Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a traditional three bedroom detached family home extending to 1345 sq.ft of internal living space which requires general modernisation and improvement throughout yet offers tremendous scope and potential to further improve and extend (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).

Enjoying outstanding views to the front elevation over Ashby towards the castle, the property stands proud on its elevated plot and was originally built in the late 1920's to a traditional design and retains many original features in particular the main entrance hall with its Minton tiled flooring and original doors which prevail throughout.

The property has been in the same ownership since 1962 and it is the first time that the property has been on the open market for over 50 years so this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create and re-design this home (subject to the necessary planning consents) to maximise the true potential of the plot and position.

Accommodation briefly comprises; a storm porch, impressive reception hall with stairs off rising to the first floor and decorative Minton tiled flooring, sitting room with bay window, lounge, dining kitchen and rear entrance porch with boiler room and w/c. On the first floor there are two good sized double bedrooms, bedroom one having a walk-in bay window enjoying fine views across Ashby and bedroom two having a useful store room off which would make an ideal en-suite shower room. Completing the first floor is bedroom three and the main bathroom.

Outside, the property stands proud on its plot being slightly elevated behind a lawned front garden with flowering and herbaceous borders, and a long driveway approach providing ample car standing leading to the detached single garage. To the rear is a long, mature and established mainly vegetable garden with two apple trees providing a complete blank canvass for landscaping. There are also two greenhouses and a shed.

The property benefits from gas central heating and UPVC double glazing.

Situated in a prime position on Leicester Road, just beyond the junction with Upper Packington Road the property has wonderful views to the front across the grounds of Ashby Grammar School and beyond. It is ideally placed for walking distance into the town centre with its many shops, restaurants, cafes and public houses and within easy walking distance of all local schools including Ashby Grammar School and Manor House School. Ashby is also well situated for ease of access to the M42 providing swift and easy access to many East and West Midlands conurbations together with East Midlands and Birmingham International Airports and being on the doorstep to the scenic National Forest.

The property is Freehold and the plot extends as per the attached ordnance survey plan. The land hatched was in 2004 obtained via a possessory title to be incorporated within the plot but not the front part as indicated on the attached plan. 

Tenure; Freehold (purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).
Services; Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas are believed to be connected to the property but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.
