Property SummaryA delightful double bay-fronted, three bedroom Victorian villa, retaining original features, in the heart of fashionable Clarendon Park. The spacious accommodation, offered with no upward chain, provides scope for extension or redesign subject to consent.
An exciting opportunity to acquire a Victorian villa with the potential to extend or remodel, subject to relevant consent, or to personalise the existing, immaculate accommodation. A wealth of original character features greet prospective buyers upon entering the light and airy entrance hallway. The original geometric tiled flooring flows through the hallway to grant access to the downstairs living space. The well-proportioned rooms come in the form of a bay-fronted living room with decorative coving, picture rail, and open fireplace, family room with picture rail, an ornate fireplace, and double doors into the garden, and breakfast room, enjoying an abundance of natural light, leading into the kitchen to the rear. The kitchen offers the original pantry cupboards and a minimalist range of units encompassing appliances.
The grand staircase with intricate balustrading leads to the galleried landing above. The upper floor boasts three bedrooms, two large doubles and a generous single. The spacious bay fronted master boasts the original built in wardrobes, while the second bedroom overlooks the garden and is embellished by the original cast iron fireplace. The third bedroom to the rear also boasts a decorative fireplace. The family bathroom is fitted with a period style three piece suite comprising a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, and WC.
This property offers a particularly attractive frontage set behind a low level brick wall. A slabbed pathway leads up to the open storm porch and front door beyond.
The generously sized rear garden, with the original brick wall surround, offers several outbuildings providing additional storage along with a large timber built summerhouse/workshop. A well-maintained lawn is accessed beyond the slabbed patio while shrubbery and a tree along the border provide additional privacy from neighbouring properties.
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 independent provisions either a walk away, with Leicester High, or short drive to Leicester Grammar at Great Glen.
