Located on the Forest Side and with scope for further improvement (subject to planning consents), this extended home has a stunning garden and views towards the Outwoods. The location provides a perfect balance combining day to day necessities close by, whilst enjoying green spaces and beautiful countryside.
You enter via the hallway, which is spacious enough to meet and greet guests and then you begin the tour in a sizeable dining room with an external door which leads to a private enclosed courtyard. The Dining room could easily be opened up into the kitchen (subject to the necessary planning consents) to create an outstanding living space. Currently, the kitchen is very well fitted with extensive storage, preparation areas and pull-out larder cupboard as well as a range cooker, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
Beyond the kitchen is an extension, providing a space to either work from home or enjoy the beautiful garden to the rear.
The formal lounge is set to the front of the property with a feature fireplace and large window to the front elevation providing lots of natural light. The ground floor is completed by a WC off the hallway.
Upstairs you will find four bedrooms. The principle bedroom is of a generous size and we believe offers the potential to create an ensuite (subject to the necessary planning consents). This bedroom enjoys lovely views over the garden and has built-in wardrobes. The front double bedroom has a large window with some fabulous views over the surrounding rooftops towards the Charnwood forest and has a useful vanity sink.
The two further bedrooms share a lovely family bathroom which has a bath and separate shower cubical.
The low maintenance frontage provides driveway parking with a carport and gated access into the enclosed private courtyard with useful storage. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and has been maintained lovingly for many years. A patio area takes full advantage of the south easterly facing garden with a lawn edged with herbaceous borders that provide colour and interest throughout the year. At the far rear corner of the garden is a raised seating area sat beneath a rose clad pergola, what a beautiful place to enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee.
The location makes it easy to access the road network as J23 of the M1 is close by. The University campus is also close by set to the other side of Forest Road. Enjoy walking? Just a short stroll away you are treated to views towards the Charnwood Forest. Where you can reach walks into the Outwoods or further afield for lunch at The Bulls Head in Woodhouse Eaves or The Manor in Quorn.
Families love it here, with great schools close by and there are small shops accessible on Valley Road and Forest Road. The town circular bus route allows access to the town centre with its twice weekly market. Hidden gems such as Bon Bon patisserie, Eric Oakland butchers and The Beacon pub and deli are worth a visit.
