We understand the name Uffa Magna dates back from the Doomsday Book, recording that the area now known as Mickleover was once known as Uffra Magna, which was later changed to Uffa Magna. This particular, small select, innovative development of only ten properties, was constructed in the 1980's being either barn conversions or new-build, and all of a pleasing and individual cottage-style. The subject property is semi-detached and boasting many pleasing features to include the high entrance porch, the split-level hall, and feature landing with high bay window. This property really does require internal inspection to be fully appreciated, with the accommodation approached via the entrance porch to the entrance hall, with two reception rooms, and refitted kitchen to the ground floor, and to the first floor two landings, two double bedrooms, and a modern bathroom. Outside, the property benefits from a front garden with single car standing space, separate single garage, and enclosed rear cottage-style garden.
The small, select development of Uffa Magna is situated within Mickleover Village Conservation Area, and is literally within minutes of fairly flat-walking distance of Mickleover centre and an excellent range of amenities, together with regular bus services to Derby city centre and the Royal Derby Hospital. The property also benefits from being within minutes driving distance of the A38 and A50 for commuting further afield, yet is also within minutes walking distance of open countryside.
When leaving Derby city centre by vehicle, proceed on the Uttoxeter Road towards Mickleover, and on reaching the traffic island at the Royal Derby Hospital continue straight across still on Uttoxeter Road and onwards into Mickleover centre, proceeding through the centre before turning left immediately before the second traffic island, into Hedingham Way and immediately left into Uffa Magna.
