About Dockyard Dreams – DE72

A historical Grade II Listed former Malt Warehouse, built in 1799, with living accommodation over three floors nestled on the Trent and Mersey Canal. The property provides five bedrooms all with Canadian Maple flooring throughout reclaimed from the old John Player factory.


Currently providing a reception hall with feature panelled wall leading to an open plan living kitchen with exposed beams and cast iron supports. Next there is an office which has direct access to the decking area to the rear and Canal basin.


To the first floor, access is gained to a large sitting room with wooden floor, an adjacent drawing / family room with a corner window overlooking the Canal and basin. To the second floor is a generous bedroom suite, with exposed timbers and roof truss and a free standing copper bath. There is an adjacent en suite bathroom and a dressing room with fitted wardrobe and base cupboards. Access is also gained via a French door to a superb private roof top terrace, again providing stunning views over the Canal and basin.


All floors are oozing with character and original features. But on a more practical note there is a private gated driveway that holds 5 vehicles and outside mains power. Easy access to East Midlands Airport, East Midlands Parkway approx 1 hour 20 mins to London, the A50 and M1 motorway.
