4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Stephenson Close, Leicester, LE9

2 4 2
Occupying a generous cul-de-sac corner plot in the sought-after village of Broughton Astley in south Leicestershire, this four-bedroom detached house benefits from a superb layout, mature front and rear gardens, off-road parking and a double garage.



Downstairs, you’ll be treated to a gleaming breakfast kitchen with separate utility, a cloakroom and three interconnected receptions areas culminating in a high-quality, garden-facing conservatory. On the top floor, discover four immaculate bedrooms with a master en suite and a family bathroom.



A House with Charm



Stephenson Close is a peaceful residential offshoot thronged with detached homes finished by handsome mock-Tudor exteriors. This wonderful family residence is no exception, boasting symmetrical timbering with herringbone brick infills, leaded casement windows and prominent gables that grant instant appeal as you pull onto the driveway.



Straight ahead, two doors reveal an integral garage that links into the main house via the utility room – great on rainy days. Meanwhile, hedge- and shrub-lined lawns to either side add to the leafy, quiet feel as you come to a tiled front porch with outdoor lighting.



Home Sweet Home



A solid wood front door with leaded side windows opens into a large hallway where a white-painted staircase matches the skirting and a high, coved ceiling. The gentle neutral colour tones and textures continue throughout for a calming, inviting atmosphere for a happy family home, with the fitted cream carpet underfoot extending into the two main receptions.



Just behind the stairs lies a cloakroom where two-tone paintwork, beautiful patterned floor tiles and a white-metro splashback provide the backdrop for a modern close-coupled loo and a pedestal basin.



Turn left from the front entrance, heading through solid double doors into a big living room illuminated by a fantastic leaded casement window. The softer glow from the central light fitting and wall lamps harmonise with the flames in an electric fireplace set within an exquisite stone mantle and hearth.



Carry on through double doors into a formal dining room spacious enough for large family gatherings, with the adjoining kitchen allowing for the easy transfer of meals. Glazed sliding doors open up the central entertaining area of the home to the light-filled conservatory, connecting the house into the garden.



With a newly replaced tiled roof, stone tiles underfoot, a ring of awning windows and recessed downlights to the ceiling, the conservatory is both practical and cosy – ideal for year-round parties that capitalise on the terrace just beyond the glazed French doors and the lovely garden views in all directions.



Time to explore the kitchen, which adjoins a utility with more workspace, a separate sink and a door into the integral garage. Mottled floor tiles, multiple chrome sockets, and chrome handles to a vast range of glossy white cabinetry complement a quartz worktop with drainer grooves, all brightened by recessed downlights, casement oriel and side windows and a leaded glazed door to the garden.



Enjoy your breakfast or drinks with friends at the bar, cooking up fabulous meals with the help of integrated Siemens double ovens, a gas hob with stainless steel and glass extractor hood, and a concealed fridge-freezer and dishwasher.



Sleep Well



Ascend the staircase in the hallway to a part-galleried landing with matching décor, a window to the side aspect, and a handy airing cupboard. All the double bedrooms come with fitted cream carpets and integrated wardrobes, with the fourth bedroom boasting a cute window nook for reading or positioning a rocking chair if using as a nursery.



Locate the king-sized master at the end of the landing facing the front garden via a big casement window. It also benefits from a stylishly tiled en suite with an equally contemporary shower enclosure and radiator, a suspended vanity basin unit, and a close-coupled loo. The white sanitaryware and fitted wall mirror also help to reflect light from another casement window and the recessed downlighters above.



In the family bathroom across the hall, you’ll find a brightly lit, fully tiled bathroom comprising of a deep bathtub with a glass-screened shower above, a suspended basin and a back-to-wall loo.



Al Fresco



From the front lawn, a wooden side gate leads to the rear garden, where a sizable paved terrace abuts doors to the kitchen and conservatory. A couple of steps bring you to a raised lawn replete with mature trees, shrubs, and flowerbeds. Enclosed by fencing, brick walls and neighbouring trees, the garden feels very secluded and will attract wildlife in all seasons. There’s also a gravelled patio where you can sit and enjoy a view back to the house.



Out and About



Broughton Astley is a large village of ancient origins, formed as an amalgamation of three communities. Situated in the Harborough district of Leicestershire, the village is just 9 miles from the centre of Leicester and about 14 miles from Coventry.



Near St Mary’s church, first documented in 1220, you will find a large recreation ground, skate park and cricket club – ideal for families with young children and pets – two Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ pre-schools, the Old Mill Primary and Thomas Estley Community College. The college also hosts a wide range of night classes and sporting activities, runs an ‘Outstanding’ pre-school and offers a parent-toddler playgroup.



Other fantastic amenities include a scattering of play parks, shops including supermarkets, a post office and a chemist, as well as a riding school and Broughton Astley Leisure Centre.



Trains from Narborough station (5.3mi) run regularly to London St Pancras International (c.90mins), useful for commuting and visiting friends and family in the South East.



The village is well placed for travel, being roughly 7 miles from two M1 motorway junctions – No. 20 (in the south, near Lutterworth) and No. 21 (in the north). The A5 and the M69 are also close by. The main access road is the B581 – linking the areas of Barwell and Earl Shilton near the A47 to the small village of Dunton Bassett near the A426 (Leicester-Lutterworth-Rugby road).
