Property Description

Knightsbridge Estate Agents and Valuers have pleasure in offering for sale ‘Wychwood', a delightful and distinctive individual 1930's detached family home located on the exclusive tree-lined Morland Avenue off London Road in the fashionable and highly regarded leafy suburb of Stoneygate bordering Oadby. The property, which is offered for sale with no upward chain, is well presented, offering spacious and versatile living accommodation, yet still has excellent potential to provide additional living accommodation, including extensions to both the side or rear, or conversion of loft space (subject to planning consent), substantially increasing the property's footprint.

‘Wychwood' retains a wealth of original features and character, included leaded glazed windows, oak doors and parquet wooden flooring, and sits on a superb plot with an attractive private traditional-style rear garden, with sunny southerly rear aspect. Properties of this calibre rarely come to the open market with such character and potential. It is of the agent's opinion that this is one of the most sought-after properties and roads within the immediate area, for both its current accommodation and potential.

The property is well located for everyday amenities and services including renowned local public and private schooling, including 'Leicester High' school for girls, which is within minutes' walk of the property together with 'Leicester grammar school' in nearby Great Glen, nursery day-care, Leicester University, Leicester Royal Infirmary and city general hospitals.
