Property Information

This picturesque, mid terraced property was originally built to provide accommodation for the staff from one of the grand local houses and has been sympathetically modernised to provide all the necessary home comforts whilst retaining its character.
The property is set back from the road, behind another row of terraced houses and therefore provides a peaceful location.
It’s location in the heart of South Knighton is particularly desirable as it is within walking distance of essential local amenities including shops and schools, but is also well placed for access to the City Centre and train station via London Road, as well as a short commute from the M1/ M69 motorway junction.

The accommodation briefly comprises:
* Low maintenance Decked Garden to the front of the property (please note there is a pathway between the house and the decking for access to number 5 and 6 Egerton Houses)
* Lounge with recessed built- in cupboard housing the meters and built- in shelving, as well as a decorative tiled recessed fireplace
* Kitchen Diner furnished with a range of wall and base units, and built- in shelving, integrated washing machine, electric double oven and hob, tumble dryer and glass dining table with 4 chairs
* Double Bedroom furnished with a double bed, built- in wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside table
* Spacious Bathroom furnished with a contemporary white three piece suite, including bath with rainfall shower overhead and a spacious airing cupboard
* Slabbed Patio area to the rear, with brick built outhouses providing useful storage space

The property benefits from gas central heating, via a combi boiler and UPVC double glazing throughout.
