An opportunity to acquire a well-positioned two bedroom dormer style detached residence occupying a quiet cul-de-sac location in the convenient village of Findern.

The property does require modernisation but offers excellent potential for a detached home and has impressive open views to rear over neighbouring fields.

Internally the property offers gas central heating, entrance hall, living room with feature fireplace, second sitting room, rear dining room/bedroom two and kitchen. The first floor landing is accessed via a spiral staircase which leads to the large main attic bedroom with bathroom off.


We have been informed by the vendor the house was originally constructed with two first floor bedrooms with a traditional staircase accessing them. We do not believe the current access via a spiral staircase will comply with current building regulations and prospective purchasers are advised to get this checked by their conveyancer/solicitor.

Outside, the property benefits from a block paved driveway with wrought iron railings and gates to the side leading to a garage/workshop. The rear garden is low maintenance with raised borders with views over neighbouring fields.


Findern is a sought after South Derbyshire village offering easy access to both Derby and Burton as well as the A50 and A38. The village itself boasts a post office/general store, hairdressers, primary school, recreational ground, bus services, easy access to the impressive Mercia Marina which is a short drive-away.
