Standing on an unusually spacious plot on a tree lined avenue in the heart of Leicester's Golden Mile, this substantial, deceptively large 1930's detached family home needs to be seen to appreciate its size and quality.

The sizeable gardens lay mainly to the side with double gates opening up to provide ample off road parking beside the brick built single garage.

Whilst the house has 3 good sized reception rooms and 5 bedrooms, there is scope to extend the property or even develop the plot subject to the buyer obtaining necessary permissions, making it attractive to families looking for a large family home as well as investors and property developers.

Set behind a brick wall to the front, the house is entered through a glazed front door into a deep porch. A decorative glazed doorway leads through into a long and very spacious entrance hall with coving to the ceiling, part panelled walls, an immaculately preserved Minton style tiled floor and a staircase rising to the first floor.

There are two good sized reception rooms off the hall to the left, the front one having a large bay window overlooking the front garden and another window overlooking the side providing lots of natural light. The back room, used by the current owners as a sitting room, again has dual aspect windows with a french door leading out onto the rear garden.

At the end of the hall there is a dining room with a bay window overlooking the side garden and a door into the kitchen.
The kitchen, which has been refitted by the current owners and has views over the side garden leads through to a rear hall/utility area, a further utility/storage room and a downstairs wc off. There is also a further garden store attached to the back of the house accessed by an external door. On the first floor there is an impressively long landing giving access to three double sized bedrooms, a single bedroom, currently used as a study, a family bathroom and a separate wc.

The double bedrooms are all very spacious all with a range of fitted furniture and plenty of room for a double bed or two singles. The large family bathroom has a toilet, bidet, sink, a bath with shower over. There is a linen cupboard and scope to add a shower cubicle if required. Next to the bathroom there is a separate wc.

A second staircase leads from the landing up to the second floor which has a landing with cupboard doors leading to eves storage space and a good sized double bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and windows to the side.

The garden, which is mainly lawned, is a particular feature of the property, larger than most in the area and laying mainly to the side with access through double gates from Windsor to provide parking for several vehicles..

Belgrave was originally a small North Leicestershire village with its centre around the Loughborough Road/ Checketts Road junction.

A with many parts of the county, Belgrave saw its population swell in the late 19th century leading to the area expanding northward to meet Charnwood villages of Birstall and Thurmaston , and southwards to join up with the Leicester eventually becoming a part of the city.

Belgrave Road and Melton Road grew into a vibrant shopping area and is famous today for the high concentration of restaurants and takeaways, clothes shops and in particular jewellers which many people believe led to the stretch of road being known as The Golden Mile, famously hosting one of the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India with an average 37,000 people visiting the area during the week long festivities.                                                                                                                                                                                              


The current owners couldn't believe their luck when when they first viewed 20 Windsor Avenue almost 30 years ago. They were looking for a large family home with a big garden in the Belgrave area of Leicester and this delightful 1930's detached house ticked all of the boxes.
" Properties of this size on a large plot within walking distance of all the amenities on along Melton Road and Belgrave Road just don't come onto the market very often." the family all agreed.
They all moved out for a while in the 1990's and the house was rented to another family, but following a program of refurbishment in 2000, they all moved back in.
The owners commented how much they had missed the abundance of space with large rooms and ample off road parking. They all agreed that the area has everything they need on their doorstep; the shops, restaurants and takeaways along the main road with doctors, dentists and schools all nearby.
The sense of community and the cultural amenities are a big draw to the area with Cossington Street Leisure Centre and Abbey Park providing sporting and leisure facilities.
" Whilst we can find everything we need within the local area" they continued " the outer ring road which is just a short drive away leads directly to the M1 and M69 motorways and Leicester City Centre is only about a mile and a half away."

As the family has got bigger over the years, they feel that they have outgrown this lovely 1930,s house and it was with a heavy heart that they have decided to to move on to pastures new.
