A meticulously decorated three/four bedroom detached home spread across three floors situated in the heart of Stoneygate.


Elegantly situated amidst a distinguished treelined residential address, this property captivates with instant kerb appeal. Unassuming in its exterior, the residence unfolds across three floors, boasting an expansive floorplan exceeding 1800 square feet. Cleverly extended to cater to multi-generational living, this home stands as a testament to thoughtful design. Recently subjected to a comprehensive refurbishment programme, this property seamlessly blends modern amenities with potential for further extension and configuration. Notably, the home benefits from approved planning permission for both single and two-storey rear extensions as of September 2023 (REF: 20231804) which would allow for a fifth double bedroom and a further reception room.

Upon entry through the original wooden-frame door, the charm extends from the entrance porch to the deceptively spacious hallway. To the left, an impressive principle reception room bathed in natural light from double-glazed leaded windows, featuring an Artel pellet fireplace, bespoke shelving, oak-hardwood flooring, and French timber doors opening to the South-facing rear garden. To the rear, a well-appointed fitted kitchen equipped with underfloor heating boasts a five-ring gas cylinder hob, concealed extractor hood, large Belfast sink and ample storage, leads seamlessly to a utility room and a creatively repurposed double garage, now a fully equipped home gym and separate WC, complete with underfloor heating presenting versatility and potential for alteration to allow for multi-generational living.

Ascending to the first floor, the landing provides access to two double bedrooms and a modern fitted family bathroom. The master bedroom, with dual aspect windows, stylish pendant lighting, and a second Artel pellet fireplace, includes a large walk-in dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a concealed three piece en-suite, benefitting from underfloor heating also. The second double bedroom boasts dual aspect double-glazed leaded windows complete with bespoke shutter blinds and generous space for free-standing furniture. A second flight of stairs with a large glass front and VELUX skylights overlooking Shirley Avenue itself reveals two additional bedrooms, one with three sets of VELUX skylights, exposed wooden beams, and plush wool carpets, and the other configured as a home office with laminate flooring, complemented by a three-piece family bathroom, again, featuring underfloor heating. To the rear, an established and private South-facing garden includes an extensive range of mature trees acting as a haven for wildlife, contrasts with the driveway at the front, comfortably accommodating two vehicles.

Properties of such calibre in the immediate vicinity are consistently sought-after, making early viewing imperative to fully appreciate the refined finishes and lifestyle this home affords.

Vendor comments:

" This house has felt like home since I moved in. I made a few renovations which have really improved the space and functionality of the house to include a walk-in dressing room and en-suite, a further downstairs w.c and converted the garage into a home gym. I have added underfloor heating to the kitchen, utility, en-suite and top-floor bathroom as well as bespoke shutter-blinds which feature throughout the whole house. Two Artel pellet fireplaces are very useful in the winter months and I particularly like the bespoke fitted shelving bookcase in the front living room. The road is quiet with friendly neighbours whilst also providing really convenient access to Allendale Road with it's extensive range of amenities alongside nearby Oadby town centre. "
