A throwback to a time of style and grandeur, this late Victorian Mance stands on one of Leicester's favourite roads in the sought after and highly regarded suburb of Stoneygate.
Requiring some redecoration but having immense charm and character, 5 Holmfield Road,, stands just off London Road behind a mature screen of trees and shrubs.
The large entrance hall having high ceilings with decorative plasterwork: deep skirting boards and a grand staircase rising to the first floor creates an extremely impressive welcome and sets the scene for what's to come.
There are three reception rooms, all equally as impressive and of a size that is to be expected in a property of this quality and stature. Two of the rooms, both with high, ornate ceilings, grand fireplaces and deep windows overlook the front with the third having French doors set in a deep bay, leading out onto the patio.
A rear hallway leads to the huge, extended 26' family, living, breakfast, Cooks fitted kitchen with an Aga, underfloor heating and two sets of double glazed French doors seamlessly extending the room into the private south facing rear garden.
A door leads off the kitchen to a lobby which serves as a walk-in larder, with further doors leading to the outside of the property ( formerly the tradesman's entrance) and the cellar, currently used for storage. A cloak room and a downstairs wc off the entrance hall completes the ground floor accommodation.
A very impressive staircase leads off the entrance hall onto a half landing with a large window overlooking the side, allowing lots of natural light to flood into the hall and onto the spacious galleried landing above.
There are four extremely spacious double bedrooms and a utility room leading off the landing. The bedrooms are all of very generous proportions and have their own en-suite bathrooms.
The master bedroom is a huge 18' x 15' plus a bay window and having a walk in wardrobe/ dressing area leading into the en-suite bathroom.
Access to the vast loft space, which has a dormer window overlooking the front is currently provided by a hatch with a retractable ladder. There is however, subject to the necessary consent, scope to add another staircase and create extra bedroom space if required.
Outside the property to the front, the garden is bounded by a low brick wall and screened from the street by mature trees and shrubs. There is a driveway providing car standing and access to the attached brick garage with loft storage space above.
The south facing rear garden is a true feature, providing a seamless extension to the house when the glazed doors in the kitchen and dining room are opened up, or a peaceful and very private sanctuary for the family to relax.
A patio area runs the full width of the house and round to the side into a gardener's area with a potting shed and pedestrian access to the garage with a very mature and well stocked area beyond.
With its name originating from the Old English “ Stone Road”, Stoneygate which was designated a conservation area in 1978 grew in popularity during the late 1800’s as the population of Leicester grew and wealthy professionals and industrialists looked for a settlement close to the city centre.
Straddling the northern section of London Road which was then and remains today, one of the main arterial routes into the city from the south, Stoneygate is separated from the city on its northern border by 69 acres of parkland known as Victoria Park. Today the park hosts a number of events and activities throughout the year but was until 1883, home to the city’s race course until it relocated approximately 2 miles south to the nearby Leicesters...Read more
