Seller Interview - The pretty village of Eggington is situated in a rural setting within the Trent Valley and is surrounded by glorious open countryside. Set on the edge of the village is this stunning, spacious, luxurious, family home containing a layout which is practical and ideally suited for an active family life.
The village, although small, has a strong sense of community with many social activities taking place throughout the year, such as a summer fete, communal bonfire and Christmas celebrations. Its primary school is outstanding with schools for older children being located nearby. Derby, Nottingham and Burton on Trent are very close, with the local railway station, just one mile away, providing a service into Birmingham for journeys to all parts of the land. In addition, links to major roads and motorways are exceptional.
The property, originally a bungalow, was constructed in the 1960s but was significantly enlarged and stylishly enhanced prior to its purchase, eight years ago, by its present owners. Of course, they have added their own touches to the house but its brilliant layout suits their lifestyle perfectly. There is a wonderful sociable flow throughout, with each of its reception rooms providing space for individual activities, or total relaxation. It is so peaceful and tranquil here, with most of the external traffic being that of passing tractors or equestrian pursuits.
The large, practical, kitchen/diner is the hub of family life and is where friends and family naturally gather. Another of its advantages is that it conveniently connects with the playroom and, therefore, the children are nearby whilst cooking and meal preparation is taking place. A fabulous space for relaxed suppers, whatever the occasion.
Doors open out onto the large patio and into the garden which is mainly laid to lawn, but offers a safe environment for children, along with their friends, to play safely and happily. In addition, being surrounded by such fabulous countryside, there are several walking opportunities without having to drive anywhere.
The house and garden, with its layout and space, is the venue for large family gatherings, parties for children and summer BBQs. Christmas time often finds fourteen or more guests sitting around the kitchen table to enjoy the celebrations.
It is for logistic, family, reasons, that the owners must say farewell to this lovely home in its outstanding location. They have been so happy here and have no doubt that whoever decides to live here, will be as happy and content as they have been.
