About this property

A stunning, one bedroom apartment located on the first floor of this Victorian building, on the peripheries of Syston, surrounded by beautiful open countryside.

The Grove has a postal address of Syston, a charming Charnwood village with a good range of amenities, however it is actually situated within the boundaries of Barkby, a thriving, quintessentially English village enjoying a strong sense of community spirit and offering a popular primary school, two public houses and a renowned cricket ground. The location is convenient for access to major road networks, ideal for commuters and just a short walk from a mainline railway station. Leicester city centre just six miles distant offers universities, a teaching Hospital, professional and cultural quarters.

The building is entered via a communal entrance hall housing the stairs and lift to all floors. On the first floor a solid wood door leads into a private entrance hall with hardwood flooring, housing the meter cupboard. The open plan living area has hardwood flooring and two picture windows overlooking the communal grounds. The kitchen provides a good range of eye and base level units with drawers with ample preparation surfaces, tiled splashbacks, a stainless steel sink and drainer unit, integrated electric oven with stainless steel and glass extractor unit above, integrated dishwasher and tiled flooring.

The double bedroom has built-in wardrobes and two uPVC double glazed windows. The bathroom provides a bath with glass shower door and shower over, low flush WC and pedestal wash hand basin, full height heated chrome towel rail, electric shaver point, fully tiled walls and floor.

The property is set back from Barkby Lane, holding a private position approached by a tree-lined driveway giving access to allocated resident's and visitor's parking spaces, and communal gardens with several entertaining areas and barbecue area.
