Property SummaryA fine example of a traditional four bedroom Edwardian villa positioned on a popular treelined road in Clarendon Park, extended and cosmetically improved for modern living while retaining period features. A pleasant rear garden compliments the accommodation.
The high standards of care and maintenance ensured by the current owners are immediately present upon entering the welcoming entrance hallway which is embellished by the original tiled flooring. The hallway grants access to all downstairs rooms which begin with a light and airy bay-fronted living room with a picture rail and central fireplace with striking black surround and hearth. Bifolding doors lead into the dining room which offers stripped timber flooring and double doors into the garden. To the rear of the property, the tiled dining kitchen is found spanning nearly 30 feet in length with a skylight within the extension allowing an abundance of natural light to flood through. A range of classic shaker style units provide storage solutions and are complimented by a timber worksurface which incorporates a Belfast sink. A range style cooker (available via separate negotiation) offers a large hob and multiple ovens while there is ample space for a large freestanding fridge freezer.
The first floor boasts three good sized bedrooms, two large doubles with their original cast iron fireplaces and an additional smaller double, ideal for a nursery or home office. The stylish family bathroom with marble tiling comprises an oversized walk in shower, rolled top clawfoot bath, wash hand basin set within a large timber vanity unit, and WC. The master suite is located on the second floor and boasts an extensive range of built in wardrobes together with thoughtfully designed built in under eaves storage. The generous bedroom also enjoys a contemporary ensuite decorated with the finest Indian slate and comprising a walk in shower, modern twin wash hand basins set within a bespoke shaker style vanity unit with contrasting surface, and WC.
This property offers an attractive frontage set behind well pruned hedging with gated access to the pathway leading to the front door with decorative canopy over.
The rear garden provides the ideal low maintenance space for relaxing. A patio directly outside the property leads to a pathway which separates flowerbeds either side and grants access to the secondary suntrap patio to the rear. Mature trees in neighbouring properties along with timber fencing to all borders afford the garden high privacy.
This delightful family home is nestled in the centre of Clarendon Park on the quiet, treelined road of West Avenue 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, just a minute's 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.
