Description

Available to the open market for the first time since being built in the mid 1970s, Mossdale represents a rare and exciting opportunity. Requiring general modernisation, this individual two bedroom detached bungalow is ideally situated within this exclusive conservation setting west of the City. Surrounded by some of the most expensive homes in the county and set well back from Forest Drive behind a number of large trees this deceptive bungalow offers just over 2000 sq ft of accommodation. When considering what has been achieved on neighbouring properties it is likely that planning permission could be achieved to create additional first floor accommodation if required. Available with no chain, early viewing is highly recommended.

Location

The property is located in the highly sought after ‘Kirby Fields’ Conservation Area. An exclusive residential area which is made up predominantly of large, individual period homes less than a mile from the village centre. Kirby Muxloe is located approximately 4.5 miles west of Leicester City and offers a range of individual shops, church, primary school, two pub/restaurants and Grade I Listed remains. There are regular bus services and recreational facilities within the village including an 18 hole golf course and numerous country walks. For the commuter access to the A46, M69 and M1 is close by and excellent rail links to Birmingham and London St. Pancras International are available from Leicester.

Central to the accommodation, the dining hall leads directly to a well proportioned sitting room with gas living flame fire and windows to both front and rear. Overlooking the rear garden is a recently refurbished breakfast kitchen and conservatory with doors opening into the rear garden. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of fitted cabinets, island unit, two sinks and an impressive range of integrated appliances.

An airing cupboard with hot water tank and cloakroom complete the accommodation.
