Full description

It is seldom that properties of this nature come to the open market, Readings Property Group are pleased to offer for sale this handsome property with stunning rear gardens. Built in the early 1950s by Bruce Fletcher, a local renowned builder, for his own occupation. Situated on the edge of Evington village with a substantial plot of 0.5 acre with outline consent for the erection of a single detached dwelling within the grounds. In need of general updating and modernising, there may be potential for the demolition and erection of a block of flats subject to full consent although a positive planner's opinion has been obtained. However, the property would form an exceptional family home after a basic refurbishment programme and one could quite easily live in it during modernisation. There is a gas central heating system with a modern condensing boiler, windows are replaced in UPVC sealed units. In summary, A lovely family home in need of some TLC or an exciting redevelopment project.

Planning Notes - The property benefits from outline planning permission for the erection of one dwelling Class C3 with all matters reserved. The application number is 20151836 and details can be found on the Leicester City Council Planning portal.
