Property SummaryA spacious, double bay fronted, three bedroom detached home occupying a generous plot on the highly sought after Romway Road. Although in excellent condition, the accommodation may benefit from cosmetic modernisation throughout.
Property An exciting opportunity to acquire a delightful detached family home on the Stoneygate/Evington border, available on the open market for the first time in over 70 years.
The current accommodation is immaculately presented and high standards of care and maintenance have been upheld throughout the ownership. A welcoming entrance hall grants access into the principle downstairs rooms which come in the form of a living room enjoying an abundance of natural light thanks to the bay window to the front, a large dining room with French door into the garden, and kitchen with separate pantry. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units but could be remodelled to incorporate the dining room.
The upper floor boasts three good sized bedrooms with the master enjoying a walk in bay window. The bedrooms share use of the three piece family bathroom which is fitted with period avocado sanitaryware.
Outside This property occupies a generous plot and as such offers great potential for extensions and redesign subject to the relevant planning permission.
The frontage provides off road parking atop two slabbed driveways; a small lawn and evergreen hedging decorates the front with year round greenery. A garage with a rear door adjoins the house on the left.
To the rear a large garden is found. A slabbed patio extends directly outside the property and leads down shallow steps, with flowerbeds either side set within a stone wall, to a lawn with striking silver birch and mature trees beyond. Timber fencing offers privacy from neighbouring properties.
Location The property is situated on the border between the highly sought after suburbs of Stoneygate and Evington, two miles from the City Centre. The local area offers a comprehensive range of local amenities including the nearby supermarkets, Leicestershire Golf Club and Leicester Lawn Tennis Club. Within minutes' walk 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 independent and state schooling in the area while the University of Leicester and Leicester Royal Infirmary are walkable or only a short drive away.
Access links to the area are excellent with the A6 London Road offering convenient access to the Leicester mainline train station which provides services to London St Pancras in a little over an hour, Birmingham New Street station and Nottingham.
