Full Details

On the outskirts of Leicester city centre is this charming, attractive 1930s semi-detached family home offered for sale in the sought-after residential area of Knighton. Within walking distance of Victoria Park, the property is set back from the road and provides spacious accommodation. There are plenty of delightful features including coved ceilings, wood floors, double glazing throughout, off road parking and a lovely landscaped garden at the rear.

At the front of the property is an expansive brick paved area providing ample off road parking, which leads to UPVC front door. Enter into the entrance hall to find a stunning wood-effect floor, carpeted stairs with wood balustrade to the first floor, and access to a fully tiled cloakroom with low level WC and wall-mounted wash hand basin.

To the right of the hall is the lovely and bright double aspect living with a wood floor and its bay window overlooking the front, allowing plenty of light to flood the room. At the other end of the room are glazed double doors that lead into the kitchen/dining room.

Across the width of the property at the rear is a superb kitchen/dining room which looks out over the landscaped garden. From the dining area are sliding glazed doors leading out onto the terrace. The L-shaped, part tiled Country style kitchen has an extensive range of wall, base and drawer units providing plenty of storage space with work surfaces above, a stainless steel single drainer sink unit with mixer tap, a built-in gas hob with extractor hood above, a built-in double oven with built-in microwave above, as well as an integrated fridge/freezer and washing machine.

The carpeted staircase with wood banisters takes you to the first floor landing, which provides access to two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the family bathroom. Bedrooms one and two, one of which has a lovely bay window, have an extensive range of built-in wardrobes with further storage cupboards above and incorporating a dressing table. The third bedroom has a smaller built-in wardrobe.

The impressive, fully tiled modern family bathroom has a white suite incorporating a panelled bath with wall-mounted shower unit, mixer tap and glass shower screen, a low level WC and wash hand basin atop a vanity unit with storage space underneath.

The front aspect of the property provides ample parking on a brick paved frontage. To the left of the property is a tall wooden gate which leads into the side access and the rear. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and bordered on all sides by wood fence panelling. The paved terrace offers plenty of space for table and chairs, ideal for family gatherings and entertaining, while paved paths lead down both sides of the garden. At the rear is a further paved area where there are two garden storage sheds and space for seating. The main part of the garden is laid to lawn with a stylish statuesque feature in the centre sitting in the middle of a circular bed with brick paved border.

This delightful older style semi-detached family home, which has been extended at the rear, sits in the highly sought-after residential of Knighton, about a mile south of Leicester city centre. Local convenience stores, like Knighton Londis, the Co-Op and Sainsbury’s are just a short distance away, as are a variety of other amenities including Carisbrooke Lawn Tennis Club, the University of Leicester Botanic Garden, Leicester Racecourse and Knighton Park. Leicester city centre provides a wider choice of shopping outlets, boutiques, cafes, as well as a broad selection of eateries and shopping opportunities.

Leicester’s mainline rail station, which provides services to London St Pancras in around an hour, is nearby as is Leicester Royal Infirmary, an excellent choice of private and state schools, plus Leicester and De Montfort universities.
