Shanklin Drive, South Knighton, Leicester


Knightsbridge Estate Agents have pleasure in offering a unique opportunity to purchase this particularly attractive, architect-designed family home located on the ever-popular Shanklin Drive in the fashionable and highly regarded leafy suburb of South Knighton within minutes' walk of Queens Road shopping parade in neighbouring Clarendon Park. The property has, until now, never entered the open market, and was individually designed and commissioned by the vendors. We understand the property sits on a double plot (114 & 116) originally reserved for two dwellings (however legal clarification would be required of this statement). This provides an exciting opportunity for a purchaser to be only the second owner and presents huge potential to individualise, update and extend to purchasers taste. The property retains a wealth of original features and character, including leaded windows and parquet wooden flooring, and offers spacious and versatile living accommodation, yet still has excellent potential to provide additional living accommodation and alterations, including conversion of integral garage, loft space, or further extensions, increasing the property's accommodation and value (subject to necessary consent). The accommodation includes attractive entrance hall, sitting room/dining room with leaded bay window to the front elevation, a delightful through family room in excess of 24 feet floor to ceiling windows and glazed door overlooking rear garden, spacious breakfast-kitchen leading to large lobby/utility area with outbuilding and WC. First floor accommodation comprises of a principal bathroom and second bathroom, four double bedrooms including master bedroom with bay window overlooking rear garden, bedroom five/study, and a large attic space. Outside enjoys an attractive, traditional-style frontage and off-road parking. It is the agent's opinion that this is one of the most individual and characterful homes currently available within the immediate area. Naturally, we are expecting a good level of response to the open market. Internal viewing comes with the agent's highest recommendation, to fully appreciate this type of detached property, which rarely comes onto the market.

The property is well served for everyday amenities and services including renowned local public and private schooling and nursery day care, Leicester city centre and Leicester University, the Royal Infirmary and City General hospitals, together with London Road station and New Walk. The property is also within minutes' walk of Queens Road shopping parade in neighbouring Clarendon Park, with its specialist shops, bars, boutiques and restaurants
