With period features such as large bay windows, picture rails and fireplaces, this family home is situated to the north of the City of Leicester, in Birstall. Close to local banks, a post office, supermarkets, a country park and Birstall Nature Reserve, this home has something for everyone. Birstall is near enough to the city to enjoy the vibrant restaurants, bars and independent shops on offer yet closer still to the tranquil green spaces and leisure facilities on the outskirts. Nearby good schools include Highcliffe Primary School and Riverside Community Primary School and Leicester rail station offers direct services to London St Pancras International in around 75 minutes. Good communication links, including the M1, A6 and A46, are easily accessible and this property is favourably positioned to suit a wide range of sought-after family requirements.
Approached via a generous gravel driveway and bordering shrubs, the front of this property offers pedestrian access to lean-to storage area with ample space on the drive for parking vehicles. The front entrance opens into a large porch, while the hallway gives access to two spacious reception rooms and a generous, light-filled kitchen and a staircase to the first-floor. On the first floor, accommodation comprises three good-sized bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle.
