A fine example of a four bedroom Victorian terraced home bursting with character and nestled just a minute's walk from the bustling Queens Road. Extended accommodation is complemented by a south facing courtyard garden.
This family home has been well maintained during its current 12 year ownership with particular attention to the abundance of period features which create a strong sense of character throughout the property. A panelled front door with transom window above grants access into the entrance hallway which features a dado rail. The principle living accommodation comes in the form of a front reception room, rear reception room, garden room, and kitchen. The bright and airy bay fronted living room has been traditionally styled and is embellished by a picture rail and an intricately detailed cast iron fireplace. The rear reception room, with TV point, is used as a secondary sitting room and enjoys timber flooring with a traditional stain colour, decorative coving to the ceiling, and the original fireplace. Beyond, the stunning garden room with its glass semi-vaulted ceiling, stripped timber flooring, and glazed doors into the garden is accessed openly. To the other side is the farmhouse inspired kitchen which boasts a wide range of wall and base units topped with a mottled, rolled edge worksurface encompassing a ceramic sink and drainer unit. Integrated appliances include a range style cooker with chrome brushed extractor over while there is a recess and plumbing for a washing machine. A half lattice, part glazed door gives a second access point to the garden.
The upper floor provides four good sized bedrooms, three large doubles and a generous single. The master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes and timber flooring while the remaining bedrooms offer ample space for freestanding furniture. Each bedroom shares use of the fully tiled family bathroom which comprises a bath with shower over and glass shower screen, wash hand basin, and WC.
The traditional frontage is set behind a low level brick wall with pedestrian access granted via an opening. The front garden is styled with slate chippings and attractive shrubbery while to the side is a slabbed pathway to the gated side access leading to the rear.
The ultra low maintenance rear garden consists of a slabbed patio directly outside the property and a fine gravelled area beyond. The patio extends into a slabbed pathway which wraps around and gives access to the outbuildings ahead and alleyway to the side. The outbuilding benefits from both an electricity and water supply as well as a WC and window providing the ideal opportunity for a home office conversion. Privacy is enjoyed thanks to the brick wall surround with trellis above.
This home is situated in the highly fashionable suburb of Clarendon Park on the bustling Queens Road end of Howard Road which lies approximately a mile to the south of the city centre. The sought after area surrounding offers local day-to-day shopping while an abundance of trendy bars, restaurants, and cafes can be found on Queens Road, mere seconds' walk 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 the suburb is well served by renowned schooling for all ages with excellent comprehensive and independent provisions.
