HISTORICAL NOTE

Interestingly the property formerly comprised a farm dating from the 1860s and then called Oaklands Villa. It was bought by our client's family in 1913 and has been in the same ownership ever since. During the 1920s the property was substantially extended to a style reflected by the very noted architect - Sir Edwin Lutyens.


LOCATION


The property is situated in the very popular suburban area of Littleover with the old village centre providing an excellent range of local amenities including a varied selection of shops, schools at all levels together with the Derby High School, Derby Grammar School for Boys, regular bus services to Derby city centre which lies some two and a half miles to the north and in addition Derby's outer ring road provides swift connection with the principal trunk roads and other East and West Midlands centres. Local recreational facilities include Mickleover golf course.
