I was involved with this development way back when it was first being built and it is so interesting to see how people have adapted and stamped their mark on them over the years. The owners of this ‘Leicester’ style townhouse have done an amazing job on it – one of the best I have seen. I’d actually rather have this restyled version that a detached house on the estate given its bedroom sizes and great corner plot. This is going to go (quickly I think) to one very lucky buyer!

Full description

This smart semi detached home has been beautifully restyled by the current owners including a brilliant garage conversion meaning the home now has five bedrooms, four of which are generous doubles. Warmed by gas central heating and with UPVC double glazing the home is arranged over three storeys and is perfect for a growing family. The entrance level has a superb, slickly designed kitchen/breakfast room to the front with the living room spanning the width of the home at the rear with french doors to the garden. The original attached garage has been beautifully converted to provide an additional large double bedroom which could equally be used as a separate dining room - giving it that extra flexibility. There is a smart refitted cloakroom to complete this level. The first floor provides two good sized double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes; a single bedroom/study and stylish new family bathroom. The top floor is devoted to the fabulous master bedroom suite, with a light and spacious double bedroom featuring a wall of built in wardrobes as well as a luxurious restyled en-suite shower room. The home has a driveway to the front providing parking and gated side access. It occupies a generous corner plot giving the advantage of a good sized and sunny enclosed garden with superb large decked terrace leading out from the lounge - ideal for al-fresco dining. WE LOVE IT!
