Property SummaryA three bedroom Victorian terraced property in the heart of Clarendon Park with large annexe having been exquisitely transformed to provide elegant accommodation for 21st century living.
An exciting opportunity to acquire a Victorian property in the heart of Clarendon Park having been extensively redesigned and refurbished over the past two years, creating a stunning home. The comprehensive programme of works includes new electrics, lighting, high specification boiler and stylish column radiators, replastered walls, stunning engineered timber flooring installed, and new double glazed windows throughout.
The high quality of craftsmanship ensured by the current owners is immediately present upon entering the property. This home boasts two entrances, the principal entrance is found to the rear with access granted through the new double doors on the right hand side of the property leading through the cobbled pathway. If desired, the fully operational and newly installed front door could be reinstated as the main entrance.
The period exterior is juxtaposed with the contemporary interior; the modern colour palette used throughout the property creates a calming feel. The well-proportioned accommodation comes in the form of a living room to the front with decorative coving to the ceiling and central ceiling rose, and a breakfast kitchen flowing openly into the rear extension, housing cloakroom with WC, offering space for additional seating or storage as required. Double doors open out into the courtyard and serve as the principal entrance. The minimalistic L shaped kitchen has been fitted with modern shaker style base units met with a contrasting marble effect stone worksurface encompassing an electric hob, oven, and ceramic sink with tap over.
The upper floor boasts three double bedrooms, each with ample space for freestanding bedroom furniture and a TV point. The lavishly appointed four-piece bathroom has been designed to offer luxurious sanitaryware together with inset chrome spotlights and complimenting tiled and painted decoration. The inset bath is surrounded by lighter tiling to compliment the wall and floor tiling, the oversized walk in shower offers multiple shower attachments, and the twin wash hand basins are set in a sleek vanity unit.
The unassuming yet tastefully decorated and well maintained façade gives way to the stunning home lying beyond. The front door with glass insert above sits centrally and could grant access into the accommodation if desired. Garage style double doors to the side lead to the wide, cobbled pathway flowing through into the rear garden which leads to the main entrance. On street parking may be sought on the surrounding unrestricted streets.
The garden has been decorated with slate chippings and attractive shrubbery to provide the ideal contemporary space for relaxing and entertaining. Whitewashed tall brick walling continues the modern theme and provides privacy. The original outbuildings provide further storage while the stunning annexe is the focal point of the outside space.
Flexible in its uses, the substantial brick built annexe has been provided with light, power, central heating, and provisions for connecting WiFi and offers further luxury accommodation over two floors. The glass double doors to the front aspect with surrounding windows allow an abundance of natural light to cascade into the annexe. Stylish column radiators provide heating while large inset spotlights provide the lighting. An elegantly reconditioned staircase grants access to the upper floor which boasts decorative balustrading with a galleried view and skylight and three windows allowing further natural light to be enjoyed. Additional storage has been built into the under stair space and offers the opportunity to capitalise on the plumbing installed to create a bathroom.
This delightful home is nestled in the centre of Clarendon Park, lying approximately a mile to the south of the city centre. The sought after area offers local day-to-day shopping while an abundance of trendy bars and restaurants can be found on the road perpendicular, Queens Road, just a couple of minute's walk further away.
The city centre, professional quarters and mainline railway station with fast services to London St Pancras are only a short distance away, across Victoria Park and down the leafy New Walk. The property is also excellently situated for both of Leicester's universities and Leicester Royal Infirmary while renowned schooling for all ages, both state and independent, is available within a short distance.
