Property Details


Being located on Briar Gate, a most sought after road on the edge of Long Eaton, this individual detached Edwardian home provides spacious and well proportioned accommodation to both the ground and first floors which we are sure would appeal to people who are looking for a large period family home in the area. It is interesting that since being originally built this beautiful home has only been predominantly owned by only two families which must show what a special home it is and we are sure that whoever buys this property will also be looking to live here for many years. The property still retains many of the original features from when it was built around 1907 and for these and the size of the accommodation as well as the privacy of the gardens to be appreciated, we strongly recommend that people who are interested in a property of this style, organise to have a viewing so they see the full extent of what is included for themselves. This beautiful home also includes an indoor swimming pool which has doors opening out onto the gardens and a private patio area at the rear and a TRIPLE GARAGE facility with a most useful CARPORT at the front. Being situated on Briar Gate the property is well placed for easy access to both state and independent schools for all ages which include the well known Trent College and The Elms School located on the other side of Derby Road, and is also within easy reach of excellent transport links, all of which have helped to make this a very popular and convenient place for people to live.

Having a distinctive appearance from Briar Gate with a turreted section of the building to the left hand corner of the front elevation, this large residence is constructed of brick with parts of the front and side elevations being rendered and timbered all under a pitched tiled roof. The accommodation is spacious and derives the benefits of GAS CENTRAL HEATING and from partial DOUBLE GLAZING with the front elevation still retaining a large stained glass window which throws light into the main reception hall and landing areas. The wide staircase is built of oak and mahogany and there are solid mahogany doors leading to the reception rooms from the hall. Throughout the house there are deep skirtings, cornices and in the study there is a most beautiful plaster moulded ceiling which is one of the important original features of this lovely home. The accommodation is light and airy and is entered through the original double solid wooden doors to the enclosed porch and through a further door to the main reception hall which has the feature staircase leading to the first floor, oak block flooring, cornices and the mahogany doors leading to the main lounge, dining room, study and sitting/day room which in turn leads to the kitchen, off which there is a large walk-in pantry and utility/laundry room. There is also a ground floor w.c. and at the rear of the house there is the indoor swimming pool which opens out to the gardens. To the first floor the spacious landing leads to the five double bedrooms, one of which has a shower room EN-SUITE and then there is the main bathroom which is fully tiled and includes a separate shower as well as a bath. When people view this lovely home they really will be able to see for themselves the size of the rooms that are included and the many retained features from when the property was originally built. Outside there is the triple garage with the carport at the front situated at the head of a block paved driveway. The mature gardens are private and provide several places for people to sit and these extend from the front around the left hand side and to the rear where there are various patio areas and a lawned garden with established borders and screening to the sides.

Being located on Briar Gate this beautiful home is within easy reach of the Asda and Tesco superstores and many other retail outlets found in Long Eaton town centre with Nottingham and Derby both being only a few miles away, there are the excellent state and independent schools within walking distance of the house, healthcare and sports facilities which includes the West Park Leisure Centre and adjoining playing fields and transport links include J25 of the M1, East Midlands Airport, stations at Long Eaton and East Midlands Parkway and there is the A52 and other main roads which provide easy access to Nottingham, Derby and other East and West Midland towns and cities.
