Description

Welcome to the epitome of Victorian elegance nestled in the heart of Melton Mowbray – a majestic residence that effortlessly combines timeless charm with modern comfort. Dating back to around 1899, this captivating home is a true testament to the grandeur of its era, offering approximately 2800 ft² of living space spread across three impeccably designed floors.

As you approach, the grandeur of this Victorian villa becomes apparent. An arched entrance porch beckons you inside, where a magnificent wooden door, adorned with leaded and stained glass, sets the tone for the splendour that awaits within.

Step into the welcoming embrace of the entrance hall, where an original mosaic tiled floor, a grand pine staircase, and intricate Victorian details immediately capture your attention. The high ceilings, deep skirting boards, and ornate architraves speak to the craftsmanship of a bygone era, while the curved brickwork adds a touch of architectural flair.

The front lounge is a haven of comfort and refinement, illuminated by a glorious, boxed alcove window that floods the room with natural light. A cast iron fireplace, set against a backdrop of marble, takes centre stage, exuding warmth and character. Above, the extravagant swan neck cornice adds a sense of grandeur, making this room the perfect setting for intimate gatherings or quiet moments of relaxation.

Adjacent, the sitting room beckons with its dual-aspect views and yet another magnificent fireplace, creating a cosy ambiance that invites you to unwind and linger. Whether enjoying a good book by the gas fire or hosting friends for lively conversation, this room effortlessly caters to every occasion.

For those who love to entertain, the kitchen/dining room is a culinary haven, featuring a comprehensive range of units and drawers, and swathes of worktop space you will also find a double oven, induction hob, and integrated appliances. French doors lead out to the rear patio, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living spaces and providing the ideal backdrop for alfresco dining amidst the beautifully landscaped garden.

Venture upstairs to discover a haven of rest and relaxation. The first floor is home to four generously proportioned bedrooms, each exuding its own unique charm. Bedroom one and bedroom two feature fire breasts with alcoves on either side, adding character and depth to the rooms. Additionally, bedroom one showcases a wonderful bay window to the front, offering a tranquil space bathed in natural light. Meanwhile, bedroom three surprises with an en suite shower room and a hidden storeroom, adding a delightful twist to its already enchanting character. The family bathroom, although spacious, is in need of a cosmetic update, providing an opportunity for the new owners to add their personal touch. Additionally, a separate WC, conveniently located at the top of the stairs, provides added comfort for residents and guests alike.

Ascend to the second floor, where two additional bedrooms await, along with a well-appointed bathroom offering modern comfort with a nod to the past. The landing provides a tranquil retreat, with a sash window overlooking the rear garden and ample space to create a cosy reading nook or study area.

Outside the Home:

Approaching the property from Burton Road, you're greeted by a double-width driveway providing off-road parking for up to three vehicles. A gate to the side leads to the rear of the property.

The walled rear garden has been professionally landscaped, showcasing meticulous attention to detail and creating a stunning outdoor sanctuary for relaxation and entertainment. From the French doors of the kitchen, step out onto the sheltered brick patio seating area, laid in a herringbone pattern and nestled beneath a timber pergola. This idyllic space is perfect for enjoying al fresco dining or simply unwinding amidst the serene surroundings.

As you traverse the garden along a neat, slabbed footpath, bordered by attractive box hedging, fragrant lavender, and newly planted trees, you'll encounter a large timber shed offering ample storage for garden tools and equipment. Further along, a second patio seating area awaits, strategically positioned to capture the warmth of the sun throughout the day.
