Property SummaryA substantial four bedroom detached family home occupying an enviable plot in one of Knighton's most sought after addresses. Already extended and finished to a high standard, the property boasts planning permission for a further 3 double bedroom property.
This substantial property occupies a truly enviable position on one of Knighton's most sought after residential streets. Tucked at the top of Wimborne Road, bordering Knighton Park and the Leicester Race Course, this home offers generous grounds for further development.
Not only is there scope to add further grandeur to the main house by extending the upper floor, with neighbouring properties providing endless inspiration, the land to the side has planning permission granted for the construction of a separate three bedroom property. The relevant permissions were granted in December 2020 with full details being available on the Leicester City Council website under application number 20200995.
Even without further development, the home boasts extensive living space. The storm porch leads to the panelled, half obscure glazed entrance door. The bright and airy hall, with solid timber flooring, grants access to the three reception rooms. The rooms come in the form of a bay-fronted living room, family room with coving to ceiling, picture rail, and a bay made of uPVC glazed windows and double doors protruding into the garden, and tiled dining room with a rectangular bay offering views and additional double doors into the garden. The kitchen has been beautifully extended to offer an open space, intensified by the absence of wall mounted units. The shaker style base units provide all the necessary storage and are topped with a contrasting granite worksurface. Appliances include a double oven sitting below the hob with stainless steel extractor over.
The galleried landing to the first floor provides access to each bedroom. The delightful master bedroom enjoys the large walk in bay window and stunning timber flooring. The second bedroom offers a range of built in wardrobes. Each bedroom shares use of the five piece family bathroom. The uniquely styled bathroom features a timber ceiling with insert chrome spotlights. The sanitaryware comprises a corner shower cubicle, bath, bidet, wash hand basin, and WC.
This imposing home benefits from a pleasant frontage, set behind low level walls, with a driveway for multiple vehicles leading to the garage and a beautifully maintained garden offering a burst of colour.
The gardens to the side and rear have been wonderfully kept throughout this 20 year occupancy. Manicured lawns meet deep borders of evergreen hedging and topiary. A crazy paved patio sits directly outside the property and narrows into a pathway leading to the bottom of the garden. Total privacy is afforded by the hedging and mature trees to the sides and rear.
Wimborne Road is a quiet street tucked behind the Ring Road in the ever popular suburb of Knighton which lies approximately two and a half miles to the south of the city centre. The suburb itself offers a corner shop and post office, large park on the property's doorstep, popular pub and benefits from regular bus services to the city centre. Within walking distance of both the renowned Allandale Road/Francis Street and Queens Road shopping parades as well as the bustling town of Oadby which offers a wide variety of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and bars.
There is a wide selection of renowned independent and state schooling for all ages including Leicester High School and Leicester Grammar School in Great Glen. The property is also excellently located for University of Leicester, Leicester Royal Infirmary while the A563 Ring Road provides direct access to Leicester's motorway network.
