A FINE EXAMPLE OF A VICTORIAN FAMILY HOME retaining original features throughout set on a DOUBLE WIDTH PLOT with huge potential. Set over three floors the accommodation offers 5 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, off street parking with mature gardens and GARAGE/COACH HOUSE.

It is rare that a property retaining so many original features presents itself to the market within Loughborough town centre. Exhibiting features such as bay, sash and arched windows, decorative ceiling cornice and a magnificent light rose within the lounge plus a beautifully crafted staircase with carved spindles, oak hand rail and ornate newel posts along with other typical Victorian features such as high ceilings, recessed cupboards and wardrobes and deep skirting boards.

Set on a double width plot which allows off street parking as part of a mature garden which has a garage/coach house all offering fantastic features of this family home and offering potential for enlarging or developing the property (subject to planning consent and an uplift clause which is detailed under the agents notes of these sales particulars).

Upon entering the property you are greeted by the beautiful return staircase which has an under stairs storage cupboard. There is access to the sitting room which has timber flooring throughout, a tiled fireplace and a dual aspect to both front and side elevations with ceiling cornice and light rose. Also off the hall is a cloakroom/w.c.

The second reception room enjoys a rear aspect with a tiled fireplace and a separate breakfast room has original sash windows to either side elevations, and built-in Victorian pantry cupboards and drawers.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a breakfast kitchen which enjoys storage, appliance spaces for washing machine, dishwasher along with a built-in oven. There are windows to the side and rear elevations plus access into the garden.

The return staircase leads to the landing where it also continues to the second floor. There are three first floor double bedrooms of which the front facing bedroom has sash windows, built-in Victorian wardrobe and boarded fireplace. The remaining two bedrooms enjoy rear aspects of which one has an original built-in Victorian wardrobe and the other a shower cubicle and wash hand basin. Concluding the first floor accommodation is a bathroom and separate w.c.

The second floor offers what would have been originally servant quarters to the home and gives two double bedrooms both with arched windows to the side elevation enjoying views along the traditional Victorian streets of Loughborough. The front bedroom has a large double built-in wardrobe.

Upon approaching the property a pathway leads to the side entrance and a five bar gate leads onto a gravelled driveway flanked by a variety of mature apple trees. The driveway eventually leads to a garage/coach house which is brick built with a slate roof and would make an excellent workshop or home office (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). The garden continues to the rear of the property and is walled to one side with Victorian blue paviours, lawn and herbaceous areas. An outside store houses the central heating boiler and has water facilities.
