Property SummaryAn elegant four double bedroom, three bathroom detached Victorian home offering over 2000 sq.ft. of accommodation over three storeys, complemented by off road parking and a delightful courtyard garden.
This substantial detached home dates back to the late Victorian era and has undergone an elegant and sympathetic programme of refurbishment to accentuate the property's wealth of immaculately maintained period features. The sense of grandeur and character is immediately present upon entering through the porch into the welcoming hall with dazzling chequered flooring laid on the diagonal. The porch is illuminated by the transom windows perched above the door while the inner door is ornately decorated with stain glass inserts. Accessed from the hall is the large basement, a flexible space to suit the use of the purchaser. The above ground accommodation comes in the form of three large reception rooms, each uniquely styled yet perfectly complementing one another. The generous bay-fronted dining room boasts timber flooring, a magnificent fireplace, and a picture rail separating the striking red lower wall to the crisp white above. The living room to the left of the hall has an elevated sense of space thanks to the high ceilings embellished by decorative coving. The solid timber flooring with a warm hue contrasts the cool blue walls while the central fireplace enjoys an attractive and intricate surround. The rear of the ground floor is given over to the large open plan living dining kitchen with bold black tiled flooring and matching shaker style wall and base units. A solid timber worksurface softens the darkness while large windows over the units provide ample natural light. There is space for a range style cooker and an American style fridge freezer while a recess offers space for a washing appliance. Beyond, the door to the side leads into the courtyard garden and outbuildings, ideal for additional storage.
The distinctive black and white staircase leads to the upper floors. Timber flooring treated with a black stain flows throughout the first floor where the master and third bedrooms are found. The master bedroom enjoys the bay window, an extensive range of fitted wardrobes, and a stylish ensuite comprising an oversized shower cubicle with metrobrick tiling, wash hand basin, and WC.The third bedroom again boasts wardrobing while an electric fireplace adds a contrasting splash of modern to the period charm. The large family bathroom with exquisite wall panelling has been fitted with a rolled top claw foot bath, wash hand basin, and WC.
The second floor landing grants access to the second ensuite bedroom which is embellished by exposed brickwork and the vaulted ceiling. The contemporary ensuite comprises a shower with rainhead attachment, wash hand basin, and WC. Completing this home is the fourth double bedroom featuring dual aspect windows and a period fireplace.
The immaculate frontage sits behind detailed wrought iron fencing with a pedestrian entry gate while a gravel topped
driveway provides illusive off road parking for vehicles.
The rear of the property offers a courtyard styled garden with high privacy afforded thanks to the tall brick walls. Trellissing attached to the walls allows climbing plants to add a burst of colour to the paved space. The external spiral staircase leads from the garden up to the second floor.
The property is situated in the highly sought after area of Stoneygate, one and a half miles from the City Centre. The suburb offers a comprehensive range of local amenities including the nearby supermarkets, Leicestershire Golf Club and Leicester Lawn Tennis Club. Within walking distance are the ever-popular Allandale Road/Francis Street and Queens Road shopping parades which offer a wide variety of independent shops and boutiques. Leicester City Centre is situated a 10 minute drive away providing a broad selection of eateries and shopping opportunities.
