3 THE PADDOCKS “We bought the property 12 years ago, after a long search. I have lived in the area all my life and have always loved the convenience of living in a thriving town, so we were looking for the right house for us in this locality. We wanted somewhere set back from the road and tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet with easy access to local facilities,� say the vendors.

The home has a wonderful feeling as soon as you approach the pillared storm porch which benefits from lighting and natural stone paving. On entering the home, you step into a magnificent reception hall, which truly complements the individual nature of this beautiful home. This is an expansive, light and practical hallway gracefully accented with Porcelanosa tiled flooring and a most gorgeous bespoke curved staircase which leads to the upper floor. There is a well-appointed contemporary cloakroom with modern suite fitted and, overlooking the front gardens with its bow window, is the first of the reception rooms, being a most spacious study. The main sitting room is a truly elegant triple aspect room featuring a forward-facing bow window and French doors opening up to the rear landscaped gardens. The quality of this room is enhanced by the Ortal Living Flame gas fire, set with a bespoke Limestone surround fitted by Robeys of Belper. There is a square archway leading into the dining room area which, in turn, flows seamlessly into the breakfast kitchen, giving the accommodation a really family friendly and sociable feel. The kitchen is an excellent hub of the home perfect for day to day life, and is the real heart of this home. Being of fantastic quality, designed and created by David Stone of Chesterfield, the room benefits from a single inset stainless-steel sink unit with feature mixer tap and a Miele four ring induction hob (with an Airone extractor fan flush in the ceiling) set within a large L-shaped Silestone worktop complete with contemporary LED lighting around the base. The large floating central island with matching Silestone worktop gives further workspace and again has feature LED lighting hidden around the base. The white gloss and dark wood finish units provide a vast array of storage including two full length pull-out larder storage cupboards with chrome fittings and internal LED lights, wine storage, Atag larder fridge, pull-out corner units and hidden drawers. A Miele electric fan assisted oven with matching Miele steam oven and Miele warming drawer are housed together, and a Miele microwave is housed between the larder units. The quality continues with Porcelanosa floor tiling which flows into the family area and there is a second small stainless-steel food preparation sink next to the hob. The open space leads to the family area which has a matching Silestone breakfast bar with space for four bar stools and a family room large enough to accommodate sofas or a dining table. There are further French doors leading out to the rear natural stone terrace. The practicality of the home is further added to with the matching utility room, which has a double Belfast sink with chrome mixer tap and fitted base cupboards beneath, as well as a worktop, tiled splashback and additional full length storage cupboards, plumbing for automatic washing machine, space for tumble dryer, ceiling downlights, matching tiled floor, heated chrome radiator, integral door giving access to the kitchen and integral door giving access to the double garage.

Seller Insight Ripley suited our needs for work and had all the necessary everyday facilities, including transport links, lovely little independent shops and cafes, plus an excellent local hospital and supermarkets. We have a busy work and family life, so it’s ideal having everything we need within walking distance.” “The garden is our passion and we have created a beautiful space suitable for entertaining, relaxing and family life. It’s very private and is a wildlife haven where we often see woodpeckers, blue tits, song thrushes and birds of prey soaring overhead. I make my own jams and chutneys from the bountiful harvest from the kitchen garden that includes cordon fruit trees, soft fruits, herbs and roses for cutting. There is year-round interest starting with Hellebours and cyclamen in the depths of winter, leading on to snowdrops, daffodils and hyacinths. These make way for magnolia, rhododendrons, clematis and the highly scented honeysuckles and wisterias. I have designed the garden to be full of colour, scent and edible produce, yet it is also very low maintenance, so we have plenty of time to enjoy all it has to offer.” “The flow and warmth of the house is amazing. It’s very practical, low maintenance and easy to run, and although everything is on a grand scale, it’s also very homely and liveable. We have space to do our own thing and then come back together in the kitchen to relax on the sofas.” “We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen. It’s a very sociable space where we gather to enjoy our meals, watch tv and relax.” “It’s so easy to live here, everything we need is easily accessible and we spend our free time enjoying ourselves as we explore the wonderful Peak District which is less than an hour’s drive away.” “The house is ideal for entertaining. I can be cooking in the kitchen and still feel part of the fun as I can still hear and see everything that goes on in the dining room and the lounge.” “After a happy and enjoyable 12 years, retirement is now looming, and we now feel it is time to downsize. It will be a wrench to leave our beautiful home, but we are hoping to stay in the area.”

OUTSIDE To the outside of the home there is a plot measuring just over 0.25 of an acre of private gardens. The property is entered via electric double gates which lead onto a plentiful parking area and in turn leads to the integral double garage which has twin electric up over doors and houses the gas fired boiler. The front gardens have a granite laid pathway leading to the canopied storm porch and have mature planting. There is gating to both side of the home. There is a well-stocked kitchen garden located to the side of the home containing fruit trees, soft fruits and raised flower beds which make a perfect small allotment for the keen gardener. The rear gardens are a delight with privacy in mind and benefitting from the sun travelling around them all day, they feature a south westerly facing aspect and have mature borders offering a floral treat all year round. There is a circular natural stone laid patio underneath a pergola, and the laurel hedging, which surrounds the plot, has the added benefit of hidden security fencing for added peace of mind. This then leads to a further garden area with low maintenance planting and wide gravelled pathways, a perfect area for a children’s playground away from the formal gardens if required.
