THis classic Victorian family home has been updated, extended and refurbished and is now offered for sale at £510,000.

Four-bedroom Abercrombie House stands in a large garden at 24 Abercrombie Street, Chesterfield S41 – within easy walking distance of the town centre and mainline railway station, and well placed for the M1 motorway. Built in the 1840s, it features four reception rooms, a bespoke breakfast kitchen and a garden room which doubles as a fifth bedroom.

The front door opens into a reception hall with ceiling coving, delft rack and oak flooring.

Ground floor rooms include a spacious lounge and separate dining room, both with bay windows and Victorian fireplace.

There is a family room and a study with book shelving across one wall and twin French windows.

An inner hall, with cloakroom and wc, leads to a utility room, a downstairs shower room and an impressive open plan living kitchen with walnut-fronted units, granite worktops, four-ring induction hob, microwave and dishwasher.

Stairs rise to a half-landing which leads to the master bedroom suite, with refurbished bathroom featuring a white suite with double-ended bath and a travertine tiled floor.

Stairs continue to the first-floor landing off which are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with white Vernon Tut-bury suite.

Outside, twin timber gates open to a long driveway which leads to a rear courtyard with ample parking space and access to a double garage with plastered and carpeted loft room.

The garden lies primarily to the side of the house, featuring a large lawn with well-stocked beds, borders and a stone flagged patio with barbeque and summer house.
