With fewer being built, bungalows hold their value well so were delighted to be able to add another to our growing Midlands portfolio.
Located in the suburb of Thurmaston to the north-east of Leicester, the property offers many of the advantages of village living, but with all the conveniences of a city close by. Price Way, a residential street of modern homes with open countryside just a short distance away. Bus routes nearby offer links to the centre of Leicester itself while Syston railway station is a few minutes away by car. Amenities within easy reach include a sizable retail park, Thurmaston Community Centre and the local library plus the Elizabeth Park Sports Centre and the Humberstone Heights Golf Club. The area is also served by some excellent schools, with Eastfield Primary School, Soar Valley College and Rushy Mead Academy all rated as outstanding in their most recent Ofsted reports.
Access to the property is via the front door which opens onto a hallway with internal doors to all the rooms save for the dining room currently used as an extension of the main reception room which is accessed via an archway in the main living room or glass-panelled double doors from the kitchen. The strikingly decorated main reception room with wood laminate floor includes a feature fireplace with gas fire and marble-effect surround and a recessed mantle offering space for shelving, perhaps for ornamental display. The flooring is matched in the dining room area which leads in turn to sliding patio doors which open onto the rear garden. The modern, fitted kitchen has a dark marble-effect tiled floor, with light-coloured wood base and wall units with granite worktops incorporating a gas oven and hob with extractor fan over, light-and-dark chequered splash-back tiles above all the work surfaces, space and plumbing for a washing machine and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap. A window and glass panelled door into the rear garden let in plenty of light but adjustable spotlights also illuminate the work spaces. The modern house bathroom includes a bath with glass screen and shower over, a sink with storage cupboard beneath, a W/C with separate shower head attachment plus a heated towel rail. The property includes two generously-sized double bedrooms and one single bedroom, each with radiators and currently with their own distinct décor. Warmth is provided by a programmable gas-fired central heating system with all radiators including thermostatic controls, cavity wall and loft insulation and double glazing.
The property is fronted by an extensive blocked paved driveway offering parking space for several vehicles which leads to the front door and the detached single garage. A secure timber gate also opens onto the rear of the property where a delightful, private, south facing rear garden can be found. The outside space includes a block-paved path leading to a patio area with trellis above for climbing plants and a storage shed, all surrounded by mature trees and shrubs offering privacy and shade.
In our opinion the property offers a buyer an excellent investment opportunity as well as comfortable living in a peaceful and convenient location. Ideal for second-steppers or even a family looking to down size from a large property, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate both the potential and size of the accommodation on offer.
