    “Fairwinds is a sizable property on a main road.”

    It has good links to all the main places to go locally and for shopping/eating. However the property is in need of some investment. The kitchen is functional but dated (except extractor fan which was broken), the hot water system is old fashioned (one shower and then a 20 min wait for another one) and there is NO access through the main front door. The conservatory door at the rear is openable (however this was after we requested this) as normally is is locked and has a metal bar over it. This ...

    It has good links to all the main places to go locally and for shopping/eating. However the property is in need of some investment. The kitchen is functional but dated (except extractor fan which was broken), the hot water system is old fashioned (one shower and then a 20 min wait for another one) and there is NO access through the main front door. The conservatory door at the rear is openable (however this was after we requested this) as normally is is locked and has a metal bar over it. This was a great disappointment to us. However the owners parents (who are keeping it for their son) were lovely people and came out promptly to sort out concerns. The main road is loud (especially in the mornings) but there is secondary glazing. Just be warned some of the windows are old and appear to be nailed/sealed shut. Do take a fan (if in the summer). The garden is a super size for children to run around and play. There is a sectioned off area where there is a bees nest currently which was a concern. Also there is a gardener who visits daily, which was unexpected. Overall we had a good holiday, enjoyed the brilliant garden to play in and relax and found some new places to visit locally. If you have young children I would say unless they are confident walkers and can manage stairs this may not be the place for you.

    I was dismayed to read your negative feedback concerning your stay, especially after you had written such a nice note for my parents stating what a lovely time you have had, and what a lovely house it was! I would like to address your points; 1. We have had no complaints regarding hot water availability in the previous 12 months from any customer. However, at the end of the season we are planning to add a second bathroom, to make it more comfortable for guests. 2. No access through front door , There is absolutely no need to access via the double front doors, as there is another front door at the drive way, which gives easy access from your cars. 3. The bolt on conservatory door, this was removed immediately on request so why mention it at all? 4. The bees at the bottom of the garden are Honey Bees, and are so far away from the house that there could never be a concern. I also feel its not right to kill these bees, when there is a shortage of Honey Bees in the UK. As you said the garden is huge as you can see from photos 5. Stairs .. Your comments would apply to any set of stairs in any 2 storey house .. In fact for anybody looking at the photos, they would see that the stairs are split with a little landing and are the lowest flight of stairs that you could possibly find. Finally, we've had nothing but good comments from customers and we understand that we need to renovate part of the house, but as you can see Fairwinds is a dated property which retains much of the original features from the 1930s. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Set back from the road between Leek and Ashbourne is this beautiful 1930s detached property, 244 Leek Road, which has kept some of its original features and historic charm.

The spacious rooms offer themselves fantastically to a family get-together with a seemingly endless garden for the children to play in, and for you to relax.

Entering the property from the utility room, a great place to kick off your shoes, you will enter into the open-plan living area which hosts the kitchen, breakfast table and sitting area with TV, so it's perfect for those sleepy mornings making breakfast while the kids watch their favourite programme.

Passing through the original wood-panelled hallway, you come through to the sitting room where the classic decor continues, and you can take up a good book in the window seat while the fireplace warms you from across the room.

Gather in the dining room which overlooks the delightful garden, before taking an after-dinner drink into the conservatory on those chilly nights, If the sun is still up, then you can go out onto the patio to make the most of the summer evening.

The stunning feature window leading up the stairs takes you to the first floor which contains three good-sized bedrooms; a super-king and two doubles along with a bathroom with a bath, shower and basin, and a separate WC.

To the outside there is plenty of room for five cars in the driveway at the front of the house, and the back the garden will be a haven in the summer time for children and adults alike.

The nearest Co-op is 0.5 miles away, nearest Golf club, Greenway Hall GC open to public with driving range and restaurant is 1.0 miles, nearest restaurant is Ego at the Hollybush and is 0.8 miles,stafford Arms Pub is an 18th century building and is 2.5 miles.

The Caldon Canal runs through Endon so is perfect for a spontaneous walk and lunch at one of the canalside pubs, or take yourself over to Rudyard Lake for a boat trip to take in the almost untouched natural scenery.

For the thrill-seekers, you won't be able to resist popping over to Alton Towers, being just a 30-minute drive away, this is one of the best theme parks in the UK so take the opportunity to test your limits!

Conveniently located for touring the Midlands, 244 Leek Road in all its classic grandeur and glory, is waiting for you to make more memories within its walls with your loved ones.
