Full description

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a detached house tucked away from Hawthorne Drive along a gated private driveway. The house occupies a substantial plot with plenty of scope to extend (subject to consents). There is an entrance area with canopy porch, the dining room doubles up as a superb area to greet guests as they arrive with views through to the conservatory and garden beyond. The lounge is a really good size and has an attractive open fire, there is a good quality breakfast kitchen with granite work surfaces, utility room and a WC. There is an oak and glass staircase from the dining room which provides a really smart, modern look to the first floor landing. There are four well proportioned bedrooms, the master has an en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom. As we have already mentioned, the gardens are large and beautifully maintained. There is parking for a number of vehicles, a carport and a double garage. Properties of this type rarely come to the market therefore viewings should be made without delay. No Chain.

Directional Notes - The property is best approached by leaving Leicester City Centre along the A6 London Road. At the traffic lights with Evington Road bear left and continue on for some distance. As the road forks take Evington Lane to the right and cross over the inner ring road passing Leicestershire Golf Club on your right hand side. Take the next available left hand turn onto the slip road adjacent to Evington Lane, then turn right and follow the road around to the left and the driveway for this property can then be found on the right hand side by our agents for sale board.

Specification - This is a high tech house with electric gates to the driveway with an intercom system, the gates can be opened via your mobile phone from anywhere in the world. An external WebCam captures images or real-time video chich can be observed remotely on your mobile device. British Gas HIVE is installed to control the central heating system, both remotely through a mobile device as well as at the property itself. There is super fast Virgin Media broadband and the owner advises us they get the full 50Mb, great for anyone working from home. PV panels have been installed with a feed in tariff of 49.4p/kWh which has been a great benefit to the current owners with savings on utility bills and cash back each year.
