This is a super home for those who would like a town location but aren't that keen on noise and passing traffic - Albany Street is lovely and quiet, yet has all the convenience of local shops, takeaways and pubs within walking distance. It's also ideally located for access to most of the main roads leading out of Loughborough without having to negotiate the town centre itself.

The basics: inside
You get loads of room in this semi-detached 1930s property: on the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen/diner with views to the rear garden, and a lovely lounge with bay window to the front that catches the afternoon sunshine.
Upstairs there are two large light-filled double bedrooms and a shower room with double-width shower enclosure and a large rain head, plus a vanity sink.

The basics: outside
The property has off-road parking for two cars, plus you can easily fit a motorbike down the side access for safe storage. The enclosed garden has a patio and lawn area that catches the sun for most of the day. Simply by sitting in different areas of the lovely garden you can enjoy morning coffee in the sunshine, lunch outside serenaded by the many songbirds in the area, and a jolly barbecue later on. Sounds good doesn't it?! There is also a large secure brick-built outbuilding with power and water providing storage and the potential for a great workshop or studio.

Address and directions:
The address is 3 Albany Street which is easiest to find from Alan Moss Road; it’s the street with the corner shop at the entrance, and number 3 will then be towards the far end of the street on your right. If you approach from Knightthorpe Road, Albany Street is between Deane Street and Carington Street. Number 3 will then be part of the first building on your left after the narrow section.
Please note that Google StreetView has not surveyed Albany Street but you can see the entrance to the street from Alan Moss Road.

Practical details:
The property is fully double glazed, with gas central heating provided by a combi boiler and managed by a Nest heating control system. Loft insulation and nPower smart meters for gas and electricity have been installed.
