Property SummaryAn attractive double bay-fronted five bedroom detached period home on a highly sought after treelined road in Stoneygate offering extensive and stylish living space complimented a large, private garden.
An exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial period home boasting a prominent position on one of Stoneygate's most sought after roads. This property has undergone cosmetic refurbishment of the bathrooms and a programme of modern decoration throughout during its three year ownership. This Edwardian home offers a seamless fusion between period and modern styling; a wealth of period features including timber framed windows, decorative ceiling roses, coving, and dado rails allow character to ooze throughout the property, perfectly contrasted by contemporary radiators, fixtures and fittings, and classic flooring.
The wealth of accommodation offered is immediately present upon entering the bright and airy entrance hall, accessed via the front door with stunning stained glass inserts. The well-proportioned rooms come in the form of bay-fronted living room spanning the length of the house and featuring oak flooring, bespoke wooden shutters, and a cast iron log burner, family room, bay-fronted office with oak flooring and fitted wooden shutters, dining kitchen, and utility room. The dining kitchen benefits from plans for a redesign to create a luxurious open plan space, ideal for families. Currently, the space is fitted with a range of wall and base units with an integrated oven, gas hob, and stainless steel sink with a recess for a dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. Beyond, the large utility room, with door into side passageway, offers additional fitted units and a sink along with space for washing appliances.
Four double bedrooms are found to the first floor; the master enjoys bespoke fitted wardrobes and a lavish four-piece ensuite comprising a freestanding bath with central taps, oversized walk-in shower with ceramic tray, twin sinks set atop individual bespoke vanity units, a heated towel rail, and WC. The remaining bedrooms share use of the family shower room which offers a walk-in shower with rainhead attachment, wash hand basin, heated towel rail, and WC. The carefully designed loft conversion houses the fifth double bedroom and is treated to bespoke storage solutions and an abundance of natural light via Velux windows.
This delightful property offers a contemporary frontage decorated with attractive shrubbery within raised, brick built flower beds. To the side, a gate leads to the passageway and rear garden. Guilford Road offers unrestricted on road parking for vehicles.
The large rear garden offers a highly private and serene space for relaxing, with borders of mature trees and shrubbery. The slabbed patio directly outside the property leads to a large lawned area which in turn grants access to the brick built summerhouse/storage building with glazed entrance door.
The property is situated in the highly sought after suburb of Stoneygate, one and a half miles from the City Centre, offering a comprehensive range of local amenities including the nearby supermarkets and recreational facilities. 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 including the award-winning Highcross Shopping Centre.
There is a wide selection of renowned independent and state schooling in the area while the University of Leicester and Leicester Royal Infirmary are only a short walk/drive away. Access links to further afield are excellent with the A6 London Road found at the top of Guilford Road offering convenient access to the Leicester mainline train station which provides services to London St Pancras in a little over an hour.
