The spacious interior of the main residence has been the subject of structural extension and some improvement over recent years, but offers scope for further refurbishment to individual taste. Having the benefit of gas central heating and double glazing, the accommodation briefly comprises: -
bungalow, recessed Entrance Porch, Reception Hall, Inner Hall, Cloaks/WC, rear Lounge, Conservatory, separate Dining Room, Breakfast Kitchen, side Porch/Utility Room, Four Double Bedrooms, Study, main Bathroom, and modern Shower Room. Annex, separate Entrance Hall, Sitting Room, Double Bedroom, and modern Shower Room. Outside, secluded gardens, sweeping driveway, Double Garage, and ample car standing spaces.

We understand that the original bungalow would have been constructed in or around 1965, from land originally purchased from the adjoining Kedleston Estate, with an extension to the north side in 1975, together with the conservatory extension in the 1980's, and in 2007 the annex extension. Therefore, the property affords a high degree of versatility, with an extremely spacious bungalow and adjoining annex, which is ideal for dependent relative accommodation or guest accommodation. The property has seen improvement in recent years, with the installation of extensive UPVC double glazing, modern shower rooms to the bungalow and annex, yet offers scope for further refurbishment and structural extension, subject to requirement and obtaining the relevant permissions and approvals.
The main bungalow accommodation can be accessed via the recessed entrance porch to the reception hall, with inner hall, cloaks/WC, generous rear lounge with patio doors, approximate west-facing conservatory, separate dining room, breakfast kitchen, side porch/utility room with internal access to the annex, inner hall, master double bedroom, double bedroom two, double bedrooms three and four, study
ursery, main bathroom, and modern shower room.
The annex accommodation can be accessed internally via the main residence, or has a separate access via the entrance hall, with spacious sitting room, double bedroom, inner hall, kitchen, and modern shower room.
Outside, the property is accessed via sweeping driveway approach serving numbers 73 and 75 Church Road, with double garage, ample car standing spaces to the front of the bungalow, together with mature grounds of over 1/2-acre, enjoying westerly views to the rear over open countryside.
The property enjoys an enviable premier residential location, affording an elevated position off Church Road, within the Village of Quarndon which lies approximately four-miles north of Derby city centre. The property benefits from a secluded location approached via a private drive, and takes full advantage of the wide rear boundary with its delightful westerly aspects to take in the views over the Kedleston Estate farmland, and countryside beyond. Quarndon offers excellent schooling with the highly regarded Curzon Primary School located within the Village, and is also within the catchment area of the highly regarded Ecclesbourne Secondary School in Duffield. The property enjoys the Kedleston Estate to the rear, and is close to Kedleston Hall, Kedleston Park Golf Club, and yet is within minutes driving distance of Derby city centre or the nearby suburb of Allestree for a comprehensive range of amenities.
When leaving Derby city centre by vehicle, proceed north on the Kedleston Road and after passing Allestree continue straight-on into Quarndon Village on Church Road, and after passing The Joiners Arms public house and restaurant on the right-hand side, the private driveway to numbers 73 and 75 can be found on the left-hand side. The bungalow is situated to the end of the private driveway.
