Property SummaryA sympathetically extended and finished three bedroom Victorian semi-detached family home in the centre of Blaby offering high specification modern living together with a large driveway and low maintenance garden.
This property has undergone extensive works during its current ownership to provide a sympathetic fusion between period features and 21st century living. A wealth of character features remain including picture rails, decorative coving to ceilings, and ceiling roses. Underfloor heating flows through the hallway, living room, and utility room.
The spacious accommodation comes in the form of a bay-fronted living room with bespoke shutters and herringbone Karndean flooring and a family room with engineered oak flooring. Above the basement, the living dining kitchen lies within the extension which boasts Velux windows allowing natural light to flood in. A range of off white classic shaker style wall and base units are arranged in an L shape and are complimented by a large central island with matching units in a contrasting charcoal colour. Beautiful stone worksurfaces encompass a range style cooker in the base units and a ceramic sink with chef's tap over within the island. Further appliances include a dishwasher, wine cooler, and microwave. A separate utility offers a timber worksurface with metrobrick splashback and an additional ceramic sink and space for washing appliances and leads openly into the downstairs shower room which is fitted with a shower cubicle and WC.
The upper floor boasts three double bedrooms with the master and second bedroom each providing a range of fitted wardrobes. Engineered oak flooring flows through the master to the front and stripped timber floor in the second bedroom to the rear. Each bedroom shares use of the tiled family bathroom comprising a corner shower cubicle, roll top claw foot bath with central taps and handheld shower attachment, wash hand basin, WC, and large chrome heated towel rail.
This property offers an ample frontage with a block paved driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles. Wrought iron railings decorate the borders. A side gate set within brick walling leads to the alley and the garden beyond.
The rear garden provides the ideal low maintenance space for relaxing with two patios, one directly outside the property and the other perfectly placed as a suntrap at the bottom of the garden, and an afro-turf lawn. Privacy is afforded by tall brick walling in keeping with the Victorian setting.
The property is situated a couple of minutes' walk from the centre of the well established South Leicestershire village of Blaby, lying six miles southwest of Leicester City Centre. The village itself offers a host of amenities including supermarkets, banks, cafes, pubs, and restaurants. The area also provides well regarded schooling for young children, recreational facilities, and a regular bus service to Leicester. .
Blaby is ideally located for commuters with fast access to the M1/M69 and benefits from being within easy reach of Leicester train station providing regular services to London St Pancras International and Birmingham.
