A remarkable three bedroom Victorian home situated in the thriving suburb of South Knighton.

Description

A remarkable three bedroom bay fronted Victorian house set on the highly sought-after Knighton Church Road, one of Leicester's most sought after suburban addresses in South Knighton. The subject of extensive remodelling and extension, the interior scheme makes use of a tactile material palette of stone, smoked wood and stainless steel. The house is arranged over three levels, designed to connect seamlessly with the tranquil outside space where a wonderfully secluded garden can be found complete with raised flowerbed planters, a cobbled stone patio area and a range of mature established trees providing immense privacy from nearby properties.

Through a stain leaded glass front door, the ground floor is almost completely open plan and is characterised by natural light that flows throughout the entirety of the accommodation. Immediately, an atmosphere of sophistication and innovation is evident with the current homeowners applying immense attention to detail to the entirety of the space. Engineered hardwood flooring fitted by Benjamin James Flooring Ltd pairs nicely with two solid fuel burner fireplaces which are positioned to the centre of the living and dining areas, creating a warm and inviting ambiance whilst original ceiling roses, picture rails and open archways celebrate the rich Victorian heritage of the house. The living spaces are a testament to thoughtful design. The open-plan layout seamlessly connects the living room, dining area and kitchen, fostering a sense of togetherness.

Following a comprehensive yet thoughtful extension in 2018, an open archway leads to a spectacular shaker-style breakfast kitchen to the rear of the property complete with Velfac double glazed French doors. Limestone tiled flooring from highly regarded DeVol kitchens benefit from underfloor heating pairs with stainless steel work surfaces and stylish rattan pendant lighting whilst a large Range cooker with AEG hood takes centre position in the space. Light streams in from above courtesy of three strategically placed Velux skylights. These architectural marvels flood the kitchen with daylight combining with that of the French doors casting a soft glow on the stainless steel, and accentuating the texture of the materials. The kitchen is also equipped with an integrated dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer and ample surface preparation area.

A staircase ascends to the first floor, where two well-proportioned bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom lie. The front bedroom features an original Victorian fireplace to the centre of the space and a large double glazed window to the front aspect overlooking Knighton Church Road. To the left hand side of the landing, a second double bedroom complete with plush wool carpets is positioned whilst to the far end, a contemporary three piece Lusso Stone bathroom suite includes a freestanding bath with monsoon shower over, vanity sink unit and high flush low level WC, a shelved airing cupboard housing the central heating boiler and a UPVC sealed double glazed window, complete with a vaulted ceiling emphasising the space on offer. Attentively extended to incorporate a loft conversion and utilising the use of VELUX skylights to brighten the space on offer, a third double bedroom sits on the top floor of the house, configured as an additional living room follows a sensitive yet neutral colour palette coupled with a large double glazed picture window to the side aspect overlooking the rear garden and beyond, completing the accommodation on offer.

Outside, a wonderfully secluded, low maintenance North facing block paved forecourt garden provides an extensive range of established fruit trees, raised shrubbery and flowerbeds whilst to the front, a cobbled stone pathway and established borders provide privacy from the main road. Readily available on-street parking can be found on Knighton Church Road. Properties that follow this programme of refurbishment often prove very popular in the immediate area. Early interest comes with the Partner's highest recommendation to avoid disappoint.

Vendor comments:

“ We love the area. It’s a great community to live in. We bought the house in 2017 and have done a heavy renovation on what was previously a rental property. The house has a lovely flow to it. The space is really social, but when you want a bit of peace and quiet, you retreat to the lounge onto the second floor. We will be really sorry to see it go. “
