An extended two bedroom Victorian home situated in the heart of South Knighton.

Description

Excellently positioned in the heart of the much-loved suburb of South Knighton, this bright and meticulously designed two-bedroom Victorian home has a wonderful sense of volume throughout. The space unfolds across the ground floor, flowing towards a private decked terrace at the rear of the property. South Knighton neighbours Clarendon Park and Stoneygate, with their wealth of independent bars, restaurants, and coffee shops found on Queens Road and Allandale Road, which are a short walk away. The beautiful green spaces of Victoria Park and Knighton Park are also within easy reach.

The home is characterised by a bold colour palette of black, blue, and white throughout. The primary living space is found at the centre of the plan and has beautiful herringbone parquet flooring, wooden-framed windows overlooking the south-facing garden, and a large cast-iron fireplace at the centre. A real sense of space is enjoyed in this area. A wide entrance hall interlinks the spacious reception rooms. To the front of the property, a bright and airy focal reception room with a large double-glazed bay window to the front aspect overlooks Sidney Road and allows an influx of natural light into the space, with a cast-iron fireplace at its centre. Following a clever extension, the kitchen is well equipped with an extensive range of integrated appliances, sufficient eye-level and base units, and access to the rear garden through wooden-framed doors. The versatile landing space on the first floor provides access to two double bedrooms, a refurbished four-piece family bathroom, and a large storage cupboard configured as a utility room. The larger of the two bedrooms is at the front of the house, featuring fitted wardrobes, a cast-iron feature fireplace, and a dusty pink colour palette. Bedroom two is positioned at the centre of the first floor and includes fitted wardrobes and a leafy view of the rear garden. A four-piece bathroom with a walk-in shower cubicle completes the accommodation. The property also benefits from a new roof, fitted in 2018.

To the rear, a beautifully landscaped south-facing garden is situated. Steps lead down to a mainly lawned area with established shrubbery providing excellent privacy from neighbouring properties. Readily available on-street parking can be found directly outside the property.

Presented in excellent condition throughout and offering further scope for remodelling, early viewing is essential to appreciate the convenience the property offers with its extensive range of amenities.
