Property SummaryAn exquisitely transformed and extended three bedroom semi-detached home in the highly desirable suburb of Clarendon Park boasting character features throughout, complimented by a garage and beautifully landscaped garden.
Property From the front door with beautiful stain glass insert, locally handcrafted, to the picture rails and fireplaces that have been reinstated, this home has been elegantly transformed to provide modern accommodation within a period property. Following the redesign, a complete redecoration encompasses a bold and stylish colour palette used downstairs with soft and calming Farrow & Ball colours used upstairs.
The generous space comprises a bay fronted family room with timber flooring, picture rail, and a wood burner set within an exposed brickwork fireplace and the extended living dining kitchen. An abundance of natural light cascades into the large room thanks to the Velux windows sitting in the semi-vaulted ceiling and stunning bifolding doors to the rear. The living room portion of the room, again featuring a picture rail, is embellished by a striking art deco style working fireplace. The remainder of the room is given to the dining area and fitted kitchen. A wide range of luxurious solid oak shaker style units, painted in Farrow & Ball light blue, with a metrobrick splashback are met with a solid oak worksurface, perfectly complimenting the engineered oak flooring with underfloor heating which flows through the rear. A range of appliances have been installed to include a high level double oven, large gas hob with chrome extractor over, integrated dishwasher, and sink and drainer unit. Beyond, a utility with matching units encompasses a Belfast sink and houses the combination boiler. The utility flows through to give access to the integral garage along with the downstairs cloakroom housing a WC.
The staircase, with the beautifully renovated original balustrading and banister, rises to the upper floor which boasts three bedrooms; elegant picture rails adorn the master with stripped timber flooring and the carpeted second bedroom. A newly refitted period style family bathroom offers a bath with tiled surround, wash hand basin, and WC.
Outside The neat frontage sits behind low level brick walls with period wrought iron embellishment. Two shallow steps with Minton style floor decoration lead to the front door with door canopy over. To the side, a block paved driveway for a vehicle leads to the garage offering additional storage.
The garden has been beautifully landscaped to provide vibrant flowerbeds set behind low level decorative brick walling, a large patio outside the property for outdoor furniture and a barbecue, a shed, and a manicured lawn with a block paved pathway giving access to the secondary sun trap patio to the rear which sits under a timber structure. Timber fencing and tall brick walling define the property's boundaries while mature trees to the rear offer privacy.
Location This delightful family 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 parallel and perpendicular Clarendon Park Road and Queens Road, each just a 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.
