with is own access and grounds.
The cottage, nestled in a private plot, was converted from an old stable block in 2009, say the owners. Its a great size and very well appointed, and its been ideal for visiting guests, but we always thought this could make a fabulous independent home for someone and now it is time for us to move on, that is what we are creating.
The plan is to add a timber-framed storm porch which will give the home a lovely distinctive appearance from the front and we are happy to construct a single timber framed garage if a buyer needs one.
It is intended the home will have four bedrooms all finished to a high specification. When we built the main home and this annexe back in 2000, we really designed and built everything to the highest specification. The conversion when completed was a great use of the space as we were able to create a fantastic lounge and separate kitchen and with vaulted ceilings, these rooms are really spacious. The owners continue Already having 2 bedrooms the option of creating 2 more bedrooms and bathroom to the rear of the home was an obvious choice and this is simple to create with a stylish glass atrium leading to the rear wing.
Over the years we have built many properties and the lodge will make a very special home and we intend to continue with the high-grade finish to all the boundaries and landscaping.
The house will enjoy this wonderfully secluded location too, its incredibly peaceful here and the views are something else, say the owners, however weve never felt isolated. Theres a nice feeling of community within the village, nearby Uttoxeter and Ashbourne have all the shops and amenities to cater for day-to-day needs, theres also a mainline station at Uttoxeter and were almost equidistant between the M1 and M6 so its relatively easy to get just about anywhere.
Outside - The home has its own gated driveway leading to a spacious parking area to the front. There is an option of a timber-framed garage which can be agreed via separate negotiation. There is then a pathway to the front entrance storm porch. To the rear of the home, there is a decked terrace accessed from the lounge and generous formal gardens offering privacy.
Location - The home is conveniently located off the A515, which links to the A50 and A38, making Derby, Uttoxeter and Stoke all within easy reach, and via the M6 and M1 motorways, even Manchester is within striking distance. The home is adjacent to the village of Boylestone which features a local church, public house and high-class restaurant, and most of the villages surrounding the home have further public houses. The closest large town is Ashbourne where a full range of amenities are on hand. For schooling, there are excellent state schools, and for those looking for private schooling, Abbotsholme, Denstone, Derby Grammar and High School and Repton are all within easy reach.
Services - Oil Fired Central Heating, Calor Gas Supply, Mains water and Electric - Shared Septic tank with neighbour
Agents Note - The home will be modified between exchange and completion by the current owners based on the specification suggested. If buyers are wanting to amend specification then please feel free to discuss. There is also the option of an additional garage to be agreed by separate negotiation.
