Property SummaryA particularly attractive and spacious Edwardian three bedroom semi-detached home nestled in the sought after area of Stoneygate retaining period features and complimented by a pleasant and highly private rear garden.
A period front door with stunning stain glass insert and lead piping grants access into the entrance hallway. This family home has been reconfigured to provide three large double bedrooms from the original four and offers scope for further redesign in the form of a loft conversion, if desired, within the generous roof space.
The high standards of care and maintenance ensured by the current owners are immediately present upon entering the boldly decorated entrance hall and passageway, embellished with the original Edwardian terrazzo flooring, decorative skirting boards, and coving to the ceiling . The well-proportioned accommodation comes in the form of a dining room to the front, open plan dining kitchen with an integrated dishwasher, pantry and a generous living room. The dining room features a large bay window allowing an abundance of natural light to be enjoyed along with decorative coving to the ceiling. The living room to the rear offers views over the garden along with a wealth of character features including coving to ceiling, picture rail, and period fireplace with raised hearth and mantel over. The kitchen offers an open space both for an informal dining table and a range of units. A range of minimalistic shaker style wall and base units are met with a timber worksurface encompassing an oven, gas hob, sink with drainer unit, and recesses for utility appliances. A perfectly placed pantry provides additional storage solutions. This exceptionally beautiful property has two outbuildings that lead to the well kept garden.
The bold decoration of the entrance hall extends to the upper floor where a spacious and galleried landing is found, this leads to a former bedroom converted family bathroom that has a newly fitted basin with tap and WC. The upper floor boasts three spacious double bedrooms, each with characterful picture rails and ample space for freestanding furniture. The shower room with separate WC completes this home perfectly.
The front of the property sits back from the road and offers a slabbed pathway to the storm porch and front door beyond. To the side, a secure gate leads to the rear garden. On road parking may be sought on Sandown Road and surrounding unrestricted streets if required.
The rear garden is well-established with a variety of plants, shrubbery, and trees to provide colours and scents through the seasons. A pathway borders the manicured lawn and leads to the suntrap patio to the rear. Enclosed by brick walling and fencing, this garden is highly private.
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, Leicestershire Golf Club and Leicester Lawn Tennis Club.
