About this property
A stunning five/six bedroom Edwardian detached property sitting on an unusually large plot, having been lovingly refurbished by the current owners over a number of years and now providing a wonderful family home with handsome accommodation over three floors including a refitted dining kitchen, a superb master bedroom suite and beautiful deep gardens.
Morland Avenue was constructed circa 1904 to the designs of renowned Leicester architects Stockdale Harrison and was set out for the landowner Sir Israel Hart, a local councillor and subsequent city mayor. It remains one of the city's finest examples of individually designed early 20th century suburban residential architecture, and today enjoys an excellent sense of community.
Stoneygate has long been regarded as one of the most favoured locations within the County, its popularity derived not only from the mixture of housing stock but also ease of access to popular schooling in both the state and private sector, a wealth of leisure and recreational facilities, niche shopping along Queens Road and Allandale Road, and Leicester city centre with its professional quarters and mainline railway station are within a twenty-minute commute. The area is particularly popular with academics and those in the medical profession as the location is conveniently located for the hospitals and universities.
