Property Information

Residing above the historic, Grade II listed, former Barclays Bank, these beautiful properties are ideally situated within walking distance of the Highcross shopping centre offering a wide range of shops and restaurants, the famous Leicester outdoor market and food hall, and close to attractions such as the Cathedral, Guild Hall and New Walk museums, as well as Leicester’s popular sporting venues.

Nestled within an exclusive new development in the heart of the City Centre, this beautifully finished one bedroom flat offers the highest levels of both style and convenience.

Spread over four floors, each served by both a lift and well-proportioned staircase, the flats are easily accessible, as are the communal bike store facilities within the courtyard, accessed via the Every Street entrance. The development benefits from a secure entrance system, with CCTV offering security and peace of mind and the flats are all ready to connect to ‘ultra-fast fibre broadband’ via the box already installed.

Although the property does not have onsite parking available, due to its central location, there is parking in nearby car parks on Dover St and long-term parking can be secured from £80 to £120 per month.

Every flat is tastefully decorated throughout in neutral tones, with plush grey carpets to the bedrooms and living areas and practical, yet attractive dark wood effect Karndean flooring to the bathrooms and kitchen areas.

Within flat 2, the accommodation briefly comprises:
•Access via a high-quality entrance door with spy hole and chrome flat number and door furniture
•Internal corridor leading to a spacious bathroom furnished with a contemporary white, three-piece bathroom suite, including a P- shaped bath with a thermostatic Briston bar shower overhead, a wash hand basin with vanity unit and a closed coupled WC. There is also a wall mounted mirror above the wash hand basin
•A bright and airy double bedroom, with built in cupboard housing the generously sized water tank providing the hot water for the flat, benefiting from useful storage above. There is a uPVC door in the bedroom which leads out on to the light well, but this will be kept locked during the tenancy and just used if necessary, for maintenance access by the landlords
•A spacious living kitchen, plush grey carpet to the living area and practical Karndean flooring to the kitchen. The kitchen is furnished with a range of white, high gloss wall and base units and comes with all the essential appliances, including a Bosch electric oven, ceramic hob and extractor fan, a full-size dishwasher and a Kenwood 50/50 fridge-freezer. There are dual aspect windows, flooding the room with light

There are just 10 flats within this beautiful development and early viewing is highly recommended and only 5 remaining
