A fascinating property which was formerly the old Telephone Exchange situated on the highly popular and favoured Duffield Road in Allestree and was sympathetically converted many years ago by its current owner to provide a detached family home enjoying an elevated position and providing the benefits of full gas central heating and double glazing throughout.

A strongly recommended internal inspection will reveal deceptively spacious accommodation ideal for the family. Currently the property provides entrance hall with good size lounge with decorative briquette feature fireplace, formal dining room, well appointed breakfast kitchen with mahogany units, useful utility room and cloakroom. There is a ground floor bedroom and large family bathroom with five-piece suite.

To the first floor off an elegant galleried landing access is gained to a principal bedroom which enjoys a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, two additional bedrooms and a family shower room.

Outside is an easy to manage, well-tended garden laid mainly to lawn with mature flowering bushes, trees and rhododendrons. Access is gained by a driveway leading to a large block paved area ideal for al-fresco dining and providing parking space. The property also has an interesting former Battery Room which now serves as a workshop/store.

The sale provides a unique opportunity to acquire this special four bedroom detached residence offering size and space but with the benefit of gas central heating and double glazing. Requiring some improvements and modernisation, the property enjoys an elevated position and has ease of access to comprehensive facilities. Viewing is certainly recommended.


The property is situated in the highly popular village of Allestree close to the old village centre with ease of access to facilities, the A38, local schools and regular bus services to Derby city centre.
