Property Summary

This property's generous frontage provides highly sought after off road parking for three vehicles atop a slabbed driveway. Neatly pruned hedging as well as other shrubbery add a splash of bright colour to the traditional terracotta brickwork and white framed windows. The rear garden has been completely transformed to provide a sophisticated, tranquil, and highly private space for relaxing and entertaining. A mixture of topiary, hedging, shrubbery, and plants add vibrancy while the paved patio, brickwork paving, and gravel create a contemporary edge.

Full Details

This fine Victorian villa was carefully constructed in 1896 by the renowned architects Stockdale Harrison whose timeless and classic designs are found throughout Stoneygate and Leicester city centre.

The accommodation underwent a comprehensive programme of works in 2014, led by the renowned, locally based Tippetts & Brooks Developments. Craftsmanship of the highest calibre has ensured that the high specification fixtures and fittings are matched by the overall finish. Care has been taken to retain and restore period features which are juxtaposed against the contemporary decoration. Almost all of the timber framed windows have been sympathetically modernised to provide the benefit of double glazing while preserving the original aesthetic.

A quaint front door with an arched transom window above grants access into the bright and airy entrance hall, complete with period inspired flooring. The accommodation is arranged over three storeys plus a large cellar with the potential to convert into an everyday usage room. The dual aspect living room sits to the left hand side and has been elegantly styled with half height wall panelling sitting below the dado rail with a modern block colour extending up to the crisp white decorative coving to the ceiling.

The original and ornate central ceiling rose serves as another reminder of this property's rich Victorian heritage while engineered timber flooring with insulation below, flowing through into the dining room and kitchen, adds a touch of modern comfort.

A log burner has been installed in the living room while the original fireplace embellishes the similarly styled dining room which enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to its shallow bay window to the front aspect. Arguably the focal point for modern families is the extended breakfast kitchen positioned to the rear.

The truly bespoke cabinets were handcrafted at the designers' nearby workshop with the base units being topped with a solid timber worksurface and backed with metrobrick tiling. A matching island encompasses a family friendly breakfast bar as well as a double, stainless steel sink. Integrated appliances include a large Range cooker and dishwasher while the utility room offers space for both a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Multiple dining spaces offer versatility for growing and blended families, whilst bifolding doors extend the entertaining space out into the well established garden and illuminate the room with natural light to complement the inset chrome spotlights and pendant lights. The grand staircase in the entrance hallway, with runner carpet, rises to the galleried first floor landing above. Three double bedrooms are found on this floor, each with ample space for freestanding furniture be it for bedrooms, a home office, or something else to suit individual requirements.

The master bedroom enjoys views over the leafy garden and benefits from a shower ensuite with a metrobrick tiled enclosure, wash hand basin, WC, and chrome heated towel rail. The remaining bedrooms have access to the luxurious family bathroom which is fitted with a freestanding roll top bath, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin, and WC. Rising again, two further double bedrooms are found on the second floor. Each spacious bedroom shares use of the designer shower room which comprises an oversized walk in shower, contemporary twin wash hand basins, and a WC.
