Description

Offering NO ONWARD CHAIN and occupying a prime position in a popular residential area of Market Harborough opposite a green, this two bedroom Victorian semi detached house of character has been sympathetically modernised whilst retaining a wealth of original period features.

Whilst the attractive timber main entrance door provides direct access to the accommodation via the front yard space and steps, the current vendors have created a really natural feeling to enter via the rear along a side passageway and through gated access, via a UPVC double glazed back door. This opens into a useful lobby space with storage to both sides, plumbing for a washing machine and wall mounted boiler providing the gas fired gas fired central heating.

From an opening, you then proceed into the kitchen which offers an attractive range of high quality units with quartz worktop surfaces, cast iron and timber block shelving, 1 & ¼ bowl drainer sink with mixer spray tap above, space for a Rangemaster oven having a job above with integrated AEG wide extractor hood above, plumbing for a washing machine and further space for a wine fridge or other appliance. A rather unique feature of this kitchen space, is the impressive opening which has been created between the dining room, this allows for an open plan kitchen diner feel, whilst also having a retaining wall and step to separate the two rooms.

The dining room enjoys a dual aspect with sash windows from the side and rear. There is a feature open fireplace with timber surround and tiled back / hearth. There is exposed timber flooring in excellent condition to both the dining room and living room. The living room itself is positioned to the front having a bay window overlooking the park and views beyond, a feature cast iron open fireplace with tiled hearth and timber surround, built in shelving with storage units beneath and main timber glazed entrance door from the front.

Accessed via steps down between the living room and dining room is a very useful cellar which is split into two rooms.

As you rise to the upper floor, you arrive onto the bright and airy landing with sash window to the side allowing an abundance of natural light to flow through. Situated to the front, enjoying spectacular views over playing fields and the town centre beyond, lies the master bedroom again enjoying views over the park and town, a built in wardrobe and storage cupboard which provides steps up to the loft. The loft itself provides an excellent additional space which is useable with boarded floor / ceiling. The second bedroom is also double in size, positioned to the rear, with feature cast iron fireplace and also benefits from beautifully kept timber flooring. Completing the upper floor is the family bathroom finished to a high standard brick style ceramic tiling, a bath with chrome shower above, low level flush wc, heated towel rail and fantastic feature was basin comprising a ceramic bowl on top of an old cast iron & timber frame with chrome mixer taps above.

Externally, the property occupies a unique plot towards the end of the road, which leaves ample space for on street parking before the properties. There is a small paved area to the front enclosed by a low brick wall and step to the main entrance door. Side access leads on through the gate in to the fully enclosed, beautifully landscaped rear garden which extends to the right directly from the rear. Enjoying a pleasant aspect, being next to allotment space, the garden comprises a slate patio, lawn with borders, useful yard space ideal for storing bins etc., timber shed and mature trees.

What Our Seller Says…


"What I love about this house is its wonderfully peaceful location. Being situated on such a beautiful park offers additional outdoor space on your doorstep and I love that feeling of not being hemmed in. Working from home I get to sit and watch the world go by across the park from my desk and at lunchtime I often go and sit in the park with my dog and enjoy the sunshine. It is also just a 5 minute walk into town and 15 minutes to the train station so I have really been able to enjoy leaving my car behind."
