A substantial individual detached home which is one of the most iconic properties in the area, retaining many of its original features since built in 1910. The accommodation includes an impressive dining hallway, two large reception rooms, kitchen and breakfast room, a minstal landing with four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Large Southerly facing gardens and a triple garage.

'Red Court' is one of the most impressive and iconic properties in the Long Eaton and surrounding area. The property was originally built in 1910 by William Johnson, a local lace manufacturer, as his family residence with the current owners having lived at the property for the past 40 years, in which time they have made sure that all the original features in the property have been retained. The features include extensive oak and mahogany panelling to the walls in the main dining hall, sitting room and master bedroom, original oak internal doors, flag stone flooring throughout the dining hallway, original open fireplaces with feature surrounds in a number of the rooms and the windows are the original windows throughout the property. The main accommodation is arranged on two levels with there being a main staircase from the dining hallway to the minstral galleried landing and there is a second staircase from a rear hall leading to the right wing of this distinctive home where there could be a separate self-contained suite within the property. This house is the right residence for a prospective purchaser who would like to live in a distinctive period property which is recognised locally as a prestigious residence that is steeped in history and original features and for people who are in search of this style of home we would only be too pleased to arrange a viewing so the style and character within the property can be fully appreciated.

The property stands to the rear of its large plot in a slightly elevated position with the main gardens being to the front and side with these being Southerly facing with there being a further private area at the rear. Being located on Derby Road the property is well placed for easy access to all the local facilities and amenities provided by the surrounding area which include excellent state and independent schools for all ages which are within easy walking distance of 'Red Court' and several easily accessible transport links, all of which has helped to make this a very convenient and popular place for people to live.

The property was originally designed by Osborne Moorhouse Thorp, a local architect who designed this substantial individual home with two main wings and all the main receptions and bedrooms overlooking the gardens at the front. The property is built of red brick with pebble dash to the first floor, some timber framing and decorative brick noggins with a steep pitched tiled roof with overhanging eaves.

The accommodation is spacious and well planned with the original double opening wooden entrance doors leading through to a porch and via the original leaded inner door to the reception hallway which has flag stone flooring that extends to the central dining hallway from which the main stairs lead to the minstral galleried landing. There is a cloakroom and w.c. off the hall, the lounge, a second sitting/drawing room, rear hall, kitchen, breakfast room and utility room.

To the first floor there is the master bedroom, from which there is access to a large fully tiled bathroom and separate w.c., there are two further very large bedrooms, a second bathroom which has an original suite and tiling to the walls and off the landing there is a butlers pantry with original fittings. To the second floor there is a further double bedroom which as with the two main bedrooms on the first floor level has a glazed door leading out to a balcony. There is also a store room on the second floor.

There are double gates leading from Derby Road onto the large driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the TRIPLE GARAGE. The drive gives access to the lawned area where there is a summerhouse and patio areas for people to sit and enjoy outside living. Screening and fencing to the boundaries help make the property private from the front and from adjoining properties. Outside there is a boiler house located below the main property.

This beautiful residence is situated on Derby Road and standing behind well screened gardens is within only a couple of minutes drive of the Asda and Tesco superstores and numerous other retail outlets found in Long Eaton town centre, the Trent College and The Elms Independent Schools along with excellent State Schools all within walking distance as are health care and sports facilities including the West Park Leisure Centre and adjoining playing fields and the transport links include J25 of the M1, Long Eaton and East Midlands Parkway Stations, East Midlands Airport and the A52 providing easy access to Nottingham, Derby and other East Midlands towns and cities.

    I love every single thing about this masterpiece. The staircases, the open 2nd floor, the nooks and crannies… when can I move in?

    Fergus, once again, you provided a feast for the eyes.

    A Grade II property on the National Heritage List, similar to our National Register. A late example of the English Arts & Crafts Style. Beautiful, and big!

    A wonderful house with a great, detailed description! That black/white bathroom almost had me tricked into thinking it was a black and white photo. Pretty cool!

    Fireplace of my dreams: the copper and tiles are beautiful. Love the massive wood beams and frames, too.

    This place is so ridiculously beautiful that I was intimidated until I saw that lovely kitchen. Then I felt right at home. Winner, winner, chicken dinner, Fergus.

    I can’t find anything about this house that I don’t like! Love the tub in the black and white bathroom.

    Oh, the internet is cruel. What an amazing home! If I owned this, I’d just walk around all day long touching this and that. Then I’d find my quiet reading spot. Lovely home.

    And my MG would look pretty good in the driveway!
