Property Description

This elegant and extended, bay-fronted house enjoys a quiet, near central city location in a friendly neighbourhood, just north of the river in the highly regarded De Freville area. The property has high ceilings, a wealth of fine architectural features and has been thoughtfully designed with modern open-plan living in mind.

The property is entered via an original stained glass door with fanlight over, leading to an entrance hall with a useful storage cupboard and stairs to the first floor. There is a bright, bay-fronted living room with a feature fireplace, contrasted by an attractive surround and tiled inserts. The centre piece of the property is a contemporary, open-plan kitchen/dining room, which has extensive built-in shelving and cabinetry, various integrated appliances and two skylights. There is a superb sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beam and bi-folding doors leading to a south-facing terrace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility room with additional fitted units and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. This combines with a cloakroom WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs, the accommodation is split over two floors, the first of which houses two double bedrooms and a stylish refitted bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room and built-in wardrobes. On the second floor are bedrooms 3 and 4.

Outside, the front of the property is set back behind a front garden with a low brick wall. The front is lawned with shingled borders and a mature shrub, a quarry tiled pathway leads to the main entrance. The south-facing rear garden is generous in size, measuring 68ft x 20ft and backs onto the residential gardens of Humberstone Road. There is a decking area, well suited to alfresco dining and the remainder of the garden is artificially turfed and stocked with a number of trees and raised beds. There is a useful summerhouse at the foot of the garden, which has power and lighting and could be converted into a home office. There is a secure gate providing pedestrian access back to the front of the property.

The charm, condition and exceptional positioning of this property demands an early viewing.
