This house on Powys Avenue is a lovely property, with a real feeling of space and untapped possibility.
This large, three-bedroomed, detached family home is nestled in its large plot, with attached garage and storage to suit all those wish list plans and ideas.
Oadby is an extremely favoured location within Leicestershire. It has a mention in the Doomsday Book and a long history dating back centuries. The ease of access to excellent schools and a wealth of leisure, medical and recreational facilities provide all amenities at a stone’s throw. Transport links are excellent. Leicester Racecourse and Oadby Parade are close by and the beautiful Botanical Gardens of the University of Leicester are a joy to visit. It sits in the most sought-after Leicestershire postcode - and with Leicester city centre a mere three-mile commute, it really does have it all.
This home is a real find, an opportunity that comes on the market rarely. The current owner lived happily here for many years, enjoying the location, the tranquillity and the community around Oadby itself. There are so many desirable items that come with this property that it’s sure to tick your boxes. Over the years this home has been filled with laughter and love, a real hub for family and friends. And now it could be yours to enjoy just as much, if not more.
When standing outside this home, the walled front garden full of possibilities and drive set the tone - and the need to explore things further is a must.
To the right of the main house is a large garage with plenty of off-road parking. Storage will no longer be an issue and the future prospects of this and the storage space behind are limited only by your imagination.
Once that original wood front door is open, first impressions are full of possibility. The porch and hallway lead to the living room, dining room with pantry, kitchen and downstairs WC/shower room. The staircase to the upper floor rises through this area making the flow through this house both spacious and practical.
From the hall is access to the bright, spacious living room with large bay window overlooking the front garden and french doors opening onto the rear garden. The light, neutral decor and views give a real sense of bringing the outside in, which is made even more possible by the large patio area directly outside those doors.
The dining room, with another large bay window and views over the rear garden is again a great size and filled with natural light – and the pantry is a brilliant addition for all those bits and bobs necessary for daily life. The galley-style kitchen, with direct access to outside and a lovely big window brimming with natural light is full of possibility.
The stairs and airy, spacious landing branch off into three well-sized bedrooms and family bathroom. The words that keep springing to mind here are potential and possibility. A real opportunity to develop this property into the home of your dreams.
Bedroom one to the front of the house is a substantial size with lots of built-in storage. The natural light, and dual aspect views over the front and rear of the property, brought in through the large windows, creates a feeling of space and calm.
Bedroom two, again with views over the front of the property and beyond, has plenty of space for a big bed and furniture to match, creating an effortlessly cosy space to bed down for the night. More in-built storage keeps things practically perfect in every way.
Bedroom three is a good size with views over the rear garden and beyond – and with more built-in storage it’s perfect for a child’s bedroom, nursery or study space. The family bathroom has everything you need for busy mornings and evenings whiled away in the tub.
The west-facing garden to the rear is large, with mature, well-maintained borders and lots of easy maintenance lawn to lie back in and decompress from the day. Long, manicured beds are ready to be filled with flowers and shrubs, and the patio area next to the house is perfect for entertaining and enjoying time outside with family and friends.
The scope and space of this property has to be seen to be believed and the endless possibilities are something to really delve into, engage with and enjoy.
