With a similarly large loft, not to mention the private off road parking and courtyard garden, this stunning home provides a flexibility of lifestyle that would be hard to find elsewhere.

In your mind just imagine spacious rooms, period features, character & history, unique floor plan, flexibility of use, and all finished to the highest possible standard, yet still scope to ‘make your mark’. Welcome to Derngate.
This house really does have it all, in abundance. The ‘wow’ factor starts the minute you enter the welcoming vestibule from where you can access the sitting room, door to basement, or impressive stairway up. You can also enter via the kitchen / diner from your private parking area at the rear. Once inside, you can’t fail to be impressed by that kitchen, as little expense has been spared to create a 21st century facility that fits empathetically with its’ 19th century origins. Suffice to say you need to see this to fully appreciate what has been done over the years. Likewise the drawing room, with its magnificent fireplace, ornate cornice & high skirtings, original wood flooring, and Thomas Sanderson window shutters.
Upstairs the story continues, with high ceilings, double glazed sash windows, masses of storage, and quality fittings throughout. Both bathrooms are ‘party size’, and the Megaflow boiler ensures a full power hot water supply 24/7. Bedroom 5 has a ladder fixed to the wall to access the attic. Just think what you could do with this huge space?
Down to the basement via the purpose built staircase. Effectively 3 large rooms which have been adapted to create a large master bedroom, with stunning high quality contemporary shower room, bay fronted spacious lounge/dining room and a beautifully fitted kitchen with separate utility cupboard. This basement flat could be rented out separately to provide an income or provide a separate annexe for your family.
Ideally located in the Cultural Quarter, and therefore with easy access to all local services, shops, transport infrastructure, theatres (!), etc., No 45 also benefits from having private off-road parking to the rear, which is reached via a private driveway through double gates. A magnificent home which is which encapsulates the best of traditional features with a mix of modern contemporary living.
