Outside, the property benefits from an impressive large double garage, adjoining garden store, a further two attached outbuildings (offering potential for conversion), together with sweeping driveway to a large forecourt area affording ample car standing, extensive lawned side garden, landscaped rear garden with stream to the rear, and attached pony paddock.


The property enjoys a rural setting on the fringe of the villages of Twyford and Barrow-on-Trent, approximately eight-miles south of Derby city centre, yet is within minutes driving distance of the A50, which in turn affords easy access to the A38 and M1 motorway for commuting throughout the region.
