A Rare Opportunity To Acquire A Three Bedroom Former Coach House Hidden Away In The Centre Of Stoneygate

Dating back to 1860, "The Coach House" is positioned on Portland Towers, a leafy, private lined road lying just off Grenfell Road on the Stoneygate/Oadby borders. The property's location gives great access to the fashionable neighbourhood shopping facilities found along Francis Street, Allandale Road and Queens Road however provides an excellent form of privacy and seclusion with it's positioning. The house itself tells a lovely story of its past owners through it's design and original features with the use of sash windows, picture rails and high ceilings however has been meticulously restored with exemplary attention to detail by the current owner. The result is an individually and contemporary designed home in the centre of Leicester.

Accommodation is arranged over two levels. The ground floor is almost entirely open plan with a modern and stylish kitchen and dining room at its centre. Off to one side is the kitchen benefiting from wooden flooring and all relevant fitted appliances including dish washer, washing machine, five-ring gas hob with concealed extractor unit above as well as integrated oven and grill. To compliment the kitchen space, there is also access to a south-facing garden through uPVC doors allowing a great use of natural light into the house. Additionally, the kitchen provides entry to a generously sized basement which could be reconfigured to add additional accommodation if necessary. The sitting room follows the same trend of natural light with uPVC double glazed french doors opening onto the private and well kept south facing rear garden. Furthermore, a great addition to the room is a newly fitted fireplace and hearth, burning smokeless fuel.

Ascend up the staircase and you are greeted with three double bedrooms and a newly fitted four piece family bathroom. The master bedroom in particular is worth highlighting as it boasts direct views onto the rear garden through it's sash windows and includes an original feature cast iron open fireplace.

It is in our opinion that a home of this calibre, coupled with the rarity of something like this coming onto the market demands an internal viewing to really appreciate the charm and personality the house has to offer.

Vendor's comments:

" I bought the house because of it's private location as it is surrounded by trees. A real backwater within the city. The property has had a full renovation with a new kitchen, bathroom and brand new wooden double glazed windows upstairs. I also moved the wall adjoining bedroom two and three to ensure all the rooms were well proportioned. I remodelled the garden by building a new wall and added a seating area to capture the sun as much as possible. It really is a lovely home, now suitable for somebody else to love and appreciate as much as I have done. "
